Blogoversary Day 6: Blogger Lovin'

I talked about authors, I talked about publishers, I talked about me, now it's time to talk about bloggers! All of YOU, who have made a difference in my blogging year! So today, I want to take the time to show appreciation to those who have been a big help to me throughout the year, and those who have made blogging a welcome and incredible experience for me. Also, I'm sure I forgot someone, but every one who's ever shown kindness or said hello, you have shown me how much this community has heart!

Special Thanks
Not that all y'all aren't special, but these fellow bloggers have become very close friends and have helped me immensely through the year. Sometimes it's advice I desperately needed, a second opinion, or simply letting me vent about problems that arose. This has meant so much to me to know I have people I have never met in real life who I would trust with my heart and soul.


These bloggers have a been a constant in my blogging year with their friendship and support. I talk to these peeps almost on a daily basis and we have bonded either because of our matching fabulousness, or books we both loved, or a little of both. I know my year would have been so much different without them!

Regular Commenters
I may not have striked up a personal relationship with these bloggers, I still feel like I've come to know them from these comments and me visiting them as well. I am so very thankful for their constant visits and entertaining/wonderful comments. Reading these makes my day, every day, and I just hope they know how much they have made a difference, and how much I appreciate their loyalty and support!

Eeeep.. ok, I know, I KNOW that I have missed someone and I'm SO sorry. I didn't want to name names at first because I'm afraid I'll offend someone who will blacklist me or think I don't notice/appreciate them but I just went through my last 800 comments *blank stare* and I think I'm seeing double, now. So if I missed you, please don't think you don't matter! 

I have made friends for life that I have never even met yet, I have developed friendships with people who I look forward to talking to on a daily/weekly basis! On twitter, through comments, on Facebook, you all have no idea how much this community means to me! I am overwhelmed with all the great people I have met and if I ever think back on my blog days when I'm 90 years old, it's the people and the community that I will remember! So thank you, for just being you!
