Goodness, Gracious ... I'm Amazed...!
I thought I would log on tonight and do a quick little post after my brief hiatus, and then I read all your wonderful comments, and I really am amazed...! You have no idea how much I appreciate your visits, and your fabulously witty, intelligent comments. What a special bunch of people you are. Goodness, I really am quite overwhelmed. Thank you...!
There ... I just broke one of my own rules, and used two exclamation marks in one paragraph.
On a slightly different -- but similar -- note, our friend Eddie Bluelights at Clouds and Silvery Linings is honoring me with The Sunday Roast this weekend, and you can read the post here. Once again, I am quite amazed. "How did that happen?" you ask. Well, I'm not quite sure, but it sure is fun. And I'm in good company, judging from the past blogs who have been featured on the Sunday Roast. Which is a perfect segue into what I would really like to say, which is that I don't believe there are any blogs that should be singled out for any blog post awards. They're just silly. Wherever you get groups of people together, you get those who find it necesary to establish a hierarchy. It's human nature, but it ultimately takes the fun out of it for 95% of the other people involved.
All of you have fabulous blogs, and occasionally I stumble upon one that is so good it knocks my socks off. Sometimes for new bloggers, breaking into the blogging world can make folks feel like that kid in grade eight who's new in school and isn't sure if anyone is going to like them. We've all been there. Just remember, it's supposed to be fun so try not to take it too seriously.
I now return you to your regularly scheduled program...
