*Updated* Blog Hop '09 from the perspective of a (not so) noob blogger.

Reading all kinds of blog posts & tweets about BlogHer '09, I was jealous. I admit it. I wish I was there hangin' with the big dogs, partyin' like it's 1999, & learning from the best. Not this year, though. After finding out about it fairly late, I 1st ticked off the reasons of why I wasn't worthy to attend & then said, "Screw it. I'm totally worthy!" But then, my mental birthday block temporarily lifted and I remembered that the cruise for my 40th is coming up. BlogHer had to take a back seat this year.

So here I am playin' Bejeweled Blitz with the green-eyed monster. And I'm not alone. I don't blame the others either; Bejeweled Blitz is the bomb. The good news is we're not left out. We can party from home and it's even better, cuz we don't have to spend all the money to go to Chicago. We can even party in our pj's! What's better than that? Come join Blog Hop '09 & meet lots of other bloggers out there. I'm definitely not gonna miss this!




Update - I just now caught that I had put Blog Hop '90 in my title instead of '09. The fact that I caught that after tossin' back a few just might be scary. Hmmmmm.....

Totally love the party in the pj's part! And no airport security, rental cars, or lost luggage. Sweetness. Hope you have a hopping good time! And happy almost 40th birthday! :D

I'm sure you will have much more fun on the cruise than you would have at BlogHer. Besides we can get catty on our blogs if you feel your missing out on that :)

Wanda said...

I'm with you....stay home and party! It's cheap, you can wear any skanky old thing you want and you can still find all sorts of new friends that won't judge you for looking funky!
ENJOY THAT CRUISE, LUCKY GIRL!

Hopping by to say Hi...where are you going on a cruise? We are going on one in November...can't wait. Think blog hopping on the Internet sure beats BlogHer (OK, so probably not really...but this is fun!)
