“We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.”
― John F. Kennedy
So often it seems we blog in a vacuum. I send out these words and pictures in the hopes that someone will enjoy them but especially at the beginning had no idea whether this was the case. Gradually the numbers of views climb and the numbers of subscribers and it becomes a rather heady feeling. People are looking at what I’m doing and they wish to see more of it. People start liking posts and leaving comments and that is very cool indeed. There have been few things as gratifying for me then the fact that something I have created has brought about interaction. The people who have commented on my blog have been thoughtful and appreciative and often caused me to think further about what I write about. Many of them have amazing blogs of their own that make me think and smile and generally blow my mind with the talent that they show.
John Clinock at Art Rat Cafe (http://johnclinockart.com) is an amazing writer, artist (in many different media) and poet. To visit his blog is to walk in beauty and thoughtfulness.
Dale Cooper (http://diaryofaninternetnobody.com/) writes amazingly thought provoking blogs and has amazingly creative and interesting videos.
Agnes Khooschwenk (http://dawnofdivinerays.wordpress.com) is a one stop-shop of modern spirituality. Her coverage both in her own blog entries and her reblogging of others casts a wide and wonderful net.
JK (http://thesecretkeeper.net) also has a far-ranging blog that consists of her own writing and art and media reviews of others. She brings amazing insight to the subjects she covers.
Kalabalu (http://kalabalu.wordpress.com) has a fun and fascinating blog.
Lori Buff of Future Relics Gallery (http://networkedblogs.com/TiBkl) is an amazing potter, humorous and talented writer and the friend who has known me the longest. Please check out her blog and her art.
Once started, it is difficult to stop giving shootouts to those who have encouraged and inspired so much in me. Not to mention those who’s blogs have given me hours of thought and diversion. For those not yet mentioned here, I will shortly be doing a sequel. You are appreciated beyond measure.
