Thank ya very much

I was speaking to someone the other day about how WRONG I felt it was to adore such lovely blog/email comments that I receive.  I said it was so WRONG to perhaps "depend? count on?" the validation of feelings that I put out there for the world to see.  That maybe I should get a nasty comment once in awhile to put me in my place.

Then she said, "How COOL is it that blogs have opened up that kind of communication? You don't have time to sit and chat and go out with other women because of your work why would you think receiving kindness from women via the internet would be wrong?"

I thought about what she said.

Then I thought it would be so WRONG of me to be ungrateful.

So, thanks.  So so much.

PS. Do you ever apply for so many give-aways that you forget that you did them?  I am just SURE that I have won something on a random blog, but because I forgot which blog it was I bet they gave it to someone else. Shouldn't you always email the winner to make sure?  Note to self, me and let's do lunch.

Very true! and no mean comments here... just "way to go" validation! I love the way you express your thoughts!

YEP...I also appreciate the validation I get from blogging...and the friendships formed through comments. :)

We all feel that way. And is it a bummer that we cannot just walk up to the corner grocery and stop and sit a spell on the neighbor gal's porch on our way. But reality is what it is. This is our "stop and sit a spell"...carry on!

Jackie said...

I feel the same way, so thank YOU!

Right on! I was going to say "I think" but at this point I must say that "I Know" that the friendships we make through blogs and the communication we have with other women through our blogs is a blessing!

Well now I gotta give ya a big fat sweet comment! :)
I'm totally the same way. I loooove comments. Who doesn't love that little boost of "you're so stinkin creative" or "you're adorableness leave me in awe" or how about "your husband looks like a soap star"... ha ha, right Jackie?

Anyway, I also do giveaways a ton. I'm a giveaway junkie. Or maybe just a free stuff junkie. Yep. I like free stuff.

Jackie said...

Yeah. I love being married to a soap star. And I love comments. And I love bloggers!

Yeah. I love being married to a soap star. And I love comments. And I love bloggers!

I've won a few things on blogs and most often, I think every time, I don't receive my prize. But they do email me so I know I won. And they do get my address, so they could send it if they wanted to. But maybe they just like to keep the prize for themselves?
