THE CIRCLE | A LINK-UP.

the circle

On Friday, I not-so-cleverly mentioned the fact that I was thinking of creating a link-up. At the time, creating really meant I have to think of a name and fast! 

But I came up with a name on Sunday night (talk about last-minute) and thus, The Circle was born (insert oohs and aahs here). The point of The Circle is to create a place for bloggers to get to know one another just a little bit better and to make new friends, too. And as C.S. Lewis put it, I want more bloggers to have this feeling:

 "Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: 'What! You too? I thought I was the only one.'"

I think we can all agree that the blogging community is amazing. Although, when I first started blogging, I didn't think that at all. I thought I was alone and just a little fish in a big blogworld. But now that I know how amazing this blogworld is (no worries, I'm still a little fish), I want others to know and have a slice of this blogging community, too. Hence, The Circle. Because as we all know, a circle is round, it has no end, and that's how long I want to be your friend. 

But before I get ahead of myself and get a children's song stuck in your head, here are the deets on The Circle. A play on a knitting circle, this monthly link-up is going to be a place for bloggers to share and write on a fun, light-hearted (or possibly heavy-hearted) topic. Except, instead of knitting together, we'll just be sharing our lives with each other and pretending to share our cookies and yarn, too (is that what knitters do?). Anyway, each month I'll partner up with a lovely co-host and we'll create a topic to write on and for you to write on as well. Then, you'll link up your post, share your blog with others, and get to know other bloggers--new and old ones alike!

As far as topics go, well, you're just going to have to come back on Wednesday (the 26th) to find out what this month's theme is. I already have a great co-host lined up and we're both super excited to share our posts. And I couldn't have asked for a better friend to kick this off with!

p.s. The Circle is also a great chance for bloggers to take a break from coming up with posts on their own--I mean, I'm not the only one who gets writer's block, am I?
