A few days ago my dear blogger friend Anne who does her regular blogging over at Is anyone there? and her photography blogging at The shutterbug ball gave me this award.
Anne lives over in Scotland and travels frequently. I can attest to the fact that her blog is filled with lovely pictures and wonderful stories from her travels. Give her some blog love will ya?
I thought I'd put my own spin on this..
I'd like to tell you the reasons why I continue to blog and give this award to the people I get my inspiration from on a daily basis....my blog friends.
I'm not the most prolific writer but I enjoy the act of writing as a creative outlet. What blogging does for me is it has opened up a whole world of relationships that I would never have had and taken me places I could never have hoped to visit in my life time. I've heard the skeptics who question how I could call a person friend if we've never met.
Admittedly I know some of you better than others but I can say the same of some of my in real life friends. I know in my heart I can call you friend regardless. Like most friendships we take on differing roles and just like in real life relationships how we fit together all depends on what our common interests are and how much we like each other; not whether we've ever met face to face.
This is how I feel about my relationship with the people who read and comment on this blog and the bloggers who have blogs that I read and comment on.....
Qualities like witty, smart, funny, interesting and passionate come to mind when I think of you. When I visit your blogs and read what you've written I'm always mindful of the fact that every time you hit publish you are giving of yourself; there's a piece of you in everything you write. And when I look at your photographs I always get the sense that not only am I getting a look at who and what you love but I'm also getting glimpse into your heart and soul.
