Welcome to Day 12 of the SexGeek Challenge! Today’s prompt is Name 3 Online Friends You Want to Meet Offline. Before we get into this post, I want to recommend my article on safely meeting online people offline. The post was about dating but a lot of the same advice relates to meeting anyone IRL.
It was hard to choose just 3 of my online friends to meet offline because I have a lot of online peeps that I consider friends. I spend the majority of my time at home, online. This is mostly because I’m a stay at home mom, compounded by the fact that my work is pretty introverted (writing). So I don’t want any of my online friends that I don’t mention here to be offended. I chose these 3 people because they were the most supportive of me when I reentered the kink scene with my erotic writing and was looking for like minds on Twitter. (BTW, you should totally follow me on Twitter)
CJ Douglass – probably the first friend I made on Twitter when I created my account and shared my erotica goals. She not only had fantastic writing advice in this particular genre, she was my first beta reader, paperback formatter, and I consider her a friend. Her work is fantastic, btw, and I’m a particular fan of Overcranked.
Charlton C. Tod – another friendly face early on and the creator of my awesome Nerdy, Dirty, & Curvy book covers! He not only has been super helpful and encouraging but has given me a lot of laughs and put up with my snark really well. I think we bonded over being mutual fans of Primal Play when it feels like so many people have no idea what that is.
Julie McGillis – my critique partner and good online friend. While we met over writing needs I think we bonded over sharing mutual mental health rants and us both having geeky husbands. I honestly don’t know if I would have stuck with SmutGeek if it wasn’t for this lady here.
