Yesterday, I had my first meeting of someone from the Blogosphere. NME, her husband, and her gorgeous son Noah were visiting someone on the floor of the hospital where I work. Therefore, I got a change to meet the family whose life I follow through her blog everyday.
Many of the people whose blog I follow live somewhere in the general vicinity of me. Several of them live down in the Philadelphia area, which means that someday meet-ups are possible and even probable. It's interesting how something like blogging (and something as random as the "Next Blog" button) can lead you to a person who you might have been friends with if you had met in person. Is this the new way to make friends? After all, the Internet has already revolutionized how we meet our future mates. I met Bill on a personals site that was eventually swallowed up by Match.com all the way back in May 2000. And I met some of the women that I confide my deepest secrets in on eDiets last year. Will blogs be the ice breakers of the future?
Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera with me, so I have no images to share. However, NME did take a few pictures of me holding Noah...so perhaps they will hit her blog soon.
In the meantime, it was great to meet you! Maybe we will do it again some time (in a different place, I hope)!
