Alright, those of you who just don't think you can fit this into your schedule, think again!  Here are some very good reasons to get off your duff and come on out and meet up with some really cool people:

10.  Active Rain members are very saavy and cool!

9.   One can ALWAYS take a break to meet new people!

8.   Libations after work can be great therapy!

7.    Did I mention that Active Rain members are cool?

6.    Finally meet IN PERSON those people you interact with daily via Active Rain.

5.    Did I mention that you NEED a break?

4.    Life is short - do something for yourself!

3.    It is FUN to get together with like-minded souls!

2.    Active Rain people understand your lingo; long tails, short tails, links, blogsphere, key works, etc.


Those of you in the Houston area - PLEASE come out tomorrow night at The Cru Bar at MARKET STREET!  I would love to meet YOU!  We are cool and we will have fun!  :)

I guess cool is the word of the day.  There is certainly a lot to be said for networking in other towns and areas.

Hey David, you should.  They are fun and it is great to meet everyone in person.

And yes, "cool" seemed to be the word of the day for me in this post. 

Hope you both are having a productive and wonderful day!

Whenever I have a RainMeet, I always look at it as an opportunity to relax and unwind with a bunch of folkes that understand the stresses and craziness that I deal with everyday!

Paula - I have been to two of them locally (well, one was actually about 40 miles away) but they were both great.  I enjoyed meeting some of our local luminaries like Gene Mundt, Alan May, Lynn Simms and Dean Moss.  We didn't do the most recent one, but perhaps next time.

So true Loreena.  I wish you lived closer so we could see one another again!

Margaret, how cool that you met all of those great Rainer's!  What fun that must have been!  I follow those guys!  Did you take pictures?

Have a great week.

Those sound like a bunch of cool reasons to attend an AR meet up Paula.

How was it? Sorry I couldn't come. I twisted my ankle the day before so by the end of the day it was swollen. I hope you had a great time.

I bet that Kerrie could provide 100 good reasons.  There is much to learn.

Have a great day and an outstanding weekend.
