You may remember that I’m going to the Savvy Blogging Summit in July. I’m totally excited as I am dreaming more and more of where this blog could go. Just last night, I was at a pool party for my husband’s work, eavesdropping on a conversation between several women complaining about their struggles to keep their homes out of chaos.
Seriously people, we’re not alone.
But still, going somewhere and identifying myself publicly as a slob scares the blankety-blank out of me. Meeting new people and sharing my deepest-darkest secret, probably within the first two sentences? Aaaaahhhhh!
So, in an effort to fit in, I want a really cool business card holder. I haven’t ordered my business cards yet . . . but I’ve thought about it, designed one, and chickened out just shy of ordering them. It’s that “finishing” issue again.
Another blogger who is going, and who seems to be quite down-to-earth and fun, the kind of real-life person I gravitate toward, is working hard to earn the money she needs to go. Meghann Dunham blogs at the Half-Pint House, and also has an etsy shop full of ultra-cute bags and such in quilty, monogrammy styles. In an effort to get the word out about the stuff she’s selling to pay her way, she has asked the attendees to link to her site and store, and she’s going to give the first twenty-five of us who do a business card holder.
My regular readers know that if I’m going to carry around business cards, I should really have a holder for them. It’ll be embarrassing enough to introduce myself as “Nony the Slob” without also digging in my abyss of a purse for 30 minutes trying to produce a business card. Knowing me, and how summer goes, I could accidentally pull out a pair of one of my kids’ undies.
And, best of all, if she has to give one to me, that will pretty much be a guarantee that someone will talk to me!!!
And who knows, maybe one day I’ll have my own house under control, and when I eavesdrop on another conversation like last night’s, I’ll be bold enough to pull out my cutesy little business-card-holder and share my hope with them!
