Meeting someone in person…it can be nerve-racking. A couple weekends ago, this was me at a Starbucks waiting to meet my Instagram friend for the very first time.
We had been friends for a while, via social media, and I found out she lived nearby. Eventually, we agreed to meet up for coffee and conversation.
I honestly didn’t know what to expect. This isn't a typical thing for me to do, but I guess this is what happens after you create a network of friends on-line. Eventually, they become close to you in a way where you want to reach out.
When my Instagram friend arrived, we really hit it off. We were chatting it up long after my coffee and vanilla bean scones had disappeared. We actually lost track of how long we had been occupying space at Starbucks! It's no wonder though, since we were already acquainted with each others lives.
I ended up doing her daughter’s engagement photo shoot the following week. It was awesome and I am so glad that I met my friend Jen.
Have you ever ventured out to meet a blogging buddy or someone you met on-line? How did it go? Would you do it again?
