I’m often behind the times on pop culture or latest happenings. Ok, more like, I’m aware of it, but I ignore it and then kind of catch up to it later and then wonder what the hell I was waiting for, and get all gung ho.
The first Blogher conference was held half an hour from my house. I debated going. I thought, hey, that might be a cool idea. But I felt a little awkward about it, mainly because I wasn’t sure if anyone I knew was going, and normally, that might not stop me, however, I was going through a particularly tough summer. I had just suffered a miscarriage after a very surprise pregnancy, and it completely threw my world off my axis, especially given that someone close to me found out they were pregnant during that time. It took heavy anti-depressants and a lot of therapy to get through that mess.
So, the short story is, I never ended up going. And then I heard that the whole thing was kind of weird, and you know, life just kind of happened. So here I am five years later, and I’m finally getting on the bandwagon. I spent the last five years being a quiet blogger. And this year, for some reason, I feel the need to be all OMG, I’m totally into all things social media. I’m trying to find my individuality after nearly three straight years of babyhood.
So this year, I’ve purchased my tickets to Blogher, strong armed some roomates, and am ready to abandon leave the kids with the Meester for the weekend. Who’s going this year? I’d love to see the faces of the people inside the internet.
