This post is for Alex Cavanaugh’s Insecure Writers Support Group (click the link for details on what that means and how to join. You will also find a list of bloggers signed up to the challenge that are worth checking out. The first Wednesday of every month, we all post our thoughts, fears or words of encouragement for fellow writers.
Hooboy, this is so true. I often talk about my blogging friends as though they were real people (ha! Of course they are!). I learn a lot from their experiences–history, emotions, even about life. I exult over their successes and worry if I don’t hear from them for a while. I’m always happy when one of them warns me s/he will be away for a while because then I don’t worry so much. I love reading how two people who met through the blogosphere then met up in person–or the reverse. ‘Meeting people online’ has grown up a lot since the day I warned my kids to stay away from strangers on the internet!
I guess most important: When I step on toes in my real world and feel alone, I have you-all. Thank you.
How about you?
