Party like it's 1987

Good communication is as stimulating as black coffee and just as hard to sleep after. Anne Morrow Lindbergh, 'Gift From the Sea'

This blog party was such a good idea. Instead of feeling like, "Wow, I wish this party would end so I can take off my pantyhose. I felt like, "Wow. Now I know why blogging is addictive and so wildly popular."

It was so nice to meet other moms and women who can relate to each other. C.S. Lewis said, "We read to know we're not alone." I think that's why we write, also. It takes some guts to write and publish some of the things that are out there but I know I benefited from reading those posts.

There are so may great, creatively written blogs. On top of that, the blogs themselves are so creative and cute and beautiful and so...crafty. I have so much to learn about blogging; I'm so behind!

It's like I just NOW discovered the Rubik's Cube.

I feel the same way. It's a huge blogging world. I just discovered it a few months ago myself. It's a huge learning curve, but the party helped me see what others were doing!

I feel that way too. The pary was lots of fun, but I'm exhausted! It was great to meet everyone and discovering new blogs.I have lots to learn.

A long time ago, women used to meet for sewing circles and quilting bees- they chatted about their lives, their kids, their husbands-- our society isn't like that anymore, but that communication with other people is so essential. Blogging is, I suppose, this generation's "quilting bee." :)

Am I making any sense at all?

Yes, I know what you're saying GM. It's a patching together of scraps to make something warm and useful. Wait, you're calling us scrap? Just kdding. You're right, it's a blogging bee.
