This weekend, I’m sitting in a conference for writers and we are talking about emails right this very second. Next to me are 3 of my blogger friends. I’ve introduced you to all of these guys before. Chris from the Forgiven Wife, Bonny from OysterBed7, and J from Hot Holy Humorous.
I have read these guys blogs for many years and we connect with each other online. It’s so great to meet them in person for the first time. And you know what? They are just regular folks- like me. Right now, I’m in a room full of bloggers, but it feels like Sunday School. We’re just a group of people that are all here for the same reason and we are being real with each other.
It got me thinking about something, a lot of people read my blog and follow me on social media. They have a chance to get to know me. They feel connected to me. My stories and sex games are changing their lives. But…I don’t get to know them like that. And, I hate that.
If you didn’t know about me, I love to talk to people. I’m an extreme extrovert. I’m always looking for ways to build community. In fact, Austin and I packed our kids up and moved to Texas to develop closer community with people we chose as our family.
Needless to say, I think community is important and I’ve gone to great lengths to make it happen. It’s exactly why we created the Love Hope Adventure Community on Facebook. If you haven’t joined us over there, be sure to request to be a member here.
The group is the best way for us to get to know each other and talk. If you have questions, email me or post them up in the group. Guys, I want to get to know you all. I’ve got things I’m struggling with in my life and I know you do, too. Let’s no go this alone.
