blogs are for hugging


I got this. I think the first one to officially bestow it upon me was Suebob. Then, in no particular order, I was mentioned by Count Mockula, mar, and Suzanne. At the same time, one or more of these people mentioned other blog friends of mine like Ms. Little Pea, Alex Elliot, Average Jane, and mdog.

I'm supposed to now give this prestigious award to 10 of my faves. Well, I've just mentioned 8. (As I said to mar, part of the problem with running in the same blog circle is that there is plenty of repetition in things like this.)

So, 2 more people:

Arlene - She is wonderful, and I'm not just saying that because she's been known to mail me 2 pounds of sweet tart candy hearts. She writes about a whole range of things, most of which I've never gone through on my own. AND she takes super awesome photos.

Amy Jo - She makes me laugh and laugh. And she has the cutest babies in the whole wide world, which I've been saying for years. She also takes photos. Hmm, maybe this is a trend?

There you have it. There are plenty more blogs that I read and enjoy, so check out my blogroll to the left over there. Believe it or not, I do keep it pretty updated. (If you're reading this and don't see your blog listed, btw, it's not because I hate you. It's because I am sometimes lazy and forgetful. ALSO, if I didn't mention you as have had mentioning me, hit me on the head with a frying pan.)

All of these people I've listed are ones that I've either met in person or feel like I have. We're totally blog buddies. I love youse guys! *sob*

And I realize now that my prophecy came true: I did not list flutter simply because she is not one of the 1st blogs on my alphabetical list.

Everyone go read flutter. And not just because she made me a purdy purdy rug. She is a beautiful writer, and so often I read her and am just knocked totally off my feet and I can't even comment.

ps - Can we decide on a universal term meaning blog buddies? I know mar uses "bliends" but that makes me feel like I've just mistyped binds or blends. So let's come up with something, and then force it into the internets' lexicon. Ideas?


mar said...

actually, i got 'bliends' from a consensus of comments on a suebob post. i didn't care for it at first, but it's growing on me.
i am quite wildly fond of a jonniker commenter's 'intermet' *snicker*

super des said...

ooh, I like intermet. "I intemet mar a coupla years ago."

arlenestarr said...

Thank you Des, and you take some pretty awesome photos too.

super des said...

thanks Arlene!

flutter said...

Tink uses "homebloys" which I love. Hey run over to my place today and check out yer rug :)

Amy Jo said...

Aw shucks des! You're a peach! Thank you!

super des said...

Homebloys. That's a good one.

And now for a quick update to this blog...

It's like the mutual admiration society. Hug.

mdog said...

intermet. i love it.

Suzanne said...

Intermet is pretty awesome. And it is very nice being part of a group of friends. Where would I be without friends? Lonely and watching bad TV.

super des said...

That's exactly where I am, suze... well was, before doing that whole "job" thing. But the bad tv was there.
