Chicago bloggers - meet them!

In the spirit of trying new things, meeting new people - I went to my first blogger meet up @ Rockit. The apps were in abundance as were the drinks which made for a pretty fantastic kick off to the evening...that and about 18 Chicago bloggers all with the same objective...to meet new friends and share their love for the blogosphere. Admittedly, I was a smidge nervous not knowing a single soul but breathed a quick sigh of relief upon introductions. Everyone was so nice, enthusiastic and down-to-earth...and passionate! The funny thing is, if you're a blogger, you follow, read and enjoy learning about your virtual friends so much so that once you meet them in real life - it's almost like you've been friends forever. It was like a blind date with 18 friends I never knew I had or could have. {highly recommended}

Without further adieu, please do check out the major talent behind these bright faces...I know I did this past weekend!
