Bloggers are grateful for every click, comment and e-mail. But how far would you go to thank loyal readers of your blog? Humor blogger Georgia Getz is making the rest of us look bad, driving more than 10,000 miles to meet the folks who leave comments on her blog, I Am Bossy.
She’s even ditching her husband and kid for the trip. (Now you have no excuse!)
The five-week trip (in a hybrid provided by Saturn) is designed to put faces to names and help further develop relationships that have formed online.
Currently underway, you can get in on the action. So far, over 260 bloggers across 207 cities have signed up to take part in the adventure. From offering Georgia a place to crash, to just stopping by to say ‘hi,’ if you believe strongly about the relationships forged between bloggers and readers (and other bloggers) then this is a road trip that will interest you.
Depending on how it goes, the next leg of the journey might go international.
Here’s the big question: Would you let one of your favorite blog writers crash on your couch?
Man, I dig the blog style of dudes like Michael Arrington and Darren Rowse, but for some reason, I feel like they’d keep me up all night, click-clacking obsessively on their keyboards. Plus, I know nothing about their hygiene, sleeping habits, etc. And from what I know about prolific writers…well, let’s just say, some folks are better knowing from afar. (I also only have one full bath).
I certainly can use a vacation from the New York scene. So, whadya say? What time should I be there?
