Day 5: Befriend
Did you meet any new friends this year? How did they impact your 2011?
I'd have to say that the new friends I've met this year haven't been in real life, but in this wonderful online community. It was a goal of mine last year to really connect with the bloggers I had been stalking for over a year. I created this blog and my own Twitter handle and begin putting myself out there. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to keep up with either social outlet, but a year later I think I can say that I have accomplished that.
I've connected with these friends over earthquakes and The Bachelor, college football (Pac-12 & the Golden Bears), a love of Giants baseball, a common city we've lived in, engineering outreach, trying to conceive AND SO MUCH MORE. (Click each link to meet my friends yourself!) Many of them encouraged me to keep up with blogging and helped me along the way. Quickly connecting with many of them on Twitter makes my day so much more interesting and fun! I can't imagine NOT being online friends with them and hopefully sometime in the near future I can meet those who live near by IN REAL LIFE! :-)
I hope to connect with even more of you in 2012! I'm already meeting so many people through this years #WEverb11. I don't know about you, but I feel like I'm connecting so much more with the #WEverb11 community this year than the #Reverb10 community last year! :-)
Are you participating in #WEverb11? If not, go here for more info! It's an awesome way to reflect on last year and you'll meet tons of new people in the process! :-)
