For Illinois bloggers and surrounding areas…

I’ve been asked by many of you if we are going to have a get together for local bloggers. 
I would love to get something organized, so here are my questions. Which months are better for you? middle of July or middle of August…?
And… Saturday morning, Sunday afternoon, or week night?
 It will be in the Naperville area so you kind of have an idea of the location.
We had such a great time at the last one, I would love to meet all of you and see some old friends too. Lurkers are also welcome to come and meet some of their favorite local bloggers.

So let me know!

  1. Awesome! I would say middle of August and the Saturday or Sunday would work both fine! Thanks for organizing!

  2. Sorry to be off topic, but I was admiring the paint color in the kitchen pictures! It’s really a beautiful color, is this your kitchen? Would you be willing to share the paint color?
    Thanks. Really enjoy your blog.

  3. Jen,
    I WOULD love to come.I am way out in Woodstock but…..I do know Naperville.I used to work at Elegante salon years ago when I was still working.June is crazy busy for me.End of school activities,party’s etc.But end of July is better.Weekends would also work I would be traveling far and would need to wait for my husband to get home.How about a Saturday or Sunday brunch?I would bring anything you would need.

  4. Sunday afternoon would be best since I do farmer’s market on Saturday. It is so terrific to get together with other bloggers and get inspired and re-energized.

  5. OMG …I have been following your blog for such a long time and did not know we both live in the same town. Sunday afternoon would be the best! I am so looking forward to this!

  6. Ohhhhh I would love to join in! It would all depend on the day and time but I would love to be kept in the loop because I just adore the idea of getting to know blogging friends in real life! I am here from the midwest bloggers group!!! :o) so glad you joined!! I look forward to getting to know you!

  7. Jen,

    I’m here in Chicago and would love to get together with fellow area bloggers. I’ve actually been “collecting,” if you will, URLs from area bloggers and adding them to my sidebar. I’ll be sure to add you and those in the comments thread too. And if you’d like, I’ll send them this link too.

    Mid August we tend to be in Florida at some point between camp ending and school starting. There’s only one Saturday (the third) in July that doesn’t work. Otherwise, I’m pretty wide open and flexible on day of week and time …



  8. Oh Jen I was so hoping that you would have another get together this year. I would love to be included. You know how much I love all of you blogger gals! Any month, day or time is good for me………

  9. Stopping by from the midwest bloggers and I would love to make it if I can. I’m in southeast MI, but if timing, etc. worked, that would be so fun! A Saturday or Sunday would work, I would just have to come in a day ahead or something like that. We go on vacation in both July in August, so it would just depend what weekend it landed on.

  10. A big thanks to Linda (it all started with paint) for introducing me to a fellow blogger from IL. We are practically neighbors! I am in Wheaton. I would LOVE to get to know other local bloggers. I am really flexible so count me in! I am also your newest follower!

  11. Not to sound too much like a stalker…I am POSITIVE I’ve met you at the flea market before. Rain, shine or snow we go…the torrential downpour last week didn’t stop us either. Where are you usually set up?

  12. Hi Jen, Imagine my surprise to see my face on your blog…Yikes!!! We’re still waiting for our baby grand, but I hope to see you at Anne Marie’s this weekend. Name the day for a blog event and I’ll try and be there! Love, Penny

  13. hey jen….either time/months works for me, although summer is so busy on the weekends that an evening would probably give me a better chance of making it….i would like to co-ordinate shopping in a new area around the blog party {maybe with new blog friends haha}….so i can shop before i come in the evening, or after on the weekends.
    thanks for organizing this again…i had FUN at the last one!

  14. Hey There Girlfriend! I heard thru the grapevine that you posted about another gathering…YAY! I am good late July and August we are out of town first part of July and August…

  15. Gosh I’m so interested in getting together with other local Illinois bloggers. It’s like being part of a family. Anytime after June is open for me! Can I help in any way?

  16. Hi, I’ve been blogging all by myself up by Lake Zurich, and would LOVE to meet other local bloggers!! This is a great idea. Weekends are easier, late July or August. We might be visiting India in early-mid July, but if I can make a get-together, I will!

  17. Hi, Jennifer.
    What an amazing idea to have a blogging get-together!
    Have always wanted to learn about hosting a blogging get-together and meeting other creative bloggers in person. I live in St. Louis. 🙂
    I loved your article in Artful Blogging magazine and how you wrote that blogging has been a big part of your journey!
    Wishing you all the best,

  18. I don’t have a blog {yet} but I would love to meet up with people to chat about the experience. I’m hoping to start a blog once I buy a house this summer. I live in Schaumburg area but am looking to move to Lombard or Villa Park.

  19. This sounds fantastic! I will be at Haven 2012 Conference the end of June but otherwise, I would love to join the bloggy party!
    Thank you for organizing!
