I know that people who didn’t go to Blogopolis probably don’t want to read any more posts about it (feel free to click away now, really, I won’t be offended), and I know that plenty of other people have written way more fabulous posts about the event that I ever could. But I also know that since last weekend’s conference I have been pondering blogging and all it’s ups and downs and in betweens…. and I know you are just dying for me to share it with you… so I am!
I know that blogging is about people. All different kinds of people blog and about all different kinds of things (who knew?) and I find that so fascinating. I wish I had been able to meet more people on the weekend.
I know that bloggers are generous. My small boy wore his Lizosaurus T-shirt with pride the whole day, and my big kids were very impressed with the Planning Queen’s edible tea-cup business cards. But in a more general sense, bloggers are generous with their time and their ideas and with their support.
I know that it’s nice to be in a room full of people who know what a blog is and who don’t think you are some kind of crazed net nerd for having one…. even if really you are!
I know that I am liking that ProBlogger guy more and more. Darren spoke so well and was just such an awesome, down to earth, interesting person….and he showed photos of his kids (a man who openly adores his kids? be still my heart!). It made me want to read everything he’s ever written and go to every event he ever attends!
I know that it’s hard to feel like you are missing out on events, especially when you’re twitter feed is full of certain hash tags. But I also know that kids don’t get sick on purpose and there will be time to join in with the partying when your babies have grown and remembering to enjoy what you have right now is important.
I know that blogging is different things to different people and that is ok. Really it is. It is ok if you blog about one thing or another. It’s ok if you use blogger or wordpress or typepad or something else. It’s ok if you plan to make millions or never want to make a cent. It’s ok if you blog once a day or once a month. None of it matters, as long as it makes you happy.
