Happy Valentine's Day

Another edition of the weekly Thursday Thirteen.

Happy Valentine's Day all you guys and gals. Today is the day of LOVE! Yes! I have a darling husband that I love dearly and I could certainly start a list here telling you all the reasons why I love him... but, I'm thinking you probably won't find those reasons nearly as important as I do... so how about a love list that we can share?

I love blogging and let me count the ways...

13. My husband says that I'm a happier person when I'm blogging. See... it is good for you. It's good for your soul!

12. You get to find someone who shares similar interests, a sense of humor, and strike up a friendship... much like my blogging buddy - Susan at West of Mars.

11. You get to step on top of whatever soapbox you want and rant or rave or vent... and develop a fan base while doing it.

10. Nothing makes surfing the internet more enjoyable that popping on to someone's blog and seeing what they think on a topic.

9. Learn something new. Learn something new. Learn something new.

8. Get to know your multiple personalities and give them voice!

7. You get to be one with the force! Also known as the internet....

6. You know you love something when you can spend endless hours just admiring it... much like the blogosphere.

5. The Meme... You know it. You love it. You anxiously await it's weekly arrival!

4. I love site traffic. Yes. I like all those little clicks and I lovingly check my traffic meters at least two or three times a day.

3. I've gone to bed at night and as I've drifted off to sleep.. I've thought about the blog post I'd like to research and write... and post...

2. I've clicked on someone's blog and... *gasp* experienced blog envy!

1. Mostly, I love the feeling of community and the group of bloggers I've connected with.... Thank you for feeding my obsession. :) Have a lovely Valentine's!

What?? I went to bed last night after the Pens game without seeing a lovely link love AND myself well described in #8 (multiple personalities have their voices)?? *grin*

You are a darling and you deserve all the traffic you're generating. I'm glad we've become blog buds and hope it'll develop into a long-lasting friendship.

Happy TT!!!!

Oooh...blog envy. Been there, had that. Which is why I had mine redesigned at the beginning of the year, and I like it much better now.

It used to be a lot harder to think of things to blog about; but now I find it a lot easier. Hope the content is still interesting! ;-)

Thanks for coming by my blog! You're entered to win the contest for an advance copy of my book! (Or the current one, if you prefer. *wink*)

Blogging is a good way to socialize without having to clean up the house, make noshies, or even make sure everyone's available at the same time.

That last is a blessing for everyone who's ever thought of a devastating comeback or witty observation...about fifteen minutes after the conversation has meandered to a new topic.

I loved the comments your readers left almost as much as your list! GREAT idea!

Blogger jdoriot said...

Your list is so true. As I was reading, I was trying to pick out the ones that I really related to...and I had to choose them all! I'm a site traffic junkie too...Btw, saw that you were one of the top commenters at the TT hub! Woohoo!!

I love you list this week.

And yes, I know I still owe you a book review. I promise to get it posted and up before I get on a plane to Manila this weekend.

See, I knew it was a good idea to read the book early - getting time to write the review was the hard part!

Great TT! Blogging is the best, isn't it. As a stay-at-home-mom and writer, it's opened up so many doors for me. And, it's really changed my life. :)
