A Thank You Letter from Ahmeli

Dear Readers,

I want to express a heartfelt thank you to all of you who have read my posts throughout the past year. After much consideration and prayer, I have decided to stop posting on Ahmeli.

Although I have enjoyed the art of writing during this time, and hearing the viewpoints of readers, this is the decision that I have ultimately come to. After giving myself one year, I knew I would reflect on where I am in life and analyze what path to next take. My love for writing has not faded, but motherhood is my primary focus right now and that is where I want to continue to invest my time and energy. With another Little One on the way, I know that I will have even less time to write in the manner in which I am comfortable with. Writing takes time and preparation, in my opinion, and it is not something that I want to feel pushed to get done by a certain deadline because then my writing is not as authentic as I wish for it to be. Additionally, to gain more readers, you must utilize the social media world and that is an area that I am pulling back from for a few different reasons. I simply want to live in the moment and, for me, this is the best option.

So, thank you again to everyone from around the world (People from 59 different countries have logged onto Ahmeli over the past year! That was so exciting as an author who loves discovering new places around the world!) who read the posts over the past year. Maybe one day I will reappear in the blogging world. I have enjoyed meeting fellow bloggers and reading their insightful and unique posts.

I hope that you have enjoyed the posts throughout this past year. It has been my honor to share experiences and thoughts with all of you! Life can often become very busy, so I am very thankful that you have spent some of you time reading and responding to Ahmeli’s posts.

Wishing you all the very best,

Factory workers. Throughout our country’s history, they were viewed as lower-class people. Uneducated. Worn-down clothing. Leaving work smelling of sweat and filth. Working long hours, repeatedly doing mundane tasks. They were just factory workers. What could they possibly teach others?
