today my friend broad sent me a link to a news story about blogher coming to our area. fo-shizzle! apparently they're taking the thing on the road and touring six cities--scratch that, i read further and it said four cities had been cancelled (ours was one of them) but there will be a blogher in boston (i think) and dc.
broad and i talked about whether (if it were here) we'd attend and "out" ourselves if we did. i quickly said hells no. i would totally love to go to blogher, i'm sure i'd learn a lot and could actually put it to use for work. however, i could never, ever "out" myself. i'd feel so exposed. seriously folks, this is all for me. it's cheaper than therapy. it's an ego trip because i sometimes feel like i might be entertaining to a few people. and you know, it's fun and i love to write.
broad, however, could totally go to blogher and out herself cos she blogs about a specific topic (politics) and doesn't toss in a lot of homelife/personal stuff in there. i predict that in the next year or so broad could totally have a huge following (potentially make money on her blog) if she just had more traffic. and, whether you are politically minded or not (i am not) she's a good writer.
so, if you could, would you go to blogher? and, if you did, would you reveal yourself?
