Why I Love Blogging

Here's a little story about why I love blogging.

When I first started blogging, I felt like I was talking to a wall. Remember that feeling? Then slowly people start peeking in. I joined the Blogging group in Rav and did the comment train a few times, which brought me over to the Tink-n-Frog blog. It just so happened that she was asking for some advice on her Etsy shop banner. Not being one to shy away from offering advice, I commented. Probably a little more critically than I would have if we were face to face, seeing as I didn't even know this person. Well, the comments turned out ok, because besides being supportive in all my blog ramblings, we have spent a few nights laughing with each other over in Ravelry, too. We have become bbf's. No, not best boyfriends. (Yes, I looked it up and that seems to be the going meaning these days.) Ok, maybe we're bbb's. Best Blogging Buddies. We're on completely opposite sides of the country but yet it feels like she is next door sometimes. She never fails to make me laugh or cry, and I can only hope to meet her in person someday. Anyway...

A few weeks ago, I bought some of Tink's Infi-knity bags because I'm planning a contest/blog giveaway in a little while here (hint, hint!). So instead of sending me the beautiful bags I wanted, she sent me the beautiful bags AND a ton of goodies to go along with it! I felt like it was my birthday all over again. See the little knitted acorn cutie? I got a kick out of this. It goes along with the acorn award! Oh, and if I turn into a sock addict we will all know who is responsible.

You make me blush. And I'm glad we got the whole bbf's and bbb figured out. I didn't really want to be your best boyfriend. Your hubby might get jealous. And I think my bust line would ruin the whole "boy"friend concept. I'm sooooo glad you liked your treats. You deserve them!
