Points of order:
- There is no “we,” there is only me.
- There is no wizard, there are web developers and bloggers.
- There are no ruby slippers, there are sneakers.
- I’ve never been to Kansas.
- The part of Toto will be played by a 14 pound Bengal-Abyssinian cat with aggression issues.
Today I am going to WordCamp San Francisco.
I’m a little worried – although the conference says it is for users and developers alike, I’m reading the program and getting a little concerned. If the titles of the presentations don’t make sense to me, I’m worried that I may find the content about as comprehensible as a diagram of the interior of the Hubble Space Telescope.
So, I will either come home full of a better, deeper, richer understanding of this new world of blogging I find myself in, with gems of wisdom to share, a more fulfilled sense of purpose, and chock-full of exciting, sparkly ideas. Or, I will come home with a headache and my contact lenses glued to my eyeballs, blinking like the proverbial deer-in-the-headlights, convinced that I have no business in this place at all, and wondering where on earth I ever even got the idea that I spoke English.
Could go either way.
I’m trying to come up with a way that I get MP’s for attending a blogging conference, and I’m really drawing a blank. But maybe if I learn some ways to clean up around here, you know, better side-bars with more interesting widgets, more reader-friendly layouts, an extra bathroom with those fluffy little fingertip towels, then maybe I’ll have some earning potential to work with.
But I’ll keep you posted.
