I'm so jealous of all the podficcers who live in the same city and can meet up!

This is really fascinating. I'm only about 15 minutes in but I'm curious what people would say to newbies who feel like they're disconnected from the community? I'm kind of... I guess, socially anxious about putting myself out there and just diving in to conversations and stuff, so I find it hard to connect. I've made some awesome podfic friends through just practical interactions like looking for a beta (and then I totally just latched on, haha) but I feel like there are so many disparate networks now that it's hard to keep up that interaction. People that I meet through challenges and stuff don't always use the same platform as me so it's hard to maintain those relationships.

Is Twitter still the best place to connect? I generally feel like I'm just shouting into the void when I try to use Twitter, but I also totally agree with finnagain that tumblr feels like a weird space for podfic and also for making friends. I'm one of the LJ people that moved to tumblr and kind of... failed at Twitter. But maybe I should try and suck it up and learn to use it :P

SO JEALOUS OF PODFICCERS WHO LIVE NEAR EACH OTHER. IT IS ENTIRELY UNFAIR *lives the wilds of Denver, CO*

I feel you on the social anxiety thing, though twitter has been really good for me in that way - I don't have to interact if I don't have to, but there's usually someone around to commiserate with over podficcing problems, or to squee over fic with, or whatever. If someone else is doing those things, I can jump in (we do a lot of podfic editing sprints, which are a great icebreaker imo), or I can just start talking and often someone chimes in.
... that was a little convoluted, and I may have lost track of my train of thought, but hopefully you can see where I'm going with it :)
There's also an effort to start up a podfic editing chatroom, that might be more your style (edited: podklb linked in the comments here http://pod-aware.dreamwidth.org/17255.html?thread=100455#cmt100455)

Yeah no, I totally see where you were going with that! I'm going to give the twitter thing a try again.
