Sharing the Love

The Contented Crafter and myself have been plotting (isn’t it fantastic that two people on opposite sides of the world can plot?) something lovely for Fran, a fellow blogger. She’s written about it in this post, but actually the post is much more than that. I wholeheartedly agree with her thoughts on the value of our online community – thank you Pauline for expressing them so well!

The Contented Crafter

In my last post I shared the story of this, the ‘Dangler of International Happiness’


Many comments focused on the extraordinary gifts that we receive from each other within our blogging communities.  Yes we receive all kinds of happy mail from fellow bloggers, gifts expected and unexpected.  Random Acts of Kindness that make a smile appear or maybe even a tear drop or two.  But even more precious is the friendship, understanding and positive support shared when times are hard, hearts are opened and just the smallest thoughtful word can make a big difference.

I have read posts that have questioned the reality of relationships made within the world of bloggers, claiming that we can invent ourselves to be quite other than we are, claiming that we can’t quite trust who or what is on the end of any comment, that we only present ourselves in our best possible light.
