Despite the fact that I've never personally met most of the people in my blogroll, I've seen and experienced online just how friendly, supportive, and caring you guys can be. Sure, you or I could be ax murderers in real life. (Okay, that was a joke. Can't be too careful with words nowadays, doesn't that suck?) But the goodwill resulting from the words you type, along with the good vibes they convey, are sigh-ingly, breathlessly indescribable.
Words on a web page can make us think, make us sympathize, make us feel sad, or make us feel good. I've felt all these things at one time or another when I read your blogs. But one thing's for sure, and believe you me, you guys bolster my morale in the most unexpected (but never unwelcome) ways.
The widget king himself (and surfer extraordinaire) Penfold made me laugh with this not-fugly certificate he created. So thanks, Marc -- both for the laughter and the reassurance that my blog ain't fugly. I'm sure you do DaddyPapersurfer and the Terrible Goddess proud (reluctant they may be to openly admit to such a thing). :-D
Sloppy kisses and indecently tight hugs to all of you, whether you like them or not.
