That's where I was, yesterday afternoon. At OZ Park, in Chicago. A Pre-BlogHer meetup.
I was ill prepared for the meetup. Oh, I had a cooler with edibles (the grapes were well received) and my camera. But I suddenly realized I was in no position to record the names and blog addresses of those whose pictures I was taking. Phooey.
BUT! The important thing is that I was there. I met up with a former TV producer who is now a world traveler, a TV star, Employee 3699 and her better half, and Denise and Jamie and several other people whose names escape me but I have their images trapped in my camera. I will email them to denise @ blogher as soon as I dump my memory card. Perhaps she can put names to the faces.
It was really nice meeting those people. I look forward to July, and being able to meet so many more. Some I know from here, on my blog. Some, I'm sure, I haven't met yet. I'll make some new friends - hopefully not losing any old ones in the process.
