C is for Coincidence

Sometimes the world seems like a small place. A VERY small place.

The world felt itty-bitty this weekend when I met book blogger Dani from Refracted Light Reviews at Panera for lunch. Her YA blog was a co-host for the Launch Party of my novel Streamline last week, and when I discovered she also lived in Columbus, Ohio, we agreed to meet in person.

Imagine my surprise when I found out where Dani lives...in a city of 2 million people, she lives 100 yards away from me! We had a good laugh about living in the same condo complex for three years and never knowing it.

It was wonderful to meet Dani, and we also joined kickass book blogger Jenny from Supernatural Snark blog (who I'd met once before) for lunch.

Aren't both of these gals adorable? I've met some of the nicest people through blogging.

What coincidences have you experienced through blogging?

Stay tuned for my "D is for Downing" post tomorrow. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

Wow, that is amazing! I have had coincidences like that but can never think of them on the spot. Love it when it happens, though.

LindaK said...

That's so mad! I'd love to find out I lived close by a few of my blogging friends - but I think most of them live in the U.S.A. which makes it a bit more tricky to pop round for a cuppa!

Mimi said...

That's amazing!
I've had some coincidences in real life, but not in blogging. It is a small world!

Sarah Allan said...

Hi, Jen! That is quite a coincidence! Pretty awesome, though. I'm glad you decided to do the A-Z challenge, too. :-)

Jennifer Lane said...

Laura, that coincidence made me very happy! Thanks for the follow.

Linda, too bad there aren't more bloggers near you in the U.K.--you sound like a lovely person with whom to share a cuppa.

Mimi, keep at it and I bet you will. It's great to meet cyber friends in real life.

Sarah, me too! And I'll go check out your C post now.

No blogging coincidences, though I do have an amusing story about online dating, in which my now-partner asked out both of my profiles (each with its own name). We joked a bunch about how he has great taste.

A-Z @ Elizabeth Twist

Julie said...

That's unbelievable. So cool! I haven't had any coincidences like that but I so agree that we meet some of the nicest people through blogging. I never dreamed I'd be part of such a great community when I started this.

Hello, Fellow Challenger. I'm #424 from Rockin' Chair Reflections. Isn't it fun when that happens! I found my neighbor was following my blog, too, and didn't know it 'till she commented on something I had written. Small world.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Lucky you a blogger buddy was so close!

Jennifer Lane said...

Elizabeth, that's awesome. Your hubs REALLY likes you. ;)

Julie, bloggers can be very kind and friendly *points above*

Sharlene, when something like that happens to me I get a little weirded out. Sometimes it feels like the internet is much more private than it is.

Jennifer Lane said...

Alex, I do feel lucky. Nice to meet cyber friends in real life!

Judy said...

That is one of those crazy wonderful things about this world we live in! I have a similar - though weird - story :)

Dusty said...

What a neat story! Thanks for sharing! Good luck this April!

Dusty

Jennifer Lane said...

Judy, this world is indeed crazy and wonderful.

Dusty, thank you! Good luck to you in the challenge.

I don't have any coincidences myself, but that is amazing!

thanks for stopping by my blog - Happy A to Z!

Mary said...

Sometimes it's just a small world, isn't it? Jenny from Supernatural Snark is one of my very favorite blogger friends, too!

Jennifer Lane said...

Hi Baygirl, my pleasure, and thanks for returning the favor. Happy A to Z to you, too!

Mary, Jenny is wonderful! Looks like you both love dogs.

Jenny said...

That was craziness, Columbus has never felt so small:) I had a blast with you guys on Saturday and I look forward to many more such lunches!

Jennifer Lane said...

It was so fun, Jenny! Hope to get together again soon.
