When you think about it, in comparison to the millions of blogs in existence, only a few bloggers are able to attend BlogHer; those who are going just have bigger mouths large readerships good reason to write about it:

THEY’RE BLOGGERS, PEOPLE!  We ALL write about the minutia of our lives, and in a blogger’s life?  Meeting the people you read IN REAL LIFE is tantamount to a middle-aged hacker golfing in a foursome with Tiger and Phil and Vijay, or a highschool basketball standout playing with Michael Jordan, or ME COOKING DINNER WITH PAULA DEEN!!! 

So, for the OVERWHELMING MAJORITY of the rest of us, we’ll continue blogging as usual without the concern of plane crashes or falling into an earthquake crevice or being run over by a wayward railcar or having to eat beans and rice for a month to make up for travel expense.  See?  All good things.

Oh, and one more thing…YOU’RE INVITED to a special cyber-party for those NOT attending BlogHer!  Simply write a party post and link it back tonight beginning at 10 p.m. EST (9:00 Central).

It’s your choice what to include, but I’d love to find some wonderful party recipes you might have; hopefully, you’ll be meeting some new bloggers, so a quick intro post might be good including a FEW links to your favorite archived posts; or maybe you’d like to offer "party favors" (aka a giveaway). 

A word of advice–the briefer your post, the better, ’cause that will allow you to visit a few more bloggy friends (note to self:  read, then re-read previous sentence!).

Karen at Simply…A Musing Blog and co-host of Behind the Blog radio show has set up a chat for us beginning at 10 p.m. EST (9:00 p.m. Central).  Just follow these easy directions:

1. Go to http://www.blogtalkradio.com and sign
up for a free "listener account" by clicking on "Register" on
the top blue navigation bar and join in the conversation.

2. Once you’ve done that, you can find our chat tonight by typing in www.blogtalkradio.com/simplyamusingdesigns
and then once we’re live and on the air, you can click on the button that says,
"listen" and a new page will open up and you’ll see the chat

3. If you’d like to chat in the chat room, once you’ve clicked on the listen
button, you should see another button that says "chat live" and if
you click it, a new window will pop up and you’ll be in our chat room and ready
to chat.

Last but not least, please help spread the word!  Pick up the button and link the image back to my main page–write a post, Tweet it, Plurk It, Stumble it and Kirtsy it…with a party, I’m all about the more the merrier!  Mr. Linky will be up by 10 EST, earlier if I’m able :).

Have I left anything out?  Email or leave a comment, and I’ll get back to you when I’m able. 

Make friends.  Mix and mingle.  The party may start at 10:00 EST tonight, but I suspect it’ll last all weekend long 😉 :).
