Meeting Ed

I've been traveling the past ten days--first to a meeting in St. Louis and then up to Iowa City for the Iowa Summer Writing Festival.  Along the way, in Southeast Iowa, I had lunch with Ed.  We have been reading each other blog since 2005! This was our first time to meet face-to-face. It was a pleasure to catch up with him.

Ed doesn't use his real name in his blog (his name is taken from Edward Abbey, an author we both enjoy). Nor does he show facial photos, so I figured a handshake would suffice. 

Remember, most of my blogging these days can be found here.

  4. I certainly enjoyed our meeting and will be sure to pay the visit forward sometime when I'm in your neck of the woods.

  5. Isn't that fun! My sister and I once spent a weekend with two other women we met and had gotten to know online. It ended up being a blast.

    Glad you got to meet face to face!

  6. I recently had my second in-person meeting with a blogger I've known since 2008. I've done a few of those meet-ups, and they can be really rewarding. Glad to hear you had a good time.

  7. It's so cool that you met a blogger friend. I’ve been talking to a few people online for 5+ years, but I haven’t met any of them in real life.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!
