BYBS: 10 More Things I Like About You

This is a continuation of a previous BYBS posting that takes a more outward look than inward. Rather than blather about myself or how I see someone as being a blessing for me, I thought I would talk about things that I like about other bloggers/commenters/etc.

  • The one: who can be awfully determined, has a memory that would make an elephant blink, and and has a postive outlook that I envy.
  • Shay: who writes in the hopes of making a better world.
  • The Blue Panther: who came up with the idea for BYBS. I also admire his relentlessly positive attitude.
  • Sandy: I don't pretend to understand how she manages to visit so many sites and still remain so thoughtful. I also like the way that she can look at the world and see it a different, more beautiful way.
  • MsDemmie: who maintains a positive outlook on life in spite of some very trying times.
  • Paulie: whose eyes see beauty and who shares that vision with others.
  • Cybercelt: who shows that you can come at blogging and writing from very different perspectives.
  • Steve: I admire his willingness to share his thoughts with the rest of the world and to think about how that world responds to him.
  • NREL: an organization that is working towards a better world.
  • Roger Z., JRR, Greg B., Vernor and a host of other writers both living and kaput. They have the ability to share a dream or an idea that make the world a bit brighter.

That is a generous post. I like your attitude. And I thank you for your kind words. All the "blessings" bloggers enrich my perspective on just about everything. And I have to say: I'm always glad when you post because you make me think in new ways. So right back atcha!

I love writing and reading gratitude posts. I believe focusing on what’s good (and or ‘right’ with our lives) draws to ourselves and one another more of the same. I enjoyed your April post as much as this one (certainly relating to the coffee & caffeine … something I certainly relied on this morning), and (like you) I marvel at how Sandy manages all she does with such clarity and energy. Although I’m a relative ‘newbie’ at BYBS, I’m grateful for the opportunity to meet this interesting and eclectic group of bloggers who ‘acknowledge & share’ blessings weekly.
Hugs and blessings,

Wow! It's nice knowing I am being a blessing to others. . . Thank you! I do love sharing my part of the world and I am glad you appreciate my photos also. I was blessed the day I stumbled on Neo's blog and his BYB Sunday. I look forward to reading each persons weekly even if it takes me a bit to get there when I am busy with the rest of theworld.

This is a great post.

One of the things about blogging is that it can make me self-indulgent. One begins to think about himself and his blog only. So, this post comes like a breath of fresh air.

I completely agree with most of what you have said about the bloggers you have mentioned. I would also like to thank you for including me in that list.

Have a great week ahead.

echoing the thoughts on sandy ^^

thanks for the mention ^^
largely i feel that we all have much to learn from each other. and the more we share/discuss with others, the more we learn about the world and ourselves =)

also a good cheer to this particular blog's owner as well for his sense of humor, thoughtfulness, interesting posts & keeping blogging alive despite life & all the other distractions in between ;)

Wow, Whatever, you complimented me, I think. I do not know if my ego can handle it. LOL

You are a blessing with your no nonsense, cut to the chase attitude. I think the BYBS bloggers are a talented, diverse group. I hope we keep doing the BYBS for awhile. I would really miss it.
