This must be my most 'happening' week in a long time. I met my reader Fresh Fry on Monday. Huier, whom I met through my blog, treated me to coffee and cake today. CH came by for dinner yesterday. His friend Chris and wife are coming for dinner tomorrow. We're joining a group of friends at the beach this Friday. I've invited a friend and her family over for lunch on Sunday.
I get a buzz when my social life becomes active like that. Maybe I should open a cafe so that people can drop by and visit every now and then.
When we met up this morning, Huier probably knows all about me whereas I knew nothing about her but we clicked so well, we were like soul sisters within minutes. Maybe she's drawn to my blog because our personalities are quite similar though physically, we're rather different. She's petite, pretty and gentle with a luxurious head of hair. Just like I had imagined.
One thing for sure, her vivaciousness is infectious. We both smile and laugh easily, and we're rather excitable and spontaneous. We hop from one topic to another seamlessly like we're long lost friends.
All these would not have happened if not for today's technology. Who would have imagined that a blog can bring like-minded people together. Why do we choose to read one blog over another? It's got alot to do with being able to relate to the writer. Naturally when writer and reader finally meet in the flesh, the barrier is lessened and there's so much to talk about.
So far I've met several readers including Casey, Karen, Fresh Fry, Huier, Nikki and Amel, and I've had nothing but encounters of the wonderful kind. Thank you readers, for making my day.
