Blogging Buddies

I am so thrilled that I started blogging. I have made some really wonderful friends through blogging. I have the above pic on my blog page with my 5 blogging buds......Andi, Cecile, Jilly, Missy and Trina. I loved the picture when I saw it and wanted to make it special, so I named all the women after my buds. Of course, not to offend the men folk I blog with and about.....I am in search of an equally cool pic for the men. Missy had been after me for awhile to blog and I kept putting it off. I wish I had done it sooner. I really treasure the friends I've made blogging. And I just recently found out that my oldest sister has been reading it and for some reason hasn't even commented. My younger sis reads it too, but she'd rather email. I have found out so many new things blogging and found out I'm not the only one that feels certain ways about certain things. Thank you guys so much for being part of my "Blogging Nation" (as my husband likes to call it). And for those of you who read it, but don't comment.....I say "come one down" and become the newest member. You can NEVER have too many friends.

You summed up the thrill and satisfaction from blogging very nicely. I too have relatives that say they read my blog, but don't leave comments ---very frustrating. (makes me feel so "used"---) Not exactly sure we are a "nation" usually we refer to all those blogging as "The Bloggosphere"----in anycase its fun, its educational and warning---its addictive.

to expand your reading audience , you need to "expose yourself", add a few fun "buttons" to your right hand column---you might want to start with "Blogger Talk", just click the button on my page and go from there-----

I am so glad that you and I decided to start blogging or i would never have met you!!
I have to thank my friend Missy for getting me started in the blogging world:))
Have a great week:))

Your dear SIL Missy is responsible for me becoming part of the blogging nation as well! I used to read her blog as a way to keep up with what was going on in her life and it was a long time before I left a comment. So don't give up on your sisters. Who knows...they may have blogs of their own one day.

As I've mentioned the picture and feel honored to be a part of it!

I love, love, love that picture!


I have a lot of relatives that read my blog..but don't comment.

I am so glad you decided to start blogging too! I started blogging when I was pregnant with Mattie..some friends of mine at our LSS (that is now closed) got me started. I took weekly tummy shots. This also allowed my family near and far to be a part of the process:)

Your bloggy buddy.

Thanks for adding me to your blogging buddy list. It is a lot of fun and it's nice to come home to a nice comment or a friendly hello. Cecile kept after me until I just did it and I have really enjoyed it. I'm gonna try to be a better blogger.
