I’ve been blogging for about five years and honestly it has been one of the best things that I could have done for myself. Not only has it allowed me to become acquainted with other like-minded women but it also has provided several great opportunities for me.
In addition, being involved with social media and blogging has allowed me to open up more and step outside of my typical socially awkward introvert box. I’ve never really done well with social interaction and it’s always a struggle for me when I meet new people in person. However, online none of that matters because I can interact with who I want, whenever I want, and be the social butterfly that I know I am deep down inside.
Regardless of how easy it is to meet friends online it will never take the place of having a great tribe of real-life girlfriends you can interact with. Don’t get me wrong I’m not sitting at home crying over my lack of female friends. Of course it would be great to have a group of ladies I could take vacations with or just get together and do things we ladies like to do. That would be a wonderful reality but I find that as I’ve gotten older its so much harder to meet and become friends with women.
Could it be that social media interaction has taken the place of face-to-face interaction? Everyone seems to be fake busy, text messages have taken the place of phone calls and you check up on your friends and family by checking their timeline. I sometimes feel like people are only willing to open their lives to others when they can benefit from it.
Why is it so hard for me to find my Joan Clayton, Toni Childs, Lynn Cersei and Mya Wilkes that I can call upon every once in awhile? I know I can’t be the only one that finds it hard to make female friends.
I may not have any BFFs in Miami but I do have great women that I have met through blogging. You guys already know about Jeanee, she’s my Virgo, vegetarian, big booty sister, lol. She’s always down to hang out, hit the gym, take blog pictures, or just sit by the pool. I am grateful for her along with my other blogging friends, Ashley and Kerrisa.
