So there’s been this big hoopla centered around the blogging community, particularly women bloggers. They call their little community BlogHer. Apparently, there was some kind of BlogHer conference going on in New York City last weekend. All last weekend and this week, I read tweets and blog posts about the goings-on during this whole shindig and found out that most of my favorite bloggers are part of this community. And I’m all “What the hell? Why wasn’t I told that all these women had some kind of group thingie? And would someone please take out the dog already?!”
Somehow this community hasn’t noticed me yet. Why would they? Why should they? Again, as usual, and of course, I’m left out of the loop. I’m insignificant. Everyone is oblivious to me. It’s okay though, I’ll show them! I registered to their website. Maybe there’s something I can contribute to this community. Maybe not. Maybe they’ll all laugh in my face and kick me out. Maybe not. Either way, I have now infiltrated their little camp and I’m going to start taking down names. Because I will not be ignored.
Oh yeah. Sure, I’ll lurk and be all quiet-like for awhile. Observing… Watching… Waiting… Then BAM! I will make my presence known in a big way and they won’t have any choice but to invite me to some of these stupid events. Oh yeah. I am so in there. Then they’ll be sorry and be all like “Oh Marianne, are you going to such-and-such conference this year?”. And I’ll be like “Hmmm… I’ll have to check my schedule.” then wait like two weeks before confirming. Yep. I’ll show them.
