Impersonating a Blogger?

So when I caught ShePost's tweet today about a "crazy woman pretending to be a blogger," for a moment I was worried they were referring to me.  After all, it's been a good long time since our last visit together and, having not been at this bloggy thing all that long, I still feel a bit strange saying "I have a blog" and even stranger saying it to my friends and family.  I did finally sort of "came out" to my Facebook friends & fam with my last post, but if they're reading, they are awfully quiet about it...comments, anyone?  ::crickets chirping::

But, as with any new endeavor, I know that with practice I'll blog better, and will eventually find my blog voice and feel less like that "crazy woman pretending to be a blogger."  Or at least the "pretending to be a blogger" part.  I'm learning from a lot of great folks, many of whom I'm looking forward to meeting, or seeing again, at the May 20 Minnesota Bloggers Event.  (A big ol' Just After Bedtime shoutout to Molly of The Snyder 5 for putting this together!)  Can't wait to pester the blogging vets with lots of questions...

And as for that real pretend-blogger?  Yiiiiiiikes.  It never ceases to amaze me that if people took their collective energy spent coming up with ways to get away with crap and devoted it instead to doing something good in this world, my, what a wonderful world it would be.  I can keep hoping, I suppose. 

So, how have YOU been?


  1. I'm completely a real-pretend blogger most days. But that's ok - join the club, its a fun one!

  2. We all have our moments when we just can't get it all in. Take the time to find out what you want to be as a blogger, it will come.

    I so wish I was going next week, BUT I am coming on Saturday!!

  3. You're definitely a real blogger. Welcome to the craziness! ;)

  4. I read that post on Sheposts yesterday too! So crazy! And yes you are a real blogger! See you next TH night!

  5. You are officially a blogger, silly. That crazy lady? She's nuts. I read that post earlier today and just shook my head. I liked how she was so quick to sell out her friend. And start her own blog. ha ha.

  6. So good to meet you tonight - I'm afraid you are a real blogger - you have a URL, you write posts, and you hang out with bloggers! It's nice to meet someone with a similar background and similar new endeavors too!
