Bad feminist, no panties (in this post).

Okay, I registered for BlogHer. It's a bloggers conference that takes place in Chicago at the end of July when I'm actually kid-free. Trust me, I'll be coming to the well and asking for donations that month specifically to get me there. (July is also my birthday month, and hopefully we'll see some economic signs of Spring by then).

So I sent the following email to the organizers:

Dear Friends:

I just registered for the BlogHer panel and I'd be happy to participate in the panel on Womanhood post-Sarah Palin.

I write for several blogs, most notably Crooks and Liars, which was just named one of the top 25 blogs in America by Time Magazine.

I was a finalist for "Best Liberal Blogger" at the 2008 Weblog awards for my own blog, Blue Gal.

I am also a noted YouTube filmmaker, and my video "A blogger responds to Sarah Palin" currently has over 19,000 views.

Feel free to contact me if you need any other information.

With all good wishes,

So I sat in front of the laptop for a minute and read that. Welp, thank the good Lord I have to wash "pee-pee accident" sheets and mop floors today, otherwise I might get a swelled head.

PS. I found out this conference is in Chicago again from an attendee at Salon last night: Jezebel of Evil Slutopia, who also might be attending BlogHer. I swear, BlogHer and Chicago will never be the same if both of us are there, babe.


  1. It's pretty dang impressive, especially when you put it all in one place. Don't sell yourself short. You do all that AND wash pee pee sheets.

    I think you'll have a blast at blogher. Let us know when you start fundraising.

  2. OMG Lisa I was so busy vacuuming I almost forgot the pee-pee sheets! Thanks! :)

  3. oh what thoughts i have!

    go, go and show 'em!

    and take oodles of pictures and do a little carousing however you like, for me, o.k???

    I'll be happy to throw some green in your trip jar. Just say when.

    I've argued with a lot of conservative women on BlogHer, so I'm definitely looking forward to another "anonymous liberal blogger" being there besides Jezebel and myself. Can't wait to meet you!

  6. I'm giddy just thinking about all of the trouble we could get in together.


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
