Meeting online friends IRL

starr vid
Here’s the thing. I’ve mentioned my bloggy bestie approximately 1001 times on this blog. You may know her: Starr from The Insomniac’s Dream. Our friendship started, because we randomly met in an online blogging group. We laughed, so hard at each other’s shenanigans and antics. We’ve been angry together, shared our triumphs and heartbreaks. Through it all, we’d only seen each other through either our awesome profile pics or Google Hangouts.

Until my summer in West Virginia when I finally invaded her space. We did the girl thing of squeeing and laughing and making public spectacles of ourselves.

I only stayed for a few short nights, but before I left, we had to do something for prosperity sake. And a special treat for you guys, our readers.

We made this short guide about meeting online friends in real life, and how we failed pretty brilliantly at it. *Spoiler Alert: We still had a kickass time.*

Oh and be on the look at for the second part to this series, where we tell you about friendly omissions. It’ll be over at the Insomniac’s Dream, but don’t worry. I’ll send you over when she’s ready for ya.

Aloha y’all!

      Thank ya, thank ya. I’ll stick to writing and making short, poorly directed vlogs. This way I can pretend to be an actor without actually learning how to act. lol.

  2. I laughed at how you guys tossed the itinerary out because it was too hot – very funny. Glad you were able to connect!

    This is fantastic info…the video is hilarious! I might be meeting up with a couple of my writer peeps and so on soon…I wonder how much of this we’ll fail at too! lol

      I was bummed that we hadn’t taken photos, but we were sweaty messes. And we made videos… so it all worked out in the end.

  6. I think it’s so awesome to see online friends finally get a chance to meet up!

    • Tamara Woods

      It was definitely one of my high points of my West Virginia visit–though she’s in PA. Ya know what I mean.

  7. Oh balls, y’all are so cute! Ha. I’m looking forward to the next one.

      Cary, I had no idea young boys talked about balls so much! Of course, I have the sense of humor of a 12 year old boy, so I was laughing every time.

    Hahahaha! I loved this! I’m so glad you ladies finally got to hang out and had an awesome time. Most of all, I’m glad the world didn’t actually explode or come to an end like we were all expecting.

    • Tamara Woods

      I think that may have been the cause of the atmospheric heat in her apartment. Two much awesome in one space. πŸ˜‰

  9. Oh my god this is so f*cking hilarious…facebook even in the same room.
    You both just made my day.
    And how about meeting your blog love at their wedding?
