What can be more rewarding than doing what you love and having people all over the world supporting you and sharing your joy? Blogging has given me exactly that, and it's not only readers that are always there with beautiful words and understanding, fellow tennis bloggers are also by my side, even if I'm not in touch with them daily. One of such bloggers is Erwin of Tennis Served Fresh. We started the blogging journey in about the same time, Erwin a little bit before me, and it's nice to have colleagues that are your peers when it comes to blogging.
When I turned on my laptop today and started going through my blog feed, I was surprised to see a picture of myself. Then I read a wonderful title: "It's nice to grow old with someone". In the article Erwin acknowledges how good it is to develop along someone, and invites his readers to join my giveaways. I'd like to mention that Tennis Served Fresh is the first blog/webpage that ever linked to Women's Tennis Blog and it made me ecstatic :). It was at the time Women's Tennis Blog still looked like a construction site, without images, with no design, or anything. Just black text and plain purple and green header saying "women's tennis" on WordPress.com.
The title of TSF's post inspires me to mention one thing. When Aaress of On the Baseline sold her blog, I was very saddened because I felt like I lost one of just a handful of blogging peers and also, it made me feel old haha (the blog is still alive though, offering equally rich content). However, Rich of Down the Line and Diane of Women Who Serve are still there, persevering in doing an amazing job.
Thanks to my readers and my fellow bloggers, my fourth birthday party is a real festival! Cheers! (photo courtesy of my friend Brankica)
