Caring Is Sharing

20 December 2009. Sunday. When I started blogging roughly a year ago, I never anticipated to meet great people along the way. I never thought I’ll form a special bond with these individuals and become good friends. And then it happens..

From merely just bloggers commenting in each other’s post, we started to chat. We make it a point to at least chat and keep each other updated at least every other day if we can’t do it daily. I somehow know that we both can click. Doesn’t matter that we are miles apart.. we just CLICK-ed.

I know she is for keeps when our friendship revolves around money and it survives. You know how people are always there for freebies and somehow disappears when you are in need? Well, I was not in need but what happened was, she has advertisers buying ad space in her blog. What I normally encounter is, people doesn’t always share wealth easily with others. But she is an exception. She asked me if I am keen to let the advertiser buy my ad space and without hesitating I agreed. Yes, the advertiser has purchased my ad space and I am handsomely rewarded by them. I even got paid higher than what she got due to my higher PR.

That just proves how noble she is. She cares and she shares. She is selfless as to not keep it to herself but shares the opportunity with me. I know not many others will do it but she does and I am so grateful to her for that. I just can’t thank her enough. If you are wondering who I am talking about, she is none other than Claire of Caring Is Not Only Sharing. A wonderful mother to three great kids and a cheerful, caring and crazy friend indeed :D
