On Saturday, I was lucky enough to actually sit with — and even talk to! — some of my all-time favorite bloggers. BAC of Yikes! organized a Blogger Meetup in DC as part of the annual meeting of Americans United for Separation of Church and State. (It turns out that FranIAm is quite the paparazzi (paparazzo?), so head on over to her place for lots of photos of the Meetup.)
All my friends wanted to know “Did you meet DCup?” And to borrow a phrase from the President Elect, let me say, “Yes I did!” I also met the incomparable Tengrain from Mock, Paper, Scissors, who received the “Postie” Award for his brilliant blogging efforts. And there were also some other bloggers whose comments I have read at some of these sites but I must admit, whose blogs I had not visited. Of course that will change after having met Dr. Zauis of Zaius Nation and DistributorCap of distributorcapNY.
What was it like, you say? Well, it was a little bit like the Algonquin Roundtable on speed. And actually, not really snarky at all. But I think at almost all times there was a minimum of 3 conversations going on at the table where I was sitting. And of course I wanted to hear what everyone was saying! That was way more social interaction than I usually do on a Saturday afternoon, and I think I’m still recovering from trying to keep up with these folks. But I completely enjoyed myself, and gained lots of ideas for future posts.
