Blog Meet

Well we had our Paris/France Blog Meet last night. There was a good turnout... about 15 or 20 people. Many Pink Cosmopolitans were drunk. There is a list below of those who showed up.. if I forgot someone, let me know. Thanks to Petite Anglaise, who organized the event.

Despite a common concern about meeting people in person that we've been talking to daily on our blogs...no worries....it was really fun. The Paris/France bloggers are a ... friendly, nice, welcoming group of people. It was really interesting putting faces and blogs together. For me, most matched up as I imagined, but there were one or two surprises. We did miss Jason, who had left Paris the day before.

Last night was a great success, and as such, I'm sure it will be repeated. So for those of you who couldn't come to this event... you better get there next time. No excuses!

I am so sad I missed the event last night. I thought about all of you guys (or ladies as the case may be) yesterday.

So, who fell down first? It probably would have been me if I had been there.

How nice that you all met! I think it would be a little weird to put faces with blogs - in fact, what a fun icebreaker game! At least for dorks like myself. ;)

I know there are quite a few Chicago bloggers who live in my neighborhood. Sometimes I wonder if anyone on my bus or in the coffee shop or walking down the street are bloggers whose sites I enjoy reading.

Pat, Thanks. It was fun chatting with you too.
Jason, We really did miss you. I can't answer your question because I was the first blogger to leave... had to get the kids.
Pismire, I doubt you're a dork!

I have met 3 bloggers so far, and I will say that each time has been a wonderful experience! I'm glad it was the same for you!

Flare, Sorry we didn't get to chat more... but it was such a good turnout!
Margie, Yes, all the bloggers I've met have been really fun. You do worry so...

Margie, Just to be clear... I didn't mean you personally. I meant that a person never knows what to expect from an online friend, but I've been pleasantly surprised with my blogging friends.
