House Party

So, this week about half of the people I follow on Twitter are in Chicago. There's a little thing called the BlogHer conference going on there, and I am sure all those people are having THE BEST TIME OF THEIR LIVES.

Yes, I am jealous. Not so much about the blogger stuff (as you can see, I'm not the world's *best* blogger), but I am jealous that all of those awesome people that I'd love to meet get to hang out with each other alllll weekend while I have to be content with reading their tweets from the comfort of my home. It is seriously a current life goal to meet some of the amazing women whose words I read every day. And all of them together at once? Must be fantastically ridiculous.

Fortunately for people like me who are home this weekend, there is BlogHer@Home. I was immediately on board for this (HELLO! GIVEAWAYS!), but wasn't sure how it was going to play out. Tonight was the first night of festivities and it was (except for the annoying spammers) amazing! A few of the ladies used their webcams to talk with and it was fun to put voices and faces with the twitter avatars. Some of my friends won the some sweet giveaways, and there are now plans of a trip to Austin to twitpic while Magda gets her ears pierced. All in all a very eventful Thursday night at home.

Okay, for real. Twitter? Webcams? Avatars? Twitpic? We sound like a bunch of freaks, but BlogHer@Home girls? I love us.


  1. I love us too! It was really very fun last night. I had such a crappy day and wow, was my mood improved just chatting with so many awesome people! (The Starbucks card didn't hurt either!)

    Can't wait to chat with you later! Love it! Love that we get to do something a little more exciting than the normal (which is also fun) while the rest of our crew smooches in Chicago!!! :)

  2. I am glad I got to "meet" you and I am looking forward to being in NYC next year with you. We will be the women that others are jealous of and would like to meet!

  3. So glad ya'll had a fun BlogHer@home. So wish you could have been in Chicago. NY next year, we're are so there.

    Have a fun cruise.
