A tribute to old and new blog friends

A get together of bloggers, otherwise known as a MOB =Meeting of Bloggers

Coined by a South African blogger in the Letterdash world, known as Colonialist many moons ago.

The word has a rather wild connotation. One describing a riotous and disorderly crowd of people. All the MOB’s I’ve been to, have been noisy, raucous with lots of laughter, but definitely not riotous. In fact, good fun has been had by all. I have been to many of these so-called MOBs over the past 3 years and enjoyed each and every one for different reasons. Contrary to popular belief, absent bloggers have seldom been discussed, although the medium of blogging and how it’s affected or affecting us personally may be discussed at length. The pros and cons, or the good and bad we each face on a daily basis. For example, when I embarked on my blogging past-time, some of my family couldn’t understand the dedication I gave to it. Each of us have bugbears we have to deal with with or for, our blogging journey. I find we speak a lot about that, as well as catching up on the personal side of our families and lives.

This past Saturday I attended another MOB with a lot of wonderful new Bloggers, with whom I’d connected recently on the Letterdash platform and a few with whom I had not yet engaged. As always, it’s wonderful to get together with old friends and meeting with the new ones as well, was just the cherry on the top.

Below are some of the tats which SOME of our lady bloggers sported. Harvey, eat your heart out dude :)

Sorry this one on the left was blurred…I’m not mentioning names :)

Sadly, my mate mg42 and Flim who travelled far, couldn’t stay as the venue wouldn’t allow children in. But at least we got to say hello. (I find it rather strange that a restaurant in the middle of a shopping mall, doesn’t cater for children during the day especially over lunchtime. I would understand if it was late afternoon/evening. The place wasn’t busy – the real partying only starts at night. They’ve lost a whole lot of future patrons! I won’t name and shame right now)

The pleasure was mine folks. I really loved meeting up with you all, Penny, Tamsin, Batty, Ghia, Cassie, Damsailor, Harvey, Soul Searcher, Tsunami and Emil. The party, became a souped up one and went on late into the evening with others joining later. Sadly I missed them, but there is only so long Granny Di can keep up with you youngsters :).

Have a good week all,

    Thanks for mention! I didn’t think anyone would remember the rhyme in which I suggested that MOB name!
