I've always thought I'd make a good editor

A couple of weeks ago a blogger buddy of mine sent me a copy of the first chapter of a book she is writing. How cool is that? I haven't had any time to actually read it yet but I'm looking forward to it. She sent it to a handful of people and is looking for honest feedback. I think it's awesome that she values my opinion enough to include me in such a vulnerable process. Three years ago my inbox would not have contained such a personal project from a virtual stranger. I heart blogging.

Oh, my gosh. I am blushing right now, really. :)

I heart blogging, too. I can't explain it, other than I just value the connections I've made.

*Definitely* let me know if I can ever return a favor for you someday!
