Last year, at the beginning of the (first) lockdown, I decided to start a series of online weekend calls, to give people the chance to connect in a different way, here, in the Bloggosphere. To be absolutely honest, I was convinced that it would be a major flop, like many other ideas I had in the past.
The first weeks were rather quiet, but it started to build up, and we now have a little gang of regulars, and we meet (almost) every Friday at 6 PM (Eastern time).
Last Friday was our 40th meeting, and I was amazed that this idea has continued on for 10 months already! You Lovelies are awesome, and you have no idea how much our little chats have brought to my life. Not only have these meetings put a smile on my face, on days when I was less than jolly, but it has allowed me to get to know you all, on a more personal level. I can’t talk for you, but I know I made long distance friends I now really really care about, and long to meet again, week after week.
So here are the links to the blogs of my Fab Five little gang. Each of them is worth a visit, if you don’t know them already;
The Fabulous Trina, from It’s Good to Be Crazy Sometimes (You’re welcome, love ya!)
Hokey, from Texas Writer
Suzanne, from My Dang Blog
Simon, from Simon’s Space
Larry, from Eastelmhurst.a.go.go
And this week we had so very special visitors… I suspect I lured them in with the cheesy reason that our last Skypy Friday session was under the theme of my recent birthday. And I won’t appologize for playing with their feelings, because it was so great to have them aboard, for the first time on that special chat time. These two ladies deserve a little visit too… If you don’t know them, just click on their link, you won’t regret it!
Yinglan, from This is Another Story
Eleanor, from Persephone’s Playpen
If you’ve been thinking about joining in, on Skypy Fridays, please don’t hesitate next week. Or the one after that. I get that the timing is not optimal for everybody’s time zones, but shyness shouldn’t stop you from sharing a good time. We’re all very welcoming, and always happy to have a new guest.
I post the invitation on Fridays, a little after noon… And if you’d like to get an email reminder, just leave me a message in the comments. (or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org)
Long life to Skypy Fridays!
And thank you for making all of the past meetings so awesome!!
