BlogHim 08′ in New York City was a phenomenal success.Â Although we had no sponsors like Blogher, no swagÂ (Dockers had promised to supply us with some free giveaways, but never came through), and received no attention from the media or kindly General Motors, we all had a great time meeting up with old blogging friends.Â And isn’t that what blogging is all about?
BlogHim had no money to pay for a hotel conference room, soÂ most of the sessionsÂ took place at Neil’sÂ Coffee ShopÂ on Lexington.Â Participants really enjoyed the free coffee refills and the way the waiteress saidÂ “Be right with you, Hon.”
One of the most popular BlogHim sessions was about new waysÂ for Daddybloggers toÂ monetize their children.Â There was a good deal of heated discussion.Â Many men were angry that the Mommybloggers received all the free Wiis.Â
“We just get the viagra ads” said one Daddyblogger.Â “Why do marketers think that because we have children we can’t get it up anymore?”
Barry, a male “Alpha” blogger from Tennessee asked the one question that was on every Daddyblogger’s mind.Â “What was the point of having children if you can’t make money off of them on your blog?”
But it was Andrew “TexasDad” who came up with the answer, inspiring the crowd with his keynote speech, “Why Daddyblogging is a Still a Radical. Act”
“We are men.Â We must use our logical male minds and think out of the box!Â Why go the same route as the the women?Â Are we men or a bunch of pussies?Â If we are unable to monetize our childrenÂ with our daddyblogs, let’s follow another path.Â Let’s forceÂ our childrenÂ to run a marathon in Central Park when it is a 100 degrees outside and BET ON THEM like a horse race!”
It was just then that the Guy Kawasaki Challenge was born!
The daughters did us especially proud!Â Â Some of usÂ made a ton of moneyÂ from the betting pool.
The highlight of the day was when the sons raced.Â Â These young men are the underappreciated male personal bloggers of the future, so we pushed them extra hard.Â Some of the more clever Daddybloggers even told their sons that they were going to abandon them and leave them in New York if they didn’t win!
The weekend consisted of one fabulous session after another, all catered to the male blogger.Â On this weekend, we were ALL Alpha Male Bloggers:
Thanks all!Â See you Next Year at BlogHim 09!Â Remember — Keep your chins up and your c*cks hard.Â Â We are MEN!
