Celebrating Friendship Day the Blog Jog Way

Today is Friendship Day, and what better way to celebrate than with a fun jog around the blogosphere. It’s good for the heart, and you don’t even have to deal with the heat or risk getting blisters.

Please introduce yourself — I always have room in my life for new friends. Even if you’re shy, I hope you will still take the time to leave a few words. Everyone who leaves a comment will be entered in a drawing to win a free download of one of my novels, winner’s choice. (You can see the blurbs for my novels on the right side bar.

After you’ve explored my site, jog on over to The Philly Collector at http://phillycollector.blogspot.com to see what they have to offer. (There you should find a link to the next blog on the jog.) If you get lost or end up at a blog with a broken link to the next stop, you can go back to the main Blog Jog Day Blog at http://blogjogday.blogspot.com and find a new link to jog from.

If you don’t know where to start exploring Bertram’s Blog, you can check out the index of all my posts: Archives.

Thank you for stopping by my site! I hope you have a fun jog and make lots of new friends.

    Thanks for inviting me in. Enjoy the day.

    Hi Pat

    I’ve lurked for over a year but never commented. I was drawn to your posts on grief having lost my husband in April 2010 to suicide. Although I wasn’t in love with him like you were/are with your soul-mate, I was interested in watching you go through the grieving process and its similarity to mine.

    I just thought this was a good opportunity to break the ice and say ‘hi’. Your blog has helped.


    • Pat Bertram Says:

      Katie, thank you for introducing yourself. It’s always nice to meet a blog reader and a sister in sorrow. Losing someone you’ve shared your life with is hard, but it must be doubly hard when it came from suicide rather than illness or an accident. I hope you’ve found peace.

    A copy of A Spark of Heavenly Fire to go along with my copy of Daughter Am I would be love-0-ly.

    Hi my friend,

    Hi Pat,

    Another fellow griever stopping by to say hello and try the Blog Jog to see if I can escape a little. I’m having a tough time lately but you know how that goes. Thanks for notifying me of the event today and enjoy the Jog.


    • Pat Bertram Says:

      Bob, I’m sorry you’re having a tough time lately. It comes and goes, and hopefully the times between the tears become longer. Stop by if you need to talk. I’m always willing to talk to another griever. It’s such an isolating experience, we need all the friends we can get.

    Good blog today, Pat.
    Happy Friendship Day!

  15. Joan K. Maze Says:

    I like your blog and would love to read any of your books. I also know grief as my youngest dasughter died six years ago.


  16. Bob Avey Says:

    Hello, Pat. Happy Friendship day and blog jogging and all that.

  17. J. Conrad Guest Says:

    Hi, Pat. Thanks for alerting me to this. Glad to be a part of your circle of writerly friends.

  18. David McGowan Says:

    Who said you can never have enough friends? He was right.
    Yes, I’ll jog on over to a few sites; always up for a tour.
    However, I also need to put down a few words. At this rate I’ll have my next novel finished when I’m 105.

  19. Joan K. Maze Says:

    105! That soon? Ever since I started increasing my promotional efforts, my writing time has shunk. I think I need a time manager.

    Friends are very important and the older I get, the more I realize that.


  20. Glenda A Bixler Says:

    Hi friend…I so admire your energy! Hope you, too, have a happy day! Since I have all your published books, I’ll just look forward to your next one!


  21. D7ana Says:
