Blogfest: Meeting People I've Already Met

And so a group of Prescott bloggers who knew each other only via the Internet met one another in person for the first time Saturday over at The Raven Cafe. Thanks to Andrew of Coyote Radio, who master- minded the whole shebang.

A fascinatingly diverse bunch of people it was. And they represented very different points of view and interests! For instance, travel and the outdoors...

...personal life (here ... here)...

...local politics ... the media ... and critiquing the media... Not two mention two photography bloggers (here ... here) as well as one writer.

The final touch: everyone was interviewed by Coyote Radio for the Prescott Arts Beat podcast and radio broadcast (on 89.5 FM -- hey, Andrew, what day and what time?)

Maybe a third of the local bloggers were present; here's a local who's who on-line. (One of these days, I'll finally pull myself together to post my own blogroll of local, Arizona and worldwide blogger friends.) We're planning to meet again a month from now; I'll keep you posted.

What a wonderful gathering! Would have liked to be a fly on the wall!

Steve -- it's always good to meet people who you've corresponded with (or talked to) from afar!

Hi, CRT -- I'll switch over from KNAU for the show!

Welcome back, Lane -- you couldn't have lasted more than 5 minutes up on that wall and out of things!

Chickenbells said... was wonderful to see you again, I can't wait until our next gathering!

Hello there Sadira -- yes, indeed, it was a great gathering & I'm also looking forward to the next one. Hope that some of our missing friends will also be able to make it.
