Meeting Up

When I started this blog several years ago, I was writing for myself. I didn’t know if anyone would read and certainly didn’t expect much to come from it. This online space was simply a place for me to put my thoughts into words. I never imagined the connections I would make here, that people who wrote blogs I really enjoyed would become tried and true friends. Over the years, I’ve met a wide array of bloggers and each time I come away from those meetings feeling happy that I can move that particular person from the “to be met” category into the “yay we met” one.  These meetings always involve great conversation and great fun.

This past weekend I was able to move another friend from the “to be met “ category. LovelyAnomaly and her husband were traveling for the holidays and happened to be driving through my area. We met up in a nearby town across the river from my hometown. We enjoyed lunch and poked around an eclectic old book shop with narrow aisles and the Juno soundtrack on loop. Before departing the historic downtown area, we picked up some cupcakes for later consumption and parted ways. In good blogger fashion, of course there were pictures. 

If you have met up with other bloggers, then you know the connections that can be made and how meeting up is just yet another fantastic result of blogging. If you haven’t met up with other bloggers;  What are you waiting for? Go and do. You won’t be disappointed. 

What bloggers are in your "to be met" category?
