Yesterday, a girl asked me if I had time for a conversation. I did, so we sat down and had a good, long talk. It turns out, she heard me mention writing and books, and as she was an inspiring writer, she wanted someone to talk to about it.
You know what, it was a really great conversation. We talked about plot and I passed on some stuff I've learned in my year and change in the blogosphere learning about the craft from you fine people.
It made me feel really good to communicate with another aspiring author. It reminded me of how I got into this blogging thing. I remember how happy I was when I first 'met' all the funny, interesting people there were on the Internet, people who, like me, had somehow found their way into the writing. It was nice to know I wasn't the only one doing it.
Yesterday reminded me of why I'm involved with this social network.
How did you become involved in blogging? Why do you stick around in the blogosphere?
