I attended the VancouverMom.ca Top 30 Vancouver Mom Blogger party the other night. I love a good party and this was a great one. Christine Pilkington is doing amazing things with the VancouverMom.ca as well and the Entrepreneur Mom Now Network – check them out if you have a chance.
What struck me after the party on the long drive back to Whistler was the absolute high I was on. It was such an incredible experience to walk into a room and know so many of the partygoers – mostly because of this blog. The Pretirement blog has created a way for me to meet, develop relationships with, and stay connected to some of the most amazing people I know. I’m fall down on my knees grateful for that.
Though most of those relationships started out digitally, when I walked into the party I was greeted with warm hugs (not emoticons) and face-to-face conversations that still have me buzzing with inspiration. I even got a compliment on how my bum looked in my skirt…it was a magical night.
One of the recurring themes of the speeches given by the award winners that night was the amazing sense of community these bloggers experience online. They contribute by sharing their lives and experiences and they get back so much more in love and support from readers. None of them really expected that. I count myself lucky to be among them and even luckier to have the chance to connect with all of you.
