I have had an affair with blogging since 2005 and have come up with so many reasons to continue our affair. But there are even more...
1. Yesterday, one of our RAPTORites could me how it was cheaper to fly into Atlantic City versus Newark , Philly, etc (he just came back from Cape May) and Geoff, my very brilliant husband started thinking about all the Skymiles he has accumulated. I checked it out online last night, and I will now be flying into Atlantic City,
and guess how much it will cost, using Geoff's Skymiles....
I come from a long line of bargain hunters, and this one will be going down in the books.
2. The whole reason I am going to Cape May is because of blogging. I started writing my blog in October 2005 and no one outside my family was reading it.
Then a sweet, wise woman named Laura started commenting. And I started commenting on hers. Then I investigated her Blog Roll. And cyber-met Lynne, Mary, Pam, Delia, Tom, Liza and many more. I met IRL (in real life) Bill, Julie, Kathi and Trixie.
And in just under a month, a bunch of us are going to Cape May to party like it's 1999.
3. Blogging led me to RAPTOR. I found Sharon (Birdchick) through someone's blog (I can't remember how I got there) and through one of her links, I found RAPTOR, Inc. and now I have the coolest job in the world.
4. But most of all, I have an outlet to bitch about all the stupid people in the world, to rave about my kids and husband, to crow about my own accomplishments, and to share what I think is beautiful in the world.
