I see that my post from the 17th is not showing up correctly so I thought I'd repost it.
"I find reading blogs interesting because I get a peak into the lives of people I don't know but after following your blogs for months ... a year or more for some ... I feel like I have made lots of new friends all over the world. The art of talking about what is on one's mind to a group of "strangers" is freeing experience.
Of course a lot of you aren't strangers anymore. I walk with you each week, I stitch with you in the evenings, and I try out your recipes and read the books you recommend. Even though we have never met in person I feel we are the best of friends. So I thank each of you that read my blog and keep coming back. Please leave me a comment because that way I know what you are thinking and I can get to know you even better."
