One of the most amazing things about blogging is the network of FRIENDS I’ve found here–people I know and love even though I haven’t “technically” met them. One of those dear friends is Kathryn McCullough, whose post on a “Very Bloggy Wedding” (where blogging-friends PLANNED the wedding, and then attended, meeting the blogging-bride in person for the first time) is a perfect example of how blogging truly changes our lives and friendships… Click the link here to see her post–it’s a MUST-read. :)

I have fantasies of celebrating my next book publication day with all my blogging friends. Love this reblogged post on “A very bloggy wedding”–it was a great success, I think!

Just a thought…but a pleasant one! ;)
Hugs to both of you!
What a fantastic post, I clicked over and had a read, it turned out so beautifully, and how wonderful everyone got together and arranged this, I loved it, and it does prove that through blogging we can meet so many wonderful people. :D
You are right, friend: This is the great thing about blogging.
