I've been blogging for a little over four years. On Saturday, I attended my first blog meetup. I met eight fabulous bloggers who all live in and around my hometown. There were twelve of us in total, but I already knew three lovely ladies. Laura from Walking in Memphis in High Heels put everything together. She got us reservations at Local Gastropub in Midtown Memphis. She brought cupcakes and goodies for each of us, all from local vendors. Bekah from Matters of Merrymaking provided the decorations. And Jaime, who may not be great at driving on the interstate, is great at making cakes. You can see her yummy creation below.
For some of us, it's never easy meeting new people. On Saturday, this wasn't the case at all. I'd been reading some of the ladies' blogs for several months. Others, I didn't know at all. By the end of the night, I felt like I'd made eight new friends. I had a ton of fun and felt completely at ease with this great group of Memphis bloggers. We're already planning our next meetup.
