Meeting Fellow Blogger Friend "Odat" in New York

Last week while in New York I squeezed in some personal time to meet a fellow Blogger friend for lunch. Some of you may know "Odat" as she is known from her Odat's Mumbling blog. (We're also friends on Facebook, where she reveals her real name, but here in the Blogger world, I'll just call her Odat). We first spoke via telephone a few months ago, to share a few tips before her cruise to Greece. I had just returned from my Aegean Sea cruise, so it was still fresh in my mind. I was staying in mid-town Manhattan and Odat traveled in from another part of the city, so I am appreciative for her efforts. We had a nice lunch at the Waldorf and had an easy time talking; in fact I felt as though I had known her much longer. But then again, that's the way it is in the Blogger world. We feel as though we get to know each other because we follow someone's life and times on their blog. Anyway it was a special treat for me, and I'm grateful that we had the opportunity to meet.

You are definitely right about how meeting a fellow blogger is like seeing an old friend. I'm glad you had that opportunity.

Thanks for the visit; I am pleased to know that you enjoyed that post.


AWESOME!! Happy dining Odat and Savant!

Glad that you guys could meet up and chat!!

Oh! I just love that! I've had a few "when blog world meets real world" experiences too. I've made some very good friends via the blog. Not that I needed the blog to make new friends, but it sort of just happened that way. I guess one gets to know others from the blog and when you share common experiences and interests, it's hard not to become friendly with some bloggers!

Looks like you two had a great time!

How sweet! I've def seen Odat around the blogosphere too :)

I'm heading to Chicago in a few weeks for another meet up with some of my blogger friends who have become some of my bestest friends in dear life. I love the internet cause we never would have met otherwise.
