blogiversary url and irl

Photobucket

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!

Just wondering if you've seen Deb Robson's post about distaffs...

You came to mind as soon as I started to read it.

I can't believe you've been blogging so long. Time sure does fly! Thanks for making my life richer and my mornings more fun. It is good to know that you are 'out' there.

You've made me realize that I missed my blogiversary this year.

Pat K said...

Congratulations! And may there be many more!

Sue said...

Happy blogiversary! Thanks for being one of my URLs!

fiberjoy said...

Seven Years! Congratulations!!!
You must be one of the earlier bloggers. Blogging wasn't yet on my radar way back then. Let's see... "Feel Good Librarian" was the first blog I learned about, around 2004.

Odd, and perhaps sad, URL people almost seem more "real" than some IRL people.

Keep up the wonderful posts.

You have been a joy and worthy of many visits....Ginny

happy blogiversary (blogoversary as my countdown widget calls it!). :)
I was thinking about you this past weekend knowing you were at the Endless Mountains festival. I was wishing I could just hop in the car and take a drive over into PA to meet you in person. Maybe Rhinebeck? :)

Sharon said...

Happy birthday Riverrim blog!! - its been great to be a (very tiny) part of your blog!

Cathy said...

Yea - Lucky 7 - at least that's the way I can't help but see it.

I, too, immediately thought of you when I read Deb's distaff post (Joanne's question)

Here we are networking in URL and IRL... and I hope someday to give you a big IRHug!!

Debbie said...

Cyndy, Happy Anniversary! Glad to know you in both URL and IRL! And thanks for all the wonderful posts!

Leigh said...

Wow, congratulations! That's seven years of great posts!

Marcy said...

Happy Blogiversary, Cyndy! May you have many more. I'm happy to be an url who graduated to irl. Huggs!
