The Internet is an amazing thing.
You know it...I know it.
You love it...I love it.
But have you ever made a friend or gotten to know someone so much that you feel like you talk to them everyday because of the Internet? (dating services don't count)
Her name is Allison Hibbard.
The story is HERE.
And here's the update:
We now both read each other's blogs and frequently comment.
The other day she commented, on one of my posts about TV on DVD, "we could be good friends".
Allison and I have probably been in each other's presence for less than an hour (if I were to add up the times we've seen each other at Saddleback), yet it feels like we could be friends...because of blogger.com.
The other day I was talking to my friend and it reminded me of one of Allison's posts...I was about to say, "Oh yeah, Allison said the same thing" when I realized that my friend had no clue who Allison was and that I had never "heard" Allison say anything...I read it.
Allison...if you're reading this:
I think it's really cool (and kind of scary) that we know each other...just through blogs.
And if I had to judge you based on your blog alone, I'd say "Yes, we could be friends...I wouldn't mind at all!"
Yup! The Internet...an amazing thing.
