Wordless Wednesday — Blogging Friends IRL

by Janice


Rachel from A Southern Fairytale and Janice during the
Kraft Mom Blogger Event.

The fabulous Kim Becker from Mommy Knows shot this photo while we were en route to the event at Kraft headquarters in Chicago. Thanks so much Kim – I love it!

I had a great time in Chicago – read here why I decided to go.

I think http://www.mcklinky.com might be down right now… please add your link as a comment at the moment until it comes back up…

Now it’s your turn…

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

It's great to see that bloggers can meet up face to face and make friendships. The wonders of modern technology.
Best wishes

Great pictures and what wonderful friends you have. I would love to visit the world of Kraft foods. If I looked at most of the labels in my home they are from Kraft foods. I will check out the healthier items and ideas on the website as well. Thank you for much for sharing your trip and take care. Happy WW!

41 grace_sandierpastures August 26, 2009 at 2:28 am

Living very far from the US or Canada makes it very hard for me to meet bloggy friends IRL. I wish I could go in any of the blog conferences someday!

42 youngmommy August 26, 2009 at 2:45 am

Awww, two of my favorite (and beautiful) bloging friends!

43 Lisa August 26, 2009 at 3:30 am

How fun to meet IRL! I get to meet some more bloggers IRL at the circus Thursday night!

Fun! I just met a bloggy friend IRL for the first time this summer! We hope to do it again soon! It was great to really see her and talk in “real time” !!!
Here's my WW post:

Isn't it cool to meet bloggy friends in real life? I can't wait to meet some of mine, as well.

51 sheila_at_MaVieFolle August 26, 2009 at 5:55 am

Ahhh, you're both so cute.

52 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) August 26, 2009 at 6:33 am

That is a great picture of the two of you! I wasn't able to go to BlogHer this year, but next year I'm SO there! :)

53 April August 26, 2009 at 7:34 am

Thanks for the linky! I still haven't met any bloggers IRL… soon though, I hope :-)


54 Staci August 26, 2009 at 7:53 am

I think it is so neat to meet blogging buddies IRL…. Some of them we know better than our IRL friends!

55 MelaniesCrafts August 26, 2009 at 8:08 am

What a great opportunity! Great photo!

56 gograhamgo August 26, 2009 at 8:12 am

Fabulous photo. This is one of the reasons I can not wait to go to BlogHer 2010 – to meet more people IRL.

58 Twisted Cinderella August 26, 2009 at 8:31 am

Drop by for a visit!

59 Brandy August 26, 2009 at 8:34 am

I love the WW pic today! I wish I had met you all IRL. Rachel is awesome I love her recipes too Yummy!

60 Kna96 August 26, 2009 at 8:35 am

Must be great to meet your blogging friends in real life! Thanks for another great week! I'm so excited to be able to share my big news!!

61 Lana August 26, 2009 at 8:39 am

Gotta love Wednesdays!

62 thegangsmomma August 26, 2009 at 8:49 am

I've got several blogging friends that I'd LOVE to meet in person and become friends IRL . . . especially all those adopters who travelled around the same time I did. I did get to meet one or two in China, but didn't get to spend enough time with them to really cement a friendship. Just enough time to know that if we lived closer, we'd DEFINITELY be best buds!

63 JodiLY August 26, 2009 at 9:01 am

You both have such sparkly eyes! Gorgeous :)

64 Frugal Fritizie August 26, 2009 at 9:02 am

Friends are Forever! :)

65 Kooki August 26, 2009 at 9:04 am

It's nice to be able to bond with bloggers we know :)

Happy WW!

66 mom2anutball August 26, 2009 at 9:11 am

Great picture! Happy WW!

67 shannahall August 26, 2009 at 9:55 am

Wonderful picture. It's always so nice to see distant friends!

68 ali August 26, 2009 at 10:30 am

I bet it's so cool to meet bloggy friends in real life–one of these days I might just have to go to a meet up!

69 shelly August 26, 2009 at 10:43 am

How fun to get to meet blogger friends in RL!

70 Karen Ivey Yaughn August 26, 2009 at 11:26 am

How nice to have blogging friends IRL. Great photo!

71 purplemoose August 26, 2009 at 11:36 am

74 mommyknowsq August 26, 2009 at 1:46 pm

It wasn't difficult to get a great shot of you two lovely ladies! It was so much fun meeting you both.

Thanks for the shout out Janice!

75 golightly August 26, 2009 at 1:49 pm

loved your picture, tried to comment last night while Mr. linky was down; but I couldn't even do that. Hmm.

76 Jingle August 26, 2009 at 1:55 pm

79 fiona August 26, 2009 at 2:09 pm

I love when you meet up with a bloggy friend IRL and they are exactly as you know them to be!

80 homemom3 August 26, 2009 at 2:13 pm

not sure if my post went through or not. I just wanted to say Happy WW and what an opportunity. I'd love to meet some of the ladies I chat with daily, to be honest I've known one blogger for over 9 years and never even met her. Great pic of the two of you though.

81 Angie Marion August 26, 2009 at 4:43 pm

Love the photo! Here's mine: http://angiemarion.blogspot.com/2009/08/wordles

82 Stephanie September 1, 2009 at 10:43 pm

What a fabulous photo! You both look so happy and relaxed. And, Janice, your hair looks so shiny and pretty! How do you and your sister always manage to have perfectly coiffed hair? ;)
