Just trying to earn some gas money

Hey, I'll be at the BlogHer conference in a couple of weeks, will you be there, too? It's going to be a busy one. Friday noon I'll be up on the dais during a lunch sponsored by Bill My Parents, I'll be chatting in a sort of comical but useful way with Alice, Kristen, and Liz about children and all the clever ways we can think of to keep them from spending your money. I'll give you a hint: surveillance. I'll give you another hint: monkeys. "Oh, sure," you say, "I've already got surveillance monkeys, tell me something I don't know."



Friday night I'll be MCing the Community Keynote, where twelve lovely people will read the good stuff or show us the good stuff they've been posting online lately. Saturday I'm part of a panel that will discuss what it's like to manage an online community, which I used to do with NaBloPoMo before I sold it to . . . BlogHer. Full circle!

So, if you're going to be in San Diego and you see me strolling around, please say hello. It seems they aren't going to have a have a room set up where people can sell stuff this year, but if you want a copy of Let's Panic! or one of my t-shirts, let me know, I'll be selling them out of the trunk of my car. Because the monkeys spent all my money.

Bill My Parents will be sponsoring me to talk about just about anything other than monkeys at BlogHer. Click here if you'd like to come to the lunch! Tickets will be given out on a first come, first served basis.
