I have met so many people through online connections. First, there was a small moderator community of maybe 20 women who helped with the running of message boards at OrganizedHome.com. We were there for each other through thick and thin, even though we lived across the country from each other or some of us closer or some of us further.
When the message boards at OrganizedHome.com closed, I found a group of local moms at a MomsLikeMe site hosted by my local Gannett paper. This was wonderful because we actually get together in real life too. Many have been to my home. Many have been to other things I go to. We support each other as did my other group of friends.
Now, I am connecting over the next ten days at MomaLom.com. I know the connection will last more than for five minutes over the next ten days. I just know new friendships will be forged. I encourage you all to stop over and see, for the next ten days, what MomaLom is up to.
