A tribute to three true friends I've made through blogging
Two weeks ago I posted about a blogging award that had been given to me, and in the comments that very day, I got another one. Tina of Life in the slow lane at Squirrel Head Manor sent me the above award with this definition:
These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more..."
I'm very flattered that Tina, whom I've never really had much contact with, has been quietly following my blog and chose me as part of this category.
But, as usual, to pass the award on I'm changing the rules a bit. No, make that a lot. I'm going to recognize the three bloggers that I feel I have become true friends with, in every sense of the word.
I don't want to be exclusive -- there are plenty of you out there who are best blogging buddies, that I would love to meet one day, and that I've known for quite a while now. You have all become part of my life.
But there are three special gals who end up being the object of phrases that roll off my tongue in everyday conversation: "I have a friend who..." "One of my girlfriends..." and "Yeah, I was talking to a friend about that the other day..."
These are three great bloggers who also grace my email box, my Facebook page, and my Twitter page -- okay, except for one on the Twitter page, but maybe I'll convince her.
I guess, even though it sounds a little corny, I'm writing this to thank them for being my friends.
