Thank you VOF 2010


Now, the last assignment is done.
It took me ages to find the right words and bring them on paper.
My mind, feeling and emotions were turning around, rushing through my brain.
They never stop.
An endless flow of emotions and ideas
Projects and dreams
but also a feeling of sadness:
Now our weekly assignment are over
no comments
no posts:-(
I will miss them
I will miss all the encouraging voices from all over the world
I will miss every listener
I will miss every friend
I will miss every comment and encouragement
I will miss you all!

Every time I saw the allert my heart jumped up, filled with curiosity, joy and wonder.
I felt like a little child at X-mas
All of you made me feel special


Special thanks to JENSINE, who put into existance and life the site and so gave me and other women the chance to meet and share our ideas, thoughts and dreams and meet and befriend with each other. So many women from different corners of the world, each one sharing her story and vision with me. Thank you, Jensine to make this happen!

Special thanks to RACHAEL, who gave me valuable comments and advice and who provided us with the necessary information and reminded us on the deadline of our assignments. You did a great job. Thank you for the patience and professional advice and comment.

Special thanks to SCO'TT who cared about the technical part of the VOF 2010. Your advice were precious to me because before that moment I did not even know Web 2.0 and html existed. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

Special Thanks to JADE FRANK for her support and encouragement and for the constant effort to make the site better and accessible to everyone. Thank you for the consideration and for the exchange.

Special thanks to THE WHOLE TEAM working behind, whom I never got the chance of meeting or interacting with. You do great job. Keep on!

Special thanks to ALL MY FRIENDS on WORLDPULSE! I am greatful and blessed that I met you. You are simply wonderful. Thank you for your friendship

Special thanks to ALL LISTENERS! Fantatastic job! I really admire your perseverance and professionality when reading our assignments. Thank you for your comments, advices and encouragement. You are really wonderful.

Special thanks to ALL COMMENTERS! Thanks for the interest and patience shown.

Without you this would not have been possible! You made my dream come true after 19 years; being a journalist!
I would like to hug each one of you! I am so happy for this experience!

Eliana, Why do you say you

Why do you say you will miss the posts, comments and US??? We are all still here, even if we are not picked to continue with the program. I have really enjoyed knowing you online and writing to you. Just like you, I am always eager to see a message from World Pulse in my inbox. It means someone has read my article, and I love to get feedback. It's been so good for everyone I think. Our writing continues, as does our friendship.

Well, I really felt sad after

Well, I really felt sad after I sent in my last assignment. It has been a wonderful journey and experience and I am glad I had the chance to make it and to get to know so many different women.
Of course our writing will continue and our friendship, too. We met and wrote to each other even before this journey started and there is no reason why it should end.
So keep in touch.
Thank you for encouragement and support and all the comments
Peace to you

This is a beautiful thank you note! I know how you feel, this is not really a goodbye but it is an ending to our intense month, our introduction. Every comment is like a christmas present! Now that we have joined world pulse, we will have more letters from the heart to read and more presents! I have enjoyed your friendship Eliana and have been so grateful for your support.
