That’s a Wrap
As usual, not enough words to describe BlogHer 14. I didn’t go for the past 2 years and I didn’t miss it, other a few pangs of jealousy. I was glad I went this year, but I’m not sure if I will go again. Maybe there will never be another one. It feels sort of complete after 10 years. Who knows?
I roomed with A CERTAIN UNNAMED BLOGGER, whom I had only met once before for more than a moment. We had chatted for a few hours by the pool at Mom 2.0 last year, and she seemed nice enough. These things have always worked out well in the past, so in the interest of saving a couple hundred bucks, I chose a roommate over my hermithood. As has always happened before, we had a great time and ended up talking late into the night every night.
Just from being around blogging, I already knew THE CERTAIN UNNAMED BLOGGER was subject to a lot of internet aggression, but I was surprised to learn how much. She shared some of the details with me, and they’re vile and ugly. I won’t recap here, because I don’t like to give a thrill to the haters.
Talking to her, we found we both share the same philosophy – we ask ourselves at the end of the day “Was I kind? Was I helpful? Did I try my best?” If we can answer those three positively, we can sleep in peace. I don’t know what the haters do.
