Summing It Up...My Year At Wikinut

I Joined Wikinut a year ago today, so I would like to invite you all to have a 'peek' at my Wikinut journey over the past year.. please join me and come on in...

Finding Wikinut

I recall searching through the internet and trying to find the best writing site for me.
I looked in on quite a few before making my choice.

Wikinut appealed to me more than any of the others on offer.

The initial reason for choosing to write online was potential earning capacity, however, my passion for writing and the growth and development of my writing, very soon became my priority.

Wikinut provided the perfect platform and learning ground to do just that.

In the year that I have been writing on Wikinut, my passion, , my enthusiasm, and most importantly,
my writing ability, have all benefited greatly form being part of this great site.

Helping Hands

I have learned a lot from the moderators, one in particular gave me a'big shove' to incorporate links within my articles, also pointing out the benefits of adding links to my previous posts when submitting an article for publication.

I didn't like that LINK BUTTON, I would look at it and think "go away"...
..so I avoided it like the plague, pretending it didn't exist

However, I knew I wouldn't get past him if I didn't try and conquer the fear of the 'dreaded link button',
so I began experimenting with links, hey presto, I became confident enough to start using the link button, for which I was very grateful.

Bev..
Oh and then there was the video embedding, questions about this, questions about that.
Then I met my mentor.. and now my dearest friend.. our Songbird, who helped me immensely.
This One Is For Songbird With Thanks...

What Bev did for me helped me to grow on Wikinut, so I would just like to say our Songbird..
thanks again Bev, you're one in a million....and one fantastic singer too!!

What was so amazing for me was that I went on to have the privilege of making these you tube videos for the lady who taught me how to incorporate videos in my wikinut posts...how awesome is that!!
I couldn't have wished for something nicer.

Growing...

One year...and 70 articles later..yeah it's been a blast.

I enjoy adding those personal touches to my posts, by creating some of my own images, to hang on the walls of my articles.

Wikinut has given me the scope to expand creativity in both writing and presentation.

Friendship and Fabulous Writers

Finding wikinut, helping hands, friendship..and growing
sure has kept my writing flowing...
great writers, great friends, shared love and respect..
through the tough times have kept me going....

..Wouldn't have missed this for the world
it's proved to be one of my better choices..
making new friends from all over the world
so many strong, compassionate, impressive and incredible voices..

So to all of you out there..
from 'yer Mariah fae Glasga dear'.
thank you for being the people you are
gone yersels.. Aye...it's been one hell of a year....

So I'll love ye and leave ye fur just noo.. wi a 'wee song fur the lassies'

Thanks Mariah for the richly deserved acknowledgement and tribute to Songbird who is not only a class of her own in her posts but never fails to encourage others generously. Though I have not embedded videos I remember with gratitude my dear friend Judy Ellen for encouraging me to link my articles and showing the way - siva

Good morning, Mariah, your generous spirit is a testiment to your mentor. This exciting milestone for you and your evident learning curve give hope to many, another lesson from your mentor. This is an evolving site and many of us find valuable help and support here. You contribute greatly to that, Mariah. ~Marilyn

Marilyn thank you, I'm proud to be able to now call you my friend, as well as being the impressive and inspiring writer that you are.
You more than any of us here provide valuable support.. which vastly expands beyond the articles you have written to encourage and aid writers to look 'right across the board' when putting a post together.
I very much appreciate your comments.. such warm feedback xx

Good job Maria.
