Blogging in the 'Dena

Local blogging is alive and well in Pasadena, and the bloggers are a great crew to hang out with!

Just got home from the reasonably-semi-annually Pasadena bloggers picnic. Ok, it was really Foothill Cities, as the actual group who were there span an area from La Canada to San Dimas, and blog on everything from photography to journalism, to local politics.

Hubby and I decided to take the Princesses, and they were super well behaved. And of course, after running around the park all afternoon they are too pooped to pop! Both of them are napping on the bed at the moment.

Check out the blogs of the folks who were there:
Miss Havisham, who organized the whole shindig (YAY!)
Aaron Proctor
West Coast Grrlie Blather
Palm Axis
The Real Zajac
Pasadena Daily Photo
Eye Level Pasadena
LA Times Pressmens 20 year club

And I know I missed a couple of people, so if you were there and aren't represented, or you see someone not on the list, let me know in the comments.

It was great meeting you today, along with your hubby and pooch royalty. It was my first time meeting the local blog community in person and I had a blast.

I plan on posting these links, too. Thought I'd have to look up a few, but you've done my work for me. Thank you! The only one you missed that I'm aware of is up2daterealestate.com.

Again, great meeting you.

Okay, third comment and then I'll stop. Did EyeLevelPasadena really show up? I'm so bummed I missed her.

Yep Eye Level Pasadena showed up (Jill & Gavin!)

And thanks for the props, CTG! Very nice meeting you and your husband in person.

I had a great time..and nice to meet your cute dogs.

Yay! It was great to meet you. Thanks for the wonderful fruit!

I'm in love with your dogs, and the grapefruit!

Exceedingly tasty.

Thank you!

for clarification: I didn't taste your dogs, although I may have had a momentary lapse in judgment and licked one.

I'm bummed. I lost the post-it note about the "west of the Mississippi" college you spoke of. I'll figure it out and then I'll be on the net to discover more. You might enjoy Floyd's site. A very interesting ditty on the Dunbar Hotel if you scroll down a few entries.


A pleasure to meet you Ms Caltech

Darn it! I've got to get my ear back to the ground; I didn't realize this was happening. Oh, well: we'll have to have a blog-gathering once Hub and I get settled in Glendale.

(Moving on Memorial Day weekend!)
