Friendly Friday

Hi Friends of the Friendless. I hope you will enjoy these new friendless sites and leave an encouraging word or two for them.

The friendless site of the week is Danielle of Estranged Love.
I like her blog because:
  • it is refreshing to read a 19 yr old's perspective
  • that doesn't use the manga style
  • she is honest, introspective with a good sense of humor as well
  • I like her "Layers of Me" on August 15, 2005
  • I like the relaxing look of her blog
I wish Danielle would post more often.

Other sites submitted:
  • Brenda of Planet Brenda. Hey, she has more friends than me! I guess that proves that friendlessness is relative. Brenda is a humorous blogger with good accompanying photos.
  • Orfeo from Orfeo's Underworld is an Australian who mainly blogs about his deep appreciation for music.

Yes, that is me with my tuba!

Band members, do you have any pictures of you with your instrument? Go ahead, be creative. Then post it proudly on your blog with the caption "I am a member of the Friend of the Friendless band!" I will post it on my blog as well.

Anyone is free to join the band. Just leave a comment with your instrument of choice then go and visit. To find out more about the band and the origins of Friendly Fridays, go here and here.

Reminder, I need some sites to visit this week!

Unfortunately, I can't play or have a musical instrument. What if I take a picture of me putting a CD in my hi-fi system?

orfeo said...

Heeeeey.... How'd this happen?


Excuse me while I go check out the other two.

Carol said...

Hi All You Friendly People!!
Kenju, thanks for nominating someone!

Marti,I hope that it is an incentive to get a picture of yourself with your clarinet.

Pearl, Thanks for your nomination. I haven't forgotten that you are partial to the drums.

True Jersey Girl, I can't wait!!

Markus, Haven't you ever dreamed of playing an instrument?

Music Whore?
We could use a french horn!

Jean-Luc Picard,How about the Ressikan flute??

Orfeo, We are honored to have you visit! Do you want to sign up???

A reminder to everyone to look for more friendless sites-I am partial to those with < 5 comments a post and/or < 10 visitors a day.

I always wish I had learned to play an instrument. Maybe someday i will find the time and patience said...

Thanks for having my site featured. I will need to post a pic of me with my air guitar! ;-)

Dani_elle said...

Well unfortunately I don't play any instruments. But I posted a picture anyways!

Carol said...

I think Mike and Danielle are under the impression that band members have to actually be proficient at an instrument to be included!
Danielle, It is fun to finally be able to post a picture.
Brenda, Okay, I'm waiting.
