ETC: Do You Hate the Word "Blog" as Much as I Do?

So I'm going to be attending this blog conference today and tomorrow. Blog conferences have always seemed like a funny idea to me. I mean, I don't know about you, but I started my site precisely so that I wouldn't have to go out and talk to strangers in person. But Rusty's going, because he does this blog thing for a living, so I figured I'd check it out, too. If you're planning to be there, please look for me and say hi! I'll be the person who looks like she doesn't know what the hell she's doing at a blog conference.

In related news, the blogiverse is a little smaller -- and a little sadder -- after Glark recently announced his retirement. Is he really gone forever? I don't know. Rocky kept announcing his retirement, and we all know how that went.

I don't feel I've used the word "blog" enough in this post. One more should do it:

BLOG!

Oh, and in other news, I'm going to be on Definitely Not the Opera, some time between 1pm and 2pm tomorrow (Saturday). I'll be talking about books and censorship, and I'll be saying "fart" way, way, way too much. Don't pinch me! I'm living the dream!

Awww...that's so sad about Glark. Too many good sites have closed up shop in the last year or so.

I'm at Northern Voice too! I'll look for you - you can find me wearing one of those purple Bloggable shirts and my headphones hanging around my neck.

Kathy, I totally agree. I already miss Glark's Glarky antics. Fortunately (for me, but not the rest of the internet), I can always harass him by IM. I know where you live, Glark!

Beth, I looked for you, but didn't see you! I didn't read your comment till the end of day 1. Were you around on day 2? I'm assuming you were a volunteer... what was your take on the event?
