One of my favorite bloggers, Kathy, visited New York this weekend. When she invited me to join her and her two daughters for lunch, I leapt at the opportunity. It was the first time I'd ever met anyone in person after following their blog.
The experience was delightful. It confirmed everything good I surmised about Kathy and added real depth to our understanding of each other. Your mind takes in reams of valuable information when meeting someone in person that doesn't come through a computer-screen. I really liked the experience. And I really like Kathy. Her daughters, who are adults themselves, couldn't be more charming.
Judging from Kathy's post on our meeting, it seems our experiences were similar.
Here's a picture... Have you ever met another blogger in person?
