Blogger Summit Update #2

Nine days. It had been nine whole days since I had so much as looked at the “add new” post button before I wrote my blogiversary post yesterday. Nine days in internet time is equal to about nine months in real-time. I could have had a blog baby for all you know. Don’t get any ideas, I wasn’t off making blabies. What I was doing was visiting with an incredible blogger from the Motor City. You probably know him as Adam from My Right to Bitch, The Artist Formerly Known as My Right to Bitch, or more recently Live From Motor City or maybe just that hilarious drummer dude that I was lucky enough to virtually drink fake sake with that one time.

Adam and Jack

All shoe laces are belong to Jack.

That’s right, he drove himself insane all the way down here to Louisiana to hang out, help me fix my poorly assembled bar stools (ten cool points for anyone who remembers this old ass post), drink beers with me and introduce Jack to the joys of chewing gum. The experience was well deserving of an Adamesque rock hand  \m/  to say the least! And, in case you were wondering, he is just as attractive in person. 

Anyway, it was also the perfect opportunity for me to practice my blogger meeting skills for the big summit this year. If I can meet one blogger in real life, I can meet them all! So, that brings me to the official update for the Blogger Summit 2013. First, Jen and I threw darts at a map. Then, I gave Jen makeshift stitches using my old pointe shoe sewing kit, because I hit her right in the jugular with one. After that, y’all picked the most desirable points of interest. We ended up tangling our brains trying to do something called “counting” and eventually decided on a solid location after consulting a magic 8 ball.

Drum roll please…

Look out Austin, TX! You are about to be introduced to some of the shyest, most outspoken, and silly yet serious people of the internets. Try wrapping your head around that one! We know, we know. Austin wasn’t technically on the original list of locations that you all voted on. The original Texas location was actually Houston, which many of you put in a vote for, however, several of those people did so with an additional suggestion for Austin. So we went with the curve ball. We can do that sort of thing because Jen and I have ridiculously good looking eye brows.

There are only a few more details to hash out before our master plan is ready for execution. One of those final steps is figuring out the dates. Below is a list of proposed dates for the Fall. Again, after the advanced use of something called “the process of elimination,” we determined that Fall is an ideal time being that it is one of the less hectic times of year (lack of holiday obligations and benefits of decent weather). Everyone who is intent on attending can vote for a specific date listed below or suggest your own in the comments.

IMPORTANT FINAL NOTE: This Blogger Summit is absolutely not limited to those of us who already “know” each other. Any and all bloggers who would like to participate in this fun and exciting trip to meet and connect with bloggers alike are welcome to RSVP (details on how to do so will come after we narrow down the date). Everyone is also welcomed, if not encouraged, to bring a  non-blogging friend, child, significant other, cat, mannequin torso, or any other form of companion or security blanket. We will just have to ear muff the kiddos while we do adult stuff like curse the WordPress spell check for not providing the correct spelling of mannequin. Head over to Jen’s post for any details I may have unintentionally left out. That girl has her ponies in the stable. That’s a saying, right?

Dates:

  • August 23rd-25th
  • August 30th-September 1st
  • September 6th-8th
  • September 13th-15th
  • October 18th-20th
  • October 25th-27th

Vote away!

  1. I’m happy. You know my ass will be there. Also, you know how happy the beginning of this made up. Please let’s catch up soon.

  2. DUUUUUUUUDE. The more I read everyone’s comments, the more I get excited. A lot of men going. SAUSAGE FEST.

  3. Oh, I so wish I could come…

  4. I would be really interested, but trying to convince wife and two kids to go to Austin, or better yet allowing me to go to Austin by myself will take some collosal convincing. But there is a slim to none chance of it happening. So count me in…kind of not.. maybe.

  5. Unfortunately I won’t be making it all the way from Australia but I have a spare mannequins torso if anyone is afraid to show up without a date. Let me know and I’ll post it to you.

  6. I WANNA!!! I guess I have to consult Joe, and the animals about it first. Oh, and my job. Dumb. I vote for any dates. No more schooling = I do what I want! I’ll just watch out for updates. Joe and I were thinking about taking a road trip this summer, specifically to New Orleans for a few days. Um hello, MEET UP?!

  7. Wow – I’m just ONE STATE OVER!! I’ll let everyone chime in and see if I can do this :)

  8. I “liked” this post even though I think the decision was made purely to exclude me. NO NO, don’t deny it!!

    You’ll see, I’ll have my own get together here, and we’ll have falafel and dance and play games and drink Lebanese Margaritas. What’s that? You don’t know what a Lebanese Margarita is? Well, that’s just too bad, isn’t it.

  9. Hi, Becca! I’m having a hard time with time these days. I think I like the October dates the best. That would be my vote! That’s cool you and Adam hung out.

  10. I just reblogged this on You’ve Been Hooked, Becca.
    But don’t let the fame go to your (currently ginger) head.

  11. Any of those dates could work for me. I’ve got vacation time accrued and just looking for a way to spend it. I may also have a book release in September, so maybe I could call it a “book tour!” With lots of drink.. I mean promoting!

  12. “And, in case you were wondering, he is just as attractive in person.”

    Bow chika bow wow!

  13. Loved the yellow rubber gloves your clone was sporting in the YouTube vlog, Becca. You may want to go easy on the sauce, though. Save it for the shower.
    As for your blogging summit, it sounds like an event destined to shake the pillars of Heaven. I hope everything goes as planned and you get a year’s worth of blogs/vlogs out of the whole affair!

    • The gloves were for getting gum out of Jack’s hair. You wouldn’t believe the things he gets into. It didn’t help that Adam was discarding his flavorless chew candy all over my apartment for days. But he can get away with it because he taught me to play Wipeout on the drums.

      I just know the meet up will be heard around the world Hook. Prepare yourself!

  14. Checking out flight/hotel costs. That will determine whether this is a possibility for me or not.

  15. I just pee’d my pants. Luckily I’m alone at home, so I only embarrassed the computer chair…

    And I’m going to be that girl: whenever! So just add my vote to the majority to secure the majority’s lead ^.^

  16. Cannot be!!!
    I’m gonna be in Austin all May, not fair :(
    Would have loved to take part of this.

  17. 8/30-9/1 or 9/6-9/8
    That’s my two cents. Way to get your chickens in a coop.

  18. YAAAAYYYYYYY!!! I vote Aug 23rd-25th!

  19. I’m open to all of the dates. Really loving that this is going to be in Austin, and I’m sure we’ll do well in keeping her weird.

  20. Oh this is happening in fall?! I thought it was like, imminent. Hmm.. That changes things a bit… As somoeone with no life or future plans, I vote August 30-September 1st.

  21. i don’t know if they’ll let me enter texas without carrying a gun. or a bible. i read that somewhere on the internet. oh, but it was someone on blogspot, so i guess that doesn’t count.

  22. I wasn’t going to say anything, but then I saw the command. Talk to me. So I felt compelled to comment. Now I’m not sure what to say. Soooooo….how are you?
