Meeting Bloggers

Posted By Darren Rowse 21st of November 2006 ProBlogger Site News 0 Comments

I can’t believe how fast this last week has gone. I’m only here in Toronto for another two days (and then have another day sitting on a plane).

After a very long week of b5 meetings with Jeremy and Mark, VCs and other Toronto based web start ups we took yesterday off to relax. After a long sleep in I spent a couple of hours with BJ Wong (Belle) from Working Blogger and Adventures in Net Marketing (among other blogs). Belle’s reflections of our lunch are at Lunch with Darren.

Belle and I have been working together on a couple of blogs for a while now and it was fantastic to finally meet her in person.

It is amazing to meet bloggers like Belle in person. This past week I must have met 10 or so bloggers that I regularly read and on each occasion I’ve found them to be very similar to the way I had imagined them to be.

I often hear friends tell me that people pretend to be someone that they’re not online – but in 99% of cases where I’ve met bloggers the person ends up being very similar to their online persona.

Anyway – today I get to test the theory again when I meet Aaron – something I’m looking forward to!

  • I guess that with bloggers, our personalities come out more accurately through our blogs and comments. Kinda makes sense.

    Glad to see you’re enjoying Toronto; if you ever want to see Montreal let me know!

    Hope your return flight isn’t too long and painfull.
