Bloggy Friends: Up Close and Personal

I've been a hopeless blogger this summer. Sorry! Between gymnastics and summer activities, I'm having a hard time keeping up.

But I did want to stop in to tell you something so fun: I get to see Janet Johnson tomorrow!

She's stopping by my house and staying with us on her way to the Oregon Coast with her family. I even get to meet her kids.

And when Janet and I get together, you better believe there's going to be some hacky sack action going on, since we're co-founders of the Hacky Sack Club. Stay tuned for the craziness!!

I'm so excited. I've met a few of my bloggy friends in person, but most of you I only know online.

Have you ever met any of your bloggy friends or critique partners in person? Was it a good experience?

  6. We used to meet in person at Pen and Ink. Right now, I am in Michigan and Lupe is in Northern Ca. But we'll will all be tighter at SCBWI in August. Much more fun than Skyping.

  8. I'm not going to pretend I'm not jealous. :) You guys enjoy your time together!
    The only blog friend I've met in person (that I didn't know in person already) was Molly Hall (whose blog I miss terribly, by the way, in case she reads this comment!). We just happened to be at the same conference, and I heard someone call "Faith!" across the room. :)

  9. I have met a few blogger friends in real life, and I am actually HOSTING my critique partner. We met through Twitter but nevertheless...online buddies :D She is coming to the East coast for the first time from Seattle (she's the Rachel that snagged Molly Jaffa as an agent), and I am excited to meet her beyond the phone calls/texting/package sending we do. Sounds like you & Janet will have a great time!!!!

  11. I've only gotten to meet one online friend and it was wonderful! It was great to be able to give her a real hug after all the virtual hugs we shared over the years.

    I hope you and Janet have fun together!

  12. Hi Amy .. that's great and must have been so much fun .. or the kids have destroyed the house, or you and Janet are still in the Hacky Sack club as the booze hasn't run out yet?!

    Looking forward to the update .. cheers Hilary
