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
