For Bora

Snoopy hug
Back in the summer of last year, I began Emergiblog.

One morning I woke up to find that my site meter read “32”!

My goodness! Did Instapundit find my blog?

No, but Bora Zivkovic did.

Bora is best known as the blog host of Circadiana and Science and Politics and being the unofficial “King of Carnival Hosting”!

The day after he hosted Grand Rounds in August of last year, he gave “Emergiblog” its very first link. He gave me a boost when I needed it; the encouragement to keep blogging.

And now I’d like to return the favor.

Abel PharmBoy at Terra Sigillata posted that Bora was in need of some help financially as he stuggles to finish his thesis and deal with mounting bills.

Bora and I have different religious views and different political views but we share the same sense of humor, a committment to the blogosphere and frankly, he’s just a totally cool guy.

I know Bora has done this before for other bloggers.

Now it is his turn. If you would like more information, check out Abel’s post.

Otherwise, please click on the “Science and Politics” link above and hit the Pay Pal or buttons.

Bora would be ecstatic.

And I thank you.

    Kim, you are such a sweetheart, as if that were not already evidence from your blog and decades of dedication in caring for others. I sent Bora my Saturday night beer/wine money, but it was really Bill Hooker at Open Reading Frame that got the ball rolling publicly. Anyway, thanks! It’s great to read all of our own stories about why Bora is special to each of us.

    BTW, I neglected to check in and compliment you and your designer on the new blog design. It is very professional looking and easy to navigate. Congratulations!

    Of course, it would help if I gave the correct link to Hooker’s post.

    Abel, thanks for putting in Bill’s link – I should have gone back a “generation” and given him credit, especially since I left a comment on HIS blog…..

    My manners are like my memory, sometimes they have a “senior moment”.

    And thank you for your comments on the “new” blog!

    Kim, you are a ridiculously nice blogger. I’m saying this both because of the above post and because of a comment you left me a few weeks ago that I finally found (and responded to in comment, if you’d like to see). You’re so darn encouraging to everyone 😛
