Can you imagine meeting some of your blogging buddies in person? Would we like each other? Would our blogging buddies turn into friends?
As I look at my blogging buddies, I feel connected to some more than others. I have a lot in common with a few of my blogging buddies…things outside of blogging.
Theresa, the Queen of Zoom, writes Back Seat View. She and I have very similar childhood backgrounds. We both come from a Polish Catholic heritage. For those that are neither Polish or Catholic, you cannot imagine how much we would have to talk about! We also both like to ride motorcycles. She sounds like an incredibly strong, happy person.
Ella writes Eleanor Called Ella. She is a terrific writer. She and I have similar things to overcome. Although she is a young adult and I am considered a grown-up (age wise, not mentally!), I think we would have a great time debating politics and talking about books, authors, etc.
Kristin, at The Settlers Give It Passion, is brave and fun. She would probably get me back into taking ballet classes, or at least desiring to. I think we would enjoy walking our dogs together and just talking about everything under the sun.
PiP from Piglet in Portugal, and I both love food, too much from what she says. Along with Mike at The Mike/Mitch Project, we would end up talking about recipes and who makes the best what. PiP and I would exchange dieting tips that neither one of us would probably follow, and Mike and I would talk about the crazy, strange, and funny things that go on in the IT world.
Barb writes Passionate About Pets. If you read this blog daily, you know exactly why we would be friends! We are both passionate not only about our pets, but about animals in general. We would probably spend a lot of time visiting zoos and other places that have animals!
I’m sure there are other blogging buddies that would become real life friends if we would ever meet. These are the ones that popped into my head this morning.
The thing is, even though I have never met these folks outside of our blogging world, they do feel like friends. My life is all that much richer with them in it.
