Sing it with me: It's a small world after all ---

Blogging has expanded my worlds, er, world in ways I never expected. I started blogging as inexpensive therapy. As I surfed through other blogs, I developed networks of acquaintances and (dare I say it?) new friends. One of the great things about blogging and reading blogs is the networking. I've discovered so many people with whom I share so much.
Other parents of teens.
Other parents of college kids.
Working moms with many different experiences.
Parents of children with autism and Asperger's. (Too many to link!)
Other teachers.
Other gardeners.
Other coffee lovers.
Other Green Bay Packer fans (Okay, maybe not, but I know they're out there!)
Other women of my age (and not) with the same sense of humor. (Again, too many to link, snicker)

I took a leap, despite my relatively low readership, and added BlogHer ads. This network has the added advantage of seeing links to other enjoyable blog posts and discovering more favorites.
Well, a few days ago, I got an email from a favorite local coffee drive-through kiosk. Upon seeing my post mentioning their lovely beverages, they offered me a sweatshirt for the positive word-of-mouth PR. Word of keyboard? Well, customer relations. I will wear it with pride! My coffee-fiend friends will be jealous.
Today I received more good news. My blog blast post about our LoveSac Rocker and its wonderfully funny warning tag won honorable mention from the Parent Bloggers Network. Fun! Now I like the rocker even more.

Well, I'm a Packers fan (along with a Browns fan).. so now that spot is filled.

I'm sure you're younger than I, but I'm also:

(former) teacher
coffee lover

I have a quirky sense of humor.. but I'm never certain any gets my jokes.

I love how the internet has opened up the world to us, allowing us to meet so many great poeple! A few months ago I made a new online friend and took the long way around to do so. I followed a link from someone in California to someone here in Florida. Their link led me to my new friend who is not only local, but one of her children even goes to the same school as my children. Small, small world!

And I think that is so awesome that your favorite coffee shop offered you a sweatshirt!
