(Thanks to those of you who expressed interest in receiving a copy of my paper - I'm not ignoring you, will email off Thurs evening!)
Wow, if you thought I bought a lot of books at the weekend, wait til you see how many I got on Wednesday with Claire (who, remembering her luggage allowance, was rather more circumspect). That's for another day, though. For today I'll just show off this photo of me meeting Claire (taken by Darlene - who joined us for dinner, giving me the delight of seeing her twice in one week.)
Tonight, tired, and having succumbed to the inevitable cold (all my housemates have it - it was only a matter of time) I just wanted to write a quick question...
This is to all the bloggers who have met other bloggers in person. I can say, without hesitation, that all the bloggers I've met have been lovely, Claire being (of course) no exception. But what does change quite a lot is how similar or different they are to/from how I imagined them. Some bloggers - perhaps especially Karen and Thomas - were exactly how I'd envisioned them. Others, while lovely, were lovely in a whole other way that I'd anticipated.
I've been lucky - I've met probably 30-35 bloggers in person (I'll have to do a proper count sometime) so I can make these sorts of statements - but I'd love for you to answer, if you can! How have your face-to-face blogger-to-blogger meetings gone?
And, for an even smaller group of respondents... was I how you imagined I'd be, when you met me?!
