Reno - Here We Come!
Less than 48 hours from now I'll be in Reno at the Circus Circus hotel. Like everything, putting together the Gun Blogger Rendezvous turned out to be more work than planned, but the gals at the Circus Circus have been fantastic in helping to put it all together.
By far the biggest attraction is the individual bloggers themselves. We've read their blogs for some time and communicated by email every so often, but we've never had a chance to meet face to face.
I expect there will be some surprises, as the picture you have created in your mind of someone almost always is far removed from what they actually look like. I remember the first time I met a radio personality (DJ) in person. The guy had this big masculine voice and you just figured he was of a stature to match his voice. Nope! A little short scrawny guy with glasses! When he said "I'm so-and-so" you wanted to ask him if he was sure that's who he was!
I'm sure the ladies are all expecting Mr. C. to be a tall, handsome blond haired, muscular, blue eyed Nordic god. ( --- cough -- cough --). Well, at least that's partly right!
It would be interesting to post pictures of some of the bloggers and their names, and see how many folks could correctly match them up!
When we get to Reno, we should all be able to post on the Rendezvous, assuming the WiFi gods are feeling benevolent. Keep an eye on this blog, and also the Rendezvous blog for Rendezvous posts, and links to posts by other bloggers at the Rendezvous.
