It's the coolest thing to meet someone in person for the first time and feel like you're catching up with an old friend. My blog is still very important to me, so I just can't quit it.


  1. #15 this reminded me I think was a punk rocker with different colored hair!

  2. I love your matter of fact answers. It's so cool that you've met 5 bloggers! It really is amazing how blogging has led me (us) to some very good friends. I consider some of them my closest friends, despite not ever actually meeting in person! But we talk almost daily, so that counts, right? And I forgot about Growing Pains and Family Ties! I watched those two shows a lot when I was younger.

  3. I second Amber! I'm cracking up, especially at your celebrities question! And five bloggers!!! There are so many of you all I hope I get to meet one day! You guys were and still are my lifeline.
