Maud Newton is one of my Top 5 favorite online writers of all time. I started following her blog many years ago and her writing still gets me absolutely giddy about books and all things literary! When I heard that she would be coming to Penn State to be on a panel about blogging and the arts, I knew that I had to go see her.
Today not only did I attend the panel but I got to meet Maud in person and had a little conversation with her and she gave me a hug. I was so happy Kyle was with me so I could squeeze his hand all through the duration of the panel.
I felt like I was 7-years-old and just got a flashlight.
