When I started blogging in January, I viewed it as an isolated endeavor, a forum in which to practice writing and photography and to record events in my travels and daily life. It did not occur to me that I would develop friendships online. There are several people whose blogs I follow closely and I have begun to get a sense of the person behind the blog.
I had a wonderful day in Shanghai meeting fellow blogger Mona. Turns out we've lived a short drive from each other at one point. It's a small world after all!
