It's inevitable, summer is bound to slip away. She does it every year. She is sneaky and good at hiding.
I was thinking it might be fun to look at the brighter side of falling into fall.
So. Here are some things that are up and coming in the land of the EO:
- On September 11th, I'll be speaking at the first-ever Minnesota Blogger Conference in St. Paul. My session is 45 minutes long and is called "Authentic Blogging: The benefits and risks of sharing your personal life online." I plan to dance and sing. Kidding. I'm really looking forward to this, friends. I wish you could all be there. Except I don't, because that would make me nervous and I'm currently not all that nervous. Anyway. The conference filled up so quickly, a lot of people are bummed to have missed registration. So, just so you know...you can head to an event the night before the actual conference if you're nearby. It's open to all bloggers, not just attendees.
- I've talked about the Liz Logelin Foundation several times in the past, and I'm happy to say that September means I get to talk about it again. A few events are on the horizon, including the Gala, the 5k, and this year, if you're not in The Minnesota, you can take part in an online auction on September 17th for donated items from Gussy, One Hope Wine, and many more. Sidenote: Matt Logelin is speaking at the Minnesota Blogger Conference. His session is after mine, so I plan to sit and listen with no nerves, while eating popcorn. I can't wait. (Okay. Fine. I don't actually know if I'll have popcorn, but it sounds good right now.)
- The Type A Mom Conference is the weekend of September 24-26. I have the honor of speaking on the Revolutionary Blogging panel. This adventure will most likely involve hours and hours in the car with Maggie Dammit. Who knows, maybe we'll hate each other by the time we get to North Carolina and then we'll sit on the same panel with our arms crossed and tell everyone we don't share a sobriety date anymore. Could be very dramatic. You should come.
Alright, that's enough for now, friends. With all of these lovely endeavors on the horizon, the only other thing I have planned is more of this:
And more of that:
Oh. And the writing of the book. I plan to keep plugging away at that, even when it hurts.
Happy September, friends.
