I will be flying to Baltimore at the end of March to speak at the first FitBloggin’ conference, the brainchild of Roni of Roni’s Weigh and Green Lite Bites and a zillion other projects that make you and I look like lazy layabouts. Since this is the first conference, attendees and speakers will really get a chance to set the tone and shape the event. It might turn into an annual thing if all goes well.
Registration is open and there are lots of other cool speakers attending. I plan on having a good time and I hope to see you there having fun too!

I’m riding the bus up to Chicago today to go to That Conference that I shall not name. Some of you are probably furrowing your brows and wondering, “Huh, what conference?” while the rest of you are thinking, “Oh dear Lord, would people shut up about that stupid conference already?” When I think about all the hullabaloo that arises around That Conference, I feel like Samuel L. Jackson at the end of the film Pulp Fiction where he’s yelling at Hunny Bunny to chill the fuck out while she continues to screech and prattle on hysterically. (See here, 2:50 mark. Beware massive profanity and low video resolution.) So, everybody, be cool, ok?
I have this odd sense of dread about attending That Conference this year and I’ve been trying to figure out why. I suppose it’s because at its worst, That Conference is a place where people claw each other’s eyes out for the chance at free iPods or laptops, all while screaming, “Look at me! Look at me! Are you looking at me [...]

I’m happy to see that some of my online friends have submitted a proposal for a panel at the 2009 BlogHer conference. If you are a fan of Roni, MamaVISION, Steph, or Melissa, take a moment to vote for their panel, will you? It’s a bit tricky to figure out, so follow these instructions:
Log into BlogHer if you’re already a member. If you’re not a member, register here.
Go to the Blogs & Body Image: What are we teaching our kids? proposal page.
Click on the link at the top that says, “I would attend this session”
And you’re done! Thanks.

As I was standing in the hallway at the Blog Indiana conference last week waiting for a session to end, two men were chatting next to me about burning down the place where I work.
“Yeah, I hate PastaQueen’s workplace,” one said. “They’re evil.”
The other man got out his business card and said, “I agree. I’d love to take them down.” He handed his card over.
“I’ll help you go down there and torch the place some night,” the first man replied.
Wow, I thought as I stared through the glass door willing the session to end. I’d better not mention where I work. And next time I’m at the office I’d better take careful note of the fire exits.
Despite this flaming start, I enjoyed hanging with Hoosier bloggers last weekend. I wasn’t sure what to expect from a first-time blogging conference where the main focus was our location. Indiana is known more for its corn than its blogs and physical location seems irrelevant when it comes to the web. Many people blog because they can’t find people [...]
