Validation Is an Empowering Feeling

Validation comes in all sorts of ways: increasing readership numbers, “friends” who friend but do not know you, and being invited to make a media appearance. The ultimate validation is from a stranger who has no stake in a person’s popularity or wealth.

Imagine my surprise when I drove around the internet and parked at an online site because I was attracted by the heading, “Blogs to Explore,” and my newly birthed blog, (https://literarynomad11.blogspot.com) made the list! I was elated beyond words. Wow!

I could go on and on about examples of validation, but right now, I find myself speechless. Thank you to the stranger who recognized something special in my blog! Thank you!
