When exactly did I meet Melisa? Did we like each other instantly? Or did she raise her eyebrows in confusion at that weird and loudspoken blogger chick (me) who sometimes swears a little too loudly after a few martinis at BlogHer?
Did we exchange more than a brief nod of Chicago blogger camaraderie? Did we know then, on some level, that we'd become friends? That we'd forge into a new territory that would bond not only the two of us, but also (potentially) dozens and dozens of fellow writers through LTYM?
