On the 27th of July, a few weeks from now, a group of people will congregate at the Argyle in the Rocks, Sydney.
This group of shy, quiet, restrained folk will be sitting quietly. Preferring to keep their opinions to themselves and humour high brow, the discussion of bodily functions, birthing of infants and the goings-on within bonds of marriage will be kept to themselves.
Sitting next to them will be a bunch of bloggers. Loud, raucous and definitely lower of brow in the humour stakes, they’ll be getting together to celebrate all things blogging.
If you’re in Sydney and you’re reading this then how about coming along? It could be the opportunity you’ve been looking for to meet that certain blogger in the flesh and thank them for brightening up your day. Maybe they wrote something that helped you figure something out or gave you a recipe that you are now taking full credit for in your circle of friends, like a friend of mine did 😉
Personally I’m looking forward to asking one particular blogger if they’ll be catching up with Colin Firth when they start filming Darcy Strikes Back later this year. There’s another blogger that I am looking forward to having a deep discussion with about the chances of me having an orgasmic birth.
So how about it? If you’re in Sydney most of the hard work is done. If you’re not in Sydney, who’s the blogger you would love to meet in real life? Or, what’s something that a blogger taught you?
If you’re keen the details are here.
Hope to see you there.

Darcy Strikes Back – that is the greatest concept I have heard all year! I would love to speak to that blogger too. Pure genius!
Thanks for planning this, always good to see friendly faces in real life. That day is the final day my hubby is away… it’ll have been five and a half weeks… so I’ll deserve a wee touch of R & R… IF I can get a pal to mind the kids.
Hope you can make it, Seana! x
Sounds great, I wish I was in Sydney so I could come 😦
I can only come for an hour or two, but I’ll do my best to get rowdy while I’m there. 🙂
Oh, I’m sure all it takes is a couple of hours for you to get rowdy, Danya 😉 x
I don’t think I can come now, I’ve been asked to participate in a naked photo shoot that day! hahahaha.
If I had a dollar for every time I’ve been given that excuse…
I’ve met a few Brissie bloggers, and had a great time, and one day hope to get to meet all you wonderful Sydneysiders too. Have the best time!!
I’ll be there!!! Looking forward to it!! #FYBF
Yays! Looking forward to meeting you! x
So jealous when I read about blogger meet ups. Damn me and living hours and hours away from somewhere decent.
Noice, Kev. Very noice 🙂 Thanks for all your help in getting the word out!
I’m coming, I’m coming, I’m coming!! And no that’s not an orgasmic birth. That’s just weird but be sure to discuss it with me on the 27th. After my third vodka.
Fantastic – We’ll see you there!!
Sending my apologies becuase I live in bloody Brisbane! However I have struck a deal with Kim from Falling Face First who is planning to attend – she is going to have a good time for both of us! Genius, yes? So if you see her with a glass of wine in both hands that’s because one of them is mine… in a metaphysical sense 😉
Promise to try my very hardest for you Rachel! What are you drinking, through me, metaphysically? 😉
I’m coming! You are meeting about five minutes walk from my apartment so I have no excuse really. Looking forward to it!
I’d actually like to meet you! Wish I could come, but a little something called 3 kids, work and no money are stopping me 🙂
Would have loved to, but hubby got in first and is out with the boys. I will be stuck at home with the “cherubs”! 😦
Oh Jodi. That’s a real shame but on the behalf of husbands everywhere I should probably say thanks.
I’m hoping to be having an orgasmic birth myself that day, or have had one in the week leading up to it. If I’ve not had that orgasmic birth and I’m still duffed and not due for induction till the next day then I may well be there. If I’ve had that orgasmic birth and I’m not still writhing in ecstasy from it then I’ll do my best to get there. If I’m in labour on the day then depending on what stage I’m at I’ll have to say maybe, I don’t know if pubs like patrons getting placenta on their floors!
I think that covers all possibilities!
Would it be weird for me to hope you have an orgasmic birth? Not quite sure how of the correct etiquette here
