I’m a Blogma Mama

– Posted in: Blogging, Bright Side of Life, Illustrated by Me

Okay, I’m going to allow myself to get all sorority-girl screamy for a minute because I got the BEST email this morning. Fadra Nally, who blogs at all.things.fadra, chose one of my posts for Blogmas 2013: My Top Favorite Posts. And just as icing, turns out my friend and drawing mentor, JC Little of The Animated Woman, was the one who nominated me.

Feelin’ the love, people. Feelin’ the love.

It’s funny. Sure, this was a nice thing to happen. But I was trying to figure out, “Why is this making me so happy?” I guess it’s just because I’ve been running into so many nasty, fake people on the internet lately. I realize that’s a naive, ridiculous statement to make about the internet, but after so many years putzing around this place, I sometimes feel like it’s such a struggle to find “my people.” When I do, they stick and stick hard. They’re funny, smart, sarcastic, kind, caring, tolerant, open-minded, discerning, and out-spoken. I love them. But sometimes I feel like we need a secret handshake.

But enough deep analysis of my current emotional state. Fadra has an amazing list of posts at her site. Be sure to check them out. And go see which of mine got picked!

{That was mean, right? But it’s one with illustrations, so really, how many could there be?}
