Bloggers, I Appreciate You!

This is an Eclectic Spaghetti Taraday that I couldn't let pass me by. If it is time to appreciate bloggers and blogging, then count me in!

I tentatively started blogging about six years ago. There were at least three personal blogs that came and went. I also involved myself with...lets see....five group blogs. I think those ones are actually all still up, but inactive for the most part. I have had this blog for about 3.5 years now. For the first year, at least, I had virtually no contact with the outside world. People may have stumbled in now and then, but I wasn't part of a community, so to speak. I do know that Tara was the first one to start regularly commenting and it was through her blog that I connected with several of the bloggers whom I read and comment on, while they read and comment here! A community. I love reading people's comments...getting that feedback makes blogging feel productive and there is the whole venting aspect as well. If you look at my blogroll, you will see not just fellow bloggers, but in my mind at least, friends! People whom I respect, admire, and appreciate every day.


So, cheers! Here's to you, B-B-B-Bloggers! I ♥ you and your blogs and your comments on my blog.

Sincerely,

laura b.

Wow, those drinks are so pretty. I take a couple ... and any others you have left.

Happy Blogging Appreciation!

Those ARE pretty drinks! I definitely consider all of my fellow bloggers as friends! If I'm talking about something one of you had wrote on your blogs to a family member, I don't say, "a blogger", I say "a friend of mine.." It feels natural to call you all my friends, because you are.

I could use one of those drinks to celebrate Blogger appreciation Month.. Happy Blogging...

Cricket: Please take what you like :-) Just my little way of saying thank you.

Tara: Thank you for saying that! I feel exactly the same. Aw!

NoRegrets: I wear my heart on my sleeve. And my blog.

Woo-hoo. I love these virtual parties. All the drinks with none of the hangover. I'm so glad that I found your blog.

laura b. said...

Churlita: Yes, things are pretty nice without consequences :-) I'm really glad you did too.

oooh did you make all of those lovely drinks yourself? Here, let me help you guzzle them down!
I love your blog and you my dear are a super blogging friend! I can't remember how I found you but I do remember your post was about Dancing with the Stars... I think. Ah, this would be a good time to tell you of the love I have for Brian... one of the pro dancers from Dancing with the Stars who, at the moment, well until Saturday was dancing on our version, Strictly Come Dancing!

Drink up! It is an all you can drink event here :-)
I will never forget how I ruined at least two finales for you, but you didn't foresake me. Yay!
I don't think Brian Fortuna is on Dancing with the Stars this season...maybe just on the tour? He looks cutie cute, though. My personal favorite is Maksim the beautiful Russian...drool....
See how pretty?
