Its amazing really when you realise that the longer you hang out online, the more you realize how small the internet community is. Sure there are millions of people online, but there are tight communities people hang in. I do run into people I know in different forums all the time, even those looking for probate advance. It is not the first time too as it happens all the time, which is actually a good thing. That is the part of doing business online. By building relationships online, you also build personal relationships with some. You share personal experiences. You help each other through good and bad times. If you have not already done so, find a good forum to hang around. There are some bad ones, but if you look, you’ll find the good ones. Just start hanging around. You’ll start to get to know the people. Then you can start participating or just jump in.
There are forums for everything. Whatever you’re involved in. If you got a career, theres a forum for it. If you have a hobby, there’s a forum for it. Some forums that would be great to explore are forums such as Digital Point, Webmaster Malaysia, Bismika Allahuma Forums and many others. These days I participate in mostly internet marketing, tech, and other business related forums. Beyond relationships, you can learn endless things from such forums, mostly things which are based on experience. It’s better than a textbook as it is interactive and if you ask, there is usually someone waiting with an answer. You can search databases of threads that could contain untold information.
