Squirl's Nest

Thursday, July 07, 2005

And now for something completely different.

Thought I'd do a change of pace here. No ranting in this blog. What I want to say is that I'm really enjoying blogging. Bucky is the main reason I got into it. She's also the reason that I was so lucky to get so many good people coming here and commenting right away. I look at other blogs, good ones, including Bucky's, that have very few comments in the early days. She told the world I was out here and everybody came.

I want to say that I feel honored to have people enjoy my blog enough to read and comment. I'd still be out checking other blogs even if I weren't doing it myself anymore. But it is fun to put some blather (sorry Jamie Dawn) out here and see what people have to say.

I love all you guys. Thanks!!

I have to chuckle. After I had already named this post I noticed that Bucky had a Monty Python reference in her Wall Drug post. Two Monty Python references in less than 24 hours. It's a family thing.

Ladybug, thanks!

Mr B, is that why you come here? I was supposed to provide refreshments? Somebody should've told me that months ago...

I agree, Squirl. Blogging is like having a whole 'nuther group of friends to hang with -- assuming no one blocks my URL, that is...! ;)

Heck, if I thought you would have given snacks out, I would have mentioned that long ago.

Eclectic, when I did the Monday Motif on love, bloggers were mentioned. I've seen more bloggers rally round with great things to say when another blogger is down in the dumps. Really cool community.

Kitty, hugs right back. And, thanks for Open Box Buy. New blog pending folks.

Sierrabella, I'd never miss commenting back to you. I'm just not the snooty type. :-)

Mr B, and since this is a virtual forum, here's your virtual Twinkie. Enjoy!

Where's the cream filling?! Oh, sorry, thought I was a commercial for a sec.

Blogger Squirl said...

And a darned fine commercial you'd make. :-)

I haven't been around much lately (new job), but I too am glad I found my way to your blog, and I love and appreciate the fact that you continually check out both of mine!

I need a tissue. :::sniff sniff:::

Squirl--I'm glad you're out here in blogland--it just wouldn't be the same without you!

Requiescat, you were one of my original commenters. You also have very interesting blogs. Don't know how you find time to do two. I have trouble keeping up with one sometimes. Well, that and going to other people's blogs. :-) Thanks!

Effie, thanks, I really do appreciate that. I enjoy your comments and your blog, too, very much. You were also one of my original commenters. This is too cool. HUGS to you, too.

Hey, Squirl. Between news at work and news on the news, I'm feeling droopy today. Got nothing to say. But your post gives me a lift. You know you're one of my blog homies; you even made me an honorary third sister, which honored me greatly :) Thanks for posting on the bright side today. I agree, the bloggers I've met, including you and yours, are just the very nicest, most encouraging, compassionate, smart and funny people. I am happy to be in this company.

Susie, I know the terrible thing that happened in London. I hope the work news isn't too bad for you. I'm glad my post could give you a bit of a lift. Aren't the people in this little blog community great? And I love being able to count you as an honorary sister!

Kranki, thanks so much. I really do appreciate everyone stopping by.

Jess, well it just goes to show, you never know. Chicks or no chicks, I think you're having fun. :-)

August95, thank you. I am glad that I met you, too. I first saw you at Susie's site. Really cool how these things grow.

My daughter got me into blogging. It's been WAY more of an experience than I EVER expected!

Blogger Squirl said...

tshsmom, isn't blogging the coolest experience? I'm glad your daughter got you into it. The bloggers I read generally seem to be quite intelligent, creative and well-informed. My kind of playground. :-)

Mr B, there you go being a commercial again. You really missed your calling!

tshsmom, you're welcome. :-)

Too bad I'm not getting any cash for these commercials. Of course those companies probably want to actually SELL their product.

Squirl, I know how you like yellow flowers; my blog post today includes yellow ones. :)

Mr B, I guess there isn't even virtual money when you can't sell the product.

Danielle, thanks I'll be over.

I love checking in here ... and at all the other folks' blogs, too. I know why people get RSS readers, and good for them - they don't work for me, because part of my fun every day (every hour?) is to click on my bookmarks, one by one, sometimes in a particular order but most often at random and just see what this varied, talented, smart group of people is up to. It's like being vaguely hungry and going to a supermarket ...

Fri Jul 08, 03:00:00 PM  
Blogger Squirl said...

Hey, Nilbo, good to see you here. You know, I have all my bookmarks set too. Sometimes I go in order, sometimes not. Bucky's is top of my reading list. I'm not saying whether it's because she's so good, or because she's my sister. :-)

You're so right about the varied, talented, smart group of people here. I just love to read 'em.

Thanks, Jamie Dawn, as soon as I used the work blather I thought of you.
