As you read people’s blogs you get a sense of knowing them. As you comment on their blog you reach out and start a dialogue that can lead to a form of friendship. It is a new sort of friendship… but, it usually stays on the web. I’ve always been intrigued by people who have created real-life friendships with their blogging friends. And, as I am sort of awkward and shy (yes, a shy girl who throws parties) I’ve never really ventured out into the real-world with my blogging friends.
(Honestly, I sort of felt like someone might think I was a stalker if I asked!)
But, this weekend I had the opportunity to meet some of the people whom I’ve been following and commenting with in the blogosphere. I also got to discover some pretty amazing ladies who have fun blogs that I now get to explore.
This last weekend I attended a Portland Blogger’s Meet-Up
(there has got to be a better name for this)
and, since there were about 20+ bloggers, there were a LOT of cameras getting shots of our meeting.
Craft supplies and nail polish so everyone could work on projects if they wanted
