You can participate in my 15 minutes of fame… maybe.

I’m going to the Blogher conference this summer in San Francisco. I’m glad it’s back on the West coast, because I went two years ago, but missed it last year when it was held in Chicago. Looking forward to seeing everyone again.

I just learned of a potential opportunity to read one of my essays at the closing keynote of the first day – twenty essays will be chosen across the five categories of Best Rant, Blogging About Blogging, Humor, Letter to My Body, and Parenting (details here). I need to submit my entries by Friday, so I’ve been poking around my archives, looking for something to send in.

My best work does not really fit into any of these categories, but alas, they did not supply a category of Best Downer or Most Likely to Make You Need a Drink. Nonetheless, I scraped together a few options to submit, and I wondered if you, dear readers, had any opinions on their quality? Be honest, because we all know I don’t need any more help making a fool of myself.

So if you can, please leave a comment here, or email me directly at jenzug (at) gmail (dot) com.

In the category of Parenting:
Secure Your Own Mask Before Assisting Others

In the category of Letter to my Body:
He should really teach all young men everywhere how to extract the truth from tired, chubby, stay at home moms.

In the category of Humor:
Cue Eerie Music in the Background of this scene (I hate this title, by the way)

In the category of Blogging about Blogging:
Blogging = fear + failure

If you can think of anything else I’ve written that might apply, please let me know. Not that I expect you think about it every day, and recite it to yourself in the shower. I’m sure that phase of fan-girl will come much later.

  1. Wellllll, they’re all brilliant, of course. BUT, if I HAD to choose, it would be “Secure Your Own Mask Before Assisting Others” because I soooo can relate.

  2. Ok so this is random and I will enter an opinion later about the blog choice BUT — jen, please read an email that i penned to you as I need a response!! 🙂
