A Public Display of Affection to say Thank You to a dear friend...
Roger Mucci is a dear friend who I introduced to ActiveRain when he first started 'Shaken With a Twist"
While I have been just dipping my toes in the puddles, Roger has been truly dancing in the Rain and making big splashes!
I have really been wanting to get consistent and become a better blogger, so when I saw Karen Bernetti"s Post about her 30 day challenge and her invitation to join her, I thought what the heck - this could be my ticket to making this work.
I shared my goal with my friend Roger and asked him to kick my butt in gear! So now I get text messages from him that read BLOG OR FLOG YOU CHOOSE! LOL, just like him, no?
I choose to blog! Never did like pain!
So, I have been blogging away every day for the past 5 days. This officially makes my 5th post in a row. Woohoo! So last night after posting, I noticed I got some visits. And let me tell you, I get so I excited when I get a visit and a comment, so I was very excited about my 3 visits. Then I pop on over to Roger's blog to see what he wrote for the day and lo and behold he has another zillion comments on his posts.
And honestly, I want the same thing - And if everyone reading this is honest, they do too! So, I asked Rog, what are you doing? How are you doing this? And as a dear friend always does, he said let me help you. He went on to explain how he has gotten really involved in the Rain, how he spent a lot of time searching around to make good friends and that I just needed to put myself out there. He could teach a class on how to make friends in the social media world.
It is really too funny because I am shy and don't normally put myself out there in real life and I guess it carried over to social media life too! (Although, most people who know me would never say I was shy and that is because once you get to know me, you can't shut me up - The initial getting to know people and putting myself out there has never been good for me - I have to really force myself to meet new people and try different things)
Roger being Roger took complete charge- he calls me up and says take these names down, now go to my blog and find them and then subscribe to their blog, read them everyday and make comments, interact with them, make friends and oh yeah, make sure you tell them I sent you. He has soooooooooooooo many friends, I barely got through the list! Roger did not just stop at giving me some great advice - he went and wrote a post about me to introduce me to his friends. Naturally, in his fun and witty way! Isn't that just the sweetest thing!!!
That is who he is, kindness to his very soul!
Roger, you are a dear friend to many! Your kindness and generosity is endless! You truly bring joy to those you know! God has graced me with your friendship and I am very grateful!!!
I know today will be a rough day for you, I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers and your mom too! As you make your way through this day, just know you are loved!
