Blogger Summit Update #2
Nine days. It had been nine whole days since I had so much as looked at the “add new” post button before I wrote my blogiversary post yesterday. Nine days in internet time is equal to about nine months in real-time. I could have had a blog baby for all you know. Don’t get any ideas, I wasn’t off making blabies. What I was doing was visiting with an incredible blogger from the Motor City. You probably know him as Adam from My Right to Bitch, The Artist Formerly Known as My Right to Bitch, or more recently Live From Motor City or maybe just that hilarious drummer dude that I was lucky enough to virtually drink fake sake with that one time.
That’s right, he drove
himself insane all the way down here to Louisiana to hang out, help me fix my poorly assembled bar stools (ten cool points for anyone who remembers this old ass post), drink beers with me and introduce Jack to the joys of chewing gum. The experience was well deserving of an Adamesque rock hand \m/ to say the least! And, in case you were wondering, he is just as attractive in person.
Anyway, it was also the perfect opportunity for me to practice my blogger meeting skills for the big summit this year. If I can meet one blogger in real life, I can meet them all! So, that brings me to the official update for the Blogger Summit 2013. First, Jen and I threw darts at a map. Then, I gave Jen makeshift stitches using my old pointe shoe sewing kit, because I hit her right in the jugular with one. After that, y’all picked the most desirable points of interest. We ended up tangling our brains trying to do something called “counting” and eventually decided on a solid location after consulting a magic 8 ball.
Drum roll please…
Look out Austin, TX! You are about to be introduced to some of the shyest, most outspoken, and silly yet serious people of the internets. Try wrapping your head around that one! We know, we know. Austin wasn’t technically on the original list of locations that you all voted on. The original Texas location was actually Houston, which many of you put in a vote for, however, several of those people did so with an additional suggestion for Austin. So we went with the curve ball. We can do that sort of thing because Jen and I have ridiculously good looking eye brows.
There are only a few more details to hash out before our master plan is ready for execution. One of those final steps is figuring out the dates. Below is a list of proposed dates for the Fall. Again, after the advanced use of something called “the process of elimination,” we determined that Fall is an ideal time being that it is one of the less hectic times of year (lack of holiday obligations and benefits of decent weather). Everyone who is intent on attending can vote for a specific date listed below or suggest your own in the comments.
IMPORTANT FINAL NOTE: This Blogger Summit is absolutely not limited to those of us who already “know” each other. Any and all bloggers who would like to participate in this fun and exciting trip to meet and connect with bloggers alike are welcome to RSVP (details on how to do so will come after we narrow down the date). Everyone is also welcomed, if not encouraged, to bring a non-blogging friend, child, significant other, cat, mannequin torso, or any other form of companion or security blanket. We will just have to ear muff the kiddos while we do adult stuff like curse the WordPress spell check for not providing the correct spelling of mannequin. Head over to Jen’s post for any details I may have unintentionally left out. That girl has her ponies in the stable. That’s a saying, right?
