Oldies But Goodies
Just to make sure everybody knows: You don't have to be young to go to BlogHer! (by "young" I mean like, um, under 45 or so.)
There will be lots of people who are, um, over a certain age at BlogHer, and
they we know how to have fun, too! Remember, we taught these young things almost everything they know, and that includes having fun. It SHOULD include having fun, anyway.
Parents: be sure you teach your kids how to have fun!!!!!
You don't have to be slender or stylish, either. BlogHer is for all of us, all women, all shapes, all sizes, all ages, all backgrounds, all EVERYTHING. Don't run out and buy new clothes. Wear your old ones, and spend your money on a BlogHer shirt and some cool stuff from the vendor rows.
I can not even imagine any woman who can't find something to love at BlogHer.
As for me, I love it ALL. I'm old enough to be the mother of most of you, and I love BlogHer more than Christmas Day.
So come, and relax, and don't be self-conscious about anything! BlogHer is not full of strangers, looking at you through a microscope and jotting down your shortcomings. BlogHer is full of potential friends, and colleagues, and women who came to meet each other, which includes YOU, and LIKE them, not judge them.
BlogHer is all about women who love to blog. So step out from behind the curtain and talk to someone. Chances are she's as shy as you, and would welcome a chance to meet someone nice.
You know, like YOU.
Come and talk to me at BlogHer. I'll be the very large, very insecure, very dowdy, very old woman holding the microphone. But you know what? This year, I REFUSE to be self-conscious.
