On Saturday Sandie Dixon and I drove over to Quartzsite for bloggerfest. Three hours drive each way. We were both tired folks when we got back. I'm just now surfacing.
Bloggerfest was fun. Even though I did very little to get the word out we had 11 people show up, 5 from the US and 6 Canadians. Even though Sandie had been one of the founders of Bloggerfest she hadn't been to one for a few years so we went around and again introduced ourselves and told a bit of our stories. We discussed our sorrow at losing George Yates. Those of us who had known Rod Ivers spent some time telling some of our favorite Rod stories, and there are many. The Roomba post on his blog is a classic that I see referenced in unrelated places it is so funny.
My heart just wasn't much into doing much preparation for the event this year, for which I apologise. Next year I will get the word out more and get the banner available for folks to put on their blogs earlier. I admit that I usually let George do most of the advertising in previous years. Time for me to step up in that area.
Thank you to all who showed up. Next year, same place, the last Saturday if the big tent.
