Let's talk about Blogher. It appears that I am going to this year's conference. Last year I wasn't there, and I wept bitter tears all over my keyboard. Never again. Or at least not this year. This year I cry in person. All over you.

So this year there's going to be going to be a Community Keynote, a project spearheaded by one "Ms. Eden Kennedy," whomever she is. I hear she's tall. The keynote will be comprised of readings by you, the blogging people of the blogging world. Bloggers are invited to submit their favorite posts, and 20 of them will be chosen. I'll be helping with the selection, in the humor category. Go to this post to find out more. You also have to send the post to other people, not just me. So don't just start sending me stuff. I thank you.

I am going to miss BlogHer and I will be the one in tears this year!

The primary link to Eden on BlogHer doesn't work

I will be there. Maybe I will submit to this! Oh, glorious vanity!

I'll also be interviewing fellow mother who blog about their thots and misgivings (if any) about their children's privacy. It's for the Web site of a very hip glossy mag. Let me know if you'd like to be included.

Dearest Alice,

I will NOT be there as I am a Him. Or perhaps I'll be there in drag? Only time will tell.

The conference is in San Francisco, right?! I have always wanted to go there. Maybe I can win a contest and get a free ticket! Maybe that will happen the day I stop constantly craving chocolate!

Oooh, a Word Girl ad. Very catchy. I like his (the monkey's) dance, though I've only seen it on Youtube, not on the sets'o'TV.

And now I return you to your less distractible (able?) readers.

I'll be there and I hope very much to meet you. I'll keep a kleenex in my pocket.

movie and tv celebrities always turn out to be short with large heads. blog celebrities? a race of giants. with crystal skulls.

all the better to transmit their genius. what a brilliant idea of Eden's. I'm all over it.

Yup, she's tall. And ubercool. But in a nice way.

Ooooh! Letter to my body! Gotta get on that one right away.

Oh, how I would LOOOOOVVVEEE to come to BlogHer... But I live in the South of France and the cost of flying to San Francisco (a place I've wanted to visit ever since I read the "Tales from the City" series), staying there and entry to BlogHer would ruin me, truly ruin me... I am devastated!Would the organisers ever feel like considering relocating to Europe: France, say, down in the south, Montpellier, for example...?

Nice info, will tell my sis as she is a die hard blogger.
June 5, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterSachin
It would be nice if us underpriviledged bloggers who cannot be at the conference could submit our posts and have a really nice "Humor" keynote read them for us. (Hint.) (Hint?)

I am so happy you are going to BlogHer this year, I must now go weep.

That is just frantastic.

Yes, Mrs K is tall, and unbelievably modest. I saw her last weekend and I was the one that had to mention BlogHer. As if my witty anecdotes about the Lakers were sufficient conversation....

I will be at BlogHer too. I am volunteering as the Bookstore Wrangler, which conjures up an image of me lassoing a stack of books, which would, of course, be very cool on a t-shirt.

I'll be ordering books from Barnes & Noble to stock in the Bookstore, and scheduling the book signings. It will be lovely to see you again (we met briefly at BlogHer '06).

I have been thinking about submitting something but don't you have to go and read it? I am in Australia so a little difficult. My kids say I can yell really loud but somehow I think not THAT loud...

Hi Alice, this has to do with Wonderland, not this blog, but I don't know what to do. It won't let me post my comment and it keeps giving me a Movable Type Error: Not a subroutine reference at lib/MT/ line 154.

Do you have any idea what the heck that means?

cthulhugrrl at gmail if you can help at all, thanks! I just typed out this big long thing to post and don't want to not be able to :)

I just registered! I mean, I registered last week, so maybe "just" isn't quite accurate, but it seems like yesterday. I hope I get to meet you, if I can get through the throngs of adoring fans. (I almost wrote "thongs." Heh.)

Also. Can we call a moratorium on the use of the phrase "Mommy Blogging"? Puh-leeze?
June 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterCynthia Gentry
oh that sounds cool. i wish i was going!
June 10, 2008 | Unregistered Commentersarah
You had me at "whomever." Getting very excited!

Now I am even sadder I am not going.

BUT, I *am* taking my son to his first outdoor festival-ly concert with John Mayer and Dave Matthews Band in attendance.
