Meet my other friends Monday

Monday's are so much easier to deal with when I have a little help from my friends. Since I think I've got the greatest friends on earth I want to share them with everyone. Monday's are dedicated to the best bloggers I know, my pals. You could be next.

This weeks friend keeps me in stitches with her Comedy Plus. When Sandee isn't sharing a good joke she thrills you with her adventures on the high seas. Ok so maybe they aren't high sea adventures but her and her husband do spend a lot of time on their boat and she's shown us some wonderful sites. You might also enjoy her comment games or Wednesday's question. An all around fun blog with a fun author. We love Sandee and I know you will too. Duke says she's his favorite because she never fails to mention him in her comments here.

1) How long have you been blogging and what made you start?

I've been blogging since January 2006, and I think I started out of curiosity. I knew very little about blogging and it showed the first year or so. Then I met Empress Bee, and Sandy Bell and pretty soon I was visiting them and they were visiting me. Then I met more bloggers in their circle and those gals are still my blogging buddies. Many of my early blogger buddies I've met. That's the really cool thing about blogging, you can make plans to visit those folks that you so enjoy. 
2) What is one piece of advice you would give to a new blogger?

If you like a blog you'll eventually like the person that authors the blog. You become attached. I've seen lots of bloggers that post a post, you visit them and leave a comment, but they never visit you. If you want a following you need to reach out to those folks you like.
3) Do you have any hobbies or special talents?

Everyone that knows me, knows I don't have a crafty bone in my body. I do have a great hobby though. It's called boating. We boat year around on the California Delta. The picture that I sent Ann is a boat like ours, so don't think you're seeing our boat. We have a Sea Ray Sundancer.
4) Of course you love all the blogs you visit but share a link to one of those and tell us why we should check it out.

It's hard to just pick one blog, but since that's the question I'll choose Empress Bee of muffin53 part deux. She's a lovely southern belle that lost the love of her life the first part of this year to cancer. She promised her hubby that she would lose weight and as of this writing she's lost 70+ pounds. She's got a great sense of humor and you never know what she'll say next. She's an avid Carnival Cruise Lines cruiser and has so many cruises under her belt I lost count. I love her to pieces and she's one of the bloggers I've had the pleasure to meet.
5) What is the one things that totally makes you crazy?

Word verification and comment moderation both being used. If you're going to moderate comments then why would make us do word verification. It just doesn't make sense.
6) Give one random thought.

Will all of you be as happy as I am when this election is over? I thought so.

My only downfall is that I don't spend enough time on my laptop in general...just too busy! Sure am glad I got to know you though!!...:)JP

Sandee said...

Well that was fun. I sent a link to Empress Bee so she can visit too. Thanks for asking me to participate.

Sandee was the first blog I ever followed. Much luvs for her.

Empress Bee- much love and respect!
Followed Sarge for a long time before her though. Miss him bunches. I am now on the Bee Bandwagon to lose weight.

It was great meeting Sandy! If I had a boat right now I could float down the hill I live on! Hope things aren't too bad in your neck of the woods!

Helen said...

Hi Sandy,

I'm not a water person but I like boat and as for the election it really doesn't matter who will win they are all the same.
