All these updates from bloggers headed to Walt Disney World for the Social Media Moms conference reminded me of this photo On the plane to the first Disney MomBloggers Mixer (now called Social Media Moms), while drinks and snacks were being passed out, I struck up a conversation with the friendly woman across the aisle from me.
I said something about how weird it felt to be going to Disney World without my kids, and she said “that’s what I’m doing, too!” I said “really? I’m going for a conference of sorts, what about you?” She says “yeah, I’m going to a gathering of Mom bloggers” (or something like that). I said “no way, me too!”
Us bloggers had started a Yahoo! group beforehand and had chatted and gotten to know each other. I said, “I’m Elizabeth, from Table for Five”, and she said, “I’m Stephanie from Adventures in Babywearing!”. And then I leaned across the aisle, seatbelt still buckled, she leaned over too, and we managed an awkward hug right there on the plane. And that’s how I met Stephanie in person for the first time
