So, I’ve been blogging for over two years now but it’s only been about a year that I really started getting involved in this community of woman bloggers (and a few guys too!) that continues to propagate itself (I ‘m constantly amazed at the new blogs I find EVERY. DAY.)
The other day when I told one of the ladies in my neighborhood Mom’s group that I occasionally win “free” stuff through blogs and give away things on my site as well, she was floored. And I when I added that several women that I now consider good friends are people I’ve never met in real life, she looked at me kinda funny. She does have a blog for pics of her daughter but had no idea it was as involved (and wonderful!) as it is.
That was me just a little over a year ago.
All this to say that in the last couple of weeks the blogosphere has been very kind to me. I have a won a couple of things, had a talented bloggy friend make a new “button” for my blog AND met another blog/twitter friend IN REAL LIFE.
So first I just want to say “thanks” to Wendy for the Mom’s Plan it! calendar (can’t wait to get organized!) and to the ladies at The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans for the handy fitness caddy, which is PERFECT for my trips to the gym!
Also, Mel at Adventures of the Reluctant Housewife was kind of enough to make the new blog button for me up there at the top of my left sidebar all because she’s that generous and enjoys doing such things! I love it, don’t you? Please feel free to add it to your blog! ; )
AND! Last Saturday I had the pleasure to meet Haley from @ Love, Life, Family and Thensome. She drove all the way up from southern Texas with her darling boy and joined me for some scrapbooking and introduced me to some of the cutest paper ever! Here we are with our little blondies!
By the way, I am averaging meeting a new blog friend once per month since I met Lisa last month. And next month I will meet a BUNCH at our area bloggy meet up (I don’t seem excited about that, do I?). And then perhaps BlogHer (?). Oh how I hope I get to go!
So… this is just what the blogosphere has done for me lately. And it’s ALL good… wouldn’t you agree?
