That’s a Wrap

July 27, 2014

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.

Good night.

    You are very kind with an open heart and attitude. No judgments. It would be lovely to sit by a pool and chat with you.

      Oh, good for you. Bunnies are the best.

    Unicorns or rainbows? I can never decide.

    • July 29, 2014 06:55

      I’d have to say rainbows, because I have never actually seen a unicorn, though I would love to, wouldn’t you?

    I like kittens and ducklings. What is your favorite baby animal?

      Gosh, Amy, I can’t say I have a favorite, but beagle puppies are irresistible to me.

    What is your favorite color?

      Thanks for asking! I really like all colors, though I don’t wear yellow, orange or green because they make me look sickly. I guess indigo would be just about my favorite, though.

    I always like your choices Sue. Feeling lucky to know you and lucky to have your questions as reminders to myself, too.

    Do you call little horses foals or ponies? I have feelings about this.

      That’s a tough one. I have been known to slip up and call them ponies, though I know better. I will try to keep this straight in the future.
