Blogger Meet Up

I went to the Michigan Blogger Meet Up yesterday evening. It was fun to meet a bunch of my fellow bloggers in person, especially ones whose work I've been following for awhile.

I got to meet the legendary Hockey Dino (who blogs about "truth, sports, liberty, and chicks") and discovered that I went to high school with his brother.

I also got to meet Lori of Living La Vida Lori and Melissa of Rock and Drool. They each blog about their life as a Mom - along with books, beer, and whatever else they happen to think about.

Oh, and I would be remiss if I didn't mention the joy of seeing Shondira of Intense Auburn again.

Besides hanging out with some folks who are a lot like me (you may extend your sympathy to them), we also shared a few tips on the fine art of blogging. The fruit of those tips will likely be seen more over on my neighborhood blog. I kind of like the pure randomness of this one.

Finally, because everyone had so much information about them on their name tags, I actually found myself saying, "I'm not staring at your boobs. I'm just reading your name tag" to one of my fellow bloggers.

I'm just glad that she didn't smack me. Granted, it will probably become a blog post for her, but that's always a given.

I Blog, Therefore I Am

Anyway, there will likely be another one of these next month. I'm looking forward to it already.

Love it!

How cool! I live about two hours from one of my blog buddies....I can't imagine meeting any of them. It would be a blast. Lucky you! Glad you had fun. And I'm impressed you were actually reading the name tags. Even if you weren't, it gave you a legit reason to stare, so you had a graceful out, lol!

@Shondira: Gracias!

@Words: It was uber-cool.

Oh, and you should know that I'm addicted to reading whatever is front of me.

The Words Crafter said...

Oh! hahahaha, that could be really funny!

Oh, you wouldn't believe how awkward this addiction of mine is. I'll give you a simple example and let you figure it out from there.

Did you know that most dancers in strip clubs have tatoos?

And that a shocking number of said tatoos include words?

Yeah, it can lead to some funny situations that I will have to include in a screenplay and/or novel at some point.

Bacon

I actually read pretty much anything in front of me, too. When I eat cereal, I read the whole box. I read bumper stickers and, well, you have to get really close to a vehicle to do that. I love looking at tattoos, so I could see how that could be, um, interesting!

@Dino: Don't get me started on bacon, young man.

@Words: It's nice to know that I'm not the only compulsive reader.
