Well, that's where it was this past weekend.
The Blogmeet, that is.
After having been involved in the blogosphere since late '03, I finally managed to find my way to an actualy, by-golly Blogmeet. Now, I've met quite a few bloggers in the past few years, what with shooting events, hangin' with the DuToits and entertaining a few blog writers as they drifted through Galveston County on their journeys.
Met a few non-blogging blog readin' people, too. (Hi, Recondo & Georgia!) who made time to see me as they ventured from this adventure to the next.
So, as Iris and I rolled over the miles t'ween here and Kerrville, I had no doubt that we'd be meeting some good folks. Of course, I'd met Denny once at Kim's, and having written and yakked with him over the phone with some frequency, it wasn't a stretch to say I knew I'd have at least one friend a'waiting.
Well, I was wrong.
There were plenty of friends.....just ones I hadn't met yet!
That's been rectified, and in fine style let me hasten to say. And that style wasn't just 'cause we were at The Inn of the Hills in Kerrville, Texas....which is one of the most well-established, and yet still one of the very finest venues one could ever wish to visit. Being in such a lush and beautiful location provided the perfect backdrop to a meeting of a dozen or so expositors of the written word, all of whom give life to their thoughts via the keyboard and flying electron.
And what a mix of writers this was, varying from myself, a rabid gunbloggin', politic pickin', bourbon sippin and cigar ravin' cranky old keyboardist, all the way across the scale to a lady who personified the most genteel of spirits, lovingly tending to both her garden of plants, and her thoughts, harvested fresh to her screen.
Now, rather than me trying to write one-by-one profiles, (which from me, would probably not even resemble the real people involved), let me just point y'all to their own blogs, and you get to know 'em your own self.
I think if you do, you just might want to end up attending the next Blown Eyed Blodger roundup.
Update: You'd think that since I stole that list from El Capitain, that I'd at least have the good sense to have included him in my efforts?
You'd be wrong. Damn, sorry there Pirate....next time, put your own blog in your lists so when I steals 'em, I don't have to bemember quite so hard now, hear? shuffles off muttering to self..........
Like I said earlier. I am inded, truly honored to have met y'all!
Here's to next year!
