The blogosphere and new friends in life

myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics

I want to say that I've become very attached to so many of my e~friends that I've met on the blogosphere. I love that we stay in touch via e~mail along w/ "commenting" back and forth!
I've even talked on the phone w/ the Queen, Gina, Slackermommy and JennyHaHa!!
Hee hee, I wish we could all get together for a picnic or something.

There are such wonderful and caring people out there. I am so amazed that people you've never even met in person, are still so warm and loving. It's heartwarming.

Sidebar: I do wish everyone listed their e~mail in their profile, so when they leave a comment, I could e~mail them directly. They can even check a little box in their profile "to show e~mail" then I could reply directly to them from the e~mail when they post. Do you you know what I'm saying? I think I just made that all confusing.

I decided that I would just come out and say how I feel about my e~friends .... partly because
I was over at Gunfighter's and Dorky Dad's place tonight ... they both wrote a post on this blogosphere subject ..... I was excited to see that they even mentioned my little ole blog. They wrote what I've been thinking all along. (If I knew how to link their blog to their names, I would... but I don't know how!) I figured that I would come out and let ya'll know how much I appreciate you.

Every day, I look forward to jumping on my computer to read comments on my blog and then run around to others blogs and see what's up!! I actually feel bad when I don't have time to get to each and every blog for a visit! I worry that I'm being a bad e~friend. I am very behind right now, BTW .... sorry! :-/ I never want to be rude and not visit someone that has come to my blog or Matthew's blog. I just get so busy with this life of mine. I even miss it when I'm camping in Beaver. I drive the hubby batty, I am so addicted to this bloggin.

I also want to say that if I have somehow missed you and your blog isn't listed on my blogroll ... please e~mail me and let me know so that I can add you to the list!!! I don't mean to leave anyone off.

It's so funny, not one of my "real life" friends blog (well, that's a lie, I do have one that has come to my blog, once... but my own family doesn't come to my blog.) ... we just talk on the phone or e~mail each other.

This is a whole new, fun world!! It's a nice break from the "real world."

So, thanks everyone ... for being so fun, thought provoking, caring and wonderful .... and especially supportive!!

And.... I love that you all care about my little boy.... it certainly helps me.

You're so cute. What's not to love about you.

To link: in your 'compose section' as you post...
1. highlight the word you want to link
2. click the little 'chain link' button on the top of your box
3. then a dialogue box will come up where you can
4. enter the address you want to link
4. hit okay and you are linked.

Let me know if it works.

I couldn't agree more. I'm in the same boat. No real life friends who blog...though my family does read mine--which can be a bummer some times.

I'm soooooo glad you mentioned your family not reading your blog!!
I thought I must be 'the lone ranger' on this one!

My feelings have been so hurt because my chilren and grown grandchildren seem to have no interest whatsoever in what I have to say. One daughter says she does read it but never makes a comment or even mentions in converstion about what I post.

WOW! Talk about how to make a SenCit feel dull and uninformed!!

But when I think about it, the topic of my thoughts and concerns aren't targeted toward the younger generations. One day, they'll understand....'what goes around comes around'!

You're such a sweetheart! I know how you feel though!

Queen of the Mayhem said...

We love you because you are awesome! Most of my real-life friends do not read my blog....and the few that do DON'T comment! Of course, if you are not an simply cannot grasp the concept of the crack that is blog comments. I am not even ashamed of how much I like them! ( Well, maybe a little!)

Slackermommy said...

I'm also grateful for the blogging friends I've made (like you). I've been out of the loop for several days and it feels "weird".

RhythmUnbroken said...

I feel special now ^_^

I was thinking of doing a post similar to this, so look for it soon!

yerdoingitwrong said...

You are such a sweetheart!! Right back atcha babe!

I have a handful of real life blogger pals, but my friends that aren't bloggers never comment.

yerdoingitwrong said... is a fabulous break from the real world!! It's my virtual therapy. =)

Dorky Dad said...

I don't have any in-person friends who blog. Some of them actually read my blog from time to time. And my Mom reads it. But that's it. For the most part, it's all these people I've met in the blogosphere. And they're all pretty cool people.

Nancy said...

Awww, what a nice post. I didn't meet you on the blogosphere but we did meet via email when someone put us in contact with each other because Matthew and Jessica have the same heart defects. By the way, who was it that hooked us up? I don't even remember now.... I'm just glad they did. :-) And haven't we talked on the phone? Way back when we first met? I'm not sure... but I'm starting to feel jealous... :*(

My family doesn't read my blogs. My mom does on rare occasions but that's about it. My 3-dimensional friends (as Jennyhaha puts it) don't read my blogs either.

Oh well, I'm addicted to blogging, reading blogs, commenting on blogs and searching for new blogs to read. I might as well have something FUN to do while I'm stuck at home with an ill child, right?

Terri said...

Dorky Dad put it into the words I've been looking for!

"IN PERSON" friends ...
... because you are all real live and real life too!

I almost told my girlfriends my blog address, but none of them use computers much-- and none read blogs anyway, not even their kid's MYSpace pages, so I didn't bother. I like the bloggers stopping by instead of people I see almost daily anyway. fresh new voices from all over the globe.

I did post my e mail at first--I got some creepy pervy e mails so stopped posting it.

You echo my sentiments exactly :-)

Right back at you!
