So, I AM meeting up with Swirl Girl and Insane Mama... I feel pretty confident that neither is a serial killer.
This will be a first for me, meeting peeps from bloggyland...
Have you guys met up with anyone from this alternative universe? Would you?
I live pretty close to One Crazy Chick...I might consider coming out of my shell for her someday...but I wouldn't go sober...we'd probably meet at Starbucks with our laptops and blog "live".
Totally love Insane Mama AND Swirl Girl though. Sounds like a fun time...drunk.
Unless you count meeting Florence Henderson when I was like 8 a meeting with someone from another universe.
Let's DO it!
I can add nothing to this, or take away from it. 'Cause YOU KNOW.
You know. And you are my people. And I so love you. Scott does, too...just so you know.
Libbey will be Mrs. R. Oh but yes, she will.
What I would like to do is plan a cross country road trip and just stay at whatever blog reader's place would let me. I'd bring Ben and Jerry's and play "Oh Susannah!" on my harmonica as payment, and I'd have some great stories to tell when I got back. Or I'd be a beautiful corpse if I picked the WRONG blogger to stay with....
GO--meet them! I'd love to learn more about both of them anyway!
I've been on a few of what my husband calls "blog dates" and I talk to several on the phone and through IM. WAY fun.
I say go for the blog dates my friend!
Go for it!
Good luck to you. How will we know if you are dead? Will someone update us on your blog?
Sounds like fun though. Nerve wracking, but fun. go for it!
I met three of them while I was on a business trip and happened to be in their state and the other, I actually flew out to her house and stayed with her (with my 18 month old child) for a long weekend. We had a BLAST!!!!!
But I do agree...the sometimes people can be one way in writing and another way in person. That isn't a bad thing...you can just say a lot more of what is on your mind when you are writing it out...
I've met a few women from some online parents groups. I really felt like I knew them from our online relationship... more so than I thought I would.
You'll have a blast!
I did take my DD and flew for the weekend to KS to visit with a girl I have chatted with on msg boards for years. We BOTH had crazy serial killer thoughts while waiting for the plan to land and the taxi to deliever me to her house. We were afraid the taxi driver was going to go off with my DD and I (in my defense it was after midnight and I was tired). Needless to say it was a WONDERFUL weekend and I'd do it again in a heartbeat if I could afford to.
I have in the past and I've had a couple of bad experiences ... one of them really bad. It's okay, these weren't people from any blogs, but I did meet them online through a BBS.
In RL, I'm the same person that you see here. I'm pretty open, I'm friendly , I don't care where you live or what socio-economic group you belong to and I don't judge you by what you look like or where you come from or what you do. I like people and I like listening to and watching them.(Ye Gods, tht makes me sound like some type of stalker !!)
There are certainly people here, in blogland, that I'd love to meet, but at the same time I'm a little wary...and I really hate that !!
IDK, I think I always worry about that, I'm not much of a small talk person.
Have fun and let us know how it goes!!!
I've met several mom's IRL - Hot Tub Lizzy and Mel from Reinventing the wheel. Both are WONDERFUL ladies and I'm blessed to have them in my life.
(Hey, wait a minute... this kinda' sounds like a fun idea, right?)
found you through SITS, nice to meet you :)
nah, don't go. Just kidding- go, have fun and don't get yourself killed cuz we know who done it if you don't come back.
I am lucky enough to be in the same city with two bloggers, we were actually buds before we were blogging so it is weird to have known them and when we all happen to be at the same event (because our kids are in the same school) we are all doing bloggy gossip!
Uh huh, there are flesh and blood people standing all around us and we are talking about all of the rest of you that we've never met. Even you Mrs. R, even you.
My induction into bloggyland happened because of a blogger get together. I read about Bossy's Road Trip on her blog: iambossy.com. I thought it would be fun & interesting to meet her and some other ladies.
Just to make myself a little more legit - I started a blog the night before the shindig. And I haven't looked back since.:)
