I've been on the Internet and active in various chatrooms and message boards for going on ten years. Most of the time, all you see of a person are typed words on a computer screen. Sometimes they'll post a photo. What's special is when you get to meet an e-friend in person.
Today I got to meet our latest contest winner, Cassie. Turns out we live in the same area and we arranged to meet during her lunch hour at the library. She's real, folks! Flesh and blood and very nice! She even let me take a picture of her holding her prize from the blog contest.
Congrats again to her!
