The Blogging Community Is Amazing


There are many people, who are not bloggers, who just don't "get" us. 
They don't understand the friendships with people we've never met, the support given and received, the tweeting/texting/emailing. . . 

Well for all of you who don't "get" the blogging community I'm hear to tell you that THIS is why it is so amazing.  On Saturday night a fellow blogger, Julee, lost her husband, Matt, in a tragic car accident.  The support for her that I have seen on blogs and twitter has been astounding. 

This is why I love this community.

I have read Julee's blog for many years.  I followed her journey to get pregnant with Preslee and was so happy for her and Matt when she announced it.  I've enjoyed reading since too.  Even though I don't "know" Julee in real life I feel like I do from reading her blog. 

I am so sad about what has happened.  It just isn't fair.  

It is so amazing to see the blogging community come together to support her and Preslee.

I'm honored to be a part of this community.  

Please do what you can to support Julee and Preslee during this difficult time. 

You can read about ways to help here, here and here (I'm sure there are other places too but this is what I've seen).
