Blogging and the Internet

BEST. BLOGHER RECAP. EVER.
I love that you wore green lederhosen and a wig for the entire conference. I like your confidence.
You totally suck, you know that don’t you?
July 27, 2009 at 12:25 pm
But you forgot “There’s no place like home”
Because really? There’s not.
Hilarous. Thanks for making me smile – even though I was not there – today, as it’s very depressing and I’m beyond sad about baby Stellan.
Hope to see you next year at BlogHer ’10 in NYC.
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Neil, you’re a doll and I thoroughly enjoyed hanging out with you at the Social Luxe lounge and seeing you around the conference.
July 27, 2009 at 12:26 pm
Finally! A BlogHer post that covers all the angles!
July 27, 2009 at 12:27 pm
You nailed it.
July 27, 2009 at 12:28 pm
Neil. You nailed this one.
Brilliant! I wasn’t there this year, but that works just as well for last year’s BlogHer!
July 27, 2009 at 12:30 pm
BEYOND brilliant. Genius.
ALMOST PERFECT! Except you left out the sex. *that’s what she said*
July 27, 2009 at 12:31 pm
Hahaha. That’s just great.
July 27, 2009 at 12:32 pm
I represented the Lollipop Guild.
July 27, 2009 at 12:33 pm
July 27, 2009 at 12:34 pm
Absolutely brilliant! It was terrific to meet you at the Shutter Sisters PJ party and put a real face to the twitter profile
I could not have said this any better. Like everyone else said this is just Brilliant!
July 27, 2009 at 12:35 pm
I love it! I’m so bummed I kept missing you!
So, wait. Are you saying that I was Dorothy or the Witch? I need to know this.
July 27, 2009 at 12:36 pm
Now I will just sound like the follower that I am….This is perfection!
July 27, 2009 at 12:37 pm
Neil. Only you. You are one unique brilliant dude. I don’t think Black Hockey Jesus could have thought of this post…..
July 27, 2009 at 12:38 pm
Dammit Neil you stole my idea. Crap what am I supposed to do now?
Love it. Great post.
Fantastic Loved meeting you, Neil!
July 27, 2009 at 12:39 pm
July 27, 2009 at 12:41 pm
Yes. YESYESYESYESYES. YES.
July 27, 2009 at 12:42 pm
I really loved your session on blogging as storytelling, too. After a weekend of “how do I get more hits on my blog?!” and “what is product branding?!” and having swag chucked at my head, it was nice to sit in a session where people discussed, oh, I don’t know, WRITING blogs. Thanks for that!
July 27, 2009 at 12:43 pm
We didn’t get to Bump.
Great to meet you face to face, Neil.
July 27, 2009 at 12:45 pm
Well. It certainly looks like I missed a rip roaring good time. Are you the one in the ruby slippers, or the one in the pointy hat?
July 27, 2009 at 12:48 pm
You clever little blogger, you. And I feel fortunate that I get to say that you are even better in real life.
Excellent, Excellent recap!!! I’m so deliriously tired that I’m reliving the emotions again right now.
July 27, 2009 at 12:49 pm
Perfect. Great to meet you.
July 27, 2009 at 12:51 pm
so who’s the main character? where’s the Anacin? i’m confused!
July 27, 2009 at 1:02 pm
Great to meet you and hang in the Shutter Sister suite.
My recap was less Wizard of Oz and more HEATHERS.
July 27, 2009 at 1:10 pm
That pretty much sums up my whole weekend!
Nice to briefly meet you in the elevator!
July 27, 2009 at 1:11 pm
Well played, sir. Well played, indeed. See you soon, mister.
July 27, 2009 at 1:17 pm
July 27, 2009 at 1:24 pm
Neil: Those ruby slippers make you look HOT. You own them….
July 27, 2009 at 1:30 pm
Yep, you got it. A pic is worth a trillion words….
July 27, 2009 at 1:35 pm
Right, but would the BlogHer weekend synch up with Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon?”
July 27, 2009 at 1:52 pm
Dude, tell me you’re actually going to write about BlogHer, please, because your recap is one of the few I was actually looking forward to reading.
July 27, 2009 at 1:54 pm
The only thing you missed was a shot of Dorothy and the Scarecrow picking apples off the trees with the caption: “SWAG”
July 27, 2009 at 2:06 pm
Very cool. Very cool. Was nice to meet you, Neil!
July 27, 2009 at 2:21 pm
Congratulations on all your new fans, Neil. You have definitely boosted your popularity meter!
July 27, 2009 at 2:32 pm
July 27, 2009 at 2:37 pm
next year … i MUST come
July 27, 2009 at 2:49 pm
Oh goodness, all my favorite things.
Next year, I must go. Blogher10 or bust!
Great recap. Although I thought the cliques looked better than those guys.
July 27, 2009 at 2:50 pm
I’m glad you finally made it to BlogHer (although sorry it was one of the ones *I* couldn’t get to). Maybe I’ll finally meet you next year in NYC.
July 27, 2009 at 2:53 pm
July 27, 2009 at 2:54 pm
p.s. Loved your storytelling panel at BlogHer too. I got a lot out of it, so thanks!
