I’m hoping to start a chain reaction or a game of tag with this post so if you are reading it, consider yourself TAGGED! :^D I’m trying out Mr. Linky so make sure to add your link if you participate! (Oh and send anyone who reads your blog and wants to participate over here to sign Mr. Linky if they can so we can have all the links in one place!) And I wouldn’t cry if you left a comment too. :^D If you don’t know someone in the blogosphere in real life, what blogger would you most like to know in real life? Why?
Who in the blogosphere do you know in real life? Tell us how you know that person. Show us a picture (or a few) if you can. Tell us how excited you were (or how nervous?) when you found out they were blogging or when you convinced them to start blogging.
I know Corrie at One Gal’s Life in the Raw. We’ve known each other since 7th grade and have been close friends ever since, along with Julie who is the beautiful redhead pictured with us here. I have a feeling both of them might want to kill me after this. Fortunately I live too far from them for it to be possible. Of course, unfortunately I don’t live close to them so that we could go out to coffee at a moment’s notice either. That would be so fun.:
Corrie came on a family houseboat trip when we were just finishing 8th grade. If she didn’t want to kill me for the photo-booth one, I think I’ve ensured myself a priority spot on her hit-list for this one.
Corrie up and moved to Texas after 10th grade. I still remember how hard it was to say goodbye to her. Pretty much haven’t stopped missing her ever since! Here we are during a visit when we were Seniors in high school I believe.
We have always kept in close touch though and whenever we talk on the phone it’s as if no time at all has passed. I am confident we will remain friends until we are grandmas… except of course for me being on her list of people she would like to shoot repeatedly with a potato gun because of this post.
Both of us were in each others’ weddings (and Julie’s). Here is one from mine.
A couple of weeks ago when Corrie told me that she was thinking of starting a blog I almost jumped out of my skin with excitement because I figured she couldn’t help but be as funny and likable as she is in real life. And I was right. Her blog, so far has proven to be a sheer delight. And she already has regular readers and commenters. I think it took me 5 months worth of blogging to actually know if people read my blog regularly or at all! HA! :^D
I’m so happy she is in the blogosphere now. It makes our connection seem all the closer though we live a couple thousand miles away from each other.
So, who do you know? Or who do you wish you knew?
P.S. Feel free to go to specific people that you want to play and tell them that they are tagged!! :^D
