I love people! There are so many good, kind people in the world just out there doing their thing, living their lives, quietly influencing others by their example.
I "met" just such a person today and I'm so thrilled! Remember day one of my blogging life? (Come on people, it was only three days ago!!) I said one of the reasons I wanted to start blogging was because I've been obsessed with reading other people's blogs for months and thought it would be a cool thing to do. You name it, people are blogging about it. Kids, dogs, sports, conspiracy theories, it's all out there! I'm drawn to blogs about decorating because that's one of my passions.
There's one particular blog I felt an instant connection to from the first day I read it. The woman who writes it, Rhoda, posts about all of the things I'm interested in. As a decorator she helps people turn their houses into homes, she re-purposes furniture and accessories, loves a good bargain and is totally into garage sales. All of the things I love!
So, yesterday I sent her an e-mail through her site to introduce myself and tell her how much reading her blog inspired me to start my own. I just wanted her to know that I love her blog because it's "real". It's not high brow, hoity toity (I have no idea how to spell that!) out of reach design that most people could never afford. I honestly didn't expect to get a response.
But I did! She sent me the loveliest e-mail thanking me for my words and encouraging me with my new adventure. Not only that, she added my blog address to her list of favorite blog sites! So now everyone who goes to her blog can click on thekramerangle and end up looking at my new blog!
Isn't that amazing? How sweet is she? People are so good!
Thank you Rhoda!
