I love it when the real and online worlds collide, and some really neat examples have caught my eye on my endless list of RSS feeds today.
Problogger has managed to gain a sponsor for his first gathering: “I’m really excited to announce that it looks like there will be a chance for the first ever ProBlogger readers meet up while I’m in New York in late March” Finding a sponsor is a nice extension of the usual ‘I’ll be in bar X for a couple of hours on the 6th” typemeet up.
One of my favourite website blogs is that of zooomr, yesterday had a slightly less formal: “Maybe we can organize a dinner somewhere too afterwards and then shoot some more if folks want. Come on out and join us if you have time on Wednesday afternoon or evening” invite to someone elses event – total spirit of the internet.
This has to be a badge of honour for any blog, that people get off their bums to come out and say hi.
