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:

All Jacked
Subdivided We Stand
2 Political Junkies
Central Park Bench
It’s important to be warm
Froth Slosh B’Gosh
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. 🙂
