I have a few blog favorites and I have made a few blog friends.
I visit lots and lots and lots of blogs but only comment at a few. I get intimidated if there are more than 7 or 8 comments and figure that blogger doesn't need any new friends. I read one blog that regularly gets 400, 500 and even once more than 3000 comments. I would never even think of commenting there.
In the past couple of weeks I found some blogs that for some reason I used to read and then lost touch with. Two of them have experienced divorces, and two have had babies. It was quite shocking, really.
I love the crafty blogs, but again, don't comment there much. They all seem to be writing books, which makes them AW-THURS, and thus, out of my league. Not that I'm star struck or anything, I just figure they already have enough on their plate.
There are a few of you, if I were traveling through your town, I would stop to see. And for a couple of you, it wouldn't feel weird.
I work with a couple of bloggers and that is fun! It lets me see a different side of the people I work with. But it was VERY hard to share with them that I, too, had a blog.
I haven't shared with too many of my real life friends this little hobby. I feel extremely vulnerable about it and I don't know why. It's not like I'm spilling my guts out here. I think probably because it is not an accurate representation of who I am. Well, it is and it isn't. I haven't been as adept as some of you out there who have great blog voices.
I have a friend who should definitely be a blogger. If you are reading this LD, this means you! Everybody would fall in love with you, even if you are de-caffeinated.
Thank you, all my bloggy friends, for sharing your life with me, a stranger. You have added to my life and made me think and laugh and pray for you. You make me want to be a better blogger so I have something to give back. I hope you find this little fluffly bloggy something to look forward to as much as I look forward to yours.
Go forth and blog!
