WordPress connects us with talented photographers and writers who inspire us. Through our blogs we discover amazing people from around the world. We make virtual friends on every continent and our lives are richer for it. In 2013 it was my privilege and pleasure to meet three of these friends in real life.

Lorri, a.k.a. Artsifrtsy @ the eff stop, and Allan Smorra @ Ohm Sweet Ohm have graciously agreed to kick off a progressive post party to celebrate beginning another year of blogging here at HonieBriggs.com. My gratitude for their friendship, well, it’s HUGE. They are incredible human beings. I should know, I’m an expert on identifying humans.



That’s why I’m inviting all of you humans to visit their blogs and join the fun by sharing the link to a post of your own about what keeps you coming back to HonieBriggs.com. Select posts will be featured here throughout the remainder of December.


Three bloggers who submit posts will be chosen for an in real life meet up with me in 2014.

So, here’s how it works. Visit The Eff Stop and Ohm Sweet Ohm. Be sure to tell them how awesome they are and share the link to your post in the comments section to keep the party going. Watch for your post to be featured on HonieBriggs.com. Good Luck! Thanks for reading. Now, let’s get this party started.

    Thank you for the opportunity to help celebrate your blogaversary (?). I had a lot of fun and have been in contact with some very nice people as a result.

    Here’s to 2014!

    Here’s to you Honie! Congrats on the anniversary and thanks for the opportunity to chime in and post about that experience. Someday I’ll have to buy you a sammich up north!

    1. Honie Briggs says:

      I will take you up on that, Lorri. By the way, I love the birds on the icicles photos you included. Here’s to another year of blogging!

        Thanks Steph, I shot those buggers from inside the house, through my century old wavy glass windows. They were thirsty. Here’s to the best year blogging yet!

  3. Hi there, just thought I’d stop by, having been encouraged by Lorri. What a neat idea – I hope you get to meet many more people from your blogging community!

    1. Honie Briggs says:

      We’ll see how many people come to the party. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. I’ve met 9 bloggers in real life. That just amazes me! The friendships I’ve forged online have been stronger than most of my real-life ones, too. Go figure.

    What a fabulous idea Honie. I will be interstate next week so will make sure I have my laptop with me. I don’t want to miss the party.

      Hey Helen,
      Safe travels. Stop by when you have time. 🙂

Go Ahead, Make My Day!
