The power of schmooze
Scrungy's Creator, Dorothy has given me the coveted Schmooze Award. Dorothy is Paula's (BassetKnitter) mother, and Paula was one of my first online friends. Meeting Dorothy was a natural, and being her friend is a joy.
As it goes, schmoozing is the natural ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.” Good schmoozers effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship."
I'm going to name a few of the friends I've made since Tea Leaves was born in 2004. These are only a few of the amazing women who prove that friendship has no borders. Namaste to all!
