I have now checked another one off, a guy: Stevie B. Or his mirror site: Stevie B.
I can totally relate to Stevie's issue of trying to move from Blogger to WordPress. I attempted the same thing years ago and ran two different, but same, sites concurrently. I tried to make the leap, but it didn't work. As you might know, I went back to Blogger as my editor years ago.
I think Stevie felt he wasn't alone in this dilemma, but on the other hand, I gave him no encouraging outcome (sorry about that!).
I stumbled across NTSSB and I do not know how. I think it was when looking at who was referring to my site, his URL came up, so I checked it out. Clearly I liked his style and his humour, as I blogrolled him right back, asking permission before doing so, of course. He seemed thrilled with the idea.
Ok, maybe "thrilled" is a little too much, but he didn't say "no'. So that was my take away.
If you discount the three folks I know (and I do!) who has/had a blog, Stevie B now makes the 4th one I have met. All of them I have had drinks and/or eats with, so it's not just a 'hey, how's it going' kind of thing. Steive was no different.
I gave him the head's up I was coming to Denver and he drove the 20 miles from Boulder to meet me for lunch. We walked down the main street till we found a place to grab a burger and beer - and we had a nice talk about blogs, biking, growing up, partners. You know - the norm.
It's a good picture of him, but I'd say it doesn't do him complete justice. He's a looker, and he's got an incredible pair of chompers on him. I bet his dentist loves him.
So it was nice to see and be with Stevie B for a few hour just eating, drinking and gabbing.
