1. To finally see each other FACE to FACE
2. To talk, talk, talk, talk, talk (well you get the idea!!)
3. To ask questions that you always wanted to but were afraid too!!
4. To take pictures, pictures, pictures and more pictures!!
5. To take those pictures and show our families that these great bloggers are now no longer "invisible!!!"
6. To meet these people who have become such special people in MY life.
7. To finally meet those whom I have learned to rely on as "great friends".
8. To see the pictures of their families and children that we were not allowed to see online!!
9. To ask questions that we were putting off asking that now face to face we can ask!!
10. To realize that blogging is one of the greatest ways to get to know NEW people and to expand the way we all get to know one another.
11. To find out that you have so many wonderful friends all over the world and to be fortunate enough to finally get to meet them.
12. To use the internet as a GREAT tool and a friendly tool to make our world more connected.
13. To make my life fuller by bringing such "wonderful NEW friends" into it...Those that
I will cherish for a long long time!!
Thanks everyone for some of the best days of

See? This is exactly how I feel too! And yet... my family WILL NOT understand that these friendships are just as REAL and just as important as my friends I see around town. I don't FEEL like I'm hiding out in a make-believe world here! DO YOU??? I FEEL like I have enriched my REAL life (that you are a part of my REAL life) ... but that you are people that I would have NEVER had the opportunity to know without the internet! I mean... what are the CHANCES that we would have ever come across each other without it? I feel so BLESSED with my internet friends! I do think it's kind of sad that sOMe people, because of fear, will never actually "meet" any of their on-line friends. That saddens me. Because these friendships are just priceless! And FUN!!!

Hey, great post. Soooooo true. It's great the people you meet through blogging. Check out my walk down Memory Lane today.

I love it....I think the Spring Fling thing that Jane mentioned today is a GREAT idea. Maybe we could get together in Atlanta.

I can't wait to meet more blogging friends.

My TT is up, too.

I have never been lucky enough to meet an on-line friend, but I wish I had been able to.

I am new at this but it has already been a blessing...

Everybody is welcome!!!

Peggy said...

well we are not that far apart so I think after the holidays we should meet for a day outing and gather up some other blog neighbors!

It sounds like you had a wonderful time! I'm glad for you. Blogging friends are special, no doubt about it!
