Bloggers- Current and Past - In The Flesh
I started blogging - as a guest blogger for Stephen, AkA Uncle Bert, while he went on holiday one summer. We had known Stephen for years, and he asked for fill in bloggers one summer and I volunteered. Bert is in London. Bert somehow knew Kel who was blogging at the time as was her husband of Bob AkA Woodchuck. Kel and Bob lived in the Pacific Northwest. He traveled a lot on business. When we learned that he was going to be in Louisville on work, we decided to take to plunge and meet a blogger in person that we had only ever known over the internet. (Following that?) We met for dinner at the Marker's Mark restaurant - talked for 2 or 3 hours and had a great time. We joked that it was nice to meet a blogger in person, and discover that they are not an ax murderer.
When we were in Seattle for the Cruise to Alaska in 2008, Bob and Kel drove in for a visit. After I moved to DC, Kel and Bob moved to northern Indiana. We have visited them in Chicago, they came for our wedding. Here they are in Chicago late last month.
There are others, I went to last Blogger Palozza, and met several bloggers. I visited with Michael AkA Spo when I was in Phoenix for a conference and met his someone. I am planning to stop in Phoenix on a trip in November. I owe Anne Marie a visit in Philly - someday soon - I promise.
We make virtual friends on our blogs. Nearly every blogger I have met in the flesh has been just what you would expect. I hope to meet a few more of them.
What blogger would you like to meet in person?
