Rehashing the Blogger Meet Up

I went to a blogger meet-up last night and as always, was fascinated by the group dynamics of these events. In my normal life I pretty much hang out with librarians. I like librarians. I understand librarians (unless they are men and then there is that dumb as a post thing that happens to me when trying to communicate with them). We think alike, we talk alike and that is a very comfortable place for me to be.

Anyway, what is interesting and challenging about going to the blogger meet-ups is how diverse the group is. You have everything from political to general rants about life bloggers and everything in between. I liked some of the bloggers immediately, others will take a while to get to know and there may be one or two out there that I never warm to. That is what is so interesting about this particular group. I also love how much it changes from meet-up to meet-up depending on who attends.

So in the little group of potential new friends that I got to bond with, we spent time talking about freaky porn (as opposed to regular porn) and yes, trust me, there is a big difference!, trips, books and music. We also talked about all of you who weren’t there and pondered why “you” weren’t at the meet-up. FYI: We miss you guys!

Most of the bloggers seemed just like their blog (maybe a little quieter or louder in person) but overall, just like I pictured them. One blogger, however, who I didn’t have a chance to meet but glimpsed down the table from me, was not how I pictured her at all. I have to say, I admire (and am a little jealous) of her ability to jump into activities in a new town with both feet. Welcome to KC, Keri Oke.
