The Post-BlogHer Post

I AM thankful, overwhelmed, sick, and inspired.

I WANT to spend 24 solid hours reading and writing and reading and writing some more. And then sleeping.

I WISH I hadn’t read everyone else’s extremely thoughtful and delightfully written recap posts, so I wouldn’t be so stricken with performance anxiety.

I MISS Julie, and all of you who were there, and all of you who weren’t!

I HEAR that while I was gone, my mother-in-law taught my daughter a new word in quasi-, 2nd-generation Italian to describe my troublemaking toddler (patangala).

I WONDER how all you blogging babes got to be so darn gor-gee-ous.

I REGRET not meeting Supa and Julia and many others. And that Jennster never called me a whore (that bitch).

I AM NOT aspiring to make my living as a blogger. Dooce scared the pants off me in that regard.

I DANCE on the edge of exhaustion, at the moment.

I AM NOT ALWAYS a mommy although I am always someone’s mother.

I WRITE for fun, but I get paid to edit.

I CONFUSE “like” and “love” sometimes.

I NEED a laptop.

I SHOULD start reading the Huffington Post.

I START every day thinking about what I’m going to write next.

I FINISH every day thinking about what I’m going to write next.

I TAG no one because this meme has long since run its course.

Next up: A blogroll overhaul.

It's funny that many of us are all doing a blogroll overhaul since coming back.

Nice way to sum it up - and through a meme.

It was lovely meeting you.

I didn't realize how much I missed you until I got to see you again. We must make it a point to do this more often. Starting with your upcoming visit.

Along with everything else we've shared, I'm so glad that we can share blogging and writing too.

Glad you got home safely! It was so good to meet you in person. I've got a couple of friends now looking into laptops (computers, of course ;).

Ugh, I'm not looking forward to the work of the blogroll overhaul, but it DEFINITELY needs to be done!

I did not know what the Huffington Post was so I had to go visit.

I liked it. I was able to view the "THE VIEW" moment where Elizabeth Hasselbeck lost it over the morning after pill.

Movin'mom, Arianna Huffington spoke at the closing session at BlogHer--fascinating woman.

Excellent wrap-up, excellent use of this tired meme! I loved meeting you too, hottie. Don't be so modest.

Christina said...

Wow, all of that sounds familiar - oh yeah, maybe because I'm feeling the same way?

Don't let other recaps hold you back! I love all of the different versions, and I want to read your take on the event!

supa said...

Dang. I really regret not meeting you, too.

Hey there, Mayberry Mom! I think using a meme to be able to mentally cut to the chase in your Blogher redux is a brilliant move-- wish I'd thought of it myself.

I'm glad to have met you, and I look forward to reading more of your writing.
