So, as usual, I was “thinking in blog” when I was nursing Owen to lay him down for his nap. I get some pretty good ideas around that time. Then, and at 4 in the morning. Or when I lay down for bed. Cooking, I get some cooking too. Or taking a shower. Or, or, or…..
Where was I? oh yes. In my mind I was thinking out a blog I intend to write, and I will, but I was referring to one of you as my friend. Then something I have heard from non bloggers came into my mind, like an evil bad voice. “Oh, your pretend friends.” PRETEND FRIENDS?! 😯
Here’s the thing, none of you feel “pretend” to me. It isn’t so much the act of posting a blog and reading someones blog that creates these REAL friendships. It’s the comments. And the emails. And the phone calls. And if you’re really lucky, the chance to meet in real life. I never set out to find new friends online when I created my blog, but it just….happened. Out of thin air, it happened.
I love my REAL blog friends, my blog family. I keep up my blog now for much different reasons than what I started it for. I keep it up because of my friends. 😉
