The Blogger Meet-Up gave me the opportunity to become acquainted with the faces of fantastic people behind their blogs in the Lowcountry. The conversations were well rounded - refreshingly mentally stimulating with my evening ending in everyone enjoying laughter about South Park cartoons!
Whom I met from the Big Blogroll:
Heather Solos:“is a 28 year old professional blogger and stay-at-home-mom. She is the mother of 2 boys and also has a stepdaughter. Heather was a professional chef in her pre-kids life, but became a stay-at-home mom when she was pregnant with her first son. She works for Charleston.net, writing the Low Country Blogs roundup. She also keeps a personal blog, Moncks Corner Moments. Heather wants everyone to know you do not have to become the picture of Donna Reed or June Cleaver to be a successful SAHM.” Currently Heather is 23 weeks pregnant!
Heather Solos is also in partnership with Home Ec 101, “What You Wish Your Mama Taught You”.
Dave accompanied with Kathy. Dave has written a novel Prodigal Child ("Who among us is not our own worst enemy? Which of us does not wish for a second chance? Which of us does not have an inner artist trying to break free? Prodigal Child is a satisfying and charming read because it deals convincingly with these very personal, yet universal, issues.")
Dave:“I am an ex-framebuilder. My bikes have been ridden in the Tour de France, Olympics, and World Championships. My experience dates back to 1957, I retired from the bicycle business in 1993. This is a place where I post articles, stories, and personal thoughts primarily about bicycles.” Dave Moulton's Bike Blog
Two impressive young 22 year old Gentlemen, Jared and Kevin whom rekindled my hope for Society’s’ future:
Jared has co-written the book, Building Online Communities with Drupal, phpBB, and WordPress
Jared: “Hi, I’m Jared. No, not the guy from the prominent submarine sandwich chain — sorry to disappoint you. I’m 22, a Web designer, student, gadget geek, and…well…everything else under the sun living in Charleston, SC. I’ve done a lot: I’ve co-written a book, gotten halfway decent at designing a website, and…well, you’ll have to dive in a bit to find out. The website’s here to put my daily exploits on display, help me showcase some of the many things I do… JAREDWSMITH.COM”
Kevin: I am a 22 year old man who lives in South Carolina. I am interested in writing stories (science fiction, fantasy, or whatever else steals my attention for a while). I also like drawing, though most of my drawing seems to lean towards illustration. I have an interest in music, and can play the harmonica. At various times, I have felt some interest in design, learning the guitar, and videography, but I admittedly have some "focus" issues. I have currently finished a Book of Poetry that I am going to try to publish, God willing. I am also working on designs for a High Fantasy style novel, and a collection of dream-based paintings. Aside from these particular goals my only real goals are to keep doing what I am doing. Thank you for your interest in me and my site, not to mention my work…
Kevin has several excellent sites! Stones In My Passway… “(The blog, soapbox, and journal for the website Leaves Tremble On The Tree)” Several of his art and poems…. Can be found at Leaves Tremble On The Tree, To Consolate My Mind “(The philosophical side of Leaves, where ideas and curiosity is put down to paper, so to speak)”
