It was the Sunday where everything went wrong. 3 episodes were scheduled with 8 different guests and 6 had to back out at the last minute. It was just my luck that I found the most incredible co-hosts for our episode about Internet communities at the last minute: Kat from Mugglenet.com and Barb from Trendom.co.
Mugglenet is a mega-popular site and as a young Potterhead, it was one I gravitated to. As soon as their global re-read of the entire series, Alohomora, started up, I listened and then got the courage to apply to be a guest**. I spoke to Kat via email once or twice and then we found one another on a social media job group on Facebook! We even worked together on a client that… we just don’t want to talk about, but on to bigger and better things! :P
Barb and I met each other on… Twitter! We were both live-tweeting The Emmy’s and having a blast. Live tweeting is hit or miss if the witty peeps of the internet don’t write back. Barb and I tweeted at each other throughout the night. It makes my night when I make a new friend through twitter (see: Dave). I love her site Trendom.co and am thoroughly enjoying their playlists on Spotify. Check ’em out!
