A few weeks later Suzanne emailed. She had, not only a blog button, but a definite rah rah pitter patter and let’s get at er vibe going on. And…about eleventy hundred emails later…we had ourselves a blogger meet-up.
Suzanne and Melanie did the lion’s share of the work. Me? I panicked. Enthusiasm for something that’s never gonna happen…I’m good at that. But an actual, for real, blogger meet-up? It sounded…scary. Why? Because inviting everybody to your house is scary. I mean, what if everybody comes? What if nobody comes? What if everybody comes and nobody has a good time? Clearly I have some insecurities when it comes to entertaining on a grand scale….and…maybe I neglected to mention that little fact over lunch. No matter, Suzanne and Melanie soldiered on…Suzanne pounding on the keyboard, Melanie pounding on the pavement. My designated role was to be the voice of reason, otherwise known as the third vote. There may have been one, possibly two, moments when I stamped my tiny foot….the champagne fountain and complementary 40+ Blogger terry robes come to mind…but seriously, our vision was united from the get-go.
And? I think we pulled it off. I know I had a stellar time. I hope you did too. I really, really, enjoyed getting to know you better and I thank you from the very bottom of my heart for coming. Planes, trains and automobiles. Bloggers from BC, Toronto, New York, Utah, Florida, Washington State, California, Chicago, The Netherlands, Finland and Singapore. Who’d a thunk it?
Will it happen again? You know you wanna…..
