New Year Greetings and I am back (almost)

I just wanted to drop by to wish everyone a belated Happy New Year and say that I wish you all happiness, peace and good health for 2012.

As some of you know, life dealt me a huge blow with the loss sof my much loved Dad in November and completely turned my life upside down. As well as dealing with the loss, which hit my whole family very hard, we have had to deal with clearing the house as well as support my very frail Mum who is in a nursing home.

I would like to thank all my friend here and on Squidoo who sent me such thoughtful messages of support both publicly and privately. It is at times like this that you realise that making friends online leads to so many positive experiences that can help you through the negative ones.

I have only made two New Year's Resolutions - one of which I will share with you here, and that is to make Wizzley my prime publishing platform for the first part of 2012.

The reason being that I am just so impressed with the amount of time that is being put in by the Wizzley Team to keep the site clean and bug-free. I am convinced that this investment of time is going to benefit all of us through 2012, as Wizzley continues to establish itself as an ethical and "clean" site.

Although I do not have as many pages as some of the other members on here, I am already seeing sales and I am looking forward to publishing more pages.

This week I am in a show but once that is over (and I have recovered) I look froward to being more active her on Wizzley Kiss

We wish you a peaceful and prosperous New Year as well, AJ.

Wizzley is definitely a rising star and you should be a big beneficiary of our common success. Remember, back then, when you encouraged me to take the leap?   Smile

Break a leg, AJ.  That is what we say in the US to support actors, etc.  :)

Good to see you my friend and when they shout "he's behind you!" in good old pantomine tradition - it's not us! Laughing

It's wonderful to get an update from you, AJ, although the news is very sad. I'm sorry about your loss. I know the transition is massive. 

Glad to see you back at Wizzley. I look forward to what you write.

Hi there AJ-

I'm just newly back at Wizzley too. I'm with you on making it my number one platform in 2012. It looks great and is so easy to use, plus everyone is so helpful, plus people seem to be making money!

I also lost my dad in 2011, and am spending lots of hours with my 88 year old mum. She spent much of 2011 in hospital, and had a thyroid op 10 days ago. She's stayed with us for most of the last few weeks over Christmas and the op, but is now home. Yesterday she asked me to help relocate her laptop to a warmer spot so she can surf the web and send emails in the evening!

You're never too old to do new things!

Hoping 2012 goes well for you and all Wizzlers.Smile

It's very nice to see you again AJ and I look forward to reading pages written by one of my favorite online people.

I'm not much of a writer, but I think Wizzley is a great place - to write and hang out too!

Welcome back,

It's good to have you back, AJ. It sounds like you have been through a difficult time. My sympathy on the loss of your father. 

Here's hoping for sunny days ahead. I look forward to reading the Wizzley pages you create this year.
