Tammy posted her 500th post yesterday. And like she says, that is pretty amazing with her one little finger that she types with. Her posts are always thought provoking and full of her feelings and heart.

I hardly ever notice how many posts I've posted. I have been at this a long time and so I checked this morning and this will be my 1,278th post. Whew! That's a lot of posts. My posts on the other hand come straight from my head as I think them and are hardly ever as beautifully thought out and put together as Tammy's are. I sometimes forget to use spell check and my grammar is certainly not perfect. Tammy's posts are inspirational and her photography is beautiful and her writing talent comes shining through. And she does this with that one finger and that beautiful mind of her's. I'm so glad to know her and glad we found each other. And I'm awed that she even reads my mumbo jumbo. Thank you Tammy. In fact thank all of you, my blogger buddies for always being there, ready to tell me what you think and for ignoring all my misspellings and grammer mistakes.

I've posted great joy, great pain, fear, & silliness. I've typed through tears and humiliations and indecision's. I've shared dreams and disappointments, given weather reports and book reports. I've shared photos and recipes and some pretty bad poetry, lol. I've just pretty much shared my life's ups and downs on the World Wide Web, thinking nothing I had to say would mean much to anyone but me. But the thing is I've connected through the years with people I'd have never known otherwise. From Ireland down to Florida. Funny how that happened. The support I got from these people during my darkest days got me through things I'd have never thought I could get through. I never thought I'd put my bare feelings out for anyone to come along to read but that's what I've done, as other bloggers do and those are the bloggers I am most attracted to, people who share their real lives.

As I am about to start a whole new phase of my life we'll see where that leads me. And I'm glad I have this way to share it because even when you think no one could possibly care what you have to say, guess what? They do. And for that I am thankful.
Have a great Friday everyone!

We both are journaling with heart and I have come to know and love you through your words. For the record I love and miss your poetry.

We give each other strength!

Wow, Robbin, you have posted a lot of thoughts and ideas. I've only posted 350, since beginning my blog in September of 06. In reality, I don't have quite enough leisure time to be a blogger, but I love my blogging circle of friends so much that I can't let it go. I'm so glad that you (and your blog) are a part of that circle.

PS. I agree with Tammy. I miss your poetry. Of course, I can't complain too loudly as I haven't been posting any either. *grin*

It is the sense of community of thought that makes blogging work I think. I love Tammy's blog for ten or so reasons, I love Cynthia's for 10 totally different reasons, and on and on I could go. I love yours as well, Robbin, and one of the reasons is the quiet courage and strength I see you display even when you question something. Yep, I love my blogger's and am glad we all have this medium to touch one another in even this small way.

Happy 1,278th!!! I too love the sharing of our lives, thoughts and feelings! I too am amazed by Tammy's beautiful post!

Wow, you are an old pro at this blog game. I have only been posting since last year, I think. This morning's post was my 288th one. And I keep thinking I've run out of anything to write about. But I usually come up with something totally useless to say and put it out there for the world to read.

Congrats on your 1,278th

Hey Tammy, I've not been so inspired lately to write poetry but it'll come back and it makes me smile that you read my poetry. Talk soon!

Robbin with 2 B's! said...

Aisling for you and Tammy to read my poetry is something because you two are my favorite poets you know and you both should be published so thank you. And I hope you and I can talk soon. Love you bunches!

Robbin with 2 B's! said...

Oh thank you Mary, isn't it amazing how close you can feel to people like this? I love it.

Robbin with 2 B's! said...

Hi Debra, Tammy is amazing for sure and I am blessed to know her and you too! Both of you give me such inspiration for sure.

HI Shirley, I know I feel like nobody would be interested in my thoughts and doings but they are which is why I like following you, your honestly in your thoughts and sharing your life is what I love.
