it started with hello

Thank you to Lindt for sponsoring today's post, inspiring me to try Lindt HELLO chocolate and giving my readers the chance to win sweet prizes! All opinions are my own.

Remember when it wasn't socially acceptable to meet people on the Internet {and that god awful dial up noise}? Yeah, that was so 1999. Today, I wouldn't have an entire group of friends if it wasn't for the Internet. It's still weird for me when people I know in real life find out I have a blog, and it's weird to explain to people how I met this group of women.

When I first started blogging a few years ago, Shawn was weirded out by the whole thing. I had to bribe him to stay home and not escort me to my first blogger meet up {I'm kidding, but he was nervous about me going}. I was nervous too, mostly because I was worried about my outfit, and because way back in a tiny fold of my brain I could still hear my parents warning me about talking to strangers on AIM and ICQ.

But we all know that bloggers aren't really strangers. We pour our hearts into our little slices of the interwebs, so if we just follow along for a month or two, we're all practically BFFs. We build friendships through comments and by exchanging hellos via email. I've made connections with people across the country, yet I am constantly reminded of how small this world can seem. And sometimes it's crazy to think how life-changing a simple "hello" can be.

Speaking of making connections, Lindt HELLO chocolate wants to help you make sweet connections with your loved ones or someone new!

Lindt HELLO chocolate is a new collection from Lindt, inspired by classic desserts and treats. This new chocolate from Lindt comes in bars, sticks and mini-stick bags. I picked up some HELLO chocolate bars and mini-stick bags at Target this weekend, and I've tried the Cookies and Cream and the Caramel Brownie. Friggin' delicious. I mean it's chocolate. From Lindt. You can't go wrong! With Halloween coming up, if you feel the urge to put together some goodie bags for your friends or kids, be sure to include some Lindt HELLO chocolate.

This is so true! We get to know each other through commenting and our shared passion. It takes hard work to blog regularly and I respect those (like you) who put in the effort. Lately, I've been making the choice to meet my online blogger-friends in person and every single one has been wonderful. As I'm sure you are, too!

I haven't made it to my first meet up yet, but hope to one day soon! It's amazing how close you can get to fellow bloggers in such a short period of time.

I just had my first blogger meet-up this summer! I was worried that we wouldn't have anything to talk about, but we chatted all through dinner like we knew each other. Which, I guess we kind of do! Funny how that works :) ~Ree
