I can’t believe how fast this last week has gone. I’m only here in Toronto for another two days (and then have another day sitting on a plane).
After a very long week of b5 meetings with Jeremy and Mark, VCs and other Toronto based web start ups we took yesterday off to relax. After a long sleep in I spent a couple of hours with BJ Wong (Belle) from Working Blogger and (among other blogs). Belle’s reflections of our lunch are at Lunch with Darren.
Belle and I have been working together on a couple of blogs for a while now and it was fantastic to finally meet her in person.
It is amazing to meet bloggers like Belle in person. This past week I must have met 10 or so bloggers that I regularly read and on each occasion I’ve found them to be very similar to the way I had imagined them to be.
I often hear friends tell me that people pretend to be someone that they’re not online – but in 99% of cases where I’ve met bloggers the person ends up being very similar to their online persona.
Anyway – today I get to test the theory again when I meet Aaron – something I’m looking forward to!
