Thankful for Local Bloggers
This week I’m so thankful for having finally had the chance to meet some local bloggers.
Up until now I had been pottering around on my own and hadn’t met any other bloggers in person.
Except for my husband who is my blogging buddy, IT guru and blog designer rolled into one – he is indeed awesome but maybe family shouldn’t count in this case?
Anyway, I felt it was time to move outside my comfort zone and meet some others who shared and understood my love of blogging and social media.
So when Lisa (Madam Bipolar) organised a meet-up for Newcastle, Hunter Valley and Central Coast bloggers I took the plunge and RSVP’d before I could talk myself out of it.
I was still determined to attend even after I found out that my husband would be away on a school camp which meant I needed to arrange childcare for my three little bears in order to go.
But I did go. And I did have a great time. And I did meet some great people.
I now know some people who will also be going to DPCON12 in Melbourne in a few weeks time, which will make my first formal foray into the blogosphere a little bit less intimidating.
So…Lisa, Debbie, Marissa, Alyssa, Caz, Zoey, Siobhan, Stephanie, Rachel, Linda…it was a pleasure to meet you all, thanks so much for a great night!
It’s comforting and exciting and motivating to know that there are so many amazing bloggers so close at hand.
Hopefully, from this first meet-up we’ll be able to build a local community of bloggers – and that’s something for which I’m truly thankful.
Joining in for Thankful Thursday with Kate Says Stuff – I would love to know what you are thankful for today!
