Ho-Ho-Ho, to a coffee house we will go…and a handful of bloggers did it.
Thanks to Jimmy’s invitation and initiative, a small group of bloggers gathered this afternoon in the grand meeting room of the Coffee Exchange at Grant & Campbell.
If you were there, thanks for coming. If you missed it, then seriously consider making the time and showing up if another opportunity arises.
From my perspective, this time was well spent and I left there with an unanticipated comfortable feeling of unity, an erasure of anonymity that so often pervades the stealthy world of blogging.
Admittedly, the head count wasn’t impressive, but the variety of topics offered for conversation and pursued with thoughtful input by everyone more than compensated for the turnout.
I appreciated the openness and candor of expression by my fellow blogger attendees. I didn’t hear any comments that gave me the impression that anyone was putting on a show or attempting
to be someone (something) that wasn’t genuine. That alone was a refreshing break from today’s commonplace “public poser” mentality.
It was a pleasure meeting all of you in person. I wish each of you a safe and pleasant holiday season and a happy and gainful New Year.
