I think it's weird.....

how you feel like you become friends with other bloggers. I guess because I never expected it. I've never been one to go on the internet and go to chat rooms or boards....just didn't care to talk to strangers.

But then I started my blog.....and I met other bloggers, moms, like me, mostly younger but still, strangers that I now actually consider my friends. And I guess I wasn't prepared because what happened was this.......their lives and what they post actually affect me.

One that I read daily has struggled to become pregnant, became pregnant and then mis-carried. I shed a tear when I read it.

One who was bidding on antique napkins on eBay....won the bid and man, it just made me smile.

One who had a baby......of course didn't blog for a week and then once back online, just made me happy to see her post again.

One who loves the Cowboys like me......and has a daughter with my last name!

Two who have quit smoking like going through menopause like many who like to scrapbook.....even more who like to decorate. One I'm learning photo tips from and one who lives on a farm and teaches us all about it! And the ranch......can't forget Pioneer Woman!

One who is battling cancer and one who is struggling with a sick child. These are people I don't know but people who I hold in my prayers every night.

I truly believe that through blogging you do become friends. I really believe that if I was down in Alabama, Cheryl would meet me for lunch!!

So I guess I'm just saying it kind of took me by surprise....I'm glad I started my blog and if I read your's, just know, I think you're my friend, whether you know it or not! And I have not updated my blogroll in so long.......and if I did, it would take up a lot of space!

I know exactly what you mean!!! I guess when you read someone's "diary" every day, you feel like you know them better than some of the people around you. People are more raw, more open online than they are in real life. You can't help but become attached to those you read.

I consider some of my closest friends to be bloggers I read or who read me. I don't think anyone who isn't part of bloggy land could really understand that!

I REALLY loved this blog when I read it a few days ago, but I just could post a comment (grrr!). It is such a sweet post! I love how you condensed the way I feel about the people I've met on good ol' blogs... Couldn't have said it better myself!
