Getting To Know: Blogger BFFs

Back in the early 2000s, I asked my mother if I could go to the mall with a girl that I met through Neopets.com. Though we talked via MSN webcam(?!) and had each other’s phone numbers (which corresponded to our Nokia flip phones), my mother was incredibly wary of endangering her only daughter with a “most definitely dangerous” internet personality. Alas, I retreated back to the safe haven that was my PC; our friendship guarded by Neopets forums and parental controls.

Fast forward a decade: A surge in online personalities have (mostly) done away with the former “everyone on the internet is bad” stigma. Though this is arguable, having like-minded people interested in similar things typically connotes to strong online communities spearheading automatic friendships. In the blogosphere, this is especially the case, as fashion people doing fashion things creates a general consensus somewhere along the lines of being ~trusting~ and ~open-minded~ in regards to others who also spend their days taking pictures of themselves. After all, if you know what they look like, they must be friendly and non-threatening, right?

As it stands now, a few of my closest comrades are people I’ve met through the internet – and if you read on, you’ll meet Rachel and RachelBobby and JennChloe and Andrew, and Peter and Bethany – four duos whose friendships originated online, progressed to IRL scenarios, and are currently on their way to becoming lasting #BFF encounters! read more…
