Just about one full year ago a I wrote a few poems about some supportive bloggers that I absolutely love, Supportive Bloggers, 1st poem, Supportive Bloggers, 2nd Poem, and Supportive Bloggers, 3rd and Final(ish) Poem. I pulled them up for a read the other day and was very pleased to see that practically all of the people/blogs I had mentioned in them, are still active and just as supportive to the date!
It’s extremely exciting to see that so many of the like minded people that you follow on the web, can in fact be considered as long term friendships! Talk about closing the gap between virtual and reality. I came to the conclusion that virtual friendships, much like face to face relationships, become richer and hold more depth/meaning with time! Not only does this reinforce my confidence in the time spent here over the last 2 years (yes its been that long! In two months to be exact!) but it also makes me super excited to keep at it and continue to grow friendships both new and old.
That said, it’s time to get a little sappy!
There are a few bloggers that I’ve began to follow since I wrote these poems who are super active, just as supportive, and deserve the mention every bit as much as the bloggers in my poems. First I’m going to list a few, not as crafty as a poem I know, but I think it’s safe to say I’m a bit lazier that I was then lol. Some of these bloggers have been floating around WP for a very long time, yet I’ve only just found them not too long ago, and some are fairly new(ish) Either way check these awesome peeps out, they’re some amazing humans behind the phenomenal blogs! (In know I’ve missed some, and I apologize. These are just a few that really stand out in my mind AND my notifications!) The following blogs are MUST READS, real shining stars!
Now, there is another blogger in particular that I didn’t put on this little list. She also came along my path since the poems, and she is PHENOMENAL! I think every single person who follows Dani can agree that Touch My Spine Reviews is one shiny f**kin’ star!!
Every single one of Dani’s posts are packed with energy, stuffed with emotion, and overflowing with support to everyone she comes in contact with. She’s been through much in life, yet she continues to help and send positive messages to everyone around this virtual space we share. Not only is she one of the most supportive bloggers around, but she’s also an AMAZING book reviewer! I keep up on all of her reviews, and follow her opinions on the books to the T! She’s read every single one of my books, and I absolutely adore her reviews on them. I couldn’t be any more grateful, or touched by her interest in my stuff, or her “fangirling”.
So, in a few less words… THANK YOU DANI!! YOU ARE AN INSPIRATION, AN EXAMPLE OF PURE AUTHENTICITY, AND A TRUE FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH IN THE BOOK WORLD!
