STL Blogger Gathering Tonight!

What do you MEAN this is the first you’ve heard of it? All the cool kids will be at the STL Blogger Gathering tonight at Schlafly Bottleworks. Don’t worry — they know we’re coming — and are excited about dozens close to a hundred (hey — could be!) bloggers descending upon the establishment. Here is the important stuff you need to know.

Some ground rules:

Share your URL on your nametag. If you’re anonymous, don’t feel obligated to share your name, but give us something to call you, anyway.

I’m not really a stranger hugger. If we’ve been reading one another and commenting reciprocally for awhile, you might get one. If not, I’m totally down with the handshake.

Be friendly. Yeah, you’re going to have to converse with some people you may never have heard of, but hey, everyone’s a stranger until they meet, right?

Go ahead and share the gathering info with fellow bloggers and your blog supporters. It’s time we all got together. This year, I attended BlogHer with 800 bloggers and BlogOrlando with close to 200. It’s an incredibly powerful experience to be in a room with a bunch of other bloggers. You’re going to love it!

More people I can’t wait to meet:

Marriage 101

BBMP Second Journal

Jeannette Eats Spaghetti

Operating Instructions, Please

Raquita — The Wise Old Black Lady in Training

Hoping to see YOU, too!

    I can attest to the hugging thing. I got my first hug yesterday after months and months of waiting (and you’re my mentor, so basically we’re the same flesh and blood).

  2. Dwight says:

    Ix-nay on the sug-hay? O-tay, MJ!

  3. marijean says:

    Oh, Dwight. I think I have to make an exception for you. 😉

  4. Dana says:

    I will hug you but otherwise, I’m so awkward that I usually end up head-butting people when trying to hug them and they interpret it as me trying to street fight them or something. I am beyond help.

  5. Marriage-101 says:

    I probably won’t be hugging anyone and will most likely stay about 5ft away so as not to chance giving anyone my cold. Be thankful, because otherwise, you might have been tackled.

    I’m bummed to say this, but: I’m not going to be able to make it. I’ve had cold/fever stuff going on for the past day, and I just can’t shake it. I would put my glad rags on and give it the old college try, but it would be SO obvious that I was to blame if anyone became ill afterward. (I have that weird habit of frenching everyone in the room…) I hope to catch up with you all next time!

    Well I guess I missed something along the way. Hope you had a great turnout!
