IWSG: a place where writers and friends share woes or hugs.
Welcome to mine!



February's question is: Blogging is more than sharing stories. It’s often the start of special friendships and relationships. Have you made any friends through the blogosphere?

It is true, wherever a person goes, they take a chance at meeting new people and forming new bonds of friendship. I've met so many lovely bloggers the past ten years and it is exciting to stumble across them on other social platforms. It's like coming across them at the grocery store after only seeing them at writers conferences.

One of the best events I've made friends on the blogosphere was during the A to Z challenge! It's like speed dating, friendship style!

It is so nice to have you recognize me as well and be just as enthusiastic.

What about you? What has been your experience with friendship building on the blogosphere?



Thanks to the co-hosts: Louise - Fundy Blue , Jennifer Lane, Mary Aalgaard, Patsy Collins at Womagwriter, and Nancy Gideon!

  1. Speed dating - fun comparison.
    Sorry I'm late, but this just now showed up in Feedly.

    1. No worries, Alex--I actually was late writing it but backdated it, I hope that's okay! xD

  2. I never did the A-Z challenge. That's great that you made a lot of friends that way. I've made many through the IWSG and just blogging in general.

    1. Natalie--I participated about twice, I think! Blogging strengthened the friendships borne!

  3. It's like real life, few and far between and some people who I've thought were my friends turned out to not be very good friends at all. Sometimes it's made me feel really awful about myself that with billions of people in the world I'm so unlikable. These days, I'm too tired to dwell on it much.
    Also, there are "friends" and there are friends. When guitarist Robbin Crosby became sick from AIDS, he said "I used to think that I had all the friends in the world. When I got sick, I learned that I could count my real friends on one hand."

    1. I'm with you on that! I have on or two *very* good friends--the rest just past by and have been difficult to hold on to but that's okay because I'm very happy with those who have "stayed".
