Agreed! One of my best friends lives about 1,000 miles away from me. I find that email just doesn't cut it anymore, yet she refuses to go on Facebook or Twitter. Consequently, some of my purely cyber pals know so much more of what is going on with me than she does. And I can't tell you how many times I utter the words "My friend Karen Wise said..." around the dinner table. LOL!


Karen, you do know that the Boston Globe web site is featuring you today, right?


No, I didn't -- thanks for letting me know! I would've figured it out by the end of the day, though, because whenever they do, my stats go through the roof. :-)


Although I make sure I maintain my 'real' relationships, I can't deny that blogging (and Twittering) has brought me in touch with some very cool people. I've met a few of my blogging 'friends' in real life, but mostly not.


I sometimes have dreams about my online pals. Sorta weird, sorta awesome!


Sing it, sister! Being online absolutely enriches my life both personally and professionally.

Speaking of meeting your blog friends in person, did you know that BlogHer is in New York next year? I have already signed up. It's a rare trip to the east coast for me.


Anyone have a link to that Globe mention? I couldn't find it, but have to admit I spent most of my time reading the steroids stories.


Every day they feature a New England blogger in the lower right corner of the main boston.com page. Sometimes it's me, as it was yesterday. I'm also now a "guest blogger" on the boston.com/newton page. :-)


That's great, Karen, and a pretty inspired idea by the Globe to amp up its local coverage without having to spend a dime.
