In the age of technology: There is nothing like seeing a face
Some days I feel like my only human connection is with:
My kids, the grocery store bagger and the three people I make eye contact with in carpool line.
Yet, I am connected to hundreds of people online through my blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
I know that you have just written The Bacon Edition of the Worst Food Photography.
I laughed when I read that your son said “I can’t sleep because my toots keep fooling me.”
And you made me fry up and egg for dinner after I saw your Avocado, Bacon and Egg Sandwich picture.
I get tricked into feeling connected sometimes. Like these little banters in cyberspace are filling my human need for contact. I though I knew people…
And then I went to Bloggy Boot Camp and remembered what real human contact is (and it looks like a shower and make-up with a hand shake)
I am telling you what, I met so many amazing, talented, smart, funny women writers and entrepreneurs over the weekend, I think I’m going to need some therapy to get over my shortcomings. At the very least my lack of craft skills.
When you get to meet successful women like Tiffany Romero, Francesca Banducci, Laurie Turk, and Danielle Smith you get both inspired and overwhelmed. In awe of the talent and possibilities. Then you think, “where do I even start?!?”
God, I forgot how fun it is to meet new people (and how nice it is to sleep in a hotel room by myself). I adore you amazing women out there. I love how the internet is giving you a voice and a place to show off your gifts. Old, young, short, tall, black, white, hairy or bald, cyberspace is the great equalizer and allows everyone to have a place.
But, it’s not the real deal. I’m so glad I got to shake you hand!
