Armchair BEA: Nurturing Relationships
Talking about relationships I've formed with different bloggers is easy! I've made so many good friends!
There's one friend that I've made who I firmly believe is my SFAM (Sister from another mother). That person would be Heather from Buried in Books. When she and I met at Goodreads over a controversial topic we became instant friends. It didn't take long before we were e-mailing each other and then calling each other on the phone-Good thing we both have unlimited long distance because some of those calls were Marathon Long!
Heather is kind, compassionate and the best friend anyone could ask for.
She has this gentle southern accent that just draws you in and and makes you feel comfortable right away. There isn't anything she doesn't know about me and vice versa.When one of us is having a bad day, the other is there to support and listen. When advice is needed, it is given but more importantly there is that connection between us that knows when to just listen and when to offer advice. The same goes when one of us is having a great day :o]
My friendship with my SFAM, Heather, is one of the best things Blogging has done for me!
I've also made friends with many authors, mostly through forums or twitter. There's three friends that I adore who I think are down to earth and so Blogger friendly!
Josephine Angelini who sent me a signed ARC of Starcrossed because she was worried about me reading the book on the computer because it is hard for me because of my illness. She is one of the sweetest ladies I've ever met. Starcrossed is FanFaeryTastic and a One-Sit-Read! I've read it 3 times!
Kiki Hamilton-Author of The Faerie Ring, who sent me an ARC for my Birthday along with some amazing bookmarks, all because she knew how badly I wanted to read this book. The Faerie Ring was also FanFaeryTastic and a One-Sit-Read! Also read 3 times! I think it's time to send my review to Kiki!
Amber Argyle who chats with me about the symbolism in her cover and about Witch Song and talks about the next installment and actually asked for advice and took mine! Silly Woman-Teehee!
So, between the wonderful Bloggers I've met-So many of them-and the wonderful Authors plus so much more.
Blogging has been a journey that I would never trade. It's a journey of self-discovery, exploring yourself and others and courage to put yourself out there for the world to see.
