(there were a few blogs I read that I suspected more and more of that and I stopped reading them)
I consider everyone on my blogroll to be special, and more than a few of them I consider friends, whether I would ever meet them in real life or not. In fact I'll be the first to admit that maybe some of us wouldn't be friends if we met in real life. lol
Blogging has provided me with these new friends, as well as support and different perspectives and ways of viewing things.
Its kinda funny how blogging makes us realize that no matter how big the world is its actually very small. I've noticed how a lot of times many of us are having the same struggle or issue (or good things) happening at the same time. Whether its being sick, dealing with work stress, trying to figure out what to do with a problematic but beloved animal.
I just wanted to take this time to thank all of you for being there. For writing the great posts you do, whether they are entertaining, thought provoking, 'please help' or educational. And for reading my little blog and best of all for the comments here and on other blogs (comments that also happen to entertain and educate!)
If you're not on my blogroll don't feel bad there is a very good chance that you are bookmarked, I read a lot of blogs and not all of them are on my blogroll. You see, I have this strange little habit of wanting to read a person's whole blog before I add them to my blogroll (the exception to this is FHOTD, I have NOT read that entire blog!!)
On that note, I was reading comments on my last post and saw that Shirley had left me a little something on her blog. What's funny is that her blog is one of the bookmarked "to catch up on" blogs and I hadn't had time to go there lately!!
So this is from Shirley, and fits right in with what I was rambling on and on about:
To translate the gift from Portuguese to English, it means: "This blog invests and believes the proximity" Meaning that blogging makes us close.
"They all are charmed with the blogs, where in the majority of its aims are to show the marvels and to do friendship; there are persons who are not interested when we give them a prize, and then they help to cut these bows; do we want that they are cut, or that they propagate? Then let's try to give more attention to them! So with this prize we must deliver it to bloggers that in turn must make the same thing and put this text."
Now I don't know how many of you have stuck it out and read this long rambling post, but if you made it to the end you will see that I would like to pass this on to everyone on my blogroll.
(yes that's kind of a copout... but there is no specific number to pass it on to and you all really are special)
