Sitting on the edge of the world, ma

So there I was, sitting on the edge of the world, surrounded by people I love ...
... and thinking about ...

... blogging.

When I started my blog, back in Jan 2006, I wasn't sure what I expected to come from it or what I hoped for.

I know what I didn't expect though.

I wasn't looking to form new relationships,
to forge new bonds,
to make new friends.

But just look at what's happened!

I posted recently about the wonderful bloggers I've met in the last 18 months or so who have made the transition from Blog Life into my Real Life.

And this here Minx is truly the Cornish cream of the crop.

It's not just Minx and Debi - fellow writers and bloggers - any more.

It's our families,
our trajectories,
our very LIVES which have inextricably entwined to the mutual enrichment of us all.

What a gift.

What an utterly unanticipated blessing!
Thank you, blogosphere.

That is just so cool - so wonderful - and you can keep adding to the list - I plan to be there soon! ;-)

Jeez, I'll never get rid of her now!

Nowhere like Cornwall...it's the loveliest of places to share with your bestest friends.
Have a drink for me in the Sloop!

Marie said...

Glad you're having a good time. It looks lovely.

Minx said...

We would do, Jan, but you can't get anywhere near The Sloop in the summer and anyway, Debi is sleeping off yet another pasty. She won't be moving for a while!

Thats very nice...

Marie said...

I've nominated you for an award, Debi. Check my blog for details if you can.

Minx said...

She can't hear you, Marie. She in Dartmoor Prison. They finally caught up with her.
Ah well, Pimms anyone?

mutleythedog said...

I have also been to prison Ms Alper, I trust you behaved yourself...

Minx said...

Is you come back to us yet, Alper?

Cailleach said...

Maybe she's busy prepping for back-to-school... cooeee Debi!

Absolute Vanilla (and Atyllah) said...

Minx, what did you do with her - come on, 'fess up. She's been missing for weeks now.

Oh well, I suppose we can always start another party. Champagne anyone? Beer?

Minx said...

Did you know she calls me Minx in real life, so do her lovely family. Mine look on with bemused smiles and then go and find something else to do while we talk, and talk, and talk, and talk......

Cailleach said...

Well, both of you do have that effect on people - I know!

Pass the Pimms please...

Debi said...

I'm lurking - but sucked up into Real Life stuff at mo.

See y'all v soon. xxx

Cailleach said...

No worries Debi - hope to hear from you soon!
