Sticking my head out of the foxhole to say THANK YOU to 10,000 visitors who’ve stopped by. This calls for a celebration.
Hey! Look what landed in the inbox!
Sheri de Grom serendipitously sent a virtual cupcake and a “Super Sweet Blogging Award” the same day as my Mil0,000estone. I am honored. Sheri shares my interest in, OK, everything. Bravo generalists. Not everyone appreciates a blog that jumps around from bag bans to blueberries to Brooksley Born. Sheri’s rich background as a Fed/JAG, book buyer and advocate for retirees gives her plenty of material for insightful posts on politics, books and whatever strikes her. Thank you Sheri.
I have to admit my first thought about “super sweet” was an image of a maiden aunt in a sensible suit and lavender perfume,
…which isn’t bad of course, but well… then remembered Susie Lindau’s post about words that don’t mean what they used to. Ah yes! “Sweet” according to the Urban Dictionary means not just sugary, but also good in a cool kind of way. Swe-e-e-t.
Speaking of Susie, TODAY, JAN. 4, is the day to stop by her blog for a “Use Me and Abuse Me” party where she opens her virtual doors to bloggers of all stripes. Leave your link and check out other people’s links. I guarantee your horizons will expand, and your readership might too.
This swe-e-e-t acknowledgment wouldn’t be complete without a thank you to writer Karen McFarland. In addition to her warm and honest blog posts on life, challenges, politics and writing, Karen offers encouragement and support to I don’t know how many writers out there. Thanks Karen.
To wrap things up with a bow, next week, Thursday, Jan. 10, I’ll pass on the Super Sweet honors to a baker’s dozen wonderful bloggers, and open the floor to suggestions about the best ways to say thank you. Off now to Susie’s party. Hope to see you there!
