Less than 2 months until BlogHer. Are you going?

After my post three months ago about how TPTB at BlogHer are dropping the ball significantly, I’ve had several people ask if I was even still going. The answer is a resounding “Of course!”

While I think that the leadership of BlogHer is doing a piss-poor job this year of maintaining any level of transparency, falsely encouraging community involvement while foisting their own agenda regardless of popular opinion, I don’t go to the conference so I can be underwhelmed by their inability to effectively organize their way out of a wet paper bag. I go to meet my friends, make new ones, and enjoy the ability to put faces and real names with virtual identities.

Last year’s conference was a blast and completely, utterly overwhelming. I cannot believe how many people there were, and how many bloggers I met. There are plenty of bloggers who I think I met, but can’t even remember – that’s how crazy it was.

This year, since I am a little OCD, anal retentive, and controlling, I thought I’d try to have a better plan to see old friends and meet new ones. So, here is a little survey for you. You can fill it out in the comments or email it to me at my first name at my last name dot com.

1. What’s your name? You can give your blog name, real name, or name you want me to call you in my sleep.

2. Have we met? Don’t be insulted if I don’t remember – I was totally overwhelmed and unless you grabbed my nuts or something, I may have forgotten.

3. Are you going to this year’s BlogHer? If not, do you live in the NYC area and do you want to meet up outside of the conference while I’m there?

4. Do you want to meet me? How much or how little, on a scale of chocolate to 42?

5. Are you a single woman? Do you like fat hairy funny guys? If yes to both, plz send photos kthxbai.

6. Have you been invited to any exclusive parties? Do you want a date? Who totally puts out?

7. Who’s the blogger you’re the most excited to see? If you say someone other than me, it’s okay. I understand that you have shitty taste.

8. Would you have attended a session if I had gotten one like the community demanded? What if I hosted one in my room? Naked?

9. What’s the most private thing you’re willing to share here? I promise I won’t tell anyone.

Thanks!

  1. Angie [A Whole Lot of Nothing]

    1. 2. You’re lucky enough to know me.
    3. Aye
    4. Already done.
    5. No. Yes.
    6. No *sob* but I’m open, willing, and able.
    7. Everyone else since I already know where you live, and I’ve already left you my scent on your bed.
    8. Yes. Yes. Up for negotiation.
    9. I’m willing to try a 3-some.

  2. Colleen - Mommy Always Wins

    1) Colleen (my blog is Mommy Always Wins, which I *hate* telling people out loud. I mean, I put *MOMMY* in my freakin’ blog name. GAH.)
    2) Yep – at BlogHer last year. I was the really tall blond chick in the whatever-the-hell room where they were giving out the free jeans or E.L.F. make-up – don’t remember which, I just remember wondering what they would do if you asked for whatever the freebie was. 🙂
    3) Yup.
    4) Sure – let’s have a drink. Or two. Or…
    5) Nope, but yes. My hubby is both. And has a sweeeet cop ‘stache.
    6) By exclusive, do you mean “the party we have in the lobby after all the other people go to whatever parties they’re having that night”? Then yes.
    7) Um, don’t know.
    8) Uh, I guess so. But only if Angie’s there. I figure it can become a tradition that she and I do scary things at BlogHer every year.
    9) Most private? Geez… I always wear pretty underwear. Does that count?

  3. Twenty Four At Heart

    1. Suzanne/Twenty Four
    2. Yes, we met. I probably grabbed your nuts but I don’t remember.
    3. Yes, I’ll be going to BlogHer again this year.
    4. Well, sheesh – I guess I’d be willing to meet you again, but this time we should probably skip the nut grabbing.
    5. I’m not single, but you never know what the future holds. And yes.
    6. No, I never get invited to shit. I always like dates.
    Who puts out? I think Neil Kramer does.
    7. I mainly want to see …?? Not sure. But I will be doing shots with my niece and others. I will love everyone equally at that point.
    8. Yes. I’d love to see you naked. Can I bring my camera and take photos and blog about it? I think the blogosphere would love it! You wouldn’t believe how many people have read my interview with the well endowed Muskrat!
    9. Most private? Hmmm … Let me think on that. I’m pretty much an open book.

  4. Kim

    1. Kim / Live From The 205
    2. Yes – twice !
    3. Yes.
    4. Yes, again. With chocolate. And wine. Now that you became a man up and started drinking it.
    5. Yes and Yes. Do you know one who’s available?
    6. No. Damnit. I was hoping you’d sneak me in, or at least help me crash a few.
    7. Well, I wasn’t going to tell you because I’d never want to hurt you, but…Neil. Then you. Wait, I mean the Muskrat, then you. Heh. Wait, I mean…
    8. Yes ! That’s not on the agenda? I want a refund. And a polaroid.
    9. If I had been drinking tonight when I read this question the answer would have been gold !! Gold Jerry !

