Grogblogging

Darp and Jess organized a get together of bloggers in Sydney last Friday. I wandered along and, well, there were a lot of people there. Despite having been to two previous such gatherings, the only bloggers I had met before were Jason Soon and c8to. I’m too lazy to link to everybody so I’m going to reward TimT’s shameless link whoring by suggesting you go to his post and follow the links from there to all the photos and descriptions and more importantly, a whole bunch of interesting blogs you might not have seen before.

One anecdote: That evening, at dinner, when I told the family I was going out to meet some bloggers, the 16-year-old looked at me with a “could my Dad be any more lame?” expression. Naturally, I took that as a challenge and printed out a graph of my blog traffic to take along. Not only was the 16-year-old forced to acknowledge that his Dad was the uber-lamer, but my fellow bloggers found the graph fascinating, and Suki even took a picture. Oh well, I haven’t hit rock bottom yet—that comes when you post pictures of your pets on your blog.

    I’m not sure how this fits into the “lamer” classification, but I will note that the graph has a “Meet Singles in Your Area” ad at the top! That’s gotta count for something?

    Hmmm, sitemeter must think bloggers can’t get dates.

    I took a picture because I was impressed that you were organised enough to bring a printout, and I (and Completely Biased) were impressed by the amount of readers you get. If you would like the picture of that let me know. Suki.Lombard@gmail.com
