This thing called the Internet is a funny thing. It is good for things like going to school, doing research, learning new things, keeping in touch with friends, renewing old friendships, shopping and blogging. It can be bad for your identity can be stolen, predators lurk, and you can't always trust what you read on sites. The Internet is here to stay though so we need to earn to work with this media.
One of the best things about the Internet is making new friends. I have had the privilege of meeting new people through my blogging and have learned to network with other professionals through this crazy thing called the Internet.
One such friend is Amory. We have been following each other's blogs for some time. Amory blogs here. She lives up in Northern California, I live in Southern California. Awhile back we started emailing each other as a way to get to know each other on a more personal basis. She is totally someone that I would hang out with.
I finally had the opportunity to meet Amory and her family in person. They were in southern California and I met them at Disneyland. Her girls are adorable ~ her oldest daughter ran right up and gave me a hug. Her husband is so nice and Amory is as sweet as I knew she would be. Next time I am up in Northern Cal we are going to get together again.
This is definitely a plus of blogging. Real blogger friends! Now I can't wait to meet others who write blogs that I follow. I feel like I have friends all over the country :)
