I’m going to BlogHer this year. I’ve been blogging for quite a few years (three +) and I’ve never been to any type of “event.” I find it hard enough to leave the house to pick up some El Pollo Loco to go let alone get my ass out of town for two days sans babies. But I’m doing it; putting on a brave face and saying hello to my fellow blog keepers; drinking; signing copies of my books (Sat. 12 – 12:45 with Stephanie Klein) and probably getting more sleep than I do at home.
The only problem is, I don’t know anyone who’s going and I’m all scared like I’m going to camp with no friends. Will there be a canteen? Where are the bathrooms? Who will like me and who will shun me? I’m not shy but I’m also not a joiner and not big on walking up to people, shaking their hand and saying, way too brightly, “Hi! I’m Stefanie from Baby On Bored dot blogspot dot com.” I’m more likely to say, “What up bitch?” and then alienate someone for the rest of the convention.
So, are you going?
Update on my book title (there are winners)

BTW : Dixlet, if you are reading, you and Undomestic Diva won my title contest. But I can’t contact you cause your blog doesn’t seem to exist. So email me, wontcha?
