I didn’t attend BlogFest’s 1 and 2, but last night I attended Pittsburgh BlogFest 3. It was really cool to meet some felow Pittsburgh bloggers in person. Being the shy guy I am, I started with Rob of UnSpace and Mike of Grabass and Pittsburgh Webloggers, with whom I recorded a podcast interview a few months back (part 1, part 2). Through them, I met folks from the following blogs:
I had a good time meeting the people behind the keyboards. There were a few awkward moments related to political discussions, but nothing uncivil or unpleasant. My only regret is that I didn’t step out of my comfort zone more and meet more people. Perhaps by the next BlogFest I’ll have read more Pittsburgh blogs and have added incentive to be less shy.
Tim McNulty, staff reporter for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, was also in attendance (with photographer in tow). I look forward to reading his article.
