Part I: BlogHer
Okay, so I've been pretty miffed that I'm not attending BlogHer this year. Especially when the conference theme is: How is your blog changing the world?
Well, I think I'm kinda, sorta, a little bit changing the world. I mean, I don't know one other Mom Blogger out there who's disabled (many apologies if you happen to be one. I just haven't found you yet. And if you're reading this and you are one, then by all means give me your URL! Let's get connected, join forces, and conquer the world!!!).
So, like, that's pretty noteworthy, isn't it? Yeah, I think so.
But, alas, it was not to be. Finances are not plentiful enough for me to get away. Maybe next year??? I really hope so. Because I've been bipping around to many of my favorite blogs and so, so many of them are reporting from the trenches of beautiful San Jose, CA. And the trenches are FUN! Cocktail-flowing, music-jammin', smiley, huggy, awesome FUN!
There's Alice, Amy, and Kathryn. There's Dawn, Amanda and Karianna. And let's not forget about Lena or Kelly! Plus so, so many more. OMG, to meet any of these admirable women in person would be amazing! They're famous, for Goodness sake!
I could have entered an essay contest, sponsored by MommyBloggers, to win tickets to this event. I did consider it. I even thought I could probably win it. But I just didn't do it. I don't know why. I really don't. I'm kicking myself that I didn't. But Kathryn did, and she won, which is awesome. I love reading her - she's funny, intelligent and has a great heart. Oh, and by the way, she's even got a brand new blog over at Parenting.com - so go check her out! Go, Go!! (But come back, please, pretty please).
So all these awesome, fun, smart, literary, sassy women are livin' it up and having a blast in sunny CA and, by golly, I'm going to be joining them next year! So help me, I will be there!
(Okay, now that that's off my chest.... Stay tuned for more of "Too Many Things..." coming soon to a computer near you).
