Never underesitimate the value of your online friendships

I might be new to blogging but I am an old hand at chatting online. It all started about 6 years ago when I was planning my wedding. I joined an online forum to talk about table plans, napkin colours, and wedding favours.I loved that no matter how crazy I got in the planning process there was always someone with an idea or trick to help me out and calm me down. And then as all the wedding being planned happened we , as a group, started the next phase of lifes. Some where planning families , some starting businesses and some were finding married lifes tough. And throughout it all we had each other to turn. We began meeting up in 'real life' and turned our online friendships in real life ones. Because of talking online I have made friends I would never have met otherwise and my life is richer for it. I am still a member of that original forum , tho the forum has mutated of the years , and now I'm also a member of a couple of others too . The current fav being .

So I would like to take this moment to thank all my online friends , for keeping sane, broadening my horizons and introducing me to many a obsession!!

I love you all!! :)


  1. I'm with you! You can make some great friends online. Who'd have thunk it?

    I met a fellow blogger earlier this year, and will see her again at the end of July, together with a couple of other bloggers and I can't wait. It is such a supportive community. And they're all so much fun!

  2. I'm your friend now too! Found you through Bloggy Moms. Hope you'll "like" me back at:
