Well, second to Angelina Jolie.
Of all days for me to celebrate my 500th post, it is the one that follows my 499th post.
Truly amazing, isn't it?
Really, though, I felt so connected to my blog community yesterday. All the support and cyber hugs .... I felt them all.
The people who commented via my facebook link also totally rocked my world.
So this, my 500th post, is dedicated to you. My blog friends.
You guys make this fun.
You make me want to keep going.
You let me pout and whine and get mad.
You just shake your heads and don't judge me when I share some of the stupid things I have done.
You laugh and hurrah my open letters and have my back when I get in trouble for them.
And most importantly, you made me not follow through with my move when I threatened it. By wanting to come with me.
I have worked hard on this blog. And I've enjoyed meeting all of you. And I won't let the lurkers spoil it for me by moving and possibly never finding you again.
So, my friends, I thank you for coming by to read whatever my wee little brain puts together.
I thank you for the hugs and the laughter.
And I would like to reward a couple of my peeps with a gift.
Just a small gift. A token of my appreciation.
I will be sending out Starbucks cards to a couple of you. I'm not sure yet how many. But I'm pretty confident that however many there are, they will be small.
All I ask of you in return is that you visit each other.
Leave a comment with a link back to your favorite post from your own blog, then visit at least one other commenter's link and let him/her know that I sent you.
Because I adore you all, and it would make my heart happy to see you get a chance to meet each other.
That's all. I'm pretty easy, wouldn't you say?
Don't answer that if you were at that party back in '88, okay?
Ready ..... Set ...... GO!
