The wonderful thing about social media is that you never know who you are going to meet and become friends with. The potential to connect is available on so many levels I would never presume to define the variables that make on-line relationships grow. A Tweet-peep here and a Facebook there... a third party introduction... everywhere you look there's an ActiveRainer...
People looking to connect usually find a way to fulfill their expectations. Sometimes they exceed our wildest dreams. Other times, we are saddened by our level of disappointment. We don't always get what we want, but once in a while a real gem will appear and when that person materializes you find yourself wondering, "how did I get so lucky to stumble across you?" In this case, it was a third party introduction between Tweet-peeps. Several of my friends were already following her, so (me being a serial commenter) I decided to join the conversation (LOL). Boy am I glad that I did. :-)
When you find that gem, you begin to realize in short order that something wonderful has happened and you treasure cultivating that relationship. Out of the billions of people in cyberspace, we all get to choose our virtual affiliations and pick our friends. We start with our brick and mortar peeps and learn to slowly expand our sphere of acquaintances and influence one relationship at a time. I am happy that I picked Twitter-peep @RosePena and that she was kind enough to "follow me." Following her around has made my life very interesting (LOL). As a recreational reader I enjoy sharing books and Internet links and discovering what my friends are up to. Rose is always reading something interesting and I can count on her when it comes to learning something new every single day. My girlfriend Susan Mangigian has a wonderful group entitled Realtors and Friends That Read. I am a virtual-card carrying member and love to check out their reading selections, so I gravitate towards people who read and share their discoveries across social media accounts. :-)
One of my favorite Club Chaos traditions is the formal introduction of a friend. Amanda Hall introduced Melody Botting. Melody Botting introduced me. Now I get to introduce Rose Pena. Please go say hello to our brand new Club Chaos member. I'm looking forward to reading her very first Active Rain blog post.
BTW, Rosemarie provides consulting and training in the following areas: Network Systems, CMS, Interactive Multimedia, eCommerce, eMarketing, Web Hosting, Development & Design, Social Media. She has a lovely bio and is going to be working with us on the group collaborative writing project between Club Chaos and the Seth Godin Fan Club. How cool is that? I think it's awesome!
