To the Best Blog Buddies Ever

By Eccenhilo-Carmen, the lady who made my day!

Hello all. How’re you doing on this fine Tuesday evening? I myself am having an especially good one and it’s all thanks to you wonderful people. You see I’ve reached yet another blogging milestone; first it was 100 posts, now it’s 100 followers! As such, I would like to take this opportunity to say 'go raibh míle, míle, míle maith agaibh'. (For those not familiar with my primary school level Irish I just wished thousands and thousands of good things upon you all, i.e. thank you so very, very much!)

Seriously folks, I’m both excited and humbled in equal measure. Excited by the fact that anybody actually cares enough to call in here, humbled by the amazingness of  those who do. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you lot really are the most creatively talented bunch.  Every time I see a new face pop up in my box there on the right I click to discover yet another land of whimsical wonder. Oh how I love blogging!

So I’ve been thinking about how to celebrate, and how to show my appreciation to you all for making this adventure even more worthwhile and fun. Ages ago I mentioned that I wanted to start showcasing my favourite blogs, yet I never really got round to doing it. Probably because there’s so many I love I didn’t know where to start. How could I chose from all that loveliness?!

Today, however, I’m going to begin with illustrator Eccenhilo-Carmen, my newest follower and friend! All the images you see below were taken from just one her arty blogs.  Aren’t they beautiful?  Click on her name for directions to more enchanting pieces, including some lovely children's illustration.

As I said, it’s humbling to know such talented folks are following my silly, silly space. I think from now on I’m going to make celebrating that talent a weekly feature. After all, I do spend a lot of time posting stuff I find elsewhere in webland- why not what’s at my own backdoor?  I’ll have to pick the pages completly at random, though, cause it’d take way longer than a week to decide on which of your blogs I love the most. You are all brilliant! And thanks so much again for making my blogging experience all the more wonderful!

I'm still waiting for the video of you doing a knees-up in O'Rourke's Bar - and pretending it's a jig.

Tell me to shut up, Roisin.
