We Finally Meet...

Home Inspector with Complete Home Inspections, Inc. TN Lic#050

     Nothing is more fun and exciting than meeting another ActiveRainer in person. Although not a stranger, as one gets to know the other while reading their posts, but seeing them live and in-person is another story. Such was the case when I got an opportunity to meet Roland Woodworth last night at the Mid-South Exit Awards Convention in Murfreesboro, TN.      
     It was great to meet another blogger at a function other than a blogging convention. Although, they are cool places to network and learn about blogging, awards functions are great places to learn about the other person. 

     If I recall correctly, Roland, won a few awards for productivity and his office won "Office of the Year". If you haven't already, take a few moments to read Roland's blog and subscribe to another great blogger here in the rain...

Roland and Michael

Michael..  The same thing happened to me, I met Ed Silva when I had an open house.  He came in and we started talking like we were old friends.. though we had never met in person until then.

Hi Michael,

I am glad that you had the opportunity to meet him.  I am here in Maui for the month and I too will have the opportunity to meet a fellow Active Rain member.  Georgie Hunter is here on the island in Haiku and we will be getting together for lunch or dinner here this next week.  I am making some great friends here on Active rain and learning all types of informative and interesting things.  Hope you have a great Sunday!

Michael, like Glenn I haven't met any one in person yet, but I have talked to some bloggers on the telephone. Good to meet another blogger.

Michael...You are so right!  It is really great to get acquainted with people through  AR, but is extra special to actually meet them in person.  Almost like meeting an old friend.

Michael, I haven't met any ARers yet but it sure would be great. Blogging does help to know one another and when you do meet the person it seemed like common buddies.

Hi Michael, Very cool! As home inspectors we work alone in our own profession everyday, so it is special indeed to meet another inspector in person. Sounds like you had a fun time.

Best Regards, Jay

Michael - Thanks for the kind words.  It was great to actually meet in person.  After many online conversations, it's like we have know each other for a long time :)  Maybe we need to set up a AR meet up some time soon. Would be fun to get others together we know online.

Steven - No, He wasn't standing on my foot this time :)  Believe it or not I was extremely tired as it has been a long week and them a long day at the Exit Midsouth Awards and training.
