So far we have met 472 crusaders as participants on the team. Of these, I have met only 26 in real life. I have made some truly special friends because of this platform. Some I may still meet, and some I may never get to see, but that doesn't diminish the value of the friendship. I have always said, the street team has allowed us to connect with people we might not have otherwise met.
It's true that I wouldn't recognize some of you in passing since you don't share your likeness on your site. In fact, Crusade No. 58 ~ Girls on Film, where we were to share photos of ourselves, and take the opportunity to get in front of the camera instead of always being the photographer, clocked in the record low for participation with only nine links (which included me). Your faces may not trigger recognition, but your art, your style, your online persona, your perspective shared through words and visuals, have become something I CAN recognize.
