Through the magic of Facebook and cell phones, Linda and I managed to find and enjoy the company of a number of genea-bloggers. Here are some of my pictures:
1) On Wednesday night, we connected with Lisa Alzo and Donna Pointkouski at the Red Rock Brewery:
2) On Friday night, before the showing of WDYTYA?, Linda and I had an enjoyable dinner at The Olive Garden with (from left) Sheri Fenley, Denise Levenick and Donna Pointkouski.
4) Janet Hovorka suggested a Bloggers lunch meetup on Saturday in the Convention Center, so we invited bloggers when we saw them and put the word out on Facebook and Twitter. The picture below shows (from left) Randy Seaver, Janet Hovorka, Lisa Alzo, Amy Urman, Madaleine Laird, Angela McGhie and Sheri Fenley. Dean Richardson left before the picture was taken, and A.C. Ivory joined the group just after the picture was taken:
There is this wonderful camaraderie amongst genea-bloggers because we tend to know more about each, and we share the common experience of writing and posting for public consumption. The restaurant and food served doesn't matter - the important thing is enjoying each other's company, sharing experiences and news, and encouraging each other, which happens a lot in these meetups. Oh, the gossip, too!
