I took the day off of work today to prepare for the next couple days at the BlogHer Convention. This mostly involves doing laundry, cleaning out my purse and polishing my nails. I’m pretty sure I’ll be the most relaxed person there because I don’t have much by way of expectations. I just want to meet smart people and have fun. I don’t even have a pitch prepared because I’m not a good enough writer (yet) for a book deal.
I’ve been fascinated by the attendees’ Facebook posts and have been following them closely. It seems that there will be about 3,000 anxious but incredibly talented and creative women attending this conference. Many of their posts are about how afraid they are they won’t make friends. I’m pretty sure that any woman sitting by herself will quickly be approached by someone and fast friends will be made. I’m considering testing this theory by actively trying NOT to make friends. I could skip showering, look surly and hiss at anyone who approaches me. I bet I would still walk out of there with a dozen new buddies. But, we’ll never know because there’s no freaking way I’m gonna do that!
One thing that I need to do is turn my blurry, shitty business cards into paper awesomeness. I’m about a third of the way through that:
And this is how I made them awesome…
C’mon, you know you want one!!!
