I feel very humble today. When I came up with the idea of 'opening' my garden as a fundraiser, I initially felt very excited about it. However, the doubts soon crept in - would anyone visit? Never mind about making a donation. I wanted so much to make the experience worthwhile for everyone who came to visit, yet it was very much stepping off into the unknown.
Well, you 've exceeded my expectations. Not only have you visited, but the fundraising target's been exceeded on the very first weekend! And you've said there's so much content, it needs several visits to take it all in. Plus you think it's like visiting my garden for real. Then I find lots of you have put a piece on your own blogs and provided a link. Keep passing the message on - the more people who come to visit my garden the better :D
So today, I need to say a big thank you to all of you. I'll be visiting you soon and putting up a blogroll of honour. I need to work out the first couple of prize giveaways too. I've also got an exciting new donation for the prize giveaways to tell you about. Please bear with me, there's lots of comments, e-mails, links and donations to get through, so I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment.
But most importantly, the blogging community is making a difference - right here, right now.
