Happy Blog Appreciation Day!Â
Why is today different than all other blogging days?Â Â Because today we reflect on how wonderful all the other bloggers are in our virtual lives.Â Â Don’t you frequently feel closerÂ toÂ a bloggerÂ than “real” friends and family, even when you haven’t even met the person?
If I sent you a photo ofÂ your blog, I apologize for the awful yellow tint.Â It is a combination of three factors — a mediocre cell phone camera,Â ugly halogen lighting, and the fact that I’m a terrible photographer.Â Ask Sophia.Â I always take photos of her with her head chopped off.
Now this is a little embarrassing.Â You weren’t supposed to send me photos of you reading my blog.Â I’m supposed to send photos of me reading YOUR blog.Â Â What kind of meglomaniac asks others to send him photos of his own blog?
That said, I’m not going to complain.Â You are truly kind.Â And I’ll put up all the photos in a few minutes.Â
Now, spread the love around.
