• I’ll second that motion, Gwen! I definitely don’t view this as the “end” just because the challenge is officially over. Heck, this is just the beginning!

    I can feel it in my bones. 🙂

    Thank you, as always, for your kind words!

    And I want you to know that I tried to post a comment today at your blog (and several others!) and something strange is happening. My comments are not showing up. I hit “submit” and poof! Nothing is on the page. Nada. Zip. Zilch.

    I’m hoping when I awaken tomorrow the problem will have miraculously resolved itself. But just in case … I’ve sent out an S.O.S. to everyone I know with technical expertise!

    Keep your fingers crossed,

  • Such a nice post Melanie. That really sums up everything. I hope we all can “continue” to write in our blogs and visit and support one another as we build our businesses.

    Congratulations to you!!!

    I can’t tell you how much it means to me that you stopped by. And what wonderful praises! Thank You.

    This was my first blogging challenge, as well, and it’s been an amazing adventure. I had no idea I would meet such a variety of characters … and I DO MEAN characters! 🙂

    No other event I’ve ever been involved with has demonstrated such camaraderie and support and the opportunity to cross paths with so many talented professionals like … YOU!


  • Hi Melanie, Great post, both thought provoking and visually appealing. This was my first blog challenge and I want to thank you for leading by example. I learned a lot just watching how you reached out to the community and how you put so much thought and care into each of your posts. Thanks for reaching out!

    All the best,

  • That’s good news, Terrie! Glad you made it over here.

    I compiled a list of “C’s” a mile long and tried my best to narrow it down to those that were near and dear to my heart – the experiences that impacted and empowered me the most.

    Hope you’ll be joining Jeanette’s challenge in June!

    Can’t wait to meet you on May 15th,

  • Great post!!!!! I agree with everything you wrote – i copied it and will incorporate it in the group pdf. Thanks for directing me over here


  • “Community” – I like that, Steve!

    And you’re right. I got a tremendous sense of community by participating in this challenge – unlike any other event I’ve joined!

    A gigantic Congratulations! back at ya,

    “See” you in the blogosphere. 🙂

  • One more is Community – this group is a great community of people helping each other and building their online presence at the same time.

    Congratulations Melanie!

  • What can I say, Heather? Great minds think alike!

    I had all of your “C” words (and more) on my list. Just had to cut if off at some point so people wouldn’t be reading on for days! 😉

    And “Congratulations!” back at ya. I hope our friendship lasts a lifetime!

    Oh, and a few more “C’s” that describe YOU …

    Cool, Clever, Compassionate – and the Commander of “Calm”!


  • “C” also stands for: Courage, Camaraderie, Closeness & Caring. Oh, and one last thing – Congratulations!!!! xx 🙂
