B is for BELIEVE
Greetings one and all to the final B of the current ABC Wednesday! When considering what to write as an introduction this week, it suddenly came upon me to write about the word BELIEVE. The word itself means tohaveconfidenceinthetruth,theexistence,orthereliabilityofsomething,althoughwithoutabsoluteproofthatoneisrightindoingso.
Lately, most of us have been feeling either sadness or antipathy with regard to the continuation of ABC Wednesday. If Roger and I retire from administering it, will it die? Will anyone step up to the plate to be a new leader?
Well, I'm so happy to announce that we do have a new administrator - a very excited and dedicated Melody - who will begin in Round 21. She has two new members who will be her assistants, although I will remain on the team to write a few introductions if they so wish.
Of course, we hope that everyone will continue to participate because this meme is probably one of the longest running (if not, THE longest running) meme on the web right now. I know from my personal experience that I have met several bloggers through ABCW and believe that these people have become true new friends. It has been an amazing ride helping Roger with the weekly visits, doing introductions, my own blog, and, at times, editing the Linky.
It's time for a change, hopefully a change for the better! Not that ABCW has become stale, but with new people at the helm, new ideas will blossom.
So join me in welcoming Melody as the new administrator of ABC Wednesday, which you can preview here, if you like. Also, welcome to the two new assistants Vonnie and Daphne. We trust that they will love steering us into the future as much as Roger and the current team have enjoyed it thus far. I believed in the existence of ABCW and that it would continue if others wanted it. Now we have the absolute proof that continuing it is the right thing to do.
