So I did arrive a day early to San Francisco a day early so I had lots to do today (friday) before the event kicked off last night.
The day started with a photography session at the children’s section at a local Borders.
It helped a lot because Ashley, who led it, is not a professional so it helped to hear about about all the photography details in my language. It was also my first time meeting some of my favorite bloggers which was a trip!
I must say it is SO bizarre meeting bloggers in real life. Some bloggers are so different in real life. Some are very similar to their blogs and totally like the style they write, if that makes any sense. Some really surprised me in a good way! I met some bloggers I haven’t read that were totally awesome! And then there are a few that kind of disappointed me, or maybe I’m just not “cliquey” enough.
There were a few brief moments where I felt a bit lonely and “out of the loop”. I dont know if its my personality or the fact that my blog is not super popular. There is always the fact that some people have met each other at the healthy living summit or maybe some other blog meet-up. But I think for most people, it was the first time meeting one another in person.
Anyhow, I spent the rest of my afternoon with Lindsey and Tiffany. We took the cable cars to fisherman’s wharf and had lunch at Boudin (for some famous San Francisco sourdough) and somehow, managed to climb up those hills back to our hotel.
Then I entered what seemed like a foodie circus mishmash. With all honesty, I didn’t take many pictures and I wasn’t all into talking about the food. More than anything, I was excited to meet people.
I promise, more pics tomorrow. I honestly with all this blog meeting, I’m very fed up with actually blogging myself. For those few readers I might still have by now, please stay with me. I promise, I think I’ll regurgitate something worth reading when this festival is over. For now, bear with me.
Joey Gladstone is still a no show.
