There are many people and bloggers out there ALSO celebrating their “Blogiversary” in October 2007 .. and most will hopefully be over at Liz Strauss’ http://Successful-Blog.com chatting on an all-day Open-Mike comment day!
An Ode To Liz Strauss
If you don’t know who Liz Strauss is, and you blog .. then you are blogging in all of the wrong places! Liz has always been one of my favorite bloggers on the internet. When it was “cool” to just delete spam comments in one’s blog .. she would talk to these spammers and get a conversation going! Soon, you might find that people aren’t all spammers, and some just didn’t know how to be socially active around the ‘net! Mind you, there are times.
Last year, in my Year-1 Annual review of my network .. I published a few poems that I wrote to describe her blog in 25 words or less. Today – a year later – they still apply.

I use it to track all my needs

You too can witness
Why Liz is on my Daily Reads!
SOBCon ‘07 is now a part of blogging history, but Liz and a few friends really stepped up and made it a successful event in Chicago, last May 2007. There was about 15 speakers for the event and reading all the reviews about it, everybody had lots of fun! I wanted to go but couldn’t really afford the time to drive down there, or the conference fees. When I mentioned this in passing, Liz offered to make it an easy choice for me .. to drive down there and cover the cost of the fees for me .. and I really *really appreciated that, but still couldn’t find the time to leave.
Needless to say, I hope to see everybody down there for SOBcon Event 2008.
PS: her motto is: You are only a stranger once .. it’s true!
PPSS: Did you know that I am Liz’s Favorite? Yes. I am the ‘teacher’s pet’ if there was one .. as evidenced by the following:
1) I am NUMBER ONE and at the TOP of her S.O.B. list! WooHoo! (aw, don’t be jealous)
2) She acknowledges that I once asked her to fix her feed for her comments, because “half the show is in the comments” and seemed to really like that concept, when engaging with individuals in conversation in the comments!
And that’s why I’ll be over at the party all day today!
But, in case you have a few minutes or hours of time .. feel free to jump in and say hello. If you want to read what other people think of Liz Strauss, you should get the idea by post #50! Or, by reading the following recent posts on her blog:
