Virtual Hugs for a Friend!

“My girlfriend Sandra at “What Sandra Thinks” is going through some tough times and her friends here on WordPress want to show her some love. Thanks to Cyranny at “Cyranny’s Cove” who came up with some questions for those of us who are closest to her. I loved the idea and readily agreed. If you follow the link to Cyranny’s blog, you find links to the other posts for Sandra. I’m thinking of this as a great big virtual hug for my friend:”

How did you discover Sandra’s blog? And how long have you been following her?

I met Sandra as part of the A to Z Blog Challenge. She quickly became one of my favorite bloggers, in fact! I even posted about her in my reflections post.

What do you enjoy the most about “What Sandra Thinks”?

I love her writing style, her genre, and especially her voice. Both in her fiction and in her personal posts, I can feel the real person behind the screen. Not all writers can portray that voice through their fiction.

What do you like the most about Sandra herself?

She’s such a real person. Good and bad, as we all are, but real. And she has the bravery to put it all out there. So many people in this digital world only put out the good things about themselves and it makes it seem like we’re all perfect people. I don’t post on my blog when I run out of money, or eat too much food, or skip going to the gym. It’s a skewed perspective. But Sandra is honest. More honest than most of us.

What would be one of your favorite posts from Sandra?

I only started reading her blog recently, and I love Dear Diary. It was definitely one of my top three favorites!

What would you tell Sandra, if you two were talking over a cup of coffee?

I’m hoping that we can get a cup of coffee this summer! I’m going to be heading out her way for vacation… maybe we’ll see. 🙂

What do you wish for Sandra, in the future?

I want Sandra to see herself the way we see her. I want her to find her dream job. I want her kids to tell her how much she inspires them (because I’m sure she does, but kids don’t often tell their parents that). I want her to find happiness and joy. She deserves it!

So, virtual hugs for my virtual friend, Sandra! (And you should all check out her blog!)

  1. It is incredibly sweet of you to post this considering we just recently met. What a wonderful person you are. Thank you so much. ♥

    It amazes me how people say that they like how real I am… and open and honest… because I think I’m too much of those things. I worry I make it less enjoyable to read my blog!

    I’m still feeling a bit speechless from all of this… if I was hearing these posts in person, my face would be red and I’d be in tears (good tears).

    Thank you so much for this… and for being a friend. ♥

      1. It’s why I hate and refuse to use facebook. It seems like everyone on there has a perfect life. Damn, did it ever make me feel like crap when I used to go there! So I quit…

        I’m glad you can put up with me!
