I have for some time wanted to talk about my special group of blog friends, those first bloggers who encouraged me, kept me going, taught me the joys of blogging. Last Monday a post about Indigo Bunting grew from a conversation over drinks, and then of course I hit on it – a series, a #MicroblogMondays post for each of them as a present to myself.
They deserve it – they really are that important, and even though few of them blog much any more, we are all (over on another well-known site that you probably frequent too) regularly treated to brief lines or comments that remind us why we love each other.
My first ever blog was about people I knew. Blogging about others – and with a word or sentence limit – is therefore a fine tradition, and one I think I shall extend to my first blogging friends, as well as to those bloggers I’ve met subsequently. After all, if you meet someone amazing, whether it is in real life, or on the internet, aren’t they worth celebrating?
So watch this space.
