Into hour five or maybe six of this flight from Boston to San Jose and starting to feel excited and anxious.
I’ve a #BlogHer14 column set up in HootSuite and it’s going nuts.
People who do this blog thing for a living. People with niche interests. People who blog much more frequently than I can. Better writers. Funnier. More interesting.
I’m feeling just a teeny bit out of my league. Like I’m not entirely qualified to be part of this club.
My goal for the next few days is to not have any goals. I’m going to just let it happen, take it in, and see where it takes me. Hopefully meet a few nice people. Learn stuff. Heck, I’m going to be in the same room/breathing the same oxygen as Kerry Washington – that alone could make this worthwhile. Maybe I’ll even get to meet Kara Swisher of Recode in a strange meshing of my professional life and this side thing/hobby of mine called blogging.
Anyway, I just read a tweet that said the Ben & Jerry booth is serving peanut butter & jelly ice cream so if it all gets too much, I know where I’m heading.
If you happen to read this and also be among the throngs at BlogHer14, please say hi. I’m the redhead with the British accent.
