I have been blogging since 2009, and my first meet up was a year later, when a blogger from Samarinda, Akin, came to Jakarta, and then we met with 3 other bloggers ; Bu Edratna, Didot and Yessy. I was nervous to meet new friends for the first time, I did not how to react. I was afraid they would not find me a nice person. But, to my surprise then it went really fine.
After the first meet up, I felt addicted to it. Why could it be? When I met a new friend from virtual world it seemed like I talked to an old friend, because we have known each other from the posts.
I wrote all the meet up with fellow bloggers in Indonesian, under the category kopdar. I have met more than 40 bloggers in different times and places, I met them not only in Jakarta but also when I went to Denpasar, Bandung and Bukittinggi.
The meets up took place in restaurants or hotels, and in a historical trip with BatMus. I met many bloggers when Imelda came home from Tokyo and in the event of Srikandi Blogger 2014. Here at the latest even I also met one of our famous BEC admins, Dani. Unfortunately, in a place with so many participants we did not have time to know each other more.
The longest kopdar was a family trip to Bukittinggi with elje (4 days in 2012) and kopdar baralek also in the same province last year with 3 other bloggers, Bunda Lily, Inon Putri Usagi and Titik.
Some of them have been very good friends that easily lend their hands when I need help in blogging things. Oh, talking about meet up suddenly I am longing to have more kopdar. It has been a year since the last kopdar with Srikandi Blogger.
