Happy Birthday dear friend....

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday dear Tara...Happy Birthday to you!

Today is Tara's bloggy birthday...she is one year old!
Tara introduced me to blogging.
She showed my this for the first time and I was hooked!
We recently had a conversation about blogging.
I have blogged on and off for the past year.
Not committed, love looking at blogs...but not sure if I like leaving comments,
and was not even interested in blogging each day.

I was in a blogger "funk".

I noticed that Tara when referring to a blog would use the persons first name...not their blog title.
I realized I had been approaching blogging from the wrong perspective.
These are people...not titles...not pictures of white kitchens...or living rooms...people...like me.
I know I was behind the curve (not so unusual)...

I found it strange honestly to be connected to someone I had never met in person.
Being a "people" person and a person who has worked my whole life listening to peoples most sacred stories and lives as a counselor...it seemed a strange forum to "connect" with people via a computer.

How wrong I was.

I have now...after that conversation...started approaching "people" on blogs.
I have enjoyed blogging so much more.
I am enjoying getting to know these friends...and love seeing the creative in so many people.
I just love getting lost (when I have time)...going from person to person.
You know when you have been on for an hour and find a whole bunch of new friends you did not even know existed...and you have know idea how you got there!
Love it!

Thank you Tara for introducing me to a whole bunch of new friends!
Happy birthday to my dear friend!

Head over to her place today and wish her happy birthday!
She has a great giveaway...the best I have seen in blog world...and I have seen them in person...amazing!
