BlogFest the Third

BlogFest 3 name tagI 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:

UnSpace
All Jacked
Subdivided We Stand
2 Political Junkies
Central Park Bench
Gclectic
It’s important to be warm
Froth Slosh B’Gosh
the.dahl.pod
Honsberger is a Liar

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. :)

    Hi Eric!

    Just saw the PG article and I realized that I know you! I used to dance with Mary Kellner and I recognized your screen name from when she gave me your email address a few years ago.

    Anyway, hope you’re doing well–I hear Mary is back in Pgh and is looking to start a group up…

    […] I mentioned yesterday that an article about Pittsburgh BlogFest 3 was forthcoming. I had no idea it would appear so soon. Nor did I know that I was going to feature so prominently. *blush* I also had no idea they’d use such an unflattering picture. […]
