I am Thankful

Part of my New Year organization involves a re-vamp of my blogroll. My previous one called for blogs to be divided into English blogs and American blogs. But how to classify the expat blogs by an Englishwoman living in Tennessee or by Paola in Seattle, what to do with Michael, an American who writes from Horsham? Then there's all the Englishwomen living in France . . . and so it goes. So I have just listed a few of the many writers I read. If I had any manners, I would introduce you to them. But you are not wallflowers, you can make their acquaintances, and follow their links to meet their friends.

Is imitation the sincerest form of flattery? I don't intend to imitate any of my favorites, but I do love the structure that "The Bookworm" gives to her blog by featuring every Monday the Simple Woman's Daybook, where she completes a litany of sentences. One of them is "I am thankful" . . . and in my case it can be completed, "I am thankful that I have a wonderful neighbor who cheerfully uses his snow plough to clear our driveway and front path."

Thanks so much for including Birds on a Wire on your blogroll! I see we're both TGB readers, so that must be the connection. I can't start my day without seeing what Ronnie has put up for us, can you?
The best thing about TGB may be that it provides a place for bloggers to connect. I'm so thankful for the many interesting writers I've met through that blog.
Thanks again. If you send me your email address, I'll put you on my mailing list for special posts. I promise not to share it with anyone.
