Blogging + Brunching

There’s something to be said for being a part of this blog life. It’s unlike anything else. It’s like a club of sorts. You can look up members of this club wherever you may travel. No matter where you go, you probably know a blogger there. So why not set up some bloggy dates? Well, that’s what happened this weekend. Kim of From A Wildflower + Marie of GoodLookNOut were in town and invited some ladies out over a series of blogger get togethers. I met up with them for brunch on Saturday. We met at a downtown Los Angeles restaurant called Perch. It was the perfect locale. perchThere was a jazz band playing while we noshed on goodies and sipped sangria’s.

sangria perch la bibsbaublesI’d never “met” these ladies before. I was already connected to them through their blogs and social media. You never know if the person you “know” online is the same IRL, right? Well, no disappointment here. There are just as funny and warm as I’d expect. It was easy to spend a few hours doing this!

wildflower goodlook bibsandbaublesWe talked about everything from our goals in this online life to just life – real life. I look forward to connecting with them again as we all set off on getting things out of our hearts and into the world.

That’s the thing about blogging. I have really met some awesome people just by sharing bits of my life online. I’ve made friends that I share my life with, people that I care about and that care about me. I’ve been the cheerleader for many ladies and you know what, they do the same for me. It’s really amazing. Sometimes people you meet online show you more support than people you’ve known your whole life.

What an awesome community to be a part of.

    It’s always nice to hangout with people who understand the importance of staging the perfect pictures for your blogs! I’ve only met one other blogger, and I wish there were more bloggers near me. I want to go to a meet-up or conference so much! I’m glad you had a fun time meeting up with them!

    That’s so cool that you met your blogger friends in real life! I really want to do that too. πŸ™‚ I really want to stage a meet up, I know a few of my blogging friends are in France right now, so that would be awesome! πŸ™‚

    I love when I get to meet up with blogging friends. I have a blogging bestie that we have not chatted much lately since we are both busy, but love when we get to catch up and chat and even better when we see each other.

    I’ve made some IRL connections as well through blogging, and it is one of the most amazing and fulfilling parts of it. It’s always seemed like we’ve been long-time friends too, which is so cool.

    I’m new to the blogging community, so I haven’t had a chance to meet any people in person yet. I look forward to it, though.

    I’ve met a couple of bloggers in my area and it’s been great. Only another blogger truly understands the challenges faced and what goes into blogging on a regular basis.

    I love getting together with other bloggers, no one else understands sitting at a table on your phone the whole time.

    I think making other blogging friends is so important because no one else really knows what it is that we do. I made tons of friends going to BlogHer last year and I love having friends all over the US now!

    There are so many bloggers I’d love to chill with in real life for a bit. What a fun get together, and I’m glad everyone had such a nice time!

    Although I haven’t met any bloggers, I have met others during a networking group that I am a member. It is nice to meet other mompreneurs.

    Isn’t it so cool when you meet your blog friends in real life? I’ve met a few and we don’t even talk blogging when we get together. We just laugh and have a great time!

    Listening to a good jazz band while I sip some wine and enjoy some good food is one of my favorite things to do. I can’t wait to move a little closer to the city so I can experience these things again. I like the country, but I hate the drive.

    It is so nice to network with bloggers face to face. It’s so rare to find people that GET what you do!

    That is so nice you all can hang out! I have made some GREAT friends from blogging. Some I’ve met at conferences and other are on-line friends, but just as dear to me. I speak to them more than some family members!
