In an attempt to get myself to one of the coolest Conferences I’ve ever heard of, I’m calling in the work of Fairies. Aiming Low’s Non Conference is having it’s inaugural year at Callaway Gardens, Georgia, and I am determined to go. With the likes of Leila from Don’t Speak Whinese, Anissa from Free Anissa, and the one and only Ree from The Pioneer Woman attending, who wouldn’t want to go? So, let’s do some begging, shall we?
To my fairy godparents, aka Simply Sassy Media, I’m making my big wish. You know, the one that Timmy makes every episode on Fairly Oddparents? Yup, that one. Please send this Mama to Non Con! And don’t look at me sideways for referring to Timmy; I’m a mom of two, one who is a 7 year old boy that loves cartoons almost as much as I do. Speaking of cartoons, did you know that JC Little, The Animated Woman, will be at Non Con? I wonder if she can draw me with a tiara and M16? I mean, I tend to deal with both on a regular basis, so that would be cool.
Where was I? Oh yeah. I need this trip badly, my dear fairies. First off, I’m giving up a drill weekend to go. I love serving my Country and all, but we’re talking about learning from the who’s who of kick ass writing. I think I could wait another month to build bombs. It’s not like there’s a war going on, right?
Also, my winged, glittery friends (yes, you Sassy Media gals), I need a boost in my writing and branding swagger. Since I plan on changing the name of the blog and my whole brand this winter, Non Con with give me the go-go gadget energy to get it done. I’m scared to do it, but I know a tackle hug from Leila will make that all better.
Lastly, I need to be around just plain awesome people, minus the swag, rudeness and 4000 people that think they are the end all, be all of blogging. Non Conference is the perfect place for an introvert, anxiety-ridden, potty-mouth, wine lover like myself. I need to feel excited about blogging and bloggers again. This conference will be my saving Grace.
So…what do you think? Do you have enough fairy dust to handle my stay in the Peach State? I sure hope so. I know you’re pretty busy with all the backlogged wishes and what not, so just shoot me an email or tweet me.
Peace Out, Cub Scout…
