Wendy of Maine has truly set an example for eating local, a very popular movement throughout the blogosphere. Between growing fruit and vegetables, keeping chickens, and buying locally grown foods, she and her family have experienced a wonderful feast this summer, and she has been kind enough to share menus and recipes. I look forward to reading her blog as the seasons and menus change.
Kirstie has been my bosom buddy for more years than I care to share. She and I share many tales in person, but we share different tales on our blogs. It's great to have something new to say, even after we've devoured each other's words. There's rarely a gap in our conversations, a wonderful benefit of a true friend.I'm very excited that my dear friend and neighbor Marjorie (who prefers to remain unlinked) has started a blog as a way to share family pictures and anecdotes with friends and family that live too far away to see and hear about her beautiful family up close and personal. She is an amazing photographer and scrapbooker, and I'm sure her blog will be wonderful.
When I sit down at the computer to post a blog, I sometimes forget that I am sharing pieces of myself with friends, family and strangers. I am at times surprised when having a conversation with someone that they mention something from my blog. Oh yeah, I wrote about that, and you read it - weird. I love experiencing the impact of the written word, and the dimension it adds to my life. Blog on my friends. You all rock.
