BlogHer blogging

So I made it here and I'm talking to people and introducing myself and being very gulping and scared but trying to talk to people.


I will try to write some longer posts, but I think this will be a bits and pieces kinda weekend. I've been hanging out with Cecily and Sarah and Alexa and Mel and SweetSaltyKate (and too many to name!) and I'm hanging out with Emma right now and I've met a zillion other people, and I'm glad I came.

I have to admit, I'm in hyperoverdrive and REALLY WAY TOO INTENSE for some people right now. I'm already an intense person, but damn these convention weekends make me more so, and if I am too intense for you----TELL ME. It's good, cause like, I really don't want to be the woman walking down the runway of life with my skirt tucked in the back of my pantyhose, you know? Emotional skirts or literal skirts.

To my new readers by the way, although I introduced myself with my real name, I am extremely conscious of my anonymity and do NOT want to be identified online as anything other than Aurelia, ok? If you want to know, feel free to read archives or ask or whatever, but the short and sweet version is that my family history is bad and I don't want to be found by that family. EVER. It's safety peeps. Also, I blog about some pretty personal stuff and in real life there are some pretty damn judgey people out there when it comes to some of my blog subjects.

So here I am.


  1. I'm so happy you are having a good time that I am hardly even hating you right now....

  2. just heard you comment at the BlogHer keynote- so well said. The friendships created through blogging are like no other.

    Take Care!

    PS Love your header quote-I am using the same one on my blog mission!

  3. Soooo jealous!!! But glad you are having a good time. : )

  4. I'm jealous too. I was there the last two years, but alas, my sponsor didn't send me this year :-( My kids are particularly upset about missing out on the swag :-)

  5. Dude, I totally want to go. Can just anybody attend BlogHer?

    Oh, and I saw your pic on Mel's blog. Either you're related to Cousin It, or you need a haircut. With a weed whacker :-)

  6. Yo! Mwah!

    So glad to have met you.

  7. Hnaging with you was a highlight - definitely a highlight!

  8. I found you through Where there's a Willer and just wanted to let you know that I've been reading a tonne of your posts, from your archives and that I really appreciate how personable you are. I look forward to getting to reading more and hope that that doesn't seem creepy. All the best.

  9. Just dropping by to say hi and hoping your family's doing well.
