Live & In Person MeetUP -
Rebecca Gaujot and Mike Cooper Tie Tonight
The October Contest sponsored by Donna Foerster asked WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO MEET LIVE and IN PERSON? Donna arranged for extra points for three entries. So, I started to look at the list of the people that I would like to meet. Now I had a problem. There were 48 names on my list the first time I wrote names down!
Decision time - how to choose? One group of people I din't addd were the 14 people I wanted to meet and did meet! Each time I can do so when I travel, I arrange a MeetUP in the city where I am so that I may meet members there whose Blogs I have followed.
The first ActiveRain member I met wasLyn Simsnear Chicago. ThenMargaret Romein Baltimore. ThenCindy Jonesin the DC area. When Bruce Hicks fromHawaii passed through Atlanta ton the way to visit his dad in Tennessee,Jordon Wheeler and I set up a MeetUP. While in Philadelphia this summer for a wedding included meeting Hannah WilliamsandGlenn Freezman. Most recently I went to the "xplode" technology conference because I heardBob Stewartwould be there so I could meet him!
So who would I like to meet in person now?? Cannot decide on just one!
Rebecca and I have had many discussions about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. She is an inspiration with all her good works and charitable behavior. I look forward to meeting her one day soon. Her posts are like models for everyone to follow - for example - her Halloween Activities post.
Mike and I have had many discussions about life, goals, values and the opportunities life gives for changing directions. I admire his attitude and his generosity towards others. Mike's posts are clear and written with words that draw you in like magnets. Try reading Mike's post about passion.
Have a happy day -
