Last weekend M, C, Little L, and I headed to the San Jose Tech Museum for a special Silicon Valley Moms Blog event. We were supposed to be excited to be meeting Bill Nye, but since I had never heard of him and he hasn’t yet been featured on the Little Einsteins or Dora the Explorer, the girls and I were just excited to be going to a party. I think M was just stoked to have something different to do for once.
I walked into the room that was slowly filling up with bloggers and their families and for possibly the first time I wasn’t struck dumb with shyness. I knew more faces in that room than faces I didn’t recognize. Even better, I liked each and everyone of the people those faces were connected to.
Those people aren’t just my blog acquaintances, they’re my friends. I hang out with them on Twitter and Facebook during the day. I visit them on their blogs. And when I see them at bloggy events I feel instantly connected to them.
I used to suffer from terrible social anxiety before any blog event. Now I actually look forward to them. It’s not surprising that I found my tribe inside the computer, it is however awesome that I like them even more outside of it.