July 27, 2009 at 3:08 pm
Bwhahaha…best recap yet.
July 27, 2009 at 3:11 pm
Dammit. Which suite was that in?
July 27, 2009 at 3:13 pm
Reading your tweets (and now seeing this excellent recap) about your impressions of BlogHer was almost better than experiencing BlogHer myself. It was quite a weekend, no? Sorry I didn’t meet your or go to your panel, but I agree with Sarah – there was a dearth of actual writing sessions, and unfortunately virtually the only two were happening at once.
I also echo Ellen B.
July 27, 2009 at 3:16 pm
I thought it was in Chicago, not Oz. I still kind of think of Chicago as the land of Oz anyway.
Brilliant. As usual.
July 27, 2009 at 3:56 pm
Perfect. It was so great to meet you, good sir.
July 27, 2009 at 4:26 pm
July 27, 2009 at 4:27 pm
OMG I LOVED THIS!
July 27, 2009 at 4:31 pm
BEST. RECAP. EVER.
July 27, 2009 at 4:44 pm
All this bs about “story telling” and you do this. I hate you.
(But really like this post)
You could be in my clique anytime. Can I be the guy in blue? I like his hair better.
July 27, 2009 at 6:14 pm
So bummed I didn’t meet you and this is the BEST BlogHer recap I’ve read so far. Love it!
July 27, 2009 at 6:33 pm
Like any good movie, one that you want to watch again–you need trouble making.
Blogher wouldn’t be blogher if not for the drama. Oh the drama. It is a womans meet up after all.
July 27, 2009 at 6:36 pm
Oooh, I like your shoes!
July 27, 2009 at 7:08 pm
Yeah, that clique of self-righteous, self-aggrandizing, blogging ho’ Oompah Loompahs really pissed me off. Otherwise, the conference was great.
Also? It was great “Bump”ing iPhones with you. And attending your panel on Storytelling. You, my friend, rock.
July 27, 2009 at 7:13 pm
I’m so happy you followed the yellow brick road and came to Chicago!
July 27, 2009 at 9:43 pm
My favorite movie of all time. I’m glad BlogHer was THAT good.
July 27, 2009 at 9:56 pm
This is so, so, perfect! Of course, I found myself over analyzing even this ….
July 27, 2009 at 11:27 pm
so, tell me how you really feel? and BTW: did you see any boobs?
July 27, 2009 at 11:50 pm
What, no “Burgers with Avitable” image from that one scene from Oz? Fucker.
Love it, this is my kind of post!! That said, I’m dying to hear more about your workshop and your general impressions of that event that I can’t imagine ever attending. What was it like being in the testosterone minority?
July 28, 2009 at 12:27 am
July 28, 2009 at 1:29 am
I love this so much that I don’t even care that you don’t remember meeting me the first time. Heh.
July 28, 2009 at 8:38 am
Do you still have my shoes?
July 28, 2009 at 11:19 am
At least it wasn’t Apocalypse Now. Thanks. This is great. Now, for a full recap, please!
July 28, 2009 at 3:08 pm
I bet poppies leave you with less of a hangover.
Great meeting you!
July 28, 2009 at 4:44 pm
love the shoes, but that is the creepiest movie i’ve ever seen, which makes me worry about what blogher was really like, hopefully, no flying monkies, eek!
July 28, 2009 at 5:39 pm
Shit. When you’re clever like this I sorta hate it. You jerk.
July 28, 2009 at 6:39 pm
wait… which one am I?
July 28, 2009 at 6:57 pm
July 28, 2009 at 9:47 pm
July 29, 2009 at 4:35 am
July 29, 2009 at 12:15 pm
Yup – that pretty much sums it up!
Soooo bummed I didn’t get to hang with you. I saw you at Mama Pop but then you were gone. Or was I gone? Can’t remember now.
July 29, 2009 at 4:04 pm
I’ve figured out all the others, but who was Toto?
July 29, 2009 at 4:55 pm
I don’t think you could have summed it up any better! I wasn’t there but I can only imagine.
July 30, 2009 at 11:56 pm
Lovely, precise, and true, Neil. I’m a little sad to be back in black and white. Wonderful meeting you, darling.
July 31, 2009 at 4:33 pm
I know I’m late to the party, dude, but I don’t read recaps until after MINE is written. Enjoyed you immensely as a roommate, but next year I’m injecting you with a GPS microchip. The needle isn’t all THAT big, don’t worry.
August 1, 2009 at 8:54 pm
Great post!! (plus I love Wizard of Oz)
It was good to meet you. I sat at your table at one of the closing sessions. I had to leave a little early to meet someone…but was glad to meet you.
August 2, 2009 at 9:29 am
How did I miss this earlier this week? Gah.
Handily the most creative re-cap of the weekend. Well done, sir!
August 3, 2009 at 8:52 pm
I’m coming next year
Let’s hope that photo re-cap isn’t taken from something like, oh, A Clockwork Orange or something 😉
August 6, 2009 at 12:16 pm
My fave recap, on so many levels!
So glad to have met you, Neil!
July 20, 2010 at 2:48 pm
Can I be the scarecrow?
July 20, 2010 at 9:15 pm
I have never wanted to bein a clique until today.
