Last night I met one of the bloggers I follow. We ran into each other at a local coffee shop. I hope that doesn't violate any unspoken rules of blogdom. It was so exciting to meet this woman whose blog and, therefore, life, I have been following for months. She was prettier than her photo and bubbly and fun. I knew she lived in my town but who would have thought we would meet by accident.
It's kind of complicated but a friend of mine, Diedra, who also blogs, was there and she recognized her. Knowing that I follow "Graceful," she brought her over to introduce me. What a great surprise!
I had been there for a meeting and she was there to present a reading for a writer's group she belongs to. I couldn't stay to listen but I'm going back in January when she reads again.
This blogging thing is fairly new to me but the vistas it has opened and the friends I feel I have made all over the country and the world are amazing. It was more than I could have ever imagined.
Have you met any of your blog friends?
