Love is in the air

Everywhere I look around

Love is in the air

Every sight and every sound

My husband took this picture.

Ah yes, it’s all round love today.

Here’s why:

I love lovelinks.

I love what lovelinks has done for smaller blogs – blogs get read, friendships are made, communities are built.

I love that the recent friendly competition at lovelinks for the big prize of a month-long text link at The Bloggess had such wonderful response, and NO ONE was catty at all.

I love that when Erica called out for prizes for the other lovelinkers who did not get into the top 3, so many responded quickly and generously.

I love that Erica trusted me as a friend and blogger to invite me to be a judge for this friendly competition.

I love that I got to read so many great posts because of that.

I love that I got to write about my favorite linked post over at free fringes today.

So, hop on over and see who I voted for!

I assure you, she did not even have to bribe me or kiss my butt.

It’s all love.

  • October 13, 2011 Ado

    You’re right – it was strangely not catty at all. However I’m no longer speaking to you because I came in second.
    HAHAHA! (-:
    It’s been a great contest – friendly and fun, and you’re right – I feel like we’ve forged a little community.

    Thank you so much, again, for picking me. It makes the complete and utter mortification I experienced so worth it!

    I love how you pointed out that this was such a friendly competition. No Baby Glare Off drama whatsoever. And I’m also so happy to have discovered new blogs written by such talented, funny people.

    I hope Erica continues to take Lovelinks to the next level, and we can all say we knew her when!

    (I love that I can say that I knew you “when” too!)

    I had to come back and tell you that I found MamaMash’s blog yesterday – she left one of the funniest comments I ever read on Kim’s blog (Inner Chick) that I HAD to go visit! Thanks!

    I am very very late to this party, but first that quote at the top is one of my favorites, I was actually just looking at it again and deciding if I wanted to make it my email signature quote again..and here it is.

    second, I also adore lovelinks. I met Erica early on and just really like her. What she is doing for the blogging community is amazing. She picked a fantastic judge in you.
