So many nice people to love. . . . .Merry Christmas to all you lovely bloggers out there.
I'd post a pretty holiday picture if I knew how. Unfortunately, as many of you (especially the Firefox users) already know, I am, technologically speaking, mediocre at best with the webpage stuff. I don't know how to post a picture.
I've met so many great people through Blog Explosion: people I wish I could meet in real life. Physical real life, that is; there are all kinds of 'real life,' and getting to know people online is as real as anything could be. Everything but the eye contact.
Recent experience had left me VERY disillusioned with the online trust factor; I wasn't sure I could ever relax and learn to enjoy and trust people online again, after the way I was treated. But I did, and I am, and I have learned that the majority of people are sincere, and truthful, and, well, nice. I was unfortunate enough to encounter the other kind of people first, and it left scars. Those scars will always be there, but you BE people have more than made up for the unkindness and, yes, horrors, of my first internet encounters. I was too naive, and people took advantage of that.
If I write somewhat anonymously, and seem a little reluctant to share actual details sometimes, that is why.
Thank you, nice people out there in the great internet world of mommies, and daddies, and singles, and young people and older people and coots like me. . . . .
Online, we are on common ground, and are able to share and laugh and talk and learn without distractions. Just being bloggers gives us something in common.
Merry Christmas to all of you. Every. Single. One. Of. You.
No blogger left behind.
