Recently I’ve been invited to two blog meets.
As I have said before, people are multi-dimensional. And we only expose one side of ourselves in certain situations. The blog is like any online thing…it is only one dimensional. To assume you know who someone is just by reading their blogs is a bit ridiculous. While I do have some bloggers on my facebook, and I have met him and her, face to face, I would like to keep my three worlds separate. They didn’t know I was a ‘blogger’ until after I met them, which I felt a little better about.
Basically what I’m saying is that I will never attend a blog meet. Maybe not never…but definitely not now. I would agree to meet bloggers, (if they initiate) one on one…but that is it. I would not be able to look at everyone in the eyes and know that they read the crap I write, while we down barbecue wings. It’s just not going to happen.
So while some people use this as a means of creating a social network…which is cool. I use it, as a way to vent. I really do wish Mash has an awesome time here, and I wish he had more time, but sorry dude…maybe next time!
Enjoy your stay…and eat a lot before you leave k?
