Frantically waving my magic wand to make wishes come true.

Tuesday, October 19, 2010


There is a Twitter stream going on today where people "thank a blogger": Those people who made a difference in their lives, either online or off (and sometimes both). I'm not sure how it started, but it's pretty cool to read the Tweets.

I'm having one of those weeks where it'd be so easy to just pass this one by with a "sorry, too busy. . .", but I have a moment of quiet and wanted to join the chorus of voices.

First, I'd like to thank every one who has ever stopped by and left a comment (yes, even you Anonymous). I'd have a hard time doing this blog without your feedback, and I still say a silent "yay!" when I see that I have a comment to read.

And, I'd like to thank Liz, my friend and now my boss, who got me interested in blogging and then asked me to write a review. That one review snowballed and now I am part of something so much bigger than I ever expected. Thanks Liz!

I'd like to thank my homeschooling blogging friends: the hilarious Nancy (who I'd link to but I think she's still "underground"---I first met her as Alpha Dogma and am so happy I found her new digs), the inspiring Jessica, the veteran, super helpful Karen, the compassionate Beck, the friendly Tracey, the supportive Deb. And to newbie homeschooler (though homeschooled herself) and new mom to baby #4, Kristen, thank you for your kind words and for listening to my advice!

I also want to send a hug to Summer, who I somehow lost when she changed blogs and is going through a really tough time. May things get so much better for you soon.

Thank you to Robin, who has been around for so long, always encouraging and wonderful. Same goes to Issa, my friend with the kind heart.

Thank you to the many amazing Shredheads who have supported me when I was trying to get into shape (and who will hopefully still be there when I decide to try again). Bill, you deserve a big thank you for being such a great, supportive motivator.

And, many thanks to my "Boston" blogging family who I love to see at the local events: Tania, Roxanna, Christine, Christine (we go way back!), Sarah, the power trio of Jane, Audrey & Sharon, Velma and so many others. You help me take this abstract "out there" world and bring it closer to home.

Before I go: I know I forgot you; I'm sorry! I'm getting tired! So let me send the last thank you to all of the bloggers who try to support and befriend instead of tear down and belittle. There is so much ugly in the world, I'm glad to have found people who are trying, in their own way, to make things better for us all.
