RevGalBlogPals anniversary Friday Five

A totally late RevGalBlogPals anniversary Friday Five:

1) What is your first memory of the RevGalBlogPals? I saw the first book listed on Emily's blog, Hazelnut Reflections, and from time to time she'd answer these Friday Fives :)

2) Have you met any of the other ring members in real life? Actually, yes! I've met Dylan of Dylan's Grace Notes and Emily of Hazelnut Reflections.

3) Of those you haven't met, name a few you would love to know in person. This is what delayed my post! I haven't been to every member's blog yet, much less gotten a good sense of each of 170-some blogs! so I don't have a good answer to this at all. I would like to meet Rev Dr Mom, 'cause she and I are on a big email list elsewhere and I'm familiar with her 'voice.' I agree with Emily that "we Oklahoma/Texas Gals/Pals should make an effort, and soon, to find a place and time to meet." Would be cool.

4) What has Ring Membership added to your life? Since I'm in my first couple or three weeks of membership, what strikes me so far is that I am contemplating all sorts of aspects of life with faith that I hadn't been thinking about lately -- partly due to visiting member blogs and partly due to reading the RevGalBlogPals blog posts and comments. I love the new weekly cycle.

5) Describe a hope for the future of the WebRing. I'll echo Emily again: "that we find ways to meet in person" -- it's amazingly enriching to an online relationship to meet in person. When I've met even just a few people from an online community, it's been so great and has brought new energy to the community as a whole.
