What I have loved about social media from the very beginning is the sense of comaraderie. I have never felt so welcome in a space as I have in the social media sphere. It’s been a blessing. That is why creating the #sofabcolor thread was so important to me. I wanted a chance to give back some of the love that has been bestowed on me. I am so appreciative of the response.

I love blogging, and I love bloggers, but for this post I need to highlight only five of my favorites. What a daunting, “Sophie’s Choice” kind of a task. When I sat down at the computer to write this post I realized that though I have many, many, many favored bloggers, I don’t get a chance to read a lot of blogs consistently.
