It Will Be Blissfully Delicious

I have taken the plunge and signed up for my very first blogging conference. It’s like continuing education for bloggers. I am so excited I can hardly stand it. Remember back here when I talked about the reaction I get from people who don’t understand blogs or people who blog? You should see what happens when you tell people you are going to a blogging conference. Seriously stops people in their tracks.

But I press on. Cause it is the chance to meet a whole lot of “friends” I have never met before. And a chance to meet some I have met, but am desperate to hang out with again. And a chance to obsess endlessly about what I will wear and if people will think my hair is cute and my sense of humor is really funny in real life. It’s like going back to a high school reunion but with people you’ve never met. So who knows if you will end up the homecoming queen or the band geek (no offense to any band geeks out there, I wear my show choir badge with pride).

When I started this blog, I really didn’t think anyone besides my hubby and mom would read it. And it is so delightful that you all do. I can’t tell you how fun it is to read your comments everyday and feel like I am making friends. Every time someone leaves me a comment telling me how much they like my blog or how funny I am, I want to stand up all Sally Field like and say, “You like me you really like me!!” So I am really excited to learn how make this blog even better and take it to the “next level.” Ha, I just wrote that and have absolutely no idea what that could possibly mean.

Anywho, I am going. Are you? Cause you should. It will be so much fun. And the perfect thing to ask for for Christmas. If for no other reason then to see the face of the person you are asking when you mention you want money to go to a blogging conference to hang out with some total strangers that you met on the internet. That look, my friends…priceless.


  1. I wish! LOL Don’t know you guys can afford it in this economy. DaHubby and I aren’t even exchanging gifts this year. Kids getting homemade and hand-me-down gifts. No credit cards here (thank you Dave Ramsey) and have too many other things (car tires, swim lessons, birthday parties, etc.) to save for to have enough cash by then.

  2. Conferences are so fun, but I always end up having to share a bed with the “weird” person. lol

    I’m going! I can’t wait!! (I just need to register…that might help…)

    oh amandas last blog post..Oh, that Pirate. He’s a funny one.

  4. LMAO! Thanks for the mental image! I would “love” to go to one of these conferences… if someone would just decide to host one in Seattle I’d be all over it! Even Portland, heck, let’s go international and have it in Vancouver! Show the Northwest some love people! ;)
    But for this particular weekend we already have plans… I bet my weekend will be hotter than yours… marriage retreat sans kid! ;)

  5. You just expressed all of my feelings. I was at Bunko this week trying to explain blogging to some of the ladies. Even the ladies that knew about blogging were amazed that people nation wide read my blog and that I have advertisers and am
    “a real blogger”. I am amazed myself sometimes and I have the same Sally Field experience.

    I really, really, really want to go, but it is not going to happen this year. :( I second Krista, show the NW some love blogging world!

  7. I’m DEFINITELY going – just have yet to register. And I will before year end!! Let me know if you decide to fly or drive since we’re coming from the same general neck o’ the woods! I’m looking forward to a little vacation in the middle of winter weather.

    sarahs last blog post..Oh DADS!

  9. Too cool! I would love to go, but I have no idea what I would do with four kids for a whole weekend. My blog will have to remain in the stone ages for now. ;) I hope you have fun and bring us back some ideas!

  10. Mama Koala says:

    How fun! Looking forward to reading all about it once you return…also would love to hear more about the reactions you are getting;-)

    I can just imagine my Grandmother’s reaction if I were to go to a blogging conference….she’d worry that I was going to meet a bunch of crazy people, and would definitely be concerned for my safety. Come to think of it, she’d probably stand behind my car if I tried to drive to the airport–blocking my way!

  14. Yea, I got a blank stare from my husband and then heard him laugh hysterically when I tried to explain to him what Blissdom and the BlogHer conference were.

    Silly folks and their no blogging.
