Day 3 of the 15 Day Book Blogger Challenge! I know, I know. It's been a while (4 months! oops) since my last challenge post. I just wasn't up for it but now I am! In case you missed it, I shared my bedtime reading rituals for day 2 and this time it's all about my blogging BFFs.
DAY 3: Who are your blogging BFFs?
While I have made many book blogger friends in the last few months I've been at this, I only consider two to be my BFFs. We don't just talk about books. We talk about everything. From our favorite TV shows to random (and not so random) people we stalk on Instragram, every conversation is enjoyable. I just have to talk to them even for just a little while everyday. Chatting them up is almost like a reflex now! Does that make me sound clingy? (of course it does)
So anyway, I only told one of them I'd be including her in this post (I told her I'm claiming her as my BFF. "CLAIMING") so this might come as a surprise to the other one. I hope it's a pleasant surprise. Heeh.
Charlie is the one I claimed as my BFF. As in I told her, "Hey, we're blogging BFFs now, okay?" and she was like, "yeah sure." Hah! She's one of the bloggers I talked to often when I started and we've grown closer through the months. Our favorite means of communication? Emails. We share the same sentiment: emailing someone is a grown up thing to do. Whenever we feel like talking about something extensively, we email each other. Lately we mostly talk about TV shows we both watch. She compiles all her reactions in one email then I react. It looks something like this:
Charlie: Nolan is so cute in this scene!
Charlie: WTF why is Charlotte doing this???
Me: Nolan is so cute in this scene! -IKR! Nolan is da bomb
Me: WTF why is Charlotte doing this??? -because she's Charlotte, that's why
(If you're wondering, yes, we're fans of Revenge)
I've yet to meet Charlie in person. I live in Manila and she lives in Bacolod (map below if you're curious haha). It sucks but at least I know she's only an email (or tweet) away.
It all started when I joined her blog giveaway and tweeted daily to earn more raffle entries. Or maybe it was when I accidentally sent a tweet to her when it was meant for another person but she replied nonetheless no matter how confused she was because she's that nice? Whatever. Point is, we met and became friends via Twitter. Ah yes, the magic of the internet indeed! I bug Dianne on Facebook constantly. We have the most random conversations ever. We talk about books, blogging woes, our favorite celebrities, our crushes, even quirks we have in common! We talk so much that a couple of days not talking seems weird. Yep, clingy.
It's always a blast talking to Charlie and Dianne. We never run out of things to talk about and I'm totally comfortable sharing with them. Even my most embarrassing stories (I HAVE PLENTY, BT DUBS)!!! You know how you just click with some people? Well, I'd like to think I clicked with these two the moment we started chatting. (CHEESEBALLS. But I know you love me anyway.) It's just so much better blogging when you have buddies in the community, don't you think? ;-)
How about you? Got any blogging BFFs? :D
