    Unfortunately, I haven't and I think it's because most of them don't live anywhere near where I live.  It would be really great though if the chance came up.  I've seem some incredible work in these articles, so it would be neat to have real face-to-face discussions with them to see what kind of people they are like.

    I suggest if you have the opportunity to hook up with a fellow hubber to go for it. I have a few other hubber hook ups in the works smile

    Great question!  Yes, I have met at least one Hubber in person (who lives in my city), and traded personal messages and phone calls with several others.  I never thought I'd make new friends through writing here, but that's how it feels.

    I highly recommend meeting Hubbers and getting to know them - it's a way to support each other and to get advice when you need it. Writing is a very isolated type of work, and connecting with other writers helps you feel less alone.  I'm hoping there's a meet-up in my area at some point.

    Great question! I have spoken to Arb, a Hubber who lives about a hundred miles from me, and was a part of a series of Hubs he suggested called The Journey, with a total of 15 other writers. We plan to meet at some point, maybe this summer. The only other one that I know of in Oregon would be fun to meet also.

    This may not count, but it was someone I already knew through email and long distance phone calls who became a hubber and then got me to join Hubpages, too.  But we didn't physically meet until a year or so later.  Other than that, I've never met another hubber in person, although there were a couple of meets planned that didn't materialize due to scheduling conflicts.
