They’re Just Not That Into You

January 17th, 2006

I met up with the fabulous Paige this past weekend for Pie. Somehow during the phone conversations leading up to the meeting, Miss Domestic herself mentioned how she planned on heading to the circle jerk known as BlogHer. She thought that maybe I wanted to go.

I’ll tell you what, it does sound kind of fun to meet up for a weekend with all the ladies that I read on the internet. We could drink, go out to eat and act silly. But, going to a conference? About BLOGGING?

Perhaps I’m just not that into it, but why would I want to confer on blogging? There’s nothing I really want to learn that much. I mean, if anything, I want to talk about Trolls and mean emails and gossip over who did what and where. I do not want to discuss stats or site meters or anything technical.

Does that make me just another stupid woman? Another dumb “mommy blogger” that enjoys talking of poop? Probably. I don’t know…I just don’t want to spend all that money to do Geek Speak.

Then there’s the High School aspect of all of it. I know there will be cliques and everyone is going to clambor to meet all the “popular” bloggers, whoever “they” are. I remember, last year, after reading all the accounts of BlogHer for a month straight where everyone went on and on and on and on and on and on about how wonderful it was…well, all I kept thinking was “They are just people.”

I’ve met many fabulous women and bloggers in real life and I don’t think any of us were ready to crap our pants during the meeting. If anything, it was like “Hey, I like your blog. Let’s eat!”

(I’m not saying everyone is like this, so please don’t send me 50 hate mails about how I’m just jealous that you met so and so and yes, she’s really cool and really tall and I’m just mad because I’m only 5′5. Bleh.)

While searching around on the BlogHer site to see who the speakers will be, I came across this question. “How will your blog change the world?”

Huh?

Um, okay. Well, my blog will change the world because I want more women to accept their hemorrhoids. I want them to know that raising babies isn’t exactly easy and that all mothers and fathers should have a lifetime supply of alcohol. I also want people to feel that they’re not alone while sitting on the couch watching Oprah.

I also want more talk of poop.

I want to create a legion of ‘rhoid-accepting, Oprah watching, poop talking hussies. There. I said it.

While we’re on the subject, I’m also up for “Best Overall Blog” at The Best of Blogs Awards. I’m not even sure how that happened and I kind of feel a little silly about it. But, since its up there and I want to secure my standing as Second Place is The First Loser, I figured I’d let you know. I can’t say I’ve never won anything because I won a fanny pack in the fourth grade in some drawing.

Yeah, that’s right. I said it. Fanny Pack. I wore a fanny pack and I bet you did, too.

So, if I happen to come across five zillion dollars in the next few months, I hope to go out with Paige and party mommy-blogger style. All I’ll say is this: There has been talk of t-shirts. I’m hoping at least one will use the phrase “circle jerk.”

    I wish I would have met you when you lived in NC- we could have had lunch and let the kids scream together.

    I blog because I like to bitch about people and say everything I can’t say. It’s cleansing…If I went to the BlogHer conf. I’d end up blogging about how there were too many people, not enough chocolate, and how I ended up lounging in the pool all day instead.

    So then you don’t want to be my Big Sister of Blogging and mentor me on all things site metering and stat gathering and poop monitoring and (oh, wait, how’d that last one slip in?).

    OK, if we do ever meet up, I swear I will speak of nothing but poop and Marguaritas. And Legolas. Can I talk about Legolas please???

    You’re probably right about everything else but to that fanny pack business I say…AS IF! No, really. I’ve never worn a fanny pack but I actually just recently acquired one and in my closet it sits. The piece de resistance, however, is the fact that it is emblazoned with a WAL-MART LOGO. I’m only keeping it becauseif I threw it out or gave it to some other unfortunate person (which is how I got it) then I would instantly find myself in need of a fanny pack. That’s just how it is for me. Yes. It does suck.

    I saw my bastard OBGYN last week and he told me to embrace my hemorrhoids. I’ll have them until I give up the baby making. He also told me to look into a tummy tuck, so I’m pretty much screwed right now.

    I voted for you. I have no idea why you aren’t winning. It blows my mind.

    For me, our meeting was more, “Super blog! Let’s eat! And then grope each other later!” See, one-on-one blog dates can be fun. BlogHer no sound fun.

    Hey, I remember when I was up for my blog award, and had wrote a post about how I didn’t want to come in last because I hate to lose and that same day, you wrote a post about how you’re not competitive and how you wouldn’t care if you came in last place or something like that and I remember thinking, “I wonder if she’s trying to tell me something” (because, you know, I make everything about me) but now that you’re up for an award, you care! See, it changes when it happens to you, you would hate being last just like I would have hated being last!

    Hey, we should go to blogher, but skip the conference, just stay at the hotel everyone is staying at and drink and gossip.

    I wore a fanny pack!! It was high-lighter yellow with black plastic on the front and I thought it was awesome. Just for the record, I only used it to keep my Quints in.

    I totally understand you not wanting to go to BlogHer - no one can tell you how to blog, that would be like telling you how to write in your diary… Hence, a conference on said topic would be pointless and boring… and a waste of money ’cause you obviously know how to blog already :D

    You know, I was thinking about how fun it would be to go to BlogHer, but as soon as you compared it to high school and the popularity contests thereof, I promptly had a severe flashback that bitchslapped me back into reality.

