I find it amazing that I sit day in and day out writing on my computer doing this thing called blogging.
Many in my life don’t exactly get what it is that I do here. They know I write, but the intricacy that goes into blogging, not many know this unless you too are a blogger.
This is where Facebook and support groups come into play to help ease the blogger’s needs, doubts or just to be able to relate to others in a similar boat as yourself.
I have been blessed and shared on here many times over just how blessed by all the wonderful amazing brilliant people I have had the pleasure of getting to know through blogging and becoming friends with.
A side note, I am a huge Beatle fan and this week more then ever with them celebrating the 50th anniversary of the performance on the Ed Sullivan Show (yes I watched the CBS special on Sunday night), I have been listening to their music non-stop. So, I think it is fitting that as I was writing this post I kept coming back to titling this “With a Little Help From My Friends”.
But back to the issue at hand, most of these bloggers/writer, I have never laid eyes on in a real life setting. Yet, it is amazing to me how I have friends (and I say friends, because I do very much consider my blogging/writing friends, just that — friends) all over the globe.
And then again every once in awhile, I find bloggers practically in my own backyard.
One such blogger is Kathy from My dishwasher’s possessed, who lives literally about 20 minutes away from me.
Kathy and I got to know each other through a shared and mutual Facebook group, which I must admit I consider like a second home to me. I may not always comment on every post, but I definitely am a lurker and add to the conversation when I can and my time permits.
But Kathy has always been so kind to me and our friendship has developed over the course of the time I have gotten to know her through this group.
I admit I was truly honored and humbled, when Kathy contacted me to help her transfer her blog from Blogger to WordPress, as well entrusted me with the new design for her new self-hosted blog.
Even more honored was I, when Kathy told me she wanted to introduce her blog for the first post with an interview of me.
So, please head over to Kathy’s new digs here now and read the interview that she crafted for her inaugural post with me.
And to Kathy, you better believe when the Polar Vortex, as well as the snow-maggedeon leaves our neck of the woods, we are going to have to meet in person after all we have shared so far, I think it only fitting that we get to meet.
