I am honored to be part of the Social Fabric! Happy 1/2 Birthday #SoFab #cbias!


Social Fabric celebrates it’s 1/2 birthday on 11/11/11 and I have created my own 11 to say Happy Birthday to this fab group! I created a Glass Block Light that reads “Social Fabric Members Are Gathered Together With Thankful Hearts”. I think this describes Social Fabric perfectly. I don’t know if you have ever heard of Social Fabric or Collective Bias before but I am a part of it. And I am thrilled to be! It is a group of bloggers who work together to spread the word about fabulous brands and products. You have seen several posts on my blog that are part of Collective Bias. Some of them include Clear American Water, Smarties, Hillshire Farm Gourmet Creations Sausage. All of these are made possible by being a member of this wonderful group. The bloggers I have met there are amazing!

They help each other socially, ethically, virtually and even physically. There was a campaign recently where members got to “Boo” another member by sending them a special Halloween care package. There was another campaign where members created gift baskets for heroes in their community.

That is what I am a part of and it has changed my life for the better. I hadn’t realized just how much until I sat down to create this post. But it has. Being a thread in this Social Fabric has enriched, not only my blog, by my own personal life as well. It has allowed me to make new friends online and to grow. It has taught me that helping each other is exactly what we, as bloggers are all about. I love you Social Fabric and the Collective Bias that created you. I love everything you stand for. And I love where you are taking me as a blogger. And I am thankful to be a thread in your social fabric. Thank you and Happy 1/2 Birthday!
