Southern California
I'm just wondering, how many of you are in Southern California? It seems like there are several. I know there was a group of bloggers that got together in Seattle not too long ago. And there is the BlogHer conference this summer in Chicago. But are there enough bloggers to try and pull something together for something in San Diego or some other town? I live about 2 hours from San Diego and 2 hours from L.A. Hour and a half from Temecula (I know, it's not a huge city, but one of my favorite restaurants is there...) Anyway, if you are a Southern California blogger, or you know some Southern California bloggers, or, if you're going to be in Southern Cali for a visit, let's see if we can find a way to meet! I would love to get to know y'all! If you know a great place to grab some grub, let me know! Let's see if we can get together for some blogger talk and some good eatin!

Well I'll be down the whole month of August. So maybe we can plan something. Going Barefoot is from Huntington beach and my old ward. So we can grab her, as well as my friend Jen whose a blog reader, but not quite ready to write. Maybe we can lure her to the dark side?

Eve - I had forgotten that you are headed this way in August! We should try to have lunch or something. I'm not familiar with Going Barefoot... I'll have to find her blog :) And I'm always up for a little dark side luring!

Kathleen - let me know if you ever do come! It would be so fun to meet you!

i want to try to fly down sometime in the next few months to a year to my grandma (she lives in clovis/fresno). are you anywhere near her? or super far away?

email me (in my profile) if you would prefer to talk about this and details in email.

Melissa said...

Amber - I would love to go to BlogHer... I've entered for free tickets and then we'll see... my Portland trip kinda puts a kink on taking other trips right now :S

Kailani - that would be so much fun! I will let you know as things progress :)

Jamie - I was hoping you'd chime in! I'll keep talking to people... see if we can get a time set up to maybe do this!

Kathleen - thanks for the info! We are probably about 5 hours South of Fresno... but let me know if you come and we'll see if we can figure something out!! I'll email you later... probably not today... too many crazy thing tonight... :S

Wynne - I hadn't thought about Sarah... I do "know" her... online.... if you can really call that knowing someone... kinda... lol... she would be fun. Any chance you'll be in the area for a family reunion or something? :)

hope your day was groovy! kathleen :)

Oh MY! I live not far from you! I have always wanted to do a SoCal blogging event but thought I lived too far away from anyone. I would love to do this!!!!! I'm in Hemet. aaacck!

Melissa said...

Kathleen - I tried to email... the link didn't work for me :S

Chronicler - Hemet?! You are close! We drive through Hemet to get to all the good stuff (a.k.a. the beach, SeaWorld, the zoo...) I will keep you posted on details!! :D

Sarah said...

I'm a little late on the uptake here - just found this post - I'd LOVE to get to meet some of you! I don't know personally most of the people who read my blog but would love love love to get together and make it official.

What else did I miss? Did this event already happen? Email me at sarahflakeATgmail.com if something is in the works. I could coordinate/host something here in the heart of L.A. if that works best...
