Meet The Bloggers!

I have been blogging since December 2004. That makes this blog almost 6 and a half years old! Agreed, there have been loooong periods of inactivity and the blog has undergone many transformations in terms of content, but it still remains an outlet for my thoughts and words. A remark about the change in my blog by an old blog buddy got me thinking about the days gone by and what good times we had. Those were the days when blogging was new, bloggers were new and blogs were a collection of random posts about everything under the sun! In my group, you found book reviews, movie reviews, travelogues, recipes, song reviews, poems, political rants, office cribs and stories... lots and lots of stories. Some were real, some were figments of the blogger's imagination, but each one was brilliant! Time passed, life happened, ppl moved to other cities, got new jobs, got married and genrally drifted apart, coz a lot of them stopped blogging or became very irregular. Daily interactions grew to a few odd comments...

And then, Facebook happened! The bloggers were reunited as the network grew... I have kept in touch with a few of my blog buddies and am good friends with them. Several of them are on my facebook and twitter. I can now put faces to their names and know what is happening in their lives. And yet, there are others who I know nothing about... I wondered what happened to them... I then thought about the friends I gained, and wanted to get them all together again. My first thought was a VBM ( a Virtual Blogger's Meet) but the chance of finding a timeslot when all of us cold be accommodated would be next to impossible. And hence, this idea was born - Meet The Bloggers!!!

yeah, I saw Meet The Fockers that weekend and hence the name, but i like it! So, I asked a couple of questions to all my blog buddies and now I proudly present them to you...! Watch this space for more....
