You know how books always have acknowledgments, sometimes at the end? Well, my blog isn’t quite an island and since today is my blogoversary which is kind of like having a birthday, I figure I can invoke the ancient birthday rule of doing whatever the hell I want and thank some people for being awesome.
Shanyn – you are a voice of reason. Thank you for being on g-chat to bounce ideas and opinions off of you, and for listening when I need the ear. It’s appreciated more than you know.
Jamie – many awesome g-chats and real life hilarity -like when your bag got stuck in the subway doors (remember that, Shanyn?). I literally cannot wait to hang out again. Thanks for not being awkward, looking like your twitter picture, and just plain not being a weirdo.
Allison – I would probably never have picked up some of my favorite books if not for you. To my favorite book pusher — thanks for being in my life.
Liz – We go way back to the halcyon days of goodreads. I’m glad to know you and see how much your blog has expanded over the last year or so. You rock.
Pam – You are literally my favorite twitizen. It takes courage to be so outspoken. Thanks for inspiring me to be a braver person.
Carla – If I had to choose my favorite person with a British accent, I would choose you. I’m so glad I got to meet you at BEA. You are wonderful and candid in real life. I’m glad to call you a friend.
Kristi, FYA, Book Smugglers – You are my trifecta of blogging idols. For being such huge people in the blogging community – you are all never condescending or snobby and I appreciate that. Thanks for giving me something to aspire to.
Katie – You designed the perfect banner, made me laugh pretty hard at BBC. Thanks so much.
Lindsay – Your emails crack me up. ‘How does a person who is in the prenatal stage read?’ ha ha ha
Ginger – Although I never participate, my iPod horizons are expanding because of Tune In Tuesday, so thank you for exposing me to some awesome music.
Finally to my readers – I would literally not be blogging if not for you, because really who wants to talk to an empty room. So thank you for filling up my empty room. Thank you for agreeing with me, disagreeing with me, arguing with me. All of it. Thank you. Especially to Christina T and Lena, your comments literally make my day.
If I missed you by name, I’m super sorry, just know it’s around 6:30 a.m. as I type this so, I’m not exactly Einstein at this point in the day.
