So I'm going to a conference on Thursday. A blogging conference. A blogging conference for Christians. A blogging conference for Christian women.
I'm thinking right now that I'm not ready for it.
But I will go. And I will be happy to be there. And I will enjoy my time with Monica.
But I will NOT be wearing anything new or anything sponsored by a corporate anybody.
I will NOT have lost those pesky 15 pounds for the sake of the conference.
I will NOT have on my Jesus face the entire weekend because…I imagine I will struggle with sin at some point during the conference.
But I WILL be happy to speak honestly with anyone I get the opportunity to meet.
I'll just be speaking honestly in my favorite jeans and sweater.
And I may hibernate a little at night because I'm a raging introvert.
And that's about all I have to say about that.

You sound like my kind of gal! Be yourself..no plastic Stepford smiles..just real people.
Awww… I wish I could go and meet you!
Oh good, I can hibernate too – my introverted self is already nervous about all the socializing 🙂
Umm, wait you get to go away all by yourself for a weekend. Sounds awesome! Can I go? I won’t talk to you.
LOVE this attitude!!
Me too! I’m ready for some authenticity! Can’t wait to meet you Meghan!
I had no idea you were an introvert after meeting you at the Summit! Have fun and let us know what you learn.
Do what I often do…
I’ll sign up for a conference or what not, then get extremely introverted too (I’m crazy like that, I appear very extroverted but in fact I’m an introvert!!!)
So, instead of doing the conference thing much, I make a quick jog or two around the book fair, etc for freebies and ideas. Then I might make one or two sessions.
Then I quit and I go shopping or to local venues, sightseeing, whatever. I always leave happy thinking I did what was best for me.
You’ll have a good time, one way or another.
I am sure you are going to have a blast, and I can’t wait to hear all about it!
Not me, man. I’m aiming to razzle-dazzle. Got me some shiny pink shoes yesterday. ($8)
🙂 Hope I get to say hey to you there.
Sounds like lots-o-kindred spirits here! (Minus the shiny pink shoes, that is… *grin*)
lol..I am with you on everything but the introvert part…I am definitely the opposite but everything else is right on with me! no sponsors here, not even sharing a room…just hoping to renew my faith and meet some great gals (oh and learn more about blogging)…hope to meet you!
You sound like a keeper in my book. I’d be glad to call you friend. 🙂
