There are a lot of reasons why I like Katrina Hill. She is pretty, down to earth, can hold her own in a conversation (which means she’s smart), classy, and she knows how to listen.
I have bumped into her a few times at different locations over the last couple of years. I have never made an impression with her so she doesn’t remember me. She always seemed willing to talk and never looked like a cornered rabbit as we chatted.
When I first started my blog I was trying to learn about social media. I stumbled across her website and her Twitter feed. After I followed her on Twitter, she followed back and sent a thank you. She was one of the first to follow me. I have tried to follow that example.
So I was thrilled to see she would be attending SciFi Expo as a guest. I had her book and got her to sign it. She spent a few minutes with me. The conversation skipped topics quickly. We talked SDCC and how life is different for her as a panelist compared to my life as a fanboy autograph hound. We talked about G4TV and their changes and future. I did forget to ask about the movie Bad Kids Go to Hell which she has a small part in. Next time.
I hope we bump into each other at SDCC. Of course that would be like a needle in a haystack but it’s already nice to see someone from back home.
