Well my Google Reader is now officially out of control. Don't believe me? I have proof.
Can you read that I have 317 new items???? That's crazy! The reason for that is that tonight I attended DC Blogger Blitz hosted by the fabulous Alison from Long Distance Loving. I emailed Alison this summer after she wrote a post about sun safety and she was so kind to email me a recommendation for a dermatologist in DC. Well, we got a chance to meet tonight and speak briefly and let me tell you, she is just as genuine in person as she seems on her blog. What a sweetheart!
Alison was kind enough to instigate and plan the whole blogger get together. She made some fab name tags and directories so all the bloggers could find each other's blogs after the event. I'm really really excited to start reading some more local-to-me- blogs! I will also add these lovely blogs to my "DC Bloggers" tab over on the right side of my blog. I hope you will follow some of these lovely women. It was great to get out of the house and meet some new folks.
This is the second time I have attended a local bloggers get-together and I have to say that I'm continuously impressed by the bloggers I've met. Most of the people are so genuine and lovely! I'm so impressed by these women who can come up with creative and fun content all the time.
I think it is important to remember that when you read a blog, you are only seeing a very small part of someone's life. I imagine that it can be easy to forget that, especially if you are a blog reader but don't have a blog that you write or edit. For me, blogging is 100% a fun hobby and I'm so glad that I've been able to make a few "real life" connections with fellow bloggers.
Cheers to all the bloggers who are now reading along after Blogger Blitz DC! I hope you will find something worthwhile on this blog.
