BlogHer.com Conferences Relaunch: A Holiday Poem
The relaunch of our BlogHer.com Conferences section is big news around here. Isn't it pretty!!!??? As a thank you to the awesome people who made it so, I wrote a little poem I hope you will enjoy ...
'Twas just before Christmas
when all through the halls,
all of BlogHer was stirring,
not out at the malls.
The mockups were shown
on the projector to share,
in hopes that Elisa and Lori would care.
Then Yuki was huddled, heads down in her cube.
Dreaming of launch day, her work did ensue
While I in my office and Rob down the hall,
had just settled down for development haul
When out in the office, there arose such a clatter
I sprang from my desk to see what was the matter.
Away through the doorway I flew like a flash
I ran down the hallway, right by Maria's stash!
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear
But a conference main homepage and others to spare
With sassy new wallpaper, photos and stuff
the new conference section was coming to snuff.
More rapid than eagles the workers they came
and I whistled, and shouted and called them by name;
"Now, Julie, on Yuki, Maria and Liz
Hey Julie, 'sup Calvin, yo Joy we got biz!
The workers they dillied, they tallied they toiled,
they pounded the keyboards, not one to be foiled!
When the 8pm deadline that Friday came 'round
'twas a new conference section that everyone found
Tis a wonder, that section, said Lisa and E
we got it all done, and then Lynn she did cree:
many thanks to the people who made it right quick
in Conferences, Product, Design, oh yeah, Tech
When we all pull together, it's something it's true
happy holidays to all, I just love our crew.
