With A Little Help From My Friends
When I started blogging in 2007, it never occurred to me that I would a. keep at it for so long, and b. develop great friendships with people I’ve never met. My now semi-defunct life blog helped me find a group of friends who have stayed true even when I moved on to the greener pastures of Book, Line, and Sinker.
My post office box has witnessed the generosity of my blogging friends. Not only do my blog buddies support me with comments and emails, but they also bake, make, and buy things for me. Just the other day I swung by my post box on a whim, hoping to receive a book I’m dying to review. I did have a package, but not the one I was anticipating. Instead, the envelope bore the return label of my dear blogging buddy Dishy.
Dishy read about my recent rediscovery of Sweet Valley High and wanted to help feed my addiction with these two installments and a homemade CD of 80s music to help me relive the glory days of parachute pants.
So, thanks to my blogging friends for the comments, support, goodies, and love! It’s been an unexpected but welcome treat to see that blogging really does create communities and friendships.
I know that my story isn’t unique. How has blogging impacted you on a personal level? Have you been on the receiving (or giving) end of kindness or generosity? Have you made friends with bloggers–maybe met them for lunch or dinner? Tell me all about it.
