Nine days into my vacation and the first day in Paris in a tiny cafe in the infamous Montmartre more than a dozen Parisian bloggers gathered together to meet each other IRL (and at my request, I can’t believe it!). Bloggers who I have interacted with via comments, guest-posts, Twitter and of course as readers and huge fans of all their blogs. Bloggers whom I was thrilled to finally meet in person. And all I can say is: “Paris bloggers rule!”
I know I have said this many times but the blogging community is amazing. It brings people together that I would have had no chance of meeting and I feel blessed to have met some of my favorite bloggers in person! They are all truly exceptional in person.
The lines blurred, we were no longer voices hidden behind IP addresses but rather a group of people connected by their love of writing, of Paris and of blogging. I was in awe. I had too little time with them as well. I needed to remain cognizant of the fact that it was also Mr. Misadventures vacation and could not spend all night with everyone despite the fact that I really wanted to!
After two short hours I had to bid adieu but not before I thanked everyone and had my hubby take this group photo (unfortunately a few people had slipped out before I could everyone).
Thanks to Erica of Haven in Paris for finding the little cafe Living b’Art to host us we had the place all to ourselves, it was intimate and fun.
I am also glad I am not alone, check out what Amy had to say as well, I love the format of her post!
Think I will be back in May so looking forward to Part Deux…this time I will plan for a longer evening!
