I have been away for awhile my dear Hooked on Tonics. I apologize, my life has been unusually hectic lately. You’d be surprised how time-consuming eating your weight in miniature eclairs can be.
I am very excited to be back not only because I
am very attracted to love all of you, but because I have been scheming with everyone’s favorite redhead, Becca from 25toFly. You see, she and I noticed a trend happening in the WordPress community. Bloggers were taking their online friendships, and making them offline friendships.
Then Harry met Sally.
Everyone blogged how fun it was to
have an orgy hang out with their blog-turned-real life friends. I saw photos of eating, drinking, and tomfoolery of the best kind. I wanted to get me a piece of that.
After Vyv and Jill met, one of them posted on Facebook about it, and in the comment thread I casually mentioned that we should have a blogger meetup. I was half serious, but I was also half distracted by the Real Housewives of Miami marathon that was on television.
A shortly while later, I received an e-mail from Becca:
You’re smart, like Stephen Hawking smart. You’re also the best blogger WordPress has ever seen. I also think you’re incredibly beautiful, and if I was a man, I’d put a ring on it.
By the way, we should seriously host a blogger meetup.
Your #1 Fan,
And this is why I’m here. Becca and I want to organize an official blogger meetup (or meetups) so that we can meet our favorite people behind the words we read on the screen.
All we need you to do is answer the following questions in the comment section:
1. Would you be interested in attending a blogger meetup?
2. What is the closest metropolitan area to you?
3. Which areas would you be willing to travel to if we had a meetup in a location other than your own?
That’s it, seriously. I mean, if you want to donate blood, semen or a kidney we’ll gladly take those too, but all that is required is 30 seconds of your time. (Note: If you don’t feel comfortable putting your location in the comments section, e-mail me at email@example.com)
Please head on over to Becca’s post and thank her for making my off-handed comment a reality.
