This list seems to be never ending.  Maybe I will get the hint, that I apparently am giving myself, and stop doing the opposite of what successful bloggers do.

Most likely not.


Things Successful Bloggers Do That I Do Not Do

3. Go to Blogher.

I am going to lay into my mailman because I have been anxiously waiting for my invite and it is suspiciously missing.  If I see a short guy in blue mid thigh shorts in any of PW's blogher re-caps I am gonna be ticked off.

I gotta be really honest here, I don't 'get' blogher.  Seriously.  I went on there and got signed up about 2 years ago and was so lost and confused.  I tried to find other blogs 'like me'.  Mommy.  Christian.  Stay at home christian mommy.  Bites her nails when nervous.  Eats snickers bars in stages.  Can't pet a dog without washing hands immediately afterward.  Likes the smell of gasoline. 

You know, just an average gal.

So I tried out the 'religious' category and was attacked by a witch (her self description) and a atheist.  Apparently 'religion' has many, many different definitions.

In the 'mommy' category someone was arguing that if one more person asked her when her and her husband of 9 years were going to have kids she was going to punch them in the neck.

I just can't seem to relate.

So anyway, all you blogging diva's of the world, look for me next year.  I am sure my invitation won't get lost this time!

    I thought I was just a poor, confused soul.
