I attended Gun Blogger Rendezvous 1 – 10, only missing the last one so I could attend Boomershoot again. Unfortunately it really was the last one, but that means I have vacation time (and money) to allow me to attend another gathering of The People of the Gun™ that I have had to miss in prior years – Blogorado.
Blogorado is an invitation-only gathering of the Clan held in an undisclosed location in Colorado, attended by a glittering list of blog-writers, their spouses (often bloggers themselves) and sometimes their families. It is held on the ranch of Farmgirl, Farmmom, and Farmdad. Motel reservations are made, vacation time has been requested, and now I just have to choose what portion of my arsenal will be making the trip North and East with me.
I’m really looking forward to seeing several people I haven’t seen in meatspace in years, and meeting new people I haven’t had a chance to meet before.
For me, this is the best part of blogging – friends you never knew you had. As Breda Fallon once said in an episode of the podcast Vicious Circle:
I’m one of those people – I like people, I’m personable, but I don’t really have “friends” friends, because I just don’t connect to people really that well. But then blogs happened, and I found a whole group of people that I fit in with because I’m weird and they’re weird in kinda the same way, and yea for our mutual weirdness. So, thank you for being weird with me.
