I am going to the Type-A blog conference. This week. I can’t believe it. I am not ready and for the most part don’t even know how to get ready. I have checked out the site, printed off my ticket, looked at the site blog conferences for newbies, forgotten to twitter, became a fan on facebook….I have also, changed my blog header 6 times, tweaked my colors on my blog, finally switched to wordpress and a self hosted blog, figured out with help how to use ftp and rss feeds.

Now I still feel like I need to decide what to wear, what to take, get a new notebook, since I like to write notes not just type them….I also still need to do some actual work on my blog. I don’t know why I can’t have people leave comments, and I don’t know how to show my followers. I don’t know how to manage my time at home and working on my blog….but I do have some amazing business cards thanks to Katie and Megan!……and……thanks to David’s computer guys that drink coffee…….doing that mom balancing act is a little easier with a laptop.

I wrote part of this post while waiting on the bus this afternoon, caught up on my facebook and friend’s blogs while waiting for band to finish up this evening, and came home and told David that I still had not figured out the comments part of my blog. He reminded me that Thesis, the cool theme I am using, comes with a support forum. I checked out the forum, updated my askimet key (something I know I need but still do not understand) and checked my design options…and guess what?! COMMENTS!

So, off to bed I can go, with several things finished before I head into Asheville for the weekend!

Your site looks lovely! I don’t know exactly what the akismet key is, either. :)

ok, I went to your etsy site, wanted to order your 1974 fabric (red, blue paisley) ironing board cover, LOVE IT! Well, my husband has the credit card with him, at work…anyway, would rather do money order or check…so did I order it? I know I didn’t pay for it…I’m not usually this dumb, but I’m tired.

Joining your blog as well…Lezlee

Great to meet you, too! Loved walking and talking to get pizza in downtown Asheville…that was a first for me, but definitely not the last! We will just have to chat online until we can go get pizza together again!
