>When I started writing at the Campaign for Unshaved Snatch (CUSS) & Other Rants 500 posts ago (Why the world needs pubic hair), I didn’t know shit about html. Obviously, I still barely know shit, as I have yet to figure out how to fix my lack of site feed success and a whole host of other things that I want to be able to do. It got to the point where I considered buying a book about blogging using Blogger. That is pretty fucking pathetic.

For this reason and more, I am super excited to go to BlogHer ‘06, the best damn women bloggers’ conference around. There is a button on the sidebar of CUSS that promotes BlogHer ‘06. It does not work if you click on it because, no matter how many times the nice BlogHer editors explained what I needed to do to make it link back to the BlogHer ‘06 site, I did not do it right. So first, I am going to try and learn some actual technical skills, such as how to make buttons work. This will be very exciting.

Second, and probably more important, I am going to actually meet some of the best bloggers in person. Bloggers who seriously crack me up. Bloggers who make me think a bit harder about the state of the world. Generally, I hate conferences because I have unreliable social skills. In the right situation, I am super friendly and chatty and will have a grand ol’ time with the crowd. In the not right situation, the social skills malfunction and I wind up standing in a corner by myself feeling stupid.

When I registered for BlogHer ‘06, I was more than a wee bit nervous that I would fly all the way out to San Jose and wind up in a corner by myself. While I could save money and do this at home, I hoped for the best, and figured that I’d at least get about 8,000 air miles out of it, so why not? The conference is in about 3 weeks, and I think it will be great. Come join us if you can.
