I’m such a creature of habit… I’m sure we all are, but I’m really bad at it. So much so, that I don’t even have to order at some places… they see me coming and my order is up by the time I come in the door.
I realize that I’ve been that way online as well. I go to the same blogs, comment on the same topics… basically, you can see me coming. Not that there is anything wrong with that – I mean, I have some awesome friends online (go ahead, take a bow, you’re worth it 🙂 )Then I got this random thought… what if I started getting to know the other people associated with my friends, intentionally? After all, some of my closest relationships were because I was introduced by friends… maybe even by you, and now I act like I’ve known them all my life.
So here’s my thought… Not gonna be too aggressive about it, cuz my time is pretty minimal, but I’m going to choose, at random one new person a week, check out who they are, comment on their blogs and/or tweets, and just get to know some new people. Might be interesting to see who ends up in my life after this. You may see some random guest posts, or maybe some highlights from me (“hey, this person is great! you need to meet them!”).
Kind of excited.. something new, and even though I am a creature of habit, I still like new.
