Bloggers Rock!

I've alluded to this before...but I had two main reasons for starting my blog back in July of last year:

1. To create a log of our year-long European adventure for future reference.
2. To keep friends and family in North America updated on our crazy doings.

Not in my wildest dreams did I expect to find this wonderful community of bloggers from all over the world.

I could wax poetically about what a revelation the blogosphere has been for me, but today I just want to ask all of you who so kindly check in with me on a regular basis to drop by my amazing bloggy friend Amy Y instead.

Amy is pregnant with twins as a surrogate mother - for the second time - and she had a bit of a scare this week. She is currently on bedrest, and I'm sure she'd appreciate lots of sticky vibes to get her babies to stay put!

Please go now and say hi, and while you're at it, check out her beautiful boys!

Wow, surrogate to twins??? I'm going now.

Dawn said...

I'll go straight there. You are very sweet, by the way, for thinking of your friend like this.

Oh Heidi, I KNOW--SAME HERE! I originally started blogging the first time just to have a place to sayhow I really felt without having to censor myself so people wouldn't "worry" about me. Then it became a journal-minus-pen-and-paper, and now it has become this SOMETHING ELSE. THIS MUCH-BETTER THING THAT I LOVE. And you, my friend, are a part of it. I love my blog friends; I love the support, the fun, the memes, the awards, I love all of it. I especially, especially love getting to "know" people that I would not otherwise have a chance to know. This makes me happy. And now I am heading over to your friend's "place"...

Being so far away from family and friend, I started blogging for the same reason...to let family and friends back "home" keep more in touch with us!!
The blogging world is such a wonderful place...more than I ever imagined..and so many fantastic people!!
I will go over to Amy's right now and send to her my good thoughts!!
What a good friend you are to help make her days a bit brighter!!!

You're right the blogosphere is fabulous for just as you say, connecting all sort of different people in different circumstances.

I remember months of bed rest with my first - I'll pop along and say hi de ho.
cheers
