You read the story elsewhere. We all seem to experience the same thing: we start a blog for multiple personal reasons such as keeping a journal of our lives, staying in touch with friends abroad (hello there in the Kootenays!!! I miss you), ...

but then someone leaves a comment and you are totally thrilled. You know some other people who have a blog and they refer once more to other blogs and out of curiosity you start reading some other blogs as well. And something touches you and you leave a comment on their blog as well. After a while you get the feeling that you start knowing some other people a little since you keep track of their daily adventures, rants, challenges, successes and since they keep track of yours. And when you write a new post, you don't only hope that your real life friends come by to have a look and if you're lucky even leave you a comment, but you also hope that your blogging friends will stop by as well.

Jenn in Holland is one of them and apparently she has the same experience with blogging. It inspired her to award us with a new award:

"It's my desire to hand some of that love and kindness back around to those who have been so very, very, very good to me in this bloggy world. My hope is that those who receive this award will pass it on to those who have been very, very, very good to them as well.It's a big kiss, of the chaste platonic kind, from me to you with the underlying 'thanks' message implied."

Thank you Jenn for this big bloggie kiss! And all of you in that bloglist on the right hand side....consider yourself bloggie kissed as well.

While I will gladly accept a virtual kiss from you Ellen, I would much rather prefer a HUGE hug in person!!

I am looking forward to seeing you in the near future when I come over there to visit. Have you and Jan decided yet as to a time that would be best?
I think we're all lucky to have made such interesting blog friendships while communicating with our non-blog friends and family. What a bonus! And a big, virtual Mwah! to you, too!
Doubly Mwah to you too :-)
