this wonderful world of blogging

I don't think I'm alone in the way I feel about blogging. It seems bizarre on the face of it, truly it does. But blogging has become very important to me. Because of the people and the connections. Before blogging, I would have thought it a tad ridiculous to think that I could "meet" people this way and come to consider them true friends. But I do. And as silly as it seems on the surface, I've really come to love some of these people. No, I've never met them in person. And I probably never will. Yet they mean the world to me. I love hearing about their lives. I treasure the minutes I "spend" with them. I want only the very best for them in everything they do.

Nymeth is one of these people. She is an absolute treasure! She's always, always, always sweet and gracious. She's intelligent, but in no way pretentious. She writes the most exquisitely beautiful and thoughtful book reviews. She's taken her own valuable time to help Annie and me, never complaining about my silly questions. In short, she is a beautiful person!

And as unbelievable as it seems, she just celebrated her one-year blogoversary (or whatever the appropriate term is). It seems unbelievable, because it feels as if I've "known" her for years. Anyway, to celebrate both this milestone and BYFAB week, Nymeth is giving away not one, but five books! And let me tell you, they're good ones! But to find out what they are, you're going to have to go see for yourself!

Happy one year, Nymeth!

I agree, it's so hard to explain my love of blogging for non-blogger :)

You couldn't have put it better, debi. Nymeth is a wonderful blogger! I didn't know exactly what to expect when I started blogging, but I've been wonderfully impressed by what I've encountered so far.

Can I just say "ditto"? :) It does feel like she's been blogging much longer than a year! This whole blogging community is something special. Like you, I never thought that I'd make friends online, but then I started blogging about books and here I am! And I'm so happy about it :)

Aww, Debi. This post made my day. My whole week! You know you're one of my favourite people, and I cannot thank you enough for your constant kindness, warmth and friendship. And it does feel like we've all known one another for longer than a year, doesn't it? Here's to many more years like this one :)

What a sweet post! Debi, I know you are certainly one of MY best friends and I hope that our families can meet face to face one day. Now I'm off to "meet" your friend. :-)
