Today was the 1st ever Blogographer’s Meet-Up! And I learned some valuable lessons to apply before our next meet-up:
- Get REALLY specific about where to meet.
- Wear a neon sign on my head so everyone can find me.
Ken and I waited by the Marietta Welcome Center (and the Cool Bean Coffee Shop) from about 10am until about 11:30am, but never found any of the bloggers we expected to be there. Finally, we just went wandering around the Farmer’s Market.
We bought yummy-smelling homemade soaps, some honey from the same man who did our honeybee presentation a few weeks ago, and had lunch at the Vineyard Cafe. I met some sweet greyhounds, and a very B-I-G dog named Navarre who had just finished his therapy-dog visits to a nursing home.
But still no bloggy friends. 🙁
But when I got home, I had an email checking to see if I was okay since they never found me. Fortunately, the did find a few other bloggy friends, and sent me a photo taken by one of the husbands:
I’m so sad I missed meeting you ladies!
So how ’bout this: since several folks who wanted to come had to cancel last minute, and since I was unintentionally incognito, let’s do this again soon. If you are in the area (or will be in the next couple of months), please send me an email with the upcoming Saturdays you are available for another meet-up, and we’ll do this again.
But next time, I’m applying those above-learned lessons!
