visiting Tokyo

In the past few weeks I’ve had the pleasure of meeting up with two people that I may not have otherwise met without weblogs and the Internet.
Sean O’Rourke of the Organized Shopping Blog and Umair Haque of the Bubble Generation Strategy Lab both came through Tokyo and I was able to meet with them over dinner.
There have been many benefits from starting my blog 5 years ago, but the best ones are how it has enabled me to meet new people that I probably would not have met otherwise.

    I agree. I’ve met more than just a few people due to either my blog, or just blogging in general. I love how social circles that otherwise would never have overlapped jump space via the internet. Gives me hope 🙂

    And, it’s a good way for people googling your name to get your contact information, which has happened to me.
