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.
There is a hubber who is my husband, my son, a friend from childhood and a friend from our Army days. So I have many experiences. My friend and I have lunch about twice a month and talk about little else than writing on HP - except our grandchildren!
Yes I have! I met Docmo last week. He traveled to Orlando from the UK on a family vacaction and we met up. It's very exciting to meet a virtual friend in reality. He's truly the real deal. 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
Not yet! I say that because I certainly would love to. I know some would be impossible due to distance but I know others would not. Someone mentioned a hubbers convention....think of the possibilities!
I was remembering it yesterday - with some effort I remembered the name "Amadeus" and some face all in chocolate, but I can't remember the name of that restaurant - the greatest of its kind in Toronto. I think you have been very modest, Mr. Happy.
This is at the top of my "bucket list." And if anyone out there in hubland is in the Nashville, Tn. area - let's meet up. Or for that matter, I invite all of you to come and visit Nashville - the music city. Wouldn't it be fun to rent out the Hilton Hotel? Gosh, I'm getting so excited:)
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.
Not yet. I am also keen to meet a fellow hubber like Stricklydating who has always supported my hubs. All those who are fellow hubbers appear to be friendly people too.. Hoping to meet them in person in the years to come and if it happens,. it would be a matter of great pleasure to me. Thanks for sharing this interested issue..
I have met local people face to face that I originally met in Internet marketing course forums that also write hubs. It is a so much fun and the common interest serves as a solid connection to build a friendship on.
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.
I met fellow hubber Sunshine625 ( Linda Bilyeu) as I am vacationing in Orlando. It was a great experience and amazing to see how much her online presence is the real deal and then some. I intend to meet more hubbers as I travel quite a lot... it is enriching, rewarding and exciting. Hope to catch up again with Sunshine ( what an apt name!) before I leave to UK. great question!
I have just now come upon your question, and what a great one that is. Meeting a fellow hubber would be a really interesting experience, since every one has so much to say in his writing. I would be happy to meet any body in the New York metro area if he/she would contact me through HP.
Thanks for appreciating the question. I also enjoyed all the answers here. I wish your desire, to meet some HP friends in the New York metro area, is fulfilled. I am sure it would be a memorable experience. Thanks and have a nice day.
With all the silliness and high school drama that is all the rage these days I thought I would balk the trend with this forums thread. Instead of complaining about this or that hubber I ask you to say something nice...
I just learned from a special friend here on HubPages that our beautiful Hubber friend, Skye2Day has gone on to be with the Lord. Skye (Patti) has been a member of HubPages for seven years! She has not been...
