I am headed to Blissdom…
Blissdom is the premiere conference for women who find and express their bliss by publishing online. Blissdom ‘10, our third conference, is a welcoming oasis in the ever-changing blogging world. Speakers and panels featuring the best blogging, public relations and social media pros will be gathering to mentor new and old friends alike.
I am so excited. I love to learn. I love to blog. I love talking about social media. I love connecting with other bloggers. I love putting a face and a warm laugh with a twitter handle. Plus, the handsome crooner Harry Connick Jr. is going to sing me a song or two. I love it when handsome crooners sing me a song or two.
But as much as I am looking forward to it, I am kind of really nervous.
I’m nervous because sometimes large groups of women FREAK ME OUT. I know, I am a woman. I should feel right at home. But sometimes women in large groups squeal. And I don’t do squeal. I’m nervous because I have never been to a blogging conference before. I have only been blogging about 10 months and so I still a newbie. I have a lot to learn. And I am going to be surrounded by experience. I’m nervous because a lot of these women are “mommy bloggers.” I am a “get this off my chest” blogger and the occasional “doggy blogger.” And I’m nervous because the Opryland Hotel and Convention Center is massive. And I might get really lost and never find my way out.
All this to say…if you are going to Blissdom and see a girl who has a deer in the headlights look about her…it’s probably just me feeling a little freaky…so please stop and say hi. I promise not to bite.
