Blogher Envy

Wow. It’s quiet around here. In fact, I think there’s an echo.

Boundless bloggers have left the blogosphere to attend Blogher (say that five times fast). Although, I’m sure they’ll be back for a bit after they check into their hotels. And maybe again, here and there, between conference sessions. And then again before they go out tonight. And tomorrow night. To PARTEH like rock-bloggers! (Or Mommy Bloggers sans children.) *sigh* Can you tell I’m jealous? very. very. jealous.

Oh, well. Maybe next year.

Speaking of Blogher, you’ve probably noticed the Blogher ads in the margin over there. I hope it doesn’t offend anyone. I’m a freelance writer who doesn't want to write newsletters and copyedit brochures forever. Not that I’m delusional enough to think the ads are going to make me rich; but I’m hoping that this blog (through the great and wondrous Blogher network) will promote my column which will in turn promote the blog, which will promote the column, etc. Until I achieve world domination.

So don’t mind the ads (Unless you’re interested. In that case, click away).

And now, back to our originally scheduled post. Just kidding. I got nothin’. (Unless you want to read the training manual on color cosmetics I’m currently copyediting?)

I know, I'm hearing the echo, too. But my tongue is still twisted from trying to say your tongue-twister five times fast.

Don't worry, I'm not going to Blogher either. We can keep each other company from our computers! :)

What do you mean, you've got nothing?

The fact that you've uploaded a post is something. If it wasn't for that the silence would be deafening. Thanks for sticking around this weekend with bloggers like me. :)

You, me and Jane.....sounds like a party to me! :)

Oh good, somebody who can maybe (if you're really, really bored due to the echo) explain to me how you get Blogher ads and how much they pay?

Do tell!

So here's the scoop: I don't know (how much it pays, that is). But it was really easy to get signed up. Go to and apply. They're accepting applications again, and it's really easy to get in(so easy, they accepted ME! See? EASY SCHMEASY!).

Notice the ad.. am very proud of you! I am in the dark as to what BLOGHER is all about.. but EVERYONE went! Except the exceptionally great bloggers I guess (like the four of us)

likeAstar is totally right-on... the exceptional bloggers weren't there. NEXT YEAR YOU MUST GO!! seriously. because it would be so much better WITH you.
