I started reading blogs during all of our reproductive drama. Reading other’s experiences comforted me, but I got in the bad habit of lurking and never commenting. I still can’t quite kick my lurking habit. It’s as if my computer screen is a window where I just peek into the online world.
But those people in my computer? They’re real! And I met some of them on Monday night. The lovely Emily organized a local bloggers dinner, where we socialized before heading to Erin of $5 Dinner’s book signing. And I met Casey. And Jen. And Briana. And punkinmama. And Michelle. And Crystal. And Cherie. And Angie. And Kristin. And Jennette. And Jenni. And Anna. And Shelli. And Amy.
And I realized that I should quit peeking into the online world and get more involved. Because gals who love their iPhones, introduce themselves by their Twitter handles, and nod in understanding when I admit that I check my email before feeding my children breakfast? I HAVE FOUND MY PEOPLE.
