who says blog friends aren't real?

My friend Ruthanne brought her crew to visit today. Right now, all the kidlets are tucked in bed and (hopefully) tuckered out.

Now we're chillaxin.



If Melissa were here too, we'd have the thermostat kicked up to 80 just for her. Because blog friends are nice like that.

(Not to mention the fact that if you really tick one off, they can write all sorts of bad stuff about you. Not that any of us would do that of course!)

Have you met up with any bloggy friends lately?

It's about kindred spirits, y'all. I highly recommend it.

My husband laughs when I talk about my blog friends ... but we keep saying that one day WE WILL meet!

Christine Sweet said...

I totally agree. :)

Tracy said...

YEP! I got to meet Beth yesterday. Our kids loved each other! Meeting Bloggy Friends is so fun!

Susan said...

Feeling a bit 'way out west'. But I know what you mean...meeting bloggy friends is a wonderful experience.

Ruthanne said...

Yes, I was in my jammies. It's the best way to hang out. Yo.

Thanks for hosting us, Marshy-Marshmallow. :D

Ah that's sweet.. haven't had the pleasure yet with the exception of my Bestie who is also a Blogger... but one day...

Leanne said...

I love Marshy-marshmallow!!!!

Yes, I've had the privilege of meeting up with bloggy friends, a couple of times. You and Coco, Susan....that was a really fun time, wish we could do it again!!

I did have an un-fun experience with a blogger who I thought was a kindred spirit in my own town. She ended up ditching me after a year of what I thought was great, deep friendship.

But the positives outweigh the negatives when meeting bloggers IRL.

One of these days I'm coming there!!

I haven't met any ppl from the internet, bloggers or Twitterers, but I consider quite a few of them real friends.

I just met my first blog friend, Hollie, earlier this summer. It's kind of through my sister though, which made it feel much safer.

Not having to worry about "Is this person actually some freakish, para-normal, axe-murdering stalker?" makes for a much more pleasant visit. :)

So glad you had a lovely visit - friends (blog or not) are so important.

I have met a few of my blog friends in the past. I also speak to a couple on the phone quite regularly! At Christmas when we are stateside we are planning a road trip that will be staying with two of my closest blog friends for a few days each. Hubby wasn't so sure but he is on board with it now! LOL! Of course some of my IRL friends think I'm NUTS for going on a road trip to stay with people I met on the internet! Hehehe! I can't wait! Glad you had a great time. - Deedee
