Kuki, That reminds me what happened a couple of weeks ago. I was at the grocery store after work, and still had my name tag on. A lady behind me and I got to talking. She noticed my name and said she read a message board, and there was a lady on there with my name. I smiled and asked her if she cruised. She said yes, and I said Cruisemates, and she said yes, with a smile. She asked if my little boy was with me. Behind me was this towering teen, and we got a big laugh out of it.
When we were coming back from our cruise last week, got on the airplane, and I was seated just a couple of rows back of the bulkhead. As they closed the doors to the aircraft, I noticed a seat at the bulkhead open, and asked the flight attendant if I could take it since it was open.
I sat down next to a couple, and the lady sitting next to me was talking about the cruise they just finished on Caribbean Princess. I told her we had just got off two cruises. I started to say I write for..... and she said "I know who you are!".
She said, she doesn't post, but she knows the site, and therefore knew me.
I have had people in mid-Minnesota who have seen me and said. "You're the bald guy on Cruisemates." They actually were from my hometown so my name rang a bell.
However, people have recognized my name Cruisemates t-shirt on cruises and when I have worn it on land. It's nice to talk, face to face, with people who have been on the site. They often will ask cruise questions and almost all of them are going on a cruise.
I know that while there are fairly large number of folks who post a lot, there are tens of thousands of people who come here to read and find information. That's why it would be great for our seasoned cruisers, if they are so inclined, to share their knowledge on some of our other boards. We have some of the most knowledgeable cruisers, on the net, and our boards reflect it.
