Meeting in Person

Blogging and the interaction of social communities is the foundation to the blogosphere’s success. But one thing that doesn’t happen to often is meeting other bloggers face-to-face and only recently have I begun to get out there and professionally socialize with other bloggers in the community.

I have met most of the founders from ActiveRain and one from Social Media Systems but haven’t extended it more due to work and other obligations. But on Thursday the 17th, I had the opportunity to meet up with a blogger from Las Vegas News blog for lunch while spending some time in Las Vegas. It gave us more time to ask questions and pursue discussions in a shorter time frame than what usually happens in the blogosphere.

Social networking is nothing new but blogging has given people another avenue to connect on and I encourage anyone who has taken up blogging to get connected to also get out and meet other bloggers face-to-face. Start small by asking someone to a cup of coffee at the local Starbucks and let the conversation begin.
