Happy Blogiversary RevGalPals

I just found out that it is RevGallPals' (sic - typo but will leave it in just to see if someone sees the sick slip) 1st blogiversary - I did not know it was so young! Here is the Friday Five and I will answer it to the best of how my feeble memory will allow my ability

1) What is your first memory of the RevGalBlogPals?
I think I stumbled upon Hazelnut Reflections' blog - perhaps saw a link to the ring, and saw RevGalPals blog - how I got invited, I think I would have to look at the comments on my blog to see who was crazy nice enough to invite me.

2) Have you met any of the other ring members in real life?
No, I don't think I have met anyone - I don't know everyone who is on here yet - since some are anonymous - however, I am pretty sure I have not!

3) Of those you haven't met, name a few you would love to know in person.
I can think of a few -- Mary Beth - we have emailed and found we know some folks in common and have crossed paths, but at different times (how do you explain that?) We have been to common places but in different years that are near and dear to our heart.
Others I would like to meet:
Songbird, Hazelnut Reflections (I am still enamored by her blog title since I am a fan of Julian of Norwich), LutheranChik, and St. Casserole (Still lover her blog name too)
I am going to leave a comment to these folks so they know!

4) What has Ring Membership added to your life?
I know I have "met" some neat folks and it has broadened my concept of the larger church - not just of my church tradition, but of those that go beyond that. There are some blogs, by just reading their blogs, I would feel right at home in their church homes just by reading what they have to say.

5) Describe a hope for the future of the WebRing.
Do we go out searching for others to join us? Or do others find us through the links on our page? (sort of like real life evangelizing isn't it?.. well sort of..) and then...when does a web ring become too big? Will we become a mega church ring?
Ooooh, wouldn't a trivia tournament be fun? :)
Is there a birthday calendar? We can hit their blog on their special day! Site meter would love that!

Happy Blogiversary RevGalPals!

I think we're going to have a Frappr map soon, but I don't think anyone has considered a birthday calendar. Hmmmm....

Heh. That was ME.

Mary Beth said...

Birthday calendar rocks!

I can't wait to meet you, either, and we are going to make it happen. I need to be dipped in some salt water, soon.
