Andrew Leon, Matthew MacNish, and Alex J. Cavanaugh are hosting the I Miss You Blogfest which is one of the coolest Alex has hosted in my opinion, one about the bloggers we really miss… and the ones we would really miss!
Here's their requirement:
"Do you have a couple blogger buddies who aren’t posting as often? Those
who’ve pulled back and seem absent from the blogging world? Do you have
blogger buddies you are grateful they are still around and would miss if
they vanished? Now is your chance to show your appreciation and
List one to three bloggers you really miss and one to
three bloggers you would miss if they stopped blogging. Then go leave a
comment on those blogs. Our blogger friends are special – time to let them know!
I couldn't agree more.
So here are some of my 'blogging buddies I would miss' picks: (I have a ton more, but we're only allowed between 1 and 3)
Corinne OFlynn had gone on a hiatus, and recently came back. I missed her posts, because through Triberr.com, I used to read her regularly -- always inspiring and informative. I've learned a lot from her blog. Don't think I ever told her I love her blog, but now I can say it -- I'm thrilled she's out of her hiatus, and back in circulation!
IndigoBunting is one of those people who should blog more often, because though she is a copyeditor, she has one cool writer's voice. I've been telling her that for the 5 years I've known her -- maybe I'll make an impression, in oh, I don't know, another 20 ? I hope she takes up fiction some day -- and in the meanwhile, I hope she never stops blogging!
Marian Allen is a friend who I've lost touch with for a bit -- I've had a bad blogging year, lost touch with a lot of good friends -- but she's a blogging buddy I'd dearly miss if she decided to unplug from the internet some day.
Now for the one blog buddy I totally miss:
Rick Mobbs became an inspiration with his art, and if you see the The Storybook Collaborative you'll know why. He has a busy life with a thriving family, a career on Hollywood sets, but every once in a while, I wish he would make an appearance, and this time, stay for good.
I wish I could write a post one mile long, but for now, this would have to do.
I would dearly miss all the folks who regularly show up and drop me a comment-- if they decide to ignore me -- because without readers, a blog doesn't exist. Yes, I believe that.
Thanks everyone, for showing up on this page, and thank you Andrew Leon, Matthew MacNish, and Alex J. Cavanaugh for hosting the I Miss You Blogfest!
