    Just curious if any geographic neighbors have made arrangements to meet in person.  I've discovered a few hubbers here in the pacific northwest, so it got me wondering.

      Also, maybe we should have a huge HubPages conference or something? That would be pretty wild, eh? We've talked about it, but it would be pretty tough considering that we're all over the world. But, even if we got only 30-50 to show up it would still be pretty awesome. smile

        I'd go, but I don't have that far to travel.  I think it would be a blast to see the office and meet other hubbers.  Oh yeah, and the staff.  smile

    I met the original HubPages team in SF in Oct 2007, and also met somelikeitscott in Vegas that same month.

      We also had Jenny into the office when she was here in San Francisco.  Had a great Thai lunch, and she hung out and played on the forums at my desk after I left the office.  It's a lot of fun to meet the people behind the usernames, so to speak.

      Unfortunately, Relache visited before I was hired on as a member of the team.

          We'd be happy to give you a tour of our (very small and unexciting) office, and have lunch or something.  Just let us know if you actually plan a trip!

            Thanks, Maddie, will do.  You might have wanted to pump it up a little more, but I'm okay with small and unexciting. smile I will however always get excited about a meal.

    I know Cherish in person and several people that went to school in Lake Arrowhead have commented on my hubs about the mountain.  One is living in Alabama and I have never met him, but it was pretty freaky being able to talk about certain places we were both familar with.

    A brand new Hubber named Annette just stopped by the office today for a little one-on-one HubPages tutorial from me. smile

    I think that's the first time this has ever happened, but it was pretty awesome hanging out with her while she was here. She lives only about 3 blocks away.

    This is me, Frank and Annette. smile

      CabinGirl are you sure about that I've heard that underneath that pirate attire BadCo is a pretty decent guy (hey but we'll let that be our secret). In fact he is one hubber I would love to meet in person. I'd also like to meet sufidreamer too and there is one little hubber here that I know personally because I gave birth to her. JLHanna is my daughter. She has been on hubpages for two weeks now.

    Well, my daughter, Dineane is a hubber. A writer I first met on a writer's forum, then we met in person a couple of times is Pacwriter, and I recuited my good friend Jackie Dove Miller who recently joined hubpages. I haven't met Rochelle in person but feel like I know her since we have been cyber-writer friends via two other writer forums for a few years.

    We seem to be attracting more  NC writers everyday so who knows which ones I've passed in the mall and not known it;o)

    Man, a Hubpages Conference!  I'm way over here in Tennessee.  I'd love to make that trip, though.  I imagine the fundraising for that one would be absolutely fun.

    We could have a Hubber Day? big_smile My idea is that each area could have their own big Hubpage party where local hubbers can meet each other.  Hah, I actually considered doing a Hub MeetUp on meetup.com.  I'd still go for the one big conference idea, though.

    So, no, I haven't met other hubbers.  I introduced a new hubber to the scene, but she refuses to make a hub yet.  Well, she's busy, I know. wink  We're both a NC native and she's still over there doing her busy business.

    I for one think it would be cool to meet other hubbers as i just enjoy meeting others... other people who write are on a level that is similar to the one I'm on and it's hard to find other writers to connect with.

    Hubbers are all too frightening for me. We're all a weird lot. Nobody would be able to get a word in edgewise I bet. But FYI Pest has a hubber meet planned at his place next July, 2010 over the 4th. All are welcome, must bring tent or camper.

    I've said it before, I think there should be an annual conference (similar to the Maui Writer's Conference) and simultaneously regional conferences in various countries and states.  Maybe even a virtual conference for those who can't attend. 

    The only hubbers I've met have been the two I'm related to -- mom and sister.

      I have not (to my knowledge) met any hubbers in the flesh, but hope to as I travel the world. In my dreams, I sail, bike, and drive all over the globe writing, drawing, taking photos, and interviewing Hubbers in their home habitats.
      Each Hubber could show me all the best things about their region and its people and together we'd write the coolest set of hubs about that place. Then, as much as it would be hard to part, I'd move along to the next Hubber and the next adventure.
