How well do you know someone from their blog? If you enjoy reading about him/her, would you necessarily enjoying meeting him/her? I've been pondering this for a while. Melissa is moving back to Brooklyn soon...I live in Brooklyn now. She knows the Artist Formerly Known as K Lance...so do I. I like reading her blog...she likes reading mine. You would think that this would be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. I would like to meet her and The Man. But maybe the allure only exists in cyberspace. Maybe we are different people in real life, people who think the other is boring. Maybe that's what makes our blogs interesting. We aren't lying persay...but portraying a different aspect of ourselves. Or maybe I'm just talking about me. I get the sense Melissa is true to herself no matter where she is.
I believe I'm being honest here at She is Able..., but my friend who's been blogging for two years often talks about how bloggers will post what they think they should write or how they would like to be portrayed, as opposed to how they really are. I wonder if I do that. And if I do, does that mean that Melissa won't like me if we were to meet up once she moves back here?
Perhaps I'll offer to help her carry boxes then watch "CSI" and "Without a Trace" together...that should work.
