Today is I am participating in the Oh, How I miss you blogfest.... Alex J. Cavanaugh hosts with Andrew Leon, and Mathew MacNish to show appreciation for our blogger buddies.
The bloggers we really miss…
and the ones we would really miss!
"Do you have a couple blogger buddies who aren’t posting as often? Those who’ve pulled back and seem absent from the blogging world? Do you have blogger buddies you are grateful they are still around and would miss if they vanished? Now is your chance to show your appreciation and spotlight them!
On November 16, list one to three bloggers you really miss and one to three bloggers you would miss if they stopped blogging. Then go leave a comment on those blogs.
Our blogger friends are special – time to let them know!"
This is an INCREDIBLY difficult choice. Over the past few years I have grown so fond of MANY of my blogger friends and I consider all of them special. Now for the ones I miss. That is a bit easier.
First is Margo Benson... What a sweetheart. I miss you lovely posts for Devon England and her graciousness and charm is forever missed by me.
Next... Giggles and Guns, Mary Vaughn... I terribly miss Mary. She closed her blog over four months ago. Whenever I needed a good LAUGH, Mary was always there. She is also very special to me a more personal level.
Finally. Jodi Henry from Turning the Page... Jodi and I started blogging around the same time several years ago. We were very close for the first year, and then she became busy with her writing and family. But I will always be grateful to Jodi for the help she had given me (grammerwise... LOL) in my fledgling writing.
Now for the hard part. You guys want me to pick THREE? Of the DOZENS of friends I adore? You guys are really pushing it now... But since you are twisting my arm ...
First... one of our hosts. Alex. He has given so much of his time and love to our community, I don't know what we would do without his presence. I shudder to think about it.
Next ... It would have to be my cyber SIS, Siv Ottem form Been There, Done That ... Siv is very special to me... We connect on a whole other level and I would be devastated if she left the blogosphere.
Now I have just decided I CANNOT choose only three. So GET OVER IT!
Roland Yeomans.... An amazing writer and good friend. His blog "called to me" when I first started blogging. Roland's heart and soul is clearly visible in EVERYTHING her writes and expresses on his blog. I have learned a great deal from him.
Morgan Shamy... A wonderful new friend. Morgan is the epitome of kindness, positivity, enthusiasm, effervescence, and charm. Over the past few weeks she has been just the most awesome support for my writing and I am thrilled to have her in my life!
Denise Covey of L'AUSSIE .... An amazing blogger, friend, and inspiration. Denise has given us so much. Through her travels, her insights and passion for writing are clearly evident. Her posts are fun, zesty, and passionate.
Donna Hole. Donna is an amazing blogger and friend. OF all of the bloggers I know, Donna has critiqued more stories than any of us. She is ALWAYS willing to help a fellow writer and she is one of THE MOST SELFLESS people I know.
Ali Cross... and her Ninja army. Ali, too has helped so many pull they work together through her fun and inspiring Ninja themed workshops.
Moody, of Mood Writing. Talk about a never-ending fountain of writing information. Mood's posts make us think... They give us ways to fine tune our writing and make it sparkle... Thanks Mood.
The Golden Eagle.... What a sweetheart. Golden gives so much of herself in her posts and ALWAYS drops by with the nicest comments.
Okay, I can go ON and ON and ON and ON... Just look at my sidebar! For anyone I haven't mentioned, please know I love you all and I am forced to stop because if I don't this will be THE LONGEST post in the blogoshere. But be assured, even if I don't get to you as often as I would like, you guys are always in my heart!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone and make sure to stop by the other participants and especially the bloggers you love... Let them know how you feel! I know I will!
And a special thanks to all of you for the wonderful comments about my new writing space. If you didn't get a chance to see it, just scroll down ... I'd love to know what you think!
