Why We Rock

Bloggers.

They're everywhere.

Each one of them is awesome (including me).

They blog about their feelings.

Their hopes.

Their dreams.

Their fears.

We all stand behind one another. We are a group of people who would do anything for one another. Even for those across the pond.

So to my newly found friends out there. I heart you. For those who are super new to this blog I want to share a few of my favorite peeps (and reasons why) so you can stop by and see the awesome.

Random Reasons to Love My Followers:

Something vs. Something: Janet Johnson (she rocks! Her games are freaking fantastic! Stop by for her post in lieu of president's day! President vs. President)
Fun Zone: Colene Murphy (always something to get me laughing)
