Yesterday was one of those days that makes blogging even better. Four bloggers and one wife met for food and fun. On the left is your truly. Next to me is Donna who the Wind Kisses, then Marsha who’s Always Write. Behind us you’ll find John (Journey with Johnbo) and on the far right, his lovely wife Lynn.

I’ve met fellow bloggers in a variety of places in the U.S. and one epic meeting on a boat on a canal in France. Although this was a more mundane location, it was just as much fun. I also had the best corned beef hash I’ve ever had in a restaurant (although not as good as mine) and the worst mocha. Thanks to all of you for a wonderful meeting. I know we’ll be seeing each other again!

  1. So nice to see you all together! I am following all of you! 😀

    And you all wore blue so you could recognise each other? It’s a long while since I’ve done this, Janet, but I remember it as being a wonderful experience. Happy days are here again!

    Oh, brilliant! Now I can put faces to names. What fun, I’ve met a few bloggers

  5. Love you guys!
    What an opportunity!
    What a fun!
    Amazing capture!

  6. Oh, that’s awesome … I know Marsha and Donna – but less familiar with John. Hi to the Arizona contingent from Ohio.

  7. Marsha says:

    Janet, this was so much fun. I can’t wait to do it again! I’m linking this post to my WQW post today.

    It’s nice to see the faces behind the blogs. I have met bloggers in person, and it’s always fun.

  9. Ally Bean says:

    After all these years I have yet to officially meet any blogger. It’s wonderful to see this picture though. It give me hope.

    • I’m sorry I don’t still live in the Chicago area where I could more easily visit, Ally. Hopefully you’ll get a chance to meet some one of these days.

    Well Janet, was JB a rose among thorns or a thorn among roses LOL?! What a fun meeting it must have been! I’ve met a few others along the way and it’s always been terrific. Lucky you for having so many nearby! Thanks for sharing this with us.

  11. How fun! It’s especially nice you’re going to meet up again!

    Great! I‘ve never met a fellow blogger in person. But 2 friends of mine are also blogging: one writes something like a travel diary. So she writes always in the past and publishes her posts back to the date she writes about. When following her, you get a mail from the past when she publishes a new (old) post. The other one publishes only on Sundays his view on photography, exhibitions, gear, development, and so on. So, both have a very different approach.

    • I really enjoy meeting other bloggers in person but it’s also fun to meet them online.

        Back in 2020 I organized and run such online meetings via zoom. Yes, it was a lot of fun. Bloggers from Germany, US (NY, NC + SF) , Sweden, Norway, and UK wer participating. For Europe in the evening, US east-coast around noon and west-coast US late morning on a Saturday. Many of us had to stay at home, so this was possible.
