Blog Day Afternoon

Over the last couple of year I've been a regular reader of a blog about a girl who wrote her experiences about getting married, post-wedding life and then her pregnancy and now motherhood.

This summer, while I was back in Karachi, I got a chance to meet up with her and see her son. It was a remarkable experience to watch things come in full circle. Although it was a bit weird at first... we were complete strangers, who knew so much about each other! But we had a good laugh about that too.

That's the great thing about blogging. It really connects people.

Jammie, Mona and I were pregnant at the same time. I used to read their blogs every day. Even though we didn't know each other, we had so much in common. It was great fun to read their experiences and their mind set as things progressed. As we continue on our ways, it is these people who will be a part of my life as I work my way around parenting my kids. Their experiences and stories make me smile and I can always relate to them. Write on ladies... you brighten up my day!

Thanks Jammie, for a lovely afternoon. It was a treat to see you and your son.

it was a lot of fun- almost like picking up where you left off from another time- except in this case we hadnt met- hehe- and it was great to meet the original star of your blog even if she did sleep through most of it!

I've had the blessing of meeting 5 blog buddies within the last 12 months. It really is amazing the way you can connect with someone through blogging, even if you never meet.
