Post Blogging Conference Brain Fog

Over the weekend I attended the 6th annual MilBlog Conference in Arlington, Virginia.  The weekend was jam-packed with interesting speakers and business cards and introductions and free stuff and old friends and new friends and Facebook status updates and opportunities and late nights and copious amounts of wine and most importantly, lots and lots of fun.

I want to write all about it but I'm currently suffering from post blogging conference brain fog.  I'm back to reality.  I'm still not unpacked.  I realized I left my lesson plans at school last week so I have no idea what I'm teaching today (and I can't imagine my room full of 6-year-olds will be very forgiving).  My voice is virtually nonexistent from talking so much.  The gas light in my car is on, and I desperately need to make a grocery run.  But you know what?  The weekend was so worth it all the craziness I'm bound to face today.  I wouldn't trade this post blogging conference brain fog for anything.

It's truly amazing how influential military bloggers have become.  That's evidenced by the fact that we're being recognized in this morning's New York Times.  (And by the way, you might see a quote from someone you know.)


  1. YAY!!! Good for you! Congrats on the celebrity status ;)

  2. Can't wait to hear all about it! :)

  3. You are just flippin' awesome. I am so glad I got to meet you! I will be emailing you some pictures soon... as in once I make my lazy self upload them to my laptop.

    Which will be soon. Really.


  4. Congrats! Great article. Thanks for "representing" and I hope the fog clears soon. Looking forward to hearing more.

  5. Very cool! And it's so true, blogging has changed and has changed our society. I can't imagine where I would be right now, as a military spouse, were it not for the blogs. I think I would feel SO handicapped. Because I didn't have a senior spouse reaching out to me when we got to Benning or moved here. I only had my BBs to help me figure things out and let me know that it was okay, I wasn't the first person having these feelings or facing these challenges. I am thankful everyday for our little blog world...that's not so little anymore!

    I saw that quote you made!!! I'm so glad you had fun, I wish I could have gone!

  7. Congrats on seeing your quotes in the NY awesome!

  8. That sounds like it was soooo much fun! I will definitely love to know when the next one is!, as it always seems to go with me after a vacation or have to get a breather and back to "normal" :o)

    Blessings & Aloha!

  9. I want to go so badly next year! It was prom weekend for my two oldest, so I would have lived with the guilt of missing that for the rest of my life if I had gone...

    Glad you had a great time!
