I can think of only a few things that I love more than hanging out with bloggers. They include:
1. Cheetos. Even the allure of meeting fellow oversharers pales in comparison to the radioactive goodness of dried cheese dust.
2. Target during the SuperBowl. While the rest of the world was watching football yesterday, I was at Target. Rows upon rows of up&up and Circo and Archer Farms and Threshold bargains were mine – all mine – and nary a soul was there to deal-block me. I felt like Kevin McCallister when he ordered the giant cheese pizza and ate it all by himself, believing that he had willed the disappearance of his family. Top that, blogging convention with free bleach tabs and toilet paper samples.
3. The melodious sound of “Yes, mother” coming from my child’s mouth. While I love meeting other bloggers who heap praise on my ability to write eloquently about poop and my memories of sex ed, there is nothing that brings me greater joy than my toddler joyfully assenting to my requests. Perhaps that is because it so rarely happens. #MyToddlerMightKillMe #WellMaybeNotMeButAtLeastMyWill
As you can see, I place meeting bloggers in the highest echelons of Things I Take Immense Pleasure From. I probably could have omitted the whole Cheetos bit because obviously I love them and so do you if you’ve ever tried them, but I really wanted to drive the point home.
Therefore, it is with great excitement that I announce that I’ll be at WordPress’s second-ever Press Publish on April 18 in Phoenix, AZ! And I’m so stoked to meet you!
What’s Press Publish? Why, it’s a great way to meet up with fellow WordPress bloggers, learn a few new things about blogging, and perhaps most importantly, eat artificially-flavored cheese snacks with me in the middle of the desert! Huzzah!
I’ll be giving a talk about my blogging journey (since I’m apparently Oprah all of a sudden), so that should be…interesting. You’ll notice that public speaking is not in the list above, so no promises that I won’t just read off a list of Pop-Tart flavors I believe should exist.*
*I totally won’t do that.**
**Geez, I hope I don’t do that.
Want to join me and a ton of other insanely talented bloggers and Automatticians in Phoenix? Get your tickets now!
Blogging not your thing? Here’s a link to buy Cheetos on Amazon. Do yourself a favor and read the customer reviews. Don’t say I never gave you anything.
