When You Take Swag Too Seriously

Jul 21, 2008

#Life#This one time? At BlogHer?

Draft #5: I’ve tried four times previous to write my first Post-BlogHer-Post. I’ve spent an hour typing A H R E F = BLAHBLAHBLAH and deleting the entire post. I’ve struggled to compile my photos in to some sort of order that I can share. I’ve been sitting here organizing work but getting sucked back in to drafts for this post.

I think I’m speechless.

I’ll find the words. I’ll find the photos. I’ll find the URLs and I’ll try not to leave anyone out. In the mean time, I will share this short video we made with you. It’s ironic that I left a blogging conference completely unable to blog, isn’t it? That in all the bustle and hustle and writing tips and site information I leave with a short clip my closest local friends and I made? Because in the end, it’s not about blogging, it’s about the real world.

Welcome to ours.

I’m hitting publish before I over analyze this post. See? look! A Spesling error! POSTED.

Photos are up!!


  1. I haven’t been able to write yet, either.

    I totally bought wine in that liqueur store.

    Damn, did I even see you after the Alltop party?  What kind of BS is that?

  2. Where is the picture of the damn dress?!? You can’t leave us hanging like this.

    Glad you ladies had a great time. Hoping I get to make it to the 2009 party as there is no way I’ll be pregnant at that point (especially if you save a few of your business card condoms for me).

  3. I wrote a half assed BlogHer post. Because I am scared. And a wee bit buzzed at the airport.

  4. So not only did I not get to really talk in private, but the only picture you have of me is with my tongue hanging out. 

    Eh, guess it’s appropriate.

  5. Sounds like you all had a blast.  One of these years…Of course I’ve been saying that for three years now.

  8. OMG. How perfect is this post after BlogHer? The suspense is killing us; what does the dress look like and what did L. do with it?

    Hey, I can try this with all of my things I need to toss in downtown Houston?

    Harry Wong is in town tomorrow, shall I dare with those women attending? Just wondering.

  9. Gah!  Why, oh why did my family chose this past week to go on vacation?  Why?  Love your photos . . . totally want to be in them next year, kay?  Heart you big time lady.

  11. Swag.  I am quite intrigued by swag.  Of course I am interested in meeting all the amazing bloggers out there as well, but something about the word swag calls to me. I must look into this Blogher party next year!

  12. You have my full permission to smack me silly for not going to party with you. 
    And that is my dress, btw!

  13. I want swag which is why I am going next year!

  14. Where is the dress?? We all must see. Looks like you had a great time!!

  15. Missing you right now. Wishing there could be an alternate “blogher continuum” plain   so I could live that life and my own real life endlessly.

    Actually, fuck my real life. Let’s haz some cheezeburgerz! =-)

  16. Count me in on Erica’s blogher continuum. I’ll provide tacos.

  17. Is it okay if I love Laura just a little bit?  Or maybe like STALK her or something?  And Michelle.  You guys are so f’ing fun!  GAH!
