Hooray! I knocked this one out all at once. In fact, I was an overachiever – I met about 15 online friends in real life over the weekend.
During my wedding planning, I joined the message boards on The Knot for advice. I started posting right after my engagement in February 2007. I made a lot of internet buddies, some of whom I still talk to daily through email.
A few months after the wedding, I moved over to the sister site of The Knot called The Nest. The Nest has a local board but also a variety of boards for different interests. I started posting on the book club since I’m an obsessive reader. I had just finished reading the Twilight series last fall and needed a place to chat about it, so I had found my new online home.
The movie Twilight was released on DVD/Blu-ray over the weekend, so a group of girls from my local board decided to have what ended up being called the Sparkletastic Vampwhore party in Charlotte. I had a great time, and was able to meet a few people who I’ve been talking to for months but have never met before. What a great time! I hope I’m able to meet up with some of them again.
