So Cal Personal Finance Bloggers

Last Saturday afternoon, a diverse group of bloggers met at the Dave & Busters in Irvine.  This was the first meeting of the So Cal Personal Finance bloggers, organized by Len Penzo.  The turn-out was good for our first meeting and some of the people travelled quite a distance.  I’ve read most of their blogs for years and I looked forward to meeting everyone in person.  It was difficult to chat with everyone, because of the seating.  But, I had a really nice time.

I wanted to extend a special thanks to Go Banking Rates for sponsoring this event.  I didn’t expect anyone to buy me a beer and some appetizers and I appreciated their generosity.  I also enjoyed chatting with Briana, Henry, Danielle and Zuli.

The Bottom Line

The bottom line is that blogging is a social media.  Commenting and interacting with others is a big part of the fun.  You feel like you know some people, even though you’ve never met.  Meeting these people in person was truly special.
