“1”

For ten years now, or so it seems, I have had an unfinished, untitled post in the dusty cupboard of my dashboard. Actually, it was titled,  no title, which WordPress automatically assigns to all of those posts you begin to write knowing that you have no intention of finishing but that you begin to write anyway to make yourself feel like you gave it a shot.

The only text it contained read:

1.

This could only mean “1” of “1” things.

In my desperation, I attempted to write a list post. I know what I must have been thinking, “I can surely rattle off quickly, raise a few chuckles, and get my groove back”. Yet, apparently I went into the scheme unarmed, save for the numerals that would keep the words in queue. Well, “1” numeral at least. Today, I finish this list once and for all so that the uncapitalized no title will stop making my brain vibrate with discomfort.

Things That Come In “1’s”

1. 40 oz. beers in paper bags

2. The gummy vitamins that mutated into 1 whole gummy vitamin after I left them in my car in the middle of Summer

3. Kickboxing class

4. Cream cheese packets at Starbucks

5. Becca Cord

Things That Never Come In “1’s:

1.  People who play scratch off tickets at the cash register like it’s the casino

2. Gnats

3. Pomeranians

4. Overly enthusiastic, borderline creepy smiles at Starbucks

5. 5 for $25 panty deals at Victoria’s Secret

Whew! I can’t tell you how relieved I am to have conquered this post. Finally! I can move forward. I’ve been dying to write about so many things, yet I couldn’t stop staring at no title  and knowing that there was a list I needed to purge from my brain. I hope we can all get back to normal around here now.

I’d like to get back in the loop a bit, especially with Blogger Interactive right around the corner, and in hopes that it will shake up my creative juices again now that I have a bit of time freed up. If you comment, send me a link to something you have written in the past week, month, whatever. Something important or something you wrote just for fun. Laughs are encouraged. Thanks Flysters.

Blogger Interactive Give Away Winners

The 25toFly Blogger Interactive sharing contest is now officially closed. As mentioned in the original post, the likes and shares between August 7th and 21st will be tallied to determine the winners, but I need a little help. If you participated in the contest, please let me know in the comment section how many likes, shares, reblogs, or original posts that you dedicated to Blogger Interactive. From there, I will double check the tallies and work on getting the lovely prizes to the winners.

A sincere thank you to everyone who participated in helping us to spread the word about our groundbreaking event! As the date draws nearer, we are preparing to blow everyone out of the water. From our speakers, to our venues, to the incredible swag we have to give our attendees, the first annual BI is already a huge success. We can’t wait to share the experience with everyone and develop what is next to come.

Speaking of venues, we have a slight change in the event itinerary. The original welcome mixer will be held at a new location, so be sure to head over to the BI blog and read all about it! Later this week we will let attendees know about a special gift from one of our sponsors as well. Excitement!

Things you already know about Blogger Interactive:

What you don’t already know about Blogger Interactive is that we now have a CafePress store! We realized that people buy customiz gear to remember certain events: rock concerts, marathons, elections, sports playoffs. These occasions are so special that we must walk away with a piece of memorabilia. Blogger Interactive won’t be any different.

Attendees: what better way to commemorate mingling awkwardly with other bloggers than with a BI t-shirt, or keychain? For those not attending: what better way to commemorate not having to mingle awkwardly with other bloggers than with a BI mousepad, or notebook?

You can visit the store here: http://www.cafepress.com/bloggerinteractive

Phone Calls Are Hard

I have a confession to make. I can’t phone.

It seems that the moment that I am forced to use a mobile device for it’s intended purpose instead of for texting, Candy Crush, or taking distorted selfies, I lose all mental capacity. I also stop knowing how the English language works. I develop a mean stutter and weird verbal tics. It’s a sad realization, but somehow I know I can’t be alone.

Just kidding about the Candy Crush. The only candy I am crushing is a fat Snickers bar with my grill. Enjoy!

Later this week I am announcing a sweet give away, and you wont even have to make a single phone call.
