Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too.

Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question is:

Have you ever met a blogging friend in real life? If no, would you like to. If yes, how was the encounter?

      I have noticed that car insurance companies know the automobiles which are vulnerable to accidents and various risks. They also know what kind of cars are susceptible to higher risk and also the higher risk they may have the higher the particular premium rate. Understanding the uncomplicated basics of car insurance just might help you choose the right kind of insurance policy that could take care of your family needs in case you get involved in any accident. Thanks for sharing a ideas for your blog.

    I have yet to meet one in real life, all though I have a friend that I got into blogging and now she and I know some of the same people online through blogging. I have one bloggy buddy that I talk on the phone with but have never met in person, that sure would be awesome though! I would love to go to a conference and meet some of my favorite peeps :)

    Yes, I’ve met a blogger friend before. It turned out to be really cool. My blogger friend lives in New England but has a sister who lives near me (totally shocking to both of us). So she came here for a visit and we decided to have lunch. We spent a lot of time just undoing all our security stuff (telling each other everyone’s real names) and then just chatting about everything. It was as if we were old friends who hadn’t seen each other in a few years.

    I’m looking forward to meeting others…I’ve even invited some to come stay with me.

    I have! Discovered a somewhat local bloggy friend a couple years back and finally we got together last fall. We also realized our husbands had probably met each other at a regional conference since they are both teachers (as are we).
    It was so funny because her voice was different than I expected, but other than that it was like hanging out with an old friend! We hope to get together again this summer!
