While I am excited for all of my bloggy friends who have the privilege of attending the Blissdom conference this weekend, I couldn't help but be a little sad about the fun and opportunities to learn that I'll be missing. And the Harry Connick Jr., of course.
It's easy to steer yourself right into a case of insecurity when faced with disappointments like this.
My blog's not popular enough.
I don't receive as many comments as they do.
I wouldn't know anyone anyway.
Snap out of it, Amanda!
One of the things I think I'd enjoy most is the chance to meet some of the writers whose blog posts I've come to enjoy reading daily.
So I thought, why not offer a little networking party right here at Serenity Now? A chance for all of us to show off our stuff, offer encouragement, and focus on the good things!
On Wednesday night, after 10 pm, I'll post with Mr. MckLinky and you can have a chance to stop by and link up a post that lets everyone know why YOU have a great blog too!
Do you have a unique niche? Do you make an effort to post regularly? Do you love to visit the blogs of people who comment on your site? Be creative and think beyond "I have a nice sidebar background."
It will be fun to spend a few minutes at the end of the week *meeting* a few new bloggers while our other lucky friends are off swooning over handsome Harry. When they return to blogging next week, we'll all have something fun to talk about and some new bloggy friends.
If you won't be in Nashville this weekend, I hope to see you linking up here at Serenity Now! I want to know why your blog rocks.
PS. Don't forget that the next Decorating Dilemmas Party is coming up soon! Mark your calendars!
