This morning, as I was going through my early morning routine, I noticed that noone had published today’s Word of the Day Challenge post. I’ve been co-hosting that blog for years now, along with Kristian and Melanie B Cee. And it is not that unusual that one of us forgets or misschedules a post.
And whenever that happens, one of the other two steps up, and takes care of providing the day’s prompt.
But this morning, I suddenly remembered that I had filled in a couple of times without giving it more thought than that, the last two weeks. So I investigated a little, to find out that Melanie hadn’t posted anything since August 5th or 6th.
If you’ve been blogging for a while, you’ve probably come across Melanie, and her blog Sparks From a Combustible Mind. And you also probably know that Melanie is a regular blogger, who publishes several posts a day.
I felt terrible for not noticing before… But, better late than never, right? So I wrote to Melanie, to check up on her. At that time, I was very worried that something terribly bad could have happened.
I was about to have her picture printed on milk cartons.
And thank God, not long after, I got a note back, confirming that Melanie was hospitalized, but doing ok now, and due to be sent home sometime next week.
Pfewwwww! What a relief!
I asked Melanie if I could just let you all know about this (she agreed, no worries). Because the Bloggosphere is like a big family on WordPress, and I know that I can’t be the only one who worried about Melanie’s unexpected absence.
If you too noticed her lack of posting, and missed her presence in your Reader, I invite you to click on the link to her blog (above), and leave her your get-well wishes so she’ll know that we all miss her.
Because we do… Don’t we? (Come on, the woman is AwEsOmE)
