      I have to say, Susanna, that I thought it would be so hard to write daily, but I’m getting into the routine of it, and it’s been very fun.

      Thank you for all your support and great content too, Susanna!

    I know I get strength from your commitment and dedication and that means a lot to those of us that work at home by ourselves.

    • Heather Stephens says:

      Aww, thanks so much Liz. What a sweet comment! I’m glad to help feed your energy and enthusiasm. It helps me too!

      Thanks for your support and friendship!

  3. Hi Heather,

    Thank you for your kind words and the thoughtful mention.

    Thanks for sharing awesome value on a consistent basis 🙂

      Thanks for the incredible comment. I feel the same about you for sure!


  5. P.S. Very hard to choose my favourite post, Heather – but I absolutely enjoyed the Beginner Blogger Q and A series 🙂

    I look forward to more killer content in February – no pressure 😉

    ((Warm hugs)),

    • Heather Stephens says:

      No pressure, huh? Well I love the pressure to keep pushing myself, so keep pressuring me! 🙂

      I’m glad you like the beginner blogger series. I’m getting incredible feedback on it and wondering if that’s a direction I should go? I’ll have to play around with it some more and see what happens.

      I really enjoy writing the series too. 🙂

      Warm hugs back,

  6. Hey Heather,

    It’s great to see how you show your top commentators gratitude for adding great comments to your blog. Hopefully I can be one of your top commentators next month. But I want to say congratulations to you for having a great month in January and I wish you even more success for the rest of the year.

    I thought the Beginner Blogger Q and A series was great as I learned a lot, so I’m not surprised you have four of them in your hot content of the month. Thanks for sharing Heather.

    • Heather Stephens says:

      Hi John!

      Thanks for the congratulations. I’m so glad you like the beginner blogger series. I’m having lots of fun writing it and plan to continue it here and there, indefinitely.

      January was a bit of a crazy month, but I loved it all and I hope that every month of this year is just as awesome. I’ve connected and met so many wonderful people, I might not have met otherwise.

      Thanks for the awesome comment, John! I’m glad to know what things to write about, that you’ll enjoy!

    I have thoroughly enjoyed been part of the challenge and I am sure we can all concur that being under the wings of such a great leader and ‘mama bear’ makes it that much better! Thanks so much! ~Jayne~

      Get those great ideas out of your head and into the hands of someone you can help with them! Make that your February goal?

      I do feel a bit like a mama bear and I’m so proud and excited for what everyone’s doing. Wish I had 48 hours in a day so I could comment on ever post you all publish.

      Keep it up!
