"Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you..."
Once upon a time, in a land not so far away, there was a blogger who loved what she did. Writing, sharing, communicating with the world made her happy.
She had been writing poetry since she could write and loved each word the way the sun loves each tulip in spring. One day, she woke to a particularly good morning. The birds sang outside her window even though there was snow decorating the trees.
She felt an unexplainable feeling of joy, and since she loved those best, she was simply enjoying the day. Suddenly, out of the cobalt blue, a fairy appeared, and, not just any fairy, but The Fairy Hobmother. As far as she knew, this was an urban legend told by her blogger buddies, but, no, he had visited her blog.
"I had a look at your site and you obviously work hard on it, so I’d like to reward that hard work with a gift in the form of a $50 voucher for Amazon!" he said.
That day, the sunset was a particularly beautiful color, light pink and magenta, and she dreamt of fairies and a land where everything was possible!
So, yes, that blogger is me. I had heard of the Fairy Hobmother, read about him, and commented on blogs wherever I had seen him, but I never knew he truly existed until today. He is still a mystery, mind you, as it should be, because, really, without mystery, life would be really dull! I do know that his fairy overlords live in a magical kingdom at Appliances Online. I've visited. I thought it was pretty cool.
The Fairy Hobmother also told me that if any other bloggers comment on this post and leave a link to their blogs, he may soon be paying them a visit as well!
So, good luck to my fellow bloggers. May you get a visit from The Fairy Hobmother soon and may your dreams come true.
