Talented Friends Save the Day – Gratitude Project Day 6

Today, I’d have to say the thing that I’m most grateful for is my friend Angie.  You see, Angie and I have never met in real life.  We will probably never meet in real life unless one of us strikes it rich and takes an exotic vacation to where the other one lives.  (However, I live in British Columbia, which is easily one of the most beautiful places in the world.  She should definitely come here.)

Right now, Angie is the subject of my gratitude.  You see, years ago, I used to dabble in web design.  I did hand coding before CSS was even around.  I mean, we’re talking old school.  I also used to smoke like a freight train, particularly when I was doing anything web oriented.  Getting things to validate perfectly through the W3C compliance checker was irritating, and on days that I was doing heavy coding, I was also doing some heavy smoking.

I quit smoking three years ago.

I decided that I wanted another domain to reflect who I am and what I’m doing with my life now.  I thought about installing Word Press and doing the coding for it.  And within ten minutes, I was annoyed and wanted a cigarette.

This is where Angie comes in.  Angie is a super talented creator of blogging websites.  She does a great job of customizing them to look the way you want, and it’s at a very reasonable price: it cost less to get Angie to take care of my site for me than it would have cost for me to buy a carton of cigarettes.  And when you figure that buying one carton would have led to buying another… it was definitely a steal.

If I didn’t have such a talented friend to help me out, I’d probably be a lot worse off.  So, thank you, Angie.  Today I am very grateful for your assistance because it means that I don’t smell like an ash tray.
