First thing is first...parties are such a nice way to brighten up any winter blues. You get to mingle. You get to make new friends. You get to see some lovely things here and there. You get to be entertained for quite some time.
I am smitten with these bags from DrikaB..wonder if I can make one.
I am still finishing up visiting each blog from our hop, so please know if I haven't gotten to you -- I will be very soon. I am strolling through them...and as I stroll, I really have noticed a community of friendship building.
So, I am going to challenge you to take another itty bitty risk.
It may be oh so hard to do, but I believe it will be worth it. I believe it will give you an even stronger sense of belonging to something special.
Change your blog roll.
Invite some of these new found friends from the party or thru your travels in blog world to the prime real estate capital in your little corner of blog world.
Make it an honor to be on to be on your blog roll.
Everyone knows the blogs to go for this or that, but I assure you there are so many talented ladies out there....so many bloggers just yearning to feel connected.....to feel special. I know that you will make someone's year by inviting them to your blog roll.
Yes, it is tempting to have those blogs with +5000 followers caressing the sides, but I assure you they have everyone sneaking peeks into their world every minute of the day. But that little blog with 50 followers...that one you loved from 1st glance, well maybe your eyes were the only ones to grace their page in a while.
So go ahead..invite them to your blog roll. That little blog will feel so special...so humbled by your invitation, and who knows...they just might return the honor. :)
So...are you up for the challenge?
PS The giveaway winner will be announced tomorrow! Best wishes. :)
