Ryan, your description of meeting bloggers we've never met or spoken with before is spot on.

I'm looking forward to seeing what other people learned over the weekend.

By the way, my daughter is a midwife in Maine (on hiatus while she raises our 2-1/2 year old grandson) and son Michael directs music videos in L.A., for groups like The Shins, The 88 and Brazilian Girls. (He'd love to do more corporate videos, so call me (his #1 agent) if you have a gig.)

See you soon, I hope, Ryan.

Ryan, how could anyone NOT smile at you? You not only looked ravishing in your perfect cocktail dress, but you exude as much energy in person as you do on your blog! I really enjoyed meeting you and can't wait to meet up again soon.

Hi Ryan,
It was a pleasure meeting with you; the entire experience was indeed very surreal. I wish I could have made Sunday brunch, but was out late Sat. then with others at David's house. We all definitely could have benefited from more time to speak, but such is life - Now to clean up the reader/blogroll /network, so that the personal relationships (new & previous) are held precious, while cutting weak ties with limited value in the social following/network. Time is a dear asset; this last weekend made for some fantastic re-perceiving on our place in this new 'social' space and how we can best use that time to connect with people that are genuine and matter to us.

Hey Gorgeous,
I love this blog post.
I was so glad I came to Blogger Social and very happy that I chose the Sunday Brunch that you kindly organized for my Sunday activity.
Here is Ray's photo from the brunch. We apologize that Jennifer Berk's image doesn't do her justice. I look like I haven't slept in 3 days - cause I haven't! But it was worth it.


Major lesson .. did not spend time with you!

I'm so glad that you were able to join in the fun! I would have loved to be at your brunch, but as you know, I had to scoot back to Des Moines at 6 am on Sunday.

It was surreal and yet perfectly natural at the same time, wasn't it? What an amazing weekend with some remarkable, good people!



I learned that you are not only MORE beautiful in person (your skin is to be marveled at!) but that you are such a very, very "real" person...I was instantly comfortable with you.

And thank heavens for that. I dig real ;-).

It looks like you got some of the same things out of it that I did. I'll be glad to play along. :)

Hi Ryan -- I'm still working on my post about BS08! I found the gathering very powerful and inspiring. As I emailed to a friend, I'm still trying to wrap my brain around all of it, it was that big for me in so many ways -- I'll post soon! :)
