Congratulations to Wendy!

You are the lucky reader who will be receiving a copy of Friendfluence!!

Enter to win a copy of Carlin Flora’s book, Friendfluence: The Surprising Ways Friends Make Us Who We Are.

Earlier this year, I was pleased to interview my colleague Carlin Flora, about her new book Friendfluence. Some of you may recognize her name from her guest posts on this blog.

To celebrate the publication of her book in paperback, Carlin has agreed to sponsor a giveaway to one lucky reader of The Friendship Blog.

When I reviewed the hard copy version of her book, I wrote:

The new book Friendfluence: The Surprising Way Friends Make Us Who We Are (Doubleday, 2013) makes a seminal contribution to the literature on friendship. In this meticulously researched and eminently readable book, journalist Carlin Flora has mined the extant research on this complex topic and woven it together with real-life examples (both her own and others). In so doing, she helps explain how these relationships evolve and their impact on our day-to-day lives from childhood through adulthood.

    I used to read the articles featured on Psychology Today, and have always appreciated your advice on concerns about making and maintaining friendships – it is challenging for many of us. Thanks for keeping this blog, and for this book giveaway.

  2. Wendy says:

    I stumbled on your blog while researching tips for making friends. 🙂

  3. Jackie says:

    I saw Irene on an early morning talk show (I believe today show perhaps) talking about friendship breakups. I was going through one at the time and ended up here.

  4. Emma says:

    I found this by googling about friendship problems.

  5. Kristin Howell says:

    Vintage and Anchor shared a link on twitter via a retweet that sent me here to the contest. 🙂

  6. Sharon says:

    Vintage Books and Anchor Books on facebook is how I discovered this blog. It would be wonderful to have the opportunity to read and appreciate this book since friendship is important to our health and welfare. Unfortunately a friend of 15 years decided to end a cherished friendship. This occurred while I was experiencing breast cancer, from which I have recovered now. Since I can benefit and learn from this book it would be wonderful since it sounds like a treasure.

  7. Liz says:

    Found this blog through an internet search on friendship problems!

  8. Becky says:

    Vintage books & Anchor books on Facbook..I too am a bookaholic! 😉

  9. Dina says:

    I’m a “book junkie” and liked Vintage Books on Facebook. I’m an only child and always found making friends difficult. I have a few friends that I actually call “close”. I moved to a new city and really have struggled trying to fit in. I would really like to win this book and add it to my library. Thanks!

    I’d love to win this book! I’m starting a new life in a new town and I’ve found it difficult to make new friends (so far).

  11. J Tretin says:

    My sister told me about this blog. Book sounds great.

  12. Jenn Judge says:

    I heard about your blog from Vintage & Anchor books! The book sounds delightful!

  13. Maringlen Kalaj says:

    I came to this blog from Facebook from a link on the Vintage Books & Anchor Books Facebook page that linked to this giveaway and also from a friend of mine who dropped a message last night containing the same link directing to this blog, so I hope I win. 🙂

  14. Dags says:

    I found this blog through a Vintage and Anchor post on Facebook. I am intrigued by the book and would love to win it… and will likely check it out either way. 🙂

    A tweet from vintage anchor.

  16. Tim says:

    I came to this blog from Facebook from a link on the Vintage Books and Anchor Books Facebook page that linked to this giveaway.

  17. Christine L. says:

    I visited your blog at the suggestion of a tweet about FRIENDFLUENCE from Vintage & Anchor. I hope to learn why connections I’ve made keep failing.

  18. Denise says:

    I cannot remember exactly how I found this blog, but probably a link from another site. I’ve been reading for several months.

  19. Georgianne says:

    I found this blog while looking up solutions to some “mama drama”.

  20. Marion says:

    I read an article perhaps inn the HUFFINGTON POST on the importance of friendships in mid-life. As Irene was featured in the article, that eventually led to this blog.

  21. Sylvia B says:

    Hi, I came to this blog when I typed into Google, “How can I make friends.” By the way, thank you for all the great information and helpful advice!

  22. Donna Krzykowski says:

    I found this blog when I typed into Google, Friendships Gone Bad. I was really surprised to see how common friendship breakups are. Also some good advice on trying to mend a friendship. Very interesting and very helpful as well.

  23. Laura says:

    I found this blog via google 🙂

  24. Jill Harman says:

    I wanted to find out if anyone else was having problems making friends. I googled friendship and there was the friendship blog. I love the information that you have and the personal experiences from others. It makes me feel better that I am not alone with the problems of what kind of people we choose as friends.

  25. Astrid says:

    Hi I came by the Friendship blog on a day I was really low after I discovered that a close friend of mine did not want to be friends any longer and did everything to avoid me and freeze me out of a little friendship group. Out of my frustration I tried to google my way to find whether other women had experienced similar problems as I thought that only men would be like that and totally stop all communication without any explanation. I found this blog and I was drawn to it as there is so much good advice.I discovered that I was not alone and that it is more common than what I realised. I am pleased I joined this blog on Facebook as I feel it supports people to get through difficult times where they could need a good and loyal friend.

    I’d like to win 🙂
