I'm not the most punctual of bloggers out there but still I like to share my stories and connect with others. If I don't get a chance to read other people's blogs at some point during the day then it really irritates me. I find that by reading what others are going through I find solace in my struggles and encouragement to just keep going. Other blogs just make me laugh out loud, literally. Then there are the local bloggers whom I love to read because it gives me different perspectives in the goings-on of my neck of the woods. I sometimes find out about things to do that I never even knew existed.
I'm not a huge social person. I do not like large crowds, I don't like driving to places I'm not familiar with and I'm not comfortable in starting up a conversation to a perfect stranger when in social settings. I cannot always take my son places so to meet other moms is not always an easy task for me. Reading blogs are a way for me to speak to people, make friends, and stay informed without getting my stomach in a knot.
Why am I telling you this? Well, one of the places I like to hang out is the The Ultimate Blog Party. They have it every year and it is a fun way to see a whole bunch of other blogs, meet some great folks, and oh yeah ~ you can win some really great prizes. I've even won a few of them last year! They are actually holding a pre-party prize giveaway right now. They are giving away a KODAK Zi6 Pocket Video Camera right now. Who doesn't like free!
See ya at the Party!
