Getting to Know Us - Getting to Know all About Us....


I thought last night how wonderful a group of people we have round these here blogging lands. How supportive we are of each other. How we make each other laugh, cry, think, believe, join in, and et - cet-era et cetera et cetera!

So, on Saturdays I'd like to have a "getting to know us" post. And of course, anyone who wants to join in can. It's just a way of expanding just a little further/farther from blog to blog. Some of us visit all the same places, and some do not. (If right now you are reading this and thinking, "I hope she doesn't mention me, I like staying in my quiet corner of the blog world without any fingers pointing my way "- please let me know in the comments or email me!)


So my first Getting To Know Us starts off with Debbie at Suburb Sanity. Shes "a 46 year old married mom to 17 year old boy/girl twins as well as 15 and 11 year old sons. I love blogging about the crazy things in my life...and yours."
But Debbie is of course more than that. She's funny and ironic and mischievous, and though she'll go "pah, stop it..." when I say this, but she's also a nice person - warm and witty and kind. Debbie and I think we may have some of the same distant Kin....running around in bare-feet saying wise but awkward things while keeping downwind from the outhouse.
But, go by yourself if you haven't already, say a big "howdy do" to Debbie, and get to know her better.


Ta ta for now, everyone! Muwah! Have a wonderful Sat'dy ...

I agree with Lisa: great idea! And I first read Debbie a couple weeks ago. She's got great posts, and quite the following!

Love her blog! Happy Sat'dy to you too, Mz. Author. :)

Debbie said...

Look at me - all lounging around on your blog over here. No wonder I'm not getting anything done at my place!
You are so sweet to feature me! And say such wonderful things about me. You know I am biting my lip to not say "stop it" but it is very nice:)

LOL! Downwind? Surely not. You and Debbie are much too smart to come from that kind of stock!

Thanks for pointing me in Debbie's direction. I'm not sure if it's just her name, but she's simply delightful. Maybe you could do a blog on all the wonderful Debbies/Debs/Debras in your blogging world? I'd be happy to go first, I mean second! ;-)

What a great idea. It's fun to meet new virtual friends.

This is a fabulous idea, Ms. Kat! I love this idea. I will go visit Debbie as soon as I finish here.

Also, I read your short story at Sotto Voce. It was wonderful, and I was left with all kinds of questions and concerns for Beth when I was done. And I like that, when stories are realistic in that way, and nothing is easily solvable, because that's so very Life. I voted for it to be included in some type of analogy or something they're putting together. I give it 2 thumbs up, WAY up. Gooo Kat!

Well you know I LOVE Deb!
I think this is such a great idea. I notice so many of us all read the same blogs. I guess we need to start stetching our wings but at the same time I dont want to get to far from the nest, you all become my "comfort zone" : )
