It is so easy to feel good at BlogHer. You see people who you admire and who admire you back. You get to hang out with internet rock stars. People want to take pictures with you. You get interviewed and put on television.
A conference like that can be such a high.
But then you come home and you are just a regular person again.
The other day I was on the phone with one of my internet bosses and talking about promoting one of our posts. She said she was going to Twitter it again and I said “Yeah, just re-tweet it and more people will see it and blah blah blah blah“.
Because I talk like that.
Anyway, when I got off the phone my husband was just staring at me.
He was staring at me with his arms crossed.
Me: Yeah, you know. When you put something up on Twitter again.
Him: You are such a fucking dork.
And you know what? He is kind of right. Sure I felt cool around 1000 other women bloggers but in the grand scheme of things I am still sort of an internet dork. It is just like when I got into the Madrigal Group in college. It was awesome but I was still a choir geek.
Oh well, I may not be getting any calls from any trend setting magazines asking me what I’m wearing or what new music I like but I am having a damn good time doing this.
And I am fine with that.
