Blog Out Loud 6 NYC was such a terrific experience for me. I had the fabulous opportunity to meet-up and “tweet-up” with so many people that I have been communicating with on Twitter and in the Blog-i-sphere over the last three and a half years. It really is a wonderful thing to put a Twitter @handle to a name and an avatar to a face.
Social media is an interesting creature –I am talking especially about Twitter– because you learn bits and pieces about people, who they are, what they like, their lives, businesses, and their sense of humor in doses of 140 characters or less. There comes a point and time after interacting with them where you feel as through you just know the person. I swear to you, when I met some of my Twitter friends at BOL, I couldn’t help but give these friends (that I have never met in person before) big, gigantic hugs!
I want to say a belated thanks to Rebecca and Megan for inviting me to take part. I am so flattered that they thought enough of ABCD Design to look to me when putting together the NYC panel. Thank you ladies! xox
