I blog to tell stories and to vent. Maybe one day I can open my blog up to my family and close friends but for now this is my little hidey-hole from them.
And There Are Days When I Wanna Tell Them, "I'm Sick of All Ya'll" and Run Away to North Dakota.
Mom said, "you told us that already."
And I did too!!
But I only made to northeastern Oklahoma... another story for another day.
Over the past 5 years, I noticed that people come and go. They either get bored with it or lose internet access becuz of job loss or something. Some have lost their jobs over blogging.
I can not stress that point enough. I know you want all your hard work and wit to be noticed but not at the loss of income. Lost a good bloggin' buddy that way. I miss him.
Things happen in Real Life that takes a person from BlogWorld... some good, some bad. I miss those gals too.
And then there was King Tom. Still brings me to tears... Gone but not forgotten.
You see I form attachments to my readers and to those blogs that I read. An invisible bond that I rely on to cheer me up thru the hard times.
And you all have done a great job at that! When I was nominated for Okie Blog Awards, I cried!! Somebody likes me!!
Roy was like, "people read that."
Yep they do.
And you keep me grounded, if MizAngie doesn't call me an old heifer every now and then I might just get the big head thinkin' I'm All That!!
I mean I am.
I have learned from those blogs I read. I gain a little insight into other worlds thru your lives. Oh the place you take me and the things I've learned. SkyClad Dancin' for one and that HuskerGirls Rock for another. You know that at one time Nebraska was the EVIL EMPIRE to us Okies.
We've had gift swaps and shared Christmas Cards. Kristie's was so funny... I love her quirky sense of humor.
Oh have I made friends. But I've only met just one, Jean. She lives just across the lake. Super Sweet Lady. Maybe this summer, I'll get to meet Georgie and The RedneckDiva... you never know.
Yes. Really good friends. I've been with Katy & Gina for a long time. I love you girls like you are my own. And there are countless others that have touched my heart... Susan, Kendra, and Adriane. I want that trio with me when I get into a bar fight!! Them is some fierce bitches!!
I started bloggin' under my Velvettush ID on a lark but I have gained so much... I wouldn't change it for the world.
You ask about SkyClad Dancin'??
Dancin' Nekked in the Moonlight... Tequila is Optional.
Now why do you blog?
Are you lookin' for friendship?
Do you do it to keep in touch with family on the other side of the world?
Do you have stories to tell... your memoirs??
Link up if you care to, We here in Oklahoma are open to all bloggers who want to play along.
Or WHY DO YOU READ BLOGS???
