Meeting a Friend and Fellow Blogger

If you read PK's blog, you know we had lunch after becoming blogging friends for the past three years. This is the first time I've met one of my online friends.

In case you missed it, here is what she wrote about it:

As she said, it was a great lunch and there were none of the usual awkward moments that you sometimes have in a conversation when you meet someone for the first time. But then even though we hadn't met in person, we know each other so well from sharing our lives online that it wasn't like a first meeting. More like two old friends getting together again. And fun talking about our lives and the various bloggers we both read. And how Cassie had been in her head when she was just a kid. So nice she is able to share her with us.

If you read my blog, you know I often call her my mentor. She convinced me to start writing stories (which I need to start doing again) and to start a blog. She even set it up for me because I tend to be a computer clueless type.

And she is a wonderful wife and mother. Nick is so lucky to have her. And she raised two delightful kids who have left the nest and are making their way in the world although she is so modest, she takes no credit and simply says she didn't screw them up. If you know her, she deserves plenty of credit.

And nice that Nick has no issues when her becoming online friends with a guy although I've always felt married couples should be able to have friends of the opposite sex. One of my high school classmates lives in my town and we have lunch occasionally (she has no idea about my dom side) and the husband sometimes joins us for lunch, talks sports a while and then leaves as we continue to chit chat. Many guys don't like to talk about their lives but I enjoy it.

Anyway, if you read enjoy reading PK's blog and become friends with her, I hope you do you do get to meet her sometime. You will be glad you did.



  1. Hi :)
    I did read PK's post on meeting with you and I agree that there is nothing wrong whatsoever with having friends of the opposite sex.
    Going from online friends to meeting in person, it could have gone either way, I think it's great that it went so well for you both :)

    I'm so happy you met PK and had a good lunch. I would love to have been able to join you both.

    I'm glad PK persuaded you to start your own blog and yes you need to write some more stories:)


  3. Dee: Since PK and I already knew each other so well online, I thought it would go well and it did.

    Ronnie: Yes, would have loved to have you joining us for lunch. And yes, I need to write more stories.

  5. It is wonderful making friends online and then meeting then in real life.
    I enjoy reading your blog also, glad you are writing.

  6. I too read PK's post about your meeting - its awesome. Im sad that i wont ever get to meet any of you as im way on the other side of the world, but nevertheless Ill make the most of your friendships in here :)
    love and hugs kiwi xx

  7. FD!
    We'll have to start a mutual admiration society! Thank you for the kind words. I'm just really glad we got to meet and that our friendship will continue.


  8. Blossom: Yes, I have written stories. I did about 11 chapters of a series called Lisa's Training. Unfortunately, I haven't updated it in the long time although the stories are in my archives. Here's a link to the first one:


    Southern Sir: Yes, it is fun to meet people you've become friends with online. And thanks for the kind words.

    kiwigirliegirl: Maybe you'll get a chance to meet a blogger in your part of the world.

    PK: I hope we didn't overdue it in tossing bouquets at each other, but it was so nice to finally meet.


  9. That's so awesome. I think one should be able to have friends of opposite gender too, but my husband says no to that. Anyway, how neat for you both.

    I sure hope someday I can trust an online friend enough to meet them in person. I think it would be an amazing experience.

  10. I've met PK (and Nick). They are really great people! Glad you got to experience PK....for an experience she is!


  11. That's so great you were able to meet! Some of the best friends I have now I have as a result of taking that leap and meeting for the first time after getting to know them online for a few years.

    Here's to many more meetings to keep that friendship moving to its next phase (meaning R/L and not romantic! ;) ).
