A classic tale of Mann meets Manley
Once upon a time (in 2010), Jaime Lee Mann and Christine Gordon Manley were virtual strangers. The pair followed one another on Twitter, but they had no relationship beyond the odd mention or retweet here and there.
One day towards the end of May, Jaime noticed that Christine was celebrating the anniversary of moving into her forever home in Cornwall. It turned out to be the very same thing that was being celebrated at the Mann residence in Morell.
Jaime and Christine started to realize that they had a lot in common.
They were the same age, they shared many common interests, they even shared a love affair with dresses (and owned a few of the exact same ones!) . . . but most of all, Jaime was a freelance copywriter and Christine a freelance editor. Then, of course, there was the little matter of their last names being Mann and Manley. What were the odds?
When the pair met in person for the first time at the PEI Tweet Up in June 2010, they started chatting as if they’d been best friends for 20 years. Jaime and Christine started talking about their work—writing and editing—when Jaime joked that they should start a business and call it Manley Mann Media.
Well, two months almost to the exact date of their first meeting, that’s just what they did.
The rest, as they say, is history.

So, if it weren’t for Twitter bringing Jaime and Chris together, the world (wide web) would be a much less fun place to be, dontcha think?