  5. Robin

    1. Bella to the Venta.

    2. Several times, sucker.

    4. I have already met you.

    5. ::snicker::

    6. Not invited to any exclusive parties….you know I am not that popular. Was hoping you would have an in and sneak me in for sexual favors. You know, a quid pro quo arrangement…

    7. I am most excited to see you, Adam. Why front about the situation?

    8. You could still host a ROYO naked….who’s stopping you?

    9. The most private thing here? I’m pregnant….and it’s yours. 🙂

  6. NYCWD

    In typical male hormonal rebellious fashion I will refuse to answer this survey geared to the estrogen heathens set to descend on my fair city, but I will leave you with three little words:

    Ninja New York

    7. I don’t know any hot Asian bloggers, so it might as well be you.
    8. No and no.
    9. I haven’t been able to get an erection since my first hospitalization, so all my bunny lust and offers of anal sex are purely academic.

  8. B.E. Earl

    1. I’m the Dude. So that’s what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you’re not into the whole brevity thing. Or you can just call me Mike.

    2. I’ve only met you in my naughty dreams.

    3. Not going to BlogHer, but I live in the area so sure…I’m into meeting up with some cool bloggers. You know any?

    4. Absolutely. On a scale of chocolate to 42? Bacon.

    5. I can be whatever you’d like me to be. But I’d be a real ugly woman. Just warning ya.

    6. Any party that I do get invited to is exclusive, but no…no invites here.

    7. I wouldn’t mind meeting Felicia Day. Is she gonna be there?

    8. No. Sure. No.

    9. I already mentioned my real first name. What else do you want? Sheesh!

  9. Sybil Law

  13. edenland

    1. Eden from Edenland

    2. No

    3. Yes

    4. Yes, I’d love to meet you. Last December I tweeted that my husband text me through a photo of a black man sucking his own penis. Someone in my twitter stream got SO offended, blocked me after tweeting what a crude vile person I was. I felt so bad, all afternoon ….. like, what is WRONG with me? Later that night I checked your blog, to find a photo of your turkey ballsack. That turkey ballsack made me feel so much better, like I wasn’t the only freak in the world. Thank you.

    5. No, yes.

    6. No …. are there really exclusive parties?

    7. You, Heather, Aunt Becky, Tracey, Katie, Lori, Melissa. All of the American chicks I have gotten to know and love over the past three years online. (I’m coming from Australia for BlogHer. So fucking excited.)

    8. Would you have attended a session if I had gotten one like the community demanded? What if I hosted one in my room? Naked?

    9. What’s the most private thing you’re willing to share here? I promise I won’t tell anyone.

  14. Marty

    I live in new yawk. I’m not signed up to go because I’ll be performing in a play, August 5-8 evenings and Sun aft(sorry for self- promotion). Would love to meet up with bloggers I haven’t met as well as the ones, I have met that feel they can tolerate me once again in the interim.

    Email me, facebook me, fuck me. Sorry about the last one.

  15. Aunt Becky

    1. What’s your name? You can give your blog name, real name, or name you want me to call you in my sleep.

    Aunt Becky. Or, Becky Sherrick Harks. Shit, you can call me “Dildo” and I’ll answer.

    2. Have we met? Don’t be insulted if I don’t remember – I was totally overwhelmed and unless you grabbed my nuts or something, I may have forgotten.

    Negatory. I wanted to hump your leg last year, but somehow I met…no one. Then my kid got sick. It was underwhelming.

    3. Are you going to this year’s BlogHer? If not, do you live in the NYC area and do you want to meet up outside of the conference while I’m there?

    Yeppers. I’m going this year.

    4. Do you want to meet me? How much or how little, on a scale of chocolate to 42?

    6 billion million.

    5. Are you a single woman? Do you like fat hairy funny guys? If yes to both, plz send photos kthxbai.

    I love fat, hairy funny guys but I’m married.

    6. Have you been invited to any exclusive parties? Do you want a date? Who totally puts out?

    I put out but I am too crude to be invited anywhere.

    7. Who’s the blogger you’re the most excited to see? If you say someone other than me, it’s okay. I understand that you have shitty taste.

    You. DUH.

    8. Would you have attended a session if I had gotten one like the community demanded? What if I hosted one in my room? Naked?

    Um, OF COURSE I’d have attended. I plan on showing up to your room and insisting you speak about…something. And if you don’t, I’ll just wait. FOREVER.

    9. What’s the most private thing you’re willing to share here? I promise I won’t tell anyone.

    I have a blog where I talk about pretty much everything. Honestly. So, here, what do you want me to say…I have a real penchant for narcotics and I don’t particularly care for vodka.
