In Person

Finally, it happened. After about two and a half years of fairly regular blogging, for the very first time yesterday, I met face to face a fellow-blogger whom I have come to know through blogging :-)! I guess it was only appropriate that the blogger was SK, one of the very first readers of my blog :-)!

After I met her, I realized just how familiar you can become with a person just by reading their blogs. After a single hello, we were chatting nineteen to a dozen just as if we had known each other for a very long time :-)! It was good fun to finally see in flesh and blood a person I have read about so often. A very nice experience altogether.

Which is why I am now looking forward to other such meetings :-)!

p.s. Actually there were three bloggers (including me) there - but I have known Spark from before, so he does not count. Even though he was the reason why the meeting with SK happened in the first place :-).

p.s.1. I met SK's other half, K, too - now I also know the person she writes about so often :-).

p.s.2. SK looks just like her Orkut profile pic and sounds just as sweet as she does on her audio posts :-)!

this is soooo not fair. California bloggers meet was my idea. I owned copywrite for that... how can you do this to me?

Archana said...

Ginkgo - mmmmmmm?

Joy - I have already done one of those tags. Let me see if I can add a twist to it and do it just like Archana did :-)!

Compassion unlimited - is it possible to be truly anonymous while writing a personal blog :-)?

Pratap - adhu seri! Well, you could have been the first - enna panna!
