There is a saying that there are no strangers here, just friends we have not met yet. How true that is. My ascend into blogosphere was an experiment in putting my story online. What I got was more than what I had hoped to gain. One of the greatest rewards I got from blogging is the friendships that were forged with fellow bloggers and those who read my blog.
For one who is homebound most of the time, I seldom get to go out and get on with people in a meaningful way. Over a span of slightly more than two years since I started putting my life and thoughts in writing online, I have gotten acquainted with more people than I could ever imagine. This is God sent.
My trips to Kuala Lumpur have always been fruitful. I make those trips to be with Wuan first and foremost. We do not see each other as much as we would like to. It is also a good way to test my independence away from the places and people that I am familiar with. Travelling alone gave me the opportunity to see the kindness in people who never hesitated to assist me whenever I asked for it.
Those were also a times for me to catch up with friends, most I have met online, some I have never met in real life. Seventeen attended the Bloggers Meet in One Utama. All I met for the first time except Adriene. We got together to pray the Mass at the Cathedral when she was in Penang in December. Since Kenny started #MalaysiaBloggers at DalNet, I have gotten acquainted with many more. Those I would like to meet in real life too.
For this coming trip to Kuala Lumpur, I am calling for a Bloggers Meet again. This in an open invitation to all bloggers and blog readers alike. For those who missed the previous meet, I hope you all can make it for this one. This is a good opportunity to get to know each other better. Details are as below:
Mid Valley Megamall Bloggers Meet
Venue: Food Junction, Level 3
