Happy New Year

What a year 05 was. I won't reflect on it because it's in the past, where it belongs. Now and then I might sniffle about my deceased father, but it's time to move on and move forward.

Two Thousand and five moved out about as dramatically as it hit last year. And as dramatic as it was through the year. I am so glad it's over.

There are only two years I can say I abosofuckinglutely will never ever ever want to relive again and those years are 1996 and 2005. YAY! They are gone, they are past, let's move on.

I like to maintain a positive attitude, and so my resolution this year is to try to always see the positive side of things.

I also resolve to start eating healthier and continue doing so, even if the stress gets high.

Now with those nasty resolutions out of the way. I want to give my utmost thanks and appreciation to my friends here in blogland. I would try to list each of you as others have, but I know I would over look someone, and I would not want to do anything that would cause hard feelings.

Those who have visited my blog and commented, Thank you.

Those who fly by my blogs and read but don't comment, thank you.

Those whose blogs I have visited, I have laughed with you and cried with you and felt with you.

Those whose blogs are sexual, thanks for always keeping me frustrated.

Those who enjoy my erotica, I am glad I have kept you frustrated. teehee

Those of you who have blogs that I have not visited, I am working on it, so many great blogs, so little time.

Those who read my blogs and email me, I appreciate this, it adds excitement to the beginning of a wonderful friendship.

Blogland has become a huge part of my life. I prefer this over chat. I know I will never have the popularity as some do, but I am not here for that. It's my way to vent. It has been very theraputic for me. It's the journal my counselor in 1996 told me I needed to keep. Okay! Okay! Okay! I am only nine years behind. So, I procrastinate. But I do NOT resolve to stop doing that. I'd just keep putting it off. *grin*

Not only have some of you become my friend, but as dear to me in my heart as family. I have felt many emotions as I have been taken in by the words in the blogs.

A man I was chatting with the other day told me that the AdultFriendFinder articles were better then blogging. I could not agree or disagree about the articles, because I have not visited them, but I did defend blogging. This is what I told him. (I edited out his comments, and put my comments into essay form.)

"My AdultFriendFinder blogging friends have helped pull me through some of my mourning with my fathers death. Blogging is my journal, an online journal. And many have been through the death of a parent and have been very comforting. AdultFriendFinder members are real people. People who care, who love, who believe, who show emotions, who help, who defend.

The bloggers of AdultFriendFinder are not just pervs...okay we all are. But recently one guy blogged about getting evicted at christmas time... and you know what the bloggers of AdultFriendFinder did? They pulled together and dontated money to him to keep him and his family in their home. And if he was lying about it all just for money then shame on him. But I believe he was in need. And he is truly thankful. AdultFriendFinder does not endorse it, but the people of the blogs care and love and want to help. And AdultFriendFinder didn't deny a post that gave info for us to go to donate. That was a first!

AdultFriendFinder bloggers are wonderful people. No one could ever tell me different. Yes, there are assholes, as there are everywhere. But for the most part, AdultFriendFinder bloggers are true honest to goodness people. I love them and I will defend them."

He was impressed that the folks who blog cared so much and would reach out to help someone in need. Will he become a blog visitor or a blogger? I don't know, I don't really care. What I care about is our blogging community and the people in it. I am proud to be an AdultFriendFinder blogger.

Happy New Year dear friends.

You said a lot of very, very true things Dusty...and you said it very well! I also have had many of the same experiences here in our little community we so lovingly call Blogland...and like you, I may never become a top blogger, but it doesn't matter....it is therapy in a lot of ways....and if people become friends and if people meet and fall in love..thru it.. that's a bonus.

Pulling together to help one of our own out in a time of dire need....or pulling together to defend another....we do it because we have grown together as a family and we do genuinely love and care for each other.

Last night I had so much fun online with 13 members of our Blogland family...so much fun. Each time it was midnight in whatever time zone we happened to be in... then we would all hoot and cheer and say Happy New Year. We had our own little New Years Eve party....and it was great.

I have to honestly say that last night was the first New Years Eve ever that I had so much fun.

Some people are so skeptical that bonds can be formed thru this venue...and with people all over the States and even across the ocean in other countries...and with people that we are likely to never actually meet face to face. But we do, it does happen and those bonds are real and they do bind us to one another. DaphneR did a post on this subject not to very long ago....and it's every bit true.

I value and appreciate you and everyone I have had the honor of knowing...and the priviledge to call FRIEND! Happy New Year to you and your family.

~~~ Just me, poppin to say HI! ~~

You said: It's the journal my counselor in 1996 told me I needed to keep.

A couple of weeks ago I was telling my counselor (who is not computer oriented) about the blogs and he asked me if I wouldn't mind printing them out for him. Whew...what a big job! But I copied them all into a Word document, printed it for him and now I have a record of them for myself, too.

He loved them, btw and said he learned almost as much about me from reading them as from knowing me. Hell, no wonder we all feel so close!

Aloha to 2006!

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

1hotwahine it is amazing. We open up our lives, our thoughts, our feelings, and our minds, wants and needs in our blogs. We learn so much about each other from this place. Just copied all my blogs into a word document. I'd hate to lose all thoughts and feelings I have exposed here. Agreed about Aloha to 2006.
