I like blogging, so it’s no surprise that I like bloggers and talking about blogging.
This weekend, I planned a dinner party for a few local bloggers and it was so much fun that I plan to do it again and again! I intentionally decided to invite a few women over who I didn’t know well, with the exception of a couple. I also intentionally chose women with different kinds of blogs; I wanted variety…and I got it!
We talked about why we began blogging, we talked about SEO, we talked about stats, we talked about politics, religion, and sex. We ate, we laughed, we spun off onto tangents. It was perfect!
I made my walnut crusted pork chops, Pioneer Woman’s buttered rosemary rolls, wild rice with bacon and dried cranberries, and hearts of romaine with homemade ranch dressing. I set a fancy table, because that makes me incredibly happy. I even bought fresh flowers!
We laughed about the fact that at a bloggy dinner, it’s totally fine to be on your phone. We tweeted and insta’d to our hearts’ content.
Especially, when I brought out the pièce de résistance…a marvelous cake made by my friend Grace of Cakes.
We had so much fun talking that we NEVER left the table to sit in the living room! And we didn’t even know that it was nearing midnight before they all left!
Many thanks to Laura (Hollywood Housewife), Maggie (Gussy Sews), Kara-Noel, and Andrea (For the Love Of…), and Elizabeth Esther for joining me for dinner. My first bloggy dinner party was a success because of YOU!
