Sisterhood?

I find myself telling my IRL friends, folks and Erik more times than not about a friend of mine that I met through blogging.  Its not always a person I talk to on the phone but someone I have connected with because of a commonality through our lives or just a simple connection that happens when you leave a comment on a blog and take the time to get to know another person.  I know you know what I’m talking about!

I got a notebook earlier in the year when I started taking blogging seriously and one of the pages started off with 1 blog friend I made and I loved her so much that I wanted her actual mailing address so I could send her snail mail and exchanged phone numbers and email all time with each other.  My notebook has started to grow with addresses of people that I really feel like are my FRIENDS!  *Thanks ya’ll*

I was thinking about starting a Facebook page that we could all join.  Its hard to spread the word to all of our friends that we’ve connected with by just leaving a comment on one blog at a time.  I thought that this page would be a sisterhood themed page to simply “Like”…. yeah, I know—yet another thing to “Like” and I also know that many people aren’t using facebook nearly as much because of the crazy changes they keep making but go with me here……

I envision a page that we all ‘like’… you can make a post letting people know if you need help… lets say you are doing your first give away (hint hint.. click HERE to enter) and want to spread the word or maybe you have a question to ask about blogging and need a quick response?  Maybe you have just found this awesome link or blog that you want everyone to check out?  This might be a good spot for us to all link together?  I figure this is a perfect place for all my gal pals to link together and introduce new ones too!

Is this already being done or is this something you think you would ‘like’ and use?  I’m just curious b/c I started brainstorming with a few bloggers about it and got good feed back but wanted to just ask everyone and see what you thought?  I found a picture and threw some words on it—nothing official, but let me know your thoughts… on the idea, any suggestions you might have or if this is silly… it won’t hurt my feelings.  I just figure, why not have a place in space where we can all meet up?

This is a fabulous idea!

I belong to a similar FB group that consists of local bloggers.

I'd love to join your group!

Isn't it amazing how blogging leads to real friendships? When I first started blogging, I thought of people whose blogs I read as "this girl whose blog I read..." and now I just skip it and say "my friend..."

There are groups sort of like that- but I think there can always be more! :)

I don't know what I would do without you as my friend! And I have blogging to thank for that!!! I would definately join and "like" your page!!

Thank you SOOO much for linking my blog's first give away. Not sure where all my followers went. I've been a bad blog friend lately I guess :(.

Bridget said...

Ooooh, I would love to do that. I email blog friends outside of their blogs, but have never met or exchanged telephone numbers with any. I think it would be so much fun!

Ali said...

I think it is a fantastic idea!! I would definitely be interested

Cherished Bliss said...

You Know I'd be there ; ) I think its a fantastic idea! It's so nice to share thoughts and ideas with other people who blog. Non bloggers just don't get it sometimes! : ) Plus I'm always up for meeting new people!

sarajo said...

Oh yay! Amber was telling me you and her were talking about doing something like this. (I just exchanged digits with Amber this week =)

I would LOVE something like this! I think it's a great idea.

Impulsive Addict said...

Well, I love the idea but since I blog incognito (and I don't want M's family to find out about my blog), I would need to follow you from my IA Facebook account and I'm not sure if I can "like" another Facebook page from there. But I will certainly try! If not, keep me in the loop! You know how I love my bloggy friends! =)

Wonderful idea! I love the concept of friends having a common place to connect and everyone helping each other out. I would sign up or like for sure!

becca said...

i love this idea and would totally be in

Sarah Kate said...

I'd need to create a facebook page for my blog, but I'd be in! (I don't want my personal facebook account associated with my blog. Most of my IRL friends don't know that I'd blog and I'd like to keep it that way!) ;o)

S. Greiner said...

Love it! I really enjoy my blog facebook page and don't do enough with it...I think this is a great concept as well!!!

You're so smart!

Emmy said...

Yes, I don't have a FB page for my blog yet either- have one for my photography and then twitter of course but this would be kind of fun.

Date Girl said...

I would participate in something like that. Like IA, I'd have to do it from my DateGirl account but I'm all for it.

I tell Match all the time about, "my friend" this, and then he'll say, "who?" and I'll have to explain that it's a blog friend that I don't actually know IRL. Lol! He thinks I'm silly but my bloggy friends mean the world to me!
