Have I been to a blog party....?? Thats like asking ...have you been to Target lately?
Why sure! I like that it gets a bunch of blogs all in one place.,..so speedy reading...I love 'stumbling' on cool sites that way....then they are the prizes- who does't like a prize?
I was clueless when I did my first one. Never heard about it and really had no one to ask. I just jumped in and it was a fun time. You might want to try just one. I am sure there will be more throughout the year. It is a great networking tool if anything.
If you are asking about the online blog parties, then yes I've done a few of them. They are fun, you find new blogs & get new visitors to your blog. If you are talking about meetings in real life, then I have never done that.
I have been to two - both in the last few months. First was with Five Minutes For Mom and the second, Mommyfest, which just finished. I am still going through the blogs. There are so many of them it is difficult to find the end of the line :) The only down side - is that once they stop by, not many seem to ever stop by again.
I had no idea there were blog parties online! I only thought there were the popular ones that Dooce and PW attend in Austin. Never been but sounds fun. Although, I don't have a laptop and that seems like an essential piece of equipment:(
That is true Danny! I have found that once you do start participating in them though, you will keep running into the same people. Eventually they become readers. I know I find tons of blogs to read from these. I a lot of times, I read them in bloglines, so I don't always comment.
I know there is a summer one coming up at Notes from my Nest. Not sure of dates.
