I definitely agree on what it's like to meet a fellow blogger. I wish there was a Boot Camp closer to me in the future because that looks like a lot of fun!

I'm glad to hear you're getting back on track after those busy days.

LOL at that last picture.

I would hate to go up and introduce myself as well. Lots of people think I'm bitchy, but I'm really just more on the shy side.

Blogger Kearsie said...

Oh man it would be super fun to go to a bloggycamp.

However, I would be like "Hi! I'm Kearsie from Sounds Like Tomatoes" and they would be like "who?"

Oh man, I can't handle that kind of rejection.

The bling rings were the envy of all the other bloggers, weren't they?lol

And why does your feather mask look better than mine?

Next time, I am going to stand on the chair and announce you for you.

The power of the blinky rings is stong with us! Kinda like the force in Star Wars!

What a fun Tuesday post-it edition! I am still so jealous of y'all that got to go. Sigh. Maybe Philly. Anyway, I can relate to the falling behind. I'm usually on top of my blog reading, but with traveling since Thursday, I'm so behind! I almost missed post it note Tuesday! (Almost. Almost.) Happy Tuesday!

It's your blog, after all! So, do what you feel is right to do! Have fun with it!

Loved seeing your pics! Although one of you standing on your chair yelling for everyone to come and say HI to you would have been great!☺

I would've sucked at finding people too. Why can't people just have their blog names on a banner above their head, wouldn't that make things easier for everybody?

Sorry your week was difficult (to put it mildly) last week:( Hopefully all the yuck is behind you for the year! Yea!!

Yes, no-repliers are a downer!! What can they not get about that?!

Glad you got to go to the bootcamp...you'll have to share what tips you learned:)

Blogger Mommy's Sippy Cup said...

Aww hell...haha. I'm sure there are a million and one things that I do wrong on my blog. I would probably be sitting there thinking, oh crap, the entire time. I'm really hoping to try and go to the one in Austin. Do you know how I can find out when it is? Hope your hubby is feeling better :(

I'm doing a CafePress giveaway if you want to check it out. Great T-Shirts!

It's totally true that you have to do what works for you and your blog. Trying to conform to a formula is not fun and takes away individuality. Be yourself...you're pretty darn terrific!

If I would have known about the blinky bling I would have definitely gone...I feel totally cheated.

You fell down stairs or did someone push you? I'm glad you're ok.

What things did they suggest you do wrong? I'm curious?

Your blog pulled me in but I tend to look for the ones I think I might like in the real world too...

Okay now I'm totally mortified. I swear, swear SWEAR I just posted freakin' POST IT NOTES to "double act" as my "Post It Note Tuesday" as WELL as Sarah's "post your experience from BBC blog" (meanwhile, a TOTAL NO, NO from Boot Camp... the double dipping!!).

And, after submitting, I figured I'd "do the right thing" and hop around at other sites from Mr. Linky or whoever the hell he is....

ONLY to learn that you did the SAME THING.. and now I'm having a COW that you may think that I am a "Copy Kat" (literally). Seriously, I need to be more "whatev" (Tiffany's words) about stuff like this... but I'm hyper-sensitive about this sorta stuff (!).

I also don't want you to think that I am "that person". I laughed aloud when I realized you had the same idea... 1/2 out of fear that you'd think I was a psycho (tee hee)... 1/2 out of pure realization that WE... ARE... BOTH... GENIUS.... AND... CUTTING... OUR... WORK... IN... 1/2!!

Cheers, Kat

Love those damn sticky notes. I must start doing that...
I had a ball on Saturday and wished I would have slept over instead of coming down for the day...seems everyone had a bit more fun during the nightlife!!! Which is right up my alley!!!
Will you come to Philly in September? This is where I live, so I'll definitely be there and although it is so close to home, I'll probably sleep over there...I hate to miss out on anything! (yes, I easily revert back to high school...)

Bummed that I couldn't make it, but with the move there was no way! I'm learning a thing or two from feedback I've seen from the ladies who did attend though and doing some new things around my blog. (Like, uh, a nifty new domain all to myself.) Put your button (& fifty million others) up, too. To try to spread some bloggy love.
