Itâ€™s a funny thing about me â€“ you could have put me in front of a microphone on stage to address all 400 people at Blogher today and I would have stunned you with my articulate genius. I commented freely and confidently in all the sessions I attended. But I couldnâ€™t even manage to introduce myself to the gal I sat next to at lunch today.
Strange, but true. I am an awkward social networker.
Oh well, I DID talk to a stranger at the airport, so there is progress in my social networking awkwardness.
On another note, there are two things I would never want to be perceived as. One, is a tourist – I will go to great lengths to look like a local when traveling.
Two, is a fan-girl. Iâ€™m not really into celebrity. Iâ€™d much rather chase fire engines for excitement. But when I saw Heather Armstrong across the room â€“ in real life â€“ my reflexes kicked in and my arm shot out in front of me with camera in hand. The picture nearly snapped itself.
It was an exciting, information-filled day, and Iâ€™m very grateful to be here. I will get a decent nightâ€™s sleep and try to be less awkward tomorrow!
