An October Challenge: Who Would You Like To Meet Live And In Person?

 

Have you been hiding behind  your computer? Writing your posts and commenting but never reaching out to your fellow members? Maybe you've just been lurking, reading posts but not commenting or posting or putting yourself out there.

Conversation with another RainerMaybe you've been brave enough to send an email or pick up the phone and you've had a conversation with another Rainer, but you've never met anyone face to face.

Perhaps you've had the chance to actually meet a member who lives in your community or state. Or you've been to a local meetup and had the opportunity to meet with a few bloggers.

 

Meet Live And In Person!Here's the real question...is there someone, or a few someones that you've ALWAYS WANTED TO MEET, but they just live to far away, or you are just too overwhelmed by their blogging prowess to meet for real? Who would you like to meet live and in person if  you were given the chance?

 

 

Take The Challenge!

Tell us about it in a post, written by you, highlighting the member(s) you would like to meet and WHY!

Each post must be a minimum of 200 words. It would be awesome if you included a photo, but it's not a must. You will be rewarded 500 points for each post (up to 3) that you write that meets the criteria. Please be sure to include your entry in the comments sections of this post.

(All of your entries should be included in ONE comment, please. This will make it much easier to track your entries. We don't want to miss anything!)

 

Contest starts Tuesday, October 1st and ends Thursday, October 31st at 11:59 Pacific Time.

I had a very large list of people that I wanted to visit for this challenge and of course you are one of them, but as you said this is a challenge, so I challenged myself to prune my list down to three and here they are.

Really got a chance to see how many people there are here that I would enjoy meeting live and in person!

Thanks Donna!

Karen~ I subscribed to 2 of your 3 choices!

Fred~ It seems that a trip to Tennessee is in your future.

Yolanda~ Your choices are spread out across the country. You'll need to plan a road trip!

Debbie L.~ I'm so glad you were able to participate. I ran out of time!

Patricia~ Are you putting any dates on your 2014 calendar?

Paul~ I hope you get to meet Margaret one day (soon).

Tammy~ I think everyone should just come to Colorado to see me and then meet each other. I'm fairly central!  LOL!

Dale~ Thank you for introducing me to 2 new members!

Anna~ I had a few snickers bars, but that was it. I've decided the next time I host I will ask members to write ONE post. Trying to read 3 is TOO much!

Rob~ I completely enjoy reading Roy's blog and his comments!

Anna~ Love your 2nd post about the Bananatudes. That's one way to cover 1000+ members that you'd like to meet!

Paula~ Believe it or not, I didn't get to participate in my OWN contest. I was so busy moderating that I just didn't have the time. I'm still going to write a few posts. No points for me though!

Hi Lottie~ It's hard to believe it's November already. I'll be doing the 30 in 30 cloudburst of you AR challenge this month. I'm going out of town for a few days, so I have to "ready" some draft posts!

Lorrie~ One is better than none!

Debbie G.~ Your titles are teasing me! Can't wait to read your posts!

Hi Judi~ Thank you for introducing me to 2 new members today!

Fred~ This challenge has allowed me to meet so many wonderful new people!

John~ I hope we can make it happen in January 2014!

Jerry~ Believe it or not, I have not met Dick and he's only a few hours away! I'm planning a trip to Florida soon and hope to connect with Kathy. As for Tom, I'd love to meet him, but don't know if I'll make it out to CA any time soon.

Helen & Larry~ Well written posts!

Joni~ You got all three in with time to spare!

Tammie~ You are on my short list and hopefully I'll be meeting up with you (and Tom?) soon!

Hey Carla~ I'm slowly making my way through all the posts. More than 100 Rainers participated. I'm pretty happy with the results. Just didn't expect it to take so much time!

Dawn~ It's so nice to see you in the Rain! Another member wrote about you and it made me sad that I don't "see" you as often as I used to.

Lynn~ I'm glad you enjoyed the challenge.

Lisa~ I'm almost done! I'll finish reading all the posts tonight!

Kristin~ I'll be sending in my "tally" sheet to Kerrie tomorrow, so hopefully points can be awarded before the end of the week!

Bob~ I've got all 3 of your posts recorded!

Tom~ I think you snuck in with at least 8 people!

Michelle~ You made it! All 3 count!

Elise~ Two is a nice number! LOL!

Donna, I had two messages. One said 1500 points had been awarded ( 3 posts). The other message said 1 point had been awarded. There was only 1 point, not the 1500... :)

Andre~ I have found that every time I meet someone in person, they are just as I expected them to be after reading their blog. Very few surprises.
