Living With Cancer Ranked 13th

Living with Cancer has been ranked 13th of the Top 50 Cancer Sites & Resources by the Asbestos News Cancer Blog. That is kind of exciting.

When I started this blog back in August of 2008 I lacked the confidence to share it with anyone. Finally in about October I sent the link to my good friend Arlene and said to her ... would you have a peek and see what you think. She thought it was a pretty good idea and encouraged me to continue writing and sharing. It still took till December before I was confident enough to give the link out to most everyone I knew.

Today I am blown away by the support I get. I don't know where I'd be in this cancer journey without this blog and my online friends.

Thank you friends ...

That's phenomenal news about being ranked at 13th. But it is really no surprise. Your blog is always so down to earth and matter of fact. You provide lots of good info but never in a preaching sort of way. And any support you received is being returned by you many times over to those who follow your blog.

Keep up the blogging .... and the sharing!

Congrats! It just goes to show that there are those of us who can and do benefit from reading about your experiences. That is part of the reason I started my blog--so that I could share my experience with others and help them feel less alone because that's exactly how I felt at first. Your blog is great and I read all of your updates! It's so nice that you have the following that you do! Keep up the great work!
