While blogging in itself is a lonely activity it does have some unexpected social benefits.
London can be a lonely place - especially when your friends leave you thanks to expired Youth Mobility Visas - but blogging and Tweeting helps make the city feel smaller as you connect with a random collection of souls online from across this fair land.
Tomorrow I shall meet a selection of these people in person - many for the first time.
The wonderful Selena from Oh, the place we will go! Has organised a Bloggers Afternoon Tea at the Mercer Street Hotel, Covent Garden - I love these organising types who make things happen.
My delightful companions will be...
