My 7th blogiversary was this past weekend...(has it really been 7 years!) I was spending it at the Endless Mountains Fiberfestival.
I had a great time. I had so much fun meeting and visiting with friends....old friends..new friends..some friends were online friends, that I have never met in real life before...you know...IRL.
A url (Uniform Resource Locator, or previously Universal Resource Locator) is what I type in the address bar when I visit my online friends...in what I call my Un Real Life....or URL.
So it is always exciting to me when I have the chance meet someone that I have only known in unreal life, in real life. Suddenly, someone who has only been words and photos on a screen- becomes a face, a handshake, or a hug. The transformation of two dimensional to three dimensional fascinates me. The sound of a voice, a facial expression, a mannerism...all of these things (and more) add to the complexity and personality of a person, a friend. I am amazed - captivated and charmed.
After all these years of blogging, you would think it would become ordinary...to meet someone from URL IRL. It is not. It is still amazing.
Whether you are an irl or url reader... on my blogiversary, I want to say "thank you"!
I share my coffee with you in the mornings...or maybe some wine in the evenings...I share my random thoughts, my photographs, my projects. I think of you, I thank you. You comment, encourage, entertain and enrich my life.
Whether you are here for the fiber, the garden, the wildlife, the walks, the observations, the river, or just a random google search...thanks for stopping by the riverrim. Happy Blogiversary to you ~ the reader~ nice to spend another year with you!
