An Impractical Reason Why Networking Counts

You know I don't get impractical very often. Frugal of money me. Frugal of time. And all that. But I'm also a real softy. I've opined on the value of networking and newsletters often. Today's post--I hope--will bring home to you the value of both and the value goes a whole lot deeper than furthering our careers or selling books. Newsletters are the ultimate networker and networking can feed the sould.  To take the connection on step further, this post is from my SharingwithWriters newsletter and I met the subject of the post (Francine Silverman) through our newsletters.

Sometimes we make great friends on the Web but we call it networking. But sometimes they turn into real friends, too. In fact, that’s what networking is all about. Fran Silverman is the authors’ guru for radio show resources. We’ve met for drinks and a trek around Egypt at a special National Geographic exhibit in Times Square. And now she has written a poem and I’m in it. (-: Can you believe? Here it is:
