Blog Buddies

Have you ever met somebody on the blogs and just immediately "clicked"? You know, you feel an instant connection regardless of distance or circumstances. I have been really lucky in that respect. About a year ago, I got an email that caught my attention, and began getting to know this guy. Now, I'm not here LOOKING for men, but as I said, there was just something about him. He's become a great friend and with a little traveling, maybe a FWB! And then a few months ago, I responded to a blog that was so heartfelt and this man has become a great friend also. I tell him more about the "real me" than I share with my husband. He has touched a place in my heart and my life like no other. We tease, we talk, we advise, and I know I could hide-out with him should I ever need to. He is the Tarzan to my Jane! What kind of friends have YOU found here? Do you see them as your extended family, as I do? The support and love we give to each other is amazing and sometimes I don't know what I would do if I didn't have all of you to turn to. Even my peeps across the ocean, or hundreds of miles across the country. I want to hear about YOUR experiences on the blogs. Who changed you by answering your blog, or who did YOU help?

Yes - I have made a few - REALLY - close blog friends. One is a woman (J) - just friends - but we have actually meet and are now friends in the real world. One a guy (V)- and we are planning to meet real soon - if it all works out we plan to send a blog of the experience - stay tuned.
There are a few others that are great to write to and who knows - the world gets smaller every day - the other side of the world is just a few plane rides away.
Then there are the others who have stopped by a few times and write now and then - I figure - you can't have too many friends.

You're right about that. Glad you've made so many!

A very lovely post for one thing, and it made me contemplate a little. I mostly have written on my blog for my own sake, allowing me to get thoughts out I would not otherwise. I have had some great feedback, especially recently(present company included), and it has been apparent I have influenced some. In the end, I can only extend my hand by way of words, as we all have the potential of doing in this format. To me, that is what journaling/blogging (at least with the intent of making it public) is for. Admittedly, we can only do so much, but as long as we listen to our inner voice, we can speak for ourselves, for our friends, and for those we may never know. It leaves only the reader to decide. Thankfully, there are so many ways to read, to listen and to speak. For all the bad, I have experienced orders of magnitude more good in dealing with the blogs and with those I have interacted.

I'm not sure how much of this answers your questions, but this is pretty much my take on the whole process.

I love your blogs! They keep me on my toes politically and we seem to view the country's problems in the same way. You also write about beautiful things and I appreciate those too. Keep blogging Chris!

For me, it is about helping those that need my shoulder!

akron42 replies on 8/3/2006 5:17 pm:
And what broad shoulder those are! We all need a shoulder to cry on at times, and it's great that you give that part of yourself to us. BTW, my shoulders can handle it if you ever need to cry on MINE.

I have made a few very powerful relationships with people on the blog... I know exactly what you mean about the connections. They are few and far between but amazingly powerful the ones I have formed. I am happy that you have had this experience as well...

akron42 replies on 8/3/2006 5:20 pm:
Well we are 2 of the luckiest people here then! I'm happy for you too.

i can't say i've really helped anyone; but in the last 9 months, there have been a handful of people with whom i instantly clicked. unfortunately, most are too far away. and some have drifted elsewhere... but this by no means lessens what we shared.

akron42 replies on 8/3/2006 5:20 pm:
That's the great thing about the blogs, distance doesn't really matter. We're as close as you PC!

Clicking is good, some real some surreal. Trust is an issue unto it's own here, and there, well actually in real life. In fact this is becoming real life to many.


akron42 replies on 8/3/2006 5:23 pm:
You're right. For some, this place is more important that RL and maybe that's because we find unconditional support here.

Yeah, I look at my blog friends the same as my real time friends, and would do to the same lengths to help them if I could. Actually I'm probasbly closer to more people here than in real time. Has anyone here changed me? No, can't say as they have. Have I helped others here? Honestly don't know, but I've tried like hell, and I hope in some way I was able to. Joe

Well Joe, you've changed me! You've become someone who's opinion I value, even if it differs from mine. I've been able to express myself to you and not fear ridicule for my beliefs. And of course, there's the sexy playfullness! Don't sell yourself short on this!

I have some absolutely amazing friends here in the blogs! there are so many incredible people here!

I care so very deeply about so many friends here... whether I have or ever will actually meet them or not!

My friends here know more about me than those in my so called "real life"!!

I never would have guessed I could have such deep friendships online! But it is true!

Wanna be my friend too?

akron42 replies on 8/7/2006 5:26 pm:
Absolutely! I've seen you slipping in and out of blogs everywhere, you seem to have lots of friends and I would consider it an honor to be one of them! Glad you're here!
