Online Friends

If you're a blogger like me (and if you're not how did you get here?) then you know some of the best friends you'll ever make are people you'll most likely never meet.

I've been blogging since around 2006 and I've been fortunate to "meet" so many people who have touched and impacted my life. Whether it be from a simple act of kindness, a shoulder or a laugh when one was needed, or by providing constant reminders that I am not as stupid, boring or crazy as I think I am.

Sadly, due to varying circumstances, I've lost touch with some of these people. In this respect, the blogging world is no different than the "real" world.

This post is prompted by, but not limited to, Hootin' Anni's recent help with my Heads Or Tails blog. Her last HoT post mentioned new coding she was learning and I'd left a comment saying I needed to learn how to make a code so people could "steal" the HoT blogroll. She made not one, but two, for me. (The first one was too complicated for me to understand.) She didn't have to do this. But she did.

This song is for her, Misty, Autumn, Shannon, Tammy, and so many others..
