If you know me at all, you know I
am crying over want to go to BlogHer 2012. It is time for me to network and that would be THE place and it’s happening this August and I’m NOT going…waahh! Now I could have pitched (but I’m still a new blogger so why bother?). I had the perfect pitch (but why bother?). I would be the perfect advocate for whatever brand or community would have chosen to accept my pitch (but why bother?). I’m still a nobody (so why bother?). I didn’t pitch anyone (because I’m a sissy pants like that).
I feel like Winnie the Pooh…OH BOTHER!
And here it is, mid July, and I have no plans to go. The cost of the ticket for the event is high. Then there is travel from Texas to NYC. Let’s don’t forget accommodations. Fortunately for me (or unfortunately because I really want to go…OH BOTHER), I realize that buying a house and silly things like feeding my kids and paying the bills come before a conference I long to attend (oh bother)!
So many of my good “virtual” friends will be there and I long to meet them. There’s Deb from Just Short of Crazy, and Amy from As the Bunny Hops, and so many more. And they will learn, and network, and have FUN…without ME (oh bother)!
It’s all my fault. I should have, could have, would have pitched (if I wasn’t such a sissy pants), but now it’s too late and I’ll be sitting at home while they have fun and I
cry try to pretend like I don’t care.
But if anyone with about $1000 happens to be reading this and hopes all my dreams come true (since I do believe in fairy tales and all that sparkle) wants to sponsor me, I sure wouldn’t think it was a bother if you contacted me. Did I actually just type that? Why bother?
I hope all of my friends have fun at BlogHer 2012 while I sob in the corner of my “clawset” (not a typo, a southern thing that you might not understand…why bother?). Now, as I kick myself in the keester, I realize, I should have bothered to pitch (and not been all sissy pants) because I really want to go to BlogHer….thank.you.very.much!
Oh well…shoulda, coulda, woulda…it’s too late now. WAAHH! And yes, one more time….OH BOTHER!
