Blogging for friendship



I was tagged by Bobby Revell to join him in his project to promote goodness and friendship in the blogosphere. I am so happy to write about it and share my thoughts.

I started blogging last year and have been amazed by how fast I developed many great friendships throughout. Even though I know them virtually through blogs, I feel like we are all old friends and could so easily meet and be instantly comfortable with each other in real life. The blogosphere is indeed a special place, and I’m happy to be part of it. I thank all who’ve welcomed me so kindly and generously. I look forward to lots more, and to making many new friends along the way.

So, to promote goodness and friendship in the blogosphere, I am hereby linking to all who have made it here even just for a while. Do visit them, they are all wonderful people! Please allow me some times (at least 2 or 3 days) to browse through all comments to find your links. I hope I’m not missing out on anyone but if I do, please forgive me and do drop me a comment, I will add your link!

Here’s to great friendships, I love all of you!

  5. Emila, thank you. I am glad I am able to visit whenever I can. Blogging is very addicting and sometimes take time away from my chores. It’s always a pleasure to see Norah. She has the cutest flip-flops in blogland!

  6. I like your blog. You are doing a great job. I will love to join in this draw. I love those Mugs, and I must say I like your taste of beauty and art. We share the same taste of beauty. When shopping for mugs, I normally go for mugs with cartoon characters drawn on the body, I hate plain mugs. I must confess these mugs are simply unique. Also, you are using this competition not just to get attention but to promote love and unity in blogging. Good work indeed. Keep it up. 🙂

  10. Hi Emilia, i am so touched with your blog and i did check out at once Bobby Revell’s blog who tagged you to join in the blogging friendship project. I too without hesitation decided to be part of such great cause and write about friendship. I would not vie for the mug though I love it the first time I saw how beautiful it is, but winning friends here is already a great prize for me.

    Hope you’ll take a look at my blog. Thanks!
