It’s especially fun when people have goofy online screen names. I’ve had conversations very similar to this:
“Are you Bloodplasm? I’m qsysue. This is Sparklemama, Anchovie, and sludgeking2004.”
Last Thursday I was at a show at a restaurant/bar, and I had two different people come up to me, asking, “Are you Sue?” One was a guy I’ve talked music with on Facebook. Another was a guy from a music web forum I post on. I’ve had that experience at shows a lot—almost always someone from the music web forum. (I’ve met more people from the music forum than any other place—just about any show I go to, I’m liable to know someone who is there, via that forum.)
I’ve only met one person in real life via LDS blogs, Mike D. Who isn’t technically a blogger, but he comments. I did once figure out that someone else commenting on the blogs was in my ward, but he ended up deciding to quit the blogs.
I am going to be having lunch this week with a bunch of women LDS bloggers, though, almost all of whom write solo blogs. I’ll try to report back.
I know there’s lots of bloggersnackers being planned in different areas right now. MikeinWeHo tried to get one going in LA and I think I was the only response he received. Where are all the LA bloggers?
So who have you met via the Internet, and how did it go? I know some of my co-bloggers had a get together awhile back.
Everyone I’ve met via the Internet has been super cool. I think online, people tend to be a bit more opinionated or obnoxious that they are in real life. Someone you might think is a complete jerk online can be very nice in real life. Funny how that works.
