Question 19- Social connection

Can I yell at the stupid computer now?  I had the blog almost done and the whole thing deleted itself and then immediately auto-saved the blank version.  

How socially connected is your submission? Do you look for others to talk to about your submission for support or networking? Do you go to events or connect through another sort of social grouping either in person or online?


My main social contact is my Master.  

I do look for friends and support on line, and enjoy reading the blogs and experiences of other people.    However, in the online world I find a lot more people who want to tear others down and tell people they are doing it wrong than I find support.   One has to have a bit of a thick skin to be in the online world and still have fun with it.  People tend to express their asshole tendencies more freely from behind their computer screens. 

We attend events/munches together sometimes.  Usually just one a month because of other responsibilities (kids).   We have a wonderful and amazing group of friends here in this state.  Twisted Tryst was an extreme immersion in the community, and if you have been reading along you know how much fun we had.

  1. And now you understand why one does everything in Word and saves it first and why one rarely leaves the group :D
    See, all this understanding you have gleaned through life online :D

  2. Because you are smart! I should probably take a note: do in word! Especially if it is going to be something long. But I'll keep going outside my favorite group because sometimes it is exciting to swim with the sharks.

  3. Scampers off to suggest "chum" as your next name or perhaps "shark_bait" :D

We've been on vacation

Mexico! I may get back to blogging eventually, but for now there is laundry to do, food to restock in the kitchen, things to put away......
