The Antisocial Blogger...

Some Caffeine Court blog stats:

Number of years blogging: 2

Number of bloggers I've met face to face: 0

Number of bloggers I've actually had a conversation with: 3



Pretty sad huh?

But I HAVE been making progress! As of a few months ago the number of bloggers I've actually had a conversation with was at ZERO.

So now it's time for a little contest.

Can you guess which 3 bloggers I
talked to on the phone?


I'll give you some hints.

Blogger #1 is a tennis player and mom to one gorgeous daughter. She's a world traveler and you could bounce a quarter off her husband's abs.

Here's a quote from her blog: Finally living my happily ever after in my own little tropical paradise. I am a mother first, recently married, I curse a lot, and yeah we're just a little nuts.

Blogger #2 is a complete hoot. This girl is pure energy and personality. You can't help but smile when you talk to her. Oh, and she's sooo SOUTHERN. I felt like Carmela Soprano compared to her.

Here's a quote from HER blog: "a willingly transplanted Midwestern girl living in the South." "...you'll either love me or hate me, but you'll laugh either way."

I am most ashamed that I have never met Blogger #3 in person. She lives 5 minutes from my house. She is a runner and an avid reader. She also writes for a couple of websites under an alias. We discussed attending BlogHer together this summer and one day VERY soon, we are going to meet for coffee.

And finally, a hint from Blogger #3's blog: "A place where I can vent about mommy hood without annoying my husband."


So there you have it.

Just to make things interesting, I'm going to offer a little prize to one random commenter who attempts to guess the identities of Bloggers 1, 2 and 3.

In keeping with the theme of my blog, the lucky winner will receive a $25 Starbucks Gift Card!!!


*APPLAUSE* yeah, I know, $25 doesn't get you far at Starbucks...but what do you expect from me? I'm not made of money!


Here are the rules.

1. If you happen to be Blogger 1, 2 or 3, you can't enter. (Sorry, it's the price you pay for being my friend...)

2. If you are related to me and you know the answer, you can't enter. But I WILL buy you a latte the next time I visit. If you DO guess and ruin the contest, I'll kick your butt next time I visit.

3. The contest ends Sunday, November 1st at 11:59 PM.


Now a little legal junk:

Caffeine Court is not liable for any burnt tongues or over caffeination and jitters caused by products purchased with the Starbucks gift card. Also, remember that there are alot of empty calories in some of those triple pump frappuccinos.

Contest not valid in Bangladesh, Greenland and the Czech Republic. Many will enter, one will win.



Let the games begin!!!

Ok, I remember you talked to Mrs. K about tennis. That's my only guess, no clue about the other two.

I've met one blogger in person, although there are tons of bloggers around here. Even got called out in somebody else's comments as rude because I didn't introduce myself (they post pictures of themselves....I don't). Guess that makes me antisocial as well.

#2 is C.G. and #3 is MommyVents. #1 sounds familiar, but i don't have time to research b/c I have a sick boy. you didn't include a stat about your blogger facebook friends! I am one!

#3 Mommy Vents

I've only met one blogger, ha MOTR!
We had a great time too! And she's not antisocial (we had a 3 hour lunch) she's just demure :)

Dr Zibbs said...

I'm sure we'll meet someday. Even though it would be sooner than later if you'd leave more comments on my blog. Seriously, why don't you ever comment on my famous blog THAT BLUE YAK?

The Chic Chauffeur said...

Yay. Mrs K, Clemson girl and mommyvents. Call me sometime! Come to KS, I'll show you a good time in the Midwest!!

Kate said...

2 is Clemsongirl...3 I feel like I should know but can't think of it. 1 -- no idea. And $25 at Starbucks will buy almost 6 Venti Peppermint Mochas...that should last a week!

The Major's Wife said...

I only know #2, Clemson Girl fun post

k e r r y said...

The beautiful Mrs K is blogger #1!

Next trip to MD You can add me to your list if you're up for it and as long as you don't make play tennis!!

Kel said...

1= Mrs. K
2= clemsongirl
3= Mommyvents

Houses, Couches and Babies said...

Here is my stab at it:
1 is Mrs. K
2 is clemsongirl
3 is mommyvents

I will admit I may have looked at previous comments for help.

And yes, I agree that it is strange that you feel like you know people through the blogging world yet you never have officially met them. I guess that is a big deal to us because we grew up in a time where you only met people in person. Remember when talking on the phone was a treat?!? Now it is such a nuisance!

I hope that you are able to meet face to face more bloggers, or at least talk to them on the phone.

I didn't mean to delete my comment earlier :-0 I wanted to add that it's crazy that I live in an HOUR from a Starbucks... and people say they are on every corner ;-)

Just Ask Beth said...

#1 Mrs.K
#2 Clemson Girl DUH!
#3 Mommy Vents!!

preppyplayer said...

1. Mrs. K- those abs are memorable!
2. Clemson girl & coach
3.Feener- mommyvents-

I've met two bloggers, Ina from Alaska and Only Half Nuts.
It was so nice and odd at the same time. I felt like I knew them so well and we had just met...
I consider them both good friends.

Ned said...
