Buying Hair at the Airport and Other Stories: Jenny Lawson's Keynote Interview at BlogHer '14

BlogHer Original Post

Jenny Lawson, the blogger and author behind The Bloggess, kicked off BlogHer '14 with a funny, witty, snort-laugh inducing, and real Keynote interview with BlogHer Co-Founder Jory Des Jardins. If you're unfamiliar with Jenny's story, it's really one that we love here at BlogHer. Maybe you've read her book, Let's Pretend This Never Happened. Did you know she met her agent because of BlogHer? Yup. It's the stuff blogger-writer dreams are made of, really.

But beyond being a great success story, Jenny is real. She's funny. And she bought human hair at the airport on her way to the conference... and she's wearing it in the interview. No, really.

Did you snort-laugh? I did. More than once. I think perhaps that I will watch this interview when I need to laugh, when I need to be reminded that real, awesome people do real, awesome things. And when I consider purchasing hair in an airport. Seems like a good choice to me.

Don't forget to check out Jenny's blog, The Bloggess, and follow her on Twitter for more snort-laughing. You can also check out our Hot from the Conference video page for all your video needs. We'll continue to feature them on site over the next few weeks, but feel free to poke around over there for photos and session notes, too!
