We can all go to BlogHer... Yup, it's true.

Mandy from harper's happenings posted something very poignant today. Due to the fact that I want to reiterate her point (and couldn't think of anything to blog about today) I'm going to comment on it right here for you all to see.

I too was teased relentlessly through the early years of high school about my weight. However, unlike Mandy, I WAS heavy... still am. I could say it scarred me or ruined my self esteem and all that fun stuff that happens to you when your terrorized by your peers. But it eventually made me a force to be reckoned with that can take on anyone or anything.

I caught myself questioning the validity of my blog when everyone was talking about BlogHer. Not to mention that I have many other people in my life that don't get it. They wonder why I would want to spend all that money on something for my blog that not only makes no $$$ but has very few followers. So I've started telling them that it's something I enjoy... and don't I deserve to take a couple of fun filled days for myself? Afterall, I DO spend my days washing everyones clothes, cleaning OUR house, raising OUR child, trying to run a business from home to pay OUR bills. I don't go out, I don't get to party, I don't really have anything I do regularly for myself besides TWITTER, ETSY, AND MY BLOG. I LOVE MY BLOG! However "lame ass" people think it is. So, I'm going to do my best to get to BlogHer next year. Come hell or high water.

Oh ya, and what my peers didn't realize in junior high that is quite obvious now, is that I'm foxy as hell. BAH!!


  1. hell yes girl.

    i was saying this in the comments on my blog, but seriously, besides the sessions, blogging wasn't really the point of blogher. rarely were they discussed. however, you are surrounded by people who GET blogging, but the majority of the time is spent making real connections and putting faces to the names of the people you read and enjoy.

    you BETTER be there mama.

    also? MEOW. hot. very hot.

  2. Thanks! BAHAHAHA!! I will definitely try to be there... It would be nice to surround myself with others just like me. However terrifying that may sound!

  3. I hear you, but WE get it and it's really all you need if you enjoy it, a ton of people, good friends included, never look at what I do...but that's ok as WE enjoy doing it...and that pic is a stunner! Ax.

  4. If you go to Blogher and I don't figure out a scheme to make it there - I'll die a thousand deaths. We are destined for one another. It HAS to happen.

  5. MomNom, your child will never know the difference... she has no idea what day is her actual birthday... and I know it's easier said than done but just do it anyway!

  6. OMG, I still can't believe this, are we sisters????? Not even my Mom understands why I talk about my personal life to strangers, and don't even get me started on how she gets when I tell her that you guys aren't strangers anymore!!!

    OK we HAVE to go to BlogHer together next year! Go roomies!!!

  7. is this pic supposed to show someone who is "heavy"? what? seriously? then what the hell is wrong with our world? you are beautiful.

  8. Thanks lady! But yes, heavy... 5'9", and size 18. But I'm good... cause my husband's a chubby chaser.
