Blogging is a form of social media that Grenville and I have enjoy a LOT (in case you hadn't noticed). And, luckily we have had the opportunities to meet other bloggers. Our fun adventures over the past 2 years have included trips to places new to us and family visits, but meeting fellow bloggers has been even more fun. We are currently on our post-Christmas road trip visiting family in PA, RI, CT, and NJ. This new year has gotten off to a great start as we have reconnected with a fellow blogger once again and met another for the first time.
This trip, we met JP of A Quiet Corner (and "The Pres") in CT. It was like meeting friends we already knew, although this was our first meeting. The time passed so quickly; JP and Joe were gracious hosts preparing a delicious breakfast brunch and as the day lingered, some great snacks. And, leaving empty-handed was NOT an option.
Earlier in the week, we visited with Doris and husband Dale in PA where we received gracious hospitality and also wonderful treats.
(These were gone before we reached New England.)
THANKS, Dois Dale, JP and Joe — these visits made our road trip VERY special !
In the past year or so, we have had the pleasure of meeting: Lenora of A Journal of Days, Doris (and Dale) of Fun Fahn Times, Elaine (and Marty) of Artic View, Grace of Grammie's Ramblings, Grace (and Joe) of News From the Hill, Betty of My Day My Interests Photoblog, Possum of My Little Corner, Rebecca (and Lee) of Shenandoah Gateway Farm.
Regretfully, there were also some missed opportunities to meet fellow bloggers when schedules did not work out; perhaps another time. We are looking forward to future road trip adventures and the possibility to meet more friends.
IF you are searching the blogosphere for new places to visit, feel free to visit the above blogs or those listed on our Blogger Friends sidebar — they're all friendly places to drop in with photos, recipes and interesting posts. SORRY, but you will not get any goodies through your computer.
