What's With People?

For two days on the trot now,
I have been subjected to people on my doorstep because of this here blog.

I've been the victim of yet another facet to this business
- the business of putting it out there on the world wide web.

When I began writing my rubbish in this space,
I didn't anticipate that I would fall prey to this kind of response
- but I guess it's the risk you take when you click 'publish'.

Now I'm paying the price.

I like to call them not 'trolls',
but 'skags'  - Super Kind And Generous Souls.

Two ridiculously generous, completely unexpected and thoughtful parcels in two days
- from two amazing women that I have met and befriended out here in cyberspace.

The trauma of it all.

On Monday, Jane of Life On Planet Baby  surprised me with a beautiful parcel filled with clothing
handed down from her gorgeous India to my Missi and a lovely handmade piece too.

Julie from Mama Of 2 Boys then continued to floor me when I received yet another parcel today.
Hers bearing a selection of her beautiful creations
- handmade with my children (and Irish heritage) in mind.

I'm delighted to share that both of these fabulous bloggers have recently
taken the leap and started their own businesses.
I'm embarrassed to share that both their sites are bookmarked on my computer 
and were awaiting that moment in time when I could peruse and purchase without distraction.

Jane's Etsy shop 'Planet Joy' can be found here

Julie's Made It venture 'Button Tots' can be found here.

The mushy tears of gratitude and disbelief can be found here  - on my cheeks.
As I responded to Jane yesterday - people like her and Julie make me want to be a better person.

Thank you beautiful Skags - from the bottom of my heart.
Have you been targeted by Skags of the blogosphere too?
Shar xx

Aw, I love this. When I started reading I was afraid it would be a story of trolls and I thought, "Nooo!!" But thankfully it turned out to be the opposite. There are a lot of beautiful souls in the world. And they have a way of finding other beautiful souls to surprise now and then. x

Kate Sins said...

Ooooh, how lovely people are! I thought this was going to be a frightening tale... but yay for the wonderful people on the interwebs! xx

See there truly are lovely people out there.
I do believe you get back what you give out, and you always give out such lovely warm vibes Shar, it's inevitable.

Mama of 2 boys said...

Ohhh excellent they arrived! And my absolute pleasure, it gave me great joy and happiness to pop those in the post to you, for your beautiful babes :)
I also like to think only of the positive side of this blogging world... and all the beautiful people in it. So nice to extend the hand of friendship across the miles too xoxo

Oh Shar, you darling girl. I missed this post, if you can believe it. I was getting quite indignant for you after the first few lines, wondering who'd been pestering you. And then I read on. I'm so delighted you enjoyed your surprise. And thanks for the lovely mention. You have a huge heart. As does Jules. J x
