One of the things I enjoy about having a blog is meeting new "friends". Even though they are friends I have never met face-to-face; over time, it just seems like I have gotten to know them. Some of my blog friends I have met up with over on Pinterest as well as Facebook. Some of them I simply know from visiting their blogs and seeing what they are up to. A few of them I have known since the first day I started writing this blog. I've learned about their families, pets, hobbies, happy times, sad times, accomplishments, how they celebrate holidays, what they like to read, and the list goes on and on. All things that you gradually learn over time about your friends that you know face-to-face. I even find myself talking about my blog friends to other people; but I always have to clarify by saying something like "you know, the one with such and such blog". It's rather amazing how the internet has connected so many people. And now with Pinterest, a person can discover so many blogs, that it is really not possible to follow all of them. However, tonight I came across one that after looking through a lot of her posts, I just know I could be friends with her if we met. And so I found it a necessity to begin following her blog, and I have even linked her blog to my side bar with other blogs that I enjoy going to. At this moment she has no idea who I am, but I think she must be very nice, and I look forward to seeing what she has to write about in the future. The name of her blog is Serendipity Patch. Maybe some of you have already heard of her; but just in case you haven't, if you like gardening, crocheting, quilting, and sewing, I think you will be quite inspired.
