Neat that y'all get together. This is a group of all types of bloggers right?

Ben Wideman said...

Ya, all types. Everything under the sun actually! I was impressed at the diversity - politics, art, real estate, culture, gossip, etc. It was great.

Petrea said...

Good morning, Ben. Looks like I got too much light and you got too little (just like my pic). Just like an actor. Always hogging the spotlight.

It was fun to meet you, and the others, too. I look forward to doing it again. It's a great group, and very diverse.

Bummer! I didn't know about this, I bet it was fun.

Ben Wideman said...

We did have a good time! I'll try and let you know when the next one comes up. It seems like they have been happening every couple of months.

Seems that I missed you by minutes. Were you the fellow leaving the parking lot in the black Porche?

Ben Wideman said...

ha ha, I wish! Nope, we've got a modest ford taurus. A shame I had to leave early, I hear I missed a few others and missed out on the group photo.

Ben it was very nice meeting you as well. Glad you liked the pics on my blog as well.

Jim, Palm Axis,Kim Thomas et al, our get togethers are done in a broadcast message on Metblogs (me) or the FCBlog (Aaron Proctor and myself). They are open to anyone who has a blog or is just a fan of a blog. Always potluck style and never enough time to get to talk with everyone you need to!

Stay tuned as we are looking at September for our next on.

Love the title that Petrea has given to the photo of the two of you, Ben - This Guy is Big in Pasadena. Excellent play on words, Petrea. Nice blog you have too.

Ben Wideman said...

Thanks Clare! Good to know some familiar people are checking out the blog.

Petrea said...

Thank you, Clare!