    And I’m forced to ask myself the same questions I asked when I was really young and didn’t have cellulite that required me to back out of a room when wearing shorts.

    What determines popularity? Are these popular bloggers important because they’ve been around longer? Is it because they’re more beautiful than the rest of us? Are they smarter somehow? Sure…some of them crank out some pretty fine writing, but that’s like saying that everyone who was popular in high school made that list because they were, every one of them, smart. I beg to differ on that count.

    No, friends, I think it’s worse than that. I think the writing is backed up by things far beyond our control. Many bloggers have been fired for their blog, but Dooce did it first. AND she blogs about acute constipation, her child’s tantrums and her recorvering Mormonism. That’s tough competition.

    Bitch PhD talks about scholarly/feminist things, BUT she’s got a husband, a kid AND a boyfriend. You heard me right. Husband and boyfriend.

    Twisty over at “I Blame the Patriarchy” writes of her addiction to tacos, her ire for all things borne of society’s continued deference to the male gender and she’s a lesbian waging a war against breast cancer.

    I might as well throw in the towel right now. And I’m not going to BlogHer.

    Ever.

    Unless someone asks me to go…and sit at the popular table.

I want to pass out in the pool and make you guys pull me back up to the room for more drinks, dragging me past the popular table with my stretchmark infested, pooch-ridden belly exposed, so everyone can see that I wrote “POPULAR ON THE INTERNET” really big across my abdomen. Then the week after Blogher, when everyone is posting pictures of their favorite blogging ladies or whatever, talking about how orgasmic it was to meet regular people, they’ll be forced to include photos of “That girl in Texas who SJ and Y had to drag across the lobby soaking wet”, too.

    Yep.

    what if the people who think like you and talk like you and actually communicate with you aren’t at the popular table? i think that’s sort of the point of wordgirl’s comment.

    all the people that i talk to regularly and really feel a connection to don’t have ‘big name’ blogs and aren’t going to be signing any autographs or posing for pictures with anyone. why is that anything to feel bad about?

    some of us don’t see any reason to put ourselves down just to feel accepted by the cool kids, you know? others of us don’t like feeling as though we have to kiss ass to be noticed by people who “inspire” us. i like a lot of the really popular blogs, but i’m not going to buy them shit and kiss their asses or follow them around blogher just to feel like i’m a part of their ‘thing’.

    sorry, I call sour grapes. it was nice to meet nice people who i had things in common with. sorry for blogging about. i won’t blog about things that happen in my life anymore. i guess i will give up my domain name now. there were women of all kinds and types of blogs at BlogHer last year hanging out together, drinking, mocking, hung over the next day. there were tables of people sitting together, does that define a clique now? i feel sad that we have to defend a really enriching, empowering experience, where we shared thoughts and knowledge with other women. offline and online experiences, with so called “big” named bloggers and just regular ol’ people like myself. every single person i met at BlogHer was friendly and inclusive.

    it costs me a lot to fly to san jose, but the conference registration is cheap, the hotel is cheap, and the booze is cheap. instead of chastising what has turned into a really impressive meet up of tons of different kids of people, try to embrace it. read the BlogHer blog, join the chats online during the conference if you can’t come, cut those of us who enjoyed ourselves and shared it some slack.

    Paige, that’s not what I meant at all. I’m sorry I didn’t make myself clear.

    I meant that when people refer to the ‘popular’ table and such and it makes them feel bad that they wouldn’t be there at this mythical table. Wouldn’t the table with your friends and the women you connect with be your own personal ‘popular table’?

    Is this making sense?

    I never said nor implied that you should follow ‘big name’ people around Blogher. I meant that you could get together with all the women you love and enjoy. Whatever their “name” is.

    okay, i feel weird about this. but i’m just going to say what i think, what i really think.

    there IS NO POPULAR TABLE. that is truly a perception produced and perpetuated only by people who weren’t there. dudes, seriously, NOT LIKE I’M FUCKING “POPULAR” now, but i sure as fuck wasn’t a year ago, and the ladies you insinuate as “circle jerk”-ing FUCKING EMBRACED my ass. not only gave me a seat at the table, but made me feel like a sister. it was simply about feeling connected to other people, not about this bullshit popularity trip.

    paige, debbie — and some others here: you fucking KNOW ME. do you guys *really* think i’d participate in shit like that? do you?

    i understand people feeling left out. i understand jealousy. i understand all that shit because i’ve felt it too, about every 10 seconds since i was 3 years old. but to say that any of the feeling expressed by those at blogher wasn’t genuine (was a circle jerk), or to suggest that what all of it really was about was about bullshit like being “popular” and dominating others socially is something i find offensive and demeaning and mortifying. these are not the “mean girls” though you clearly want to paint them as such. the feeling was real. it was lovely. i thank my lucky stars i was there.

    and i’m sorry if saying that bothers people. but what i’ve said is true, and i’m that girl from “welcome to the dollhouse.” i wouldn’t hang with in-crowd bitches, yo.
