It's been almost two years since I first started typing words onto Redemption Pictures .
Honestly, I've been amazed at the response. You've read these blog posts, and passed them along to thousands of new readers. You've shared your stories with me and with each other in guest posts, in comments, and in dozens of emails.
If this has been worth anything at all, maybe at the end of the day we all feel a little bit less alone.
For all of it - this community, this friendship, this support - I'm so very grateful.
Because I love what Redemption Pictures has become, I'm more committed than ever to writing, curating, and sharing great content in 2014.
But I need your help.
I need to get my hands on a laptop (pun intended). Nothing fancy; a friend is selling me her used one for just a few hundred dollars. And I need several hundred dollars to pay for a year of hosting on Redemption Pictures. [update: this goal has been successfully met, thanks to your generosity!]
Any additional money will allow me to invest more time in finding good words to share with you. (I say "finding" because it's not just me writing - I have guest posts, book reviews, and giveaways lined up in the coming weeks and months.)
I'm thankful for all the support and encouragment you've offered along the way. This has been a wild adventure, certainly something larger than myself.
