BlogHer : Words / Phrases of the Weekend

First off the Road Trip with Erika & Lauren to BlogHer 2005 rocked. So did the conference.
Next off, words or phrases from the weekend:
1) Mommy Bloggers : Somewhat maligned in some circles, but in Ms. Jen’s world the Mommy Bloggers were AMAZING! Fun, enthusiastic, intelligent and they all partied like rock stars.
In the 1950s, Madeline L’Engle was a Mommy Writer in a small Connecticut town, she wrote for at least 30 minutes a night after her kids went to bed and was rejected by publishers for years until FS&G showed some love to “The Wrinkle in Time“, and then the book won the Newbury Award in 1963.
Mommy Bloggers – be encouraged, write, love your fellows and your kidlets, continue to write, and you will be a blessing.
2) Technorati 100 : Really, folks, does it matter? There are millions of bloggers and we can’t all be in the top 100. Who cares if they are all men, except Dooce and Xeni of Boing Boing?
As of 7/31/05, my Technorati rank is: 81,765 (29 links from 24 sites)… aka… I suck. Really, who cares? The best part about Technorati is not their Top 100 Bloggers List, but they employ hot men (TC… NK… DP…). ;o)
And last but not least…
3) Tastefully Tye Dyed Polyamorous Elves…. (this phrase is brought to you by a very long drive south down the 5).
Need I say More?
Ok, I will a bit… since Contentious came out as Polyamorous in the Naked Panel, and Dooce came out as Monogamous, I will officially come out right here on this blog as … Celibate-until-the-right-lovely-intelligent-strong-backboned-man-is-located-then-I-will-be-monogamous-with-him… or I-am-a-bore… or I-am-a-liberal-libertarian-who-loves-Jesus… or…
That’s All Folks…
p.s. A big hello to / glad to meet you /chat with you this weekend to: Anina, Jelly, Ginevra, Debi, Jenn, Jenny, Meghan, Matt, Mena, Nichelle, Liza, Whitney, Barb, Niall, Danah, and all the other BlogHer attendees & organizers rock hard!
p.p.s. A certain Mr. George Kelly appears on the BlogHer blog roll, but I did not see him anywhere all weekend. MIA George?
p.p.s.s. A big thank you to the organizers of BlogHer!
