in How I love the Interwebs

Congratulations to Katrina of Fickle Feline, winner of Mabel’s Labels “send a blogger to BlogHer” contest! Her award-winning entry is terrific, she seems like a lovely person, and I’m genuinely thrilled that she won.

Although I no doubt made a pest of myself with my multi-media campaign to garner your votes, I have to admit that I’m both disappointed and a little bit relieved to not be the big winner. The idea of heading off all by my lonesome to a girlie-fest of famous bloggers frankly scared the socially-awkward pants off of me, much as I really wanted to go. And I’d’ve fretted the whole time about leaving Beloved and the boys behind, sad though that may sound.

I owe every single one of you that voted for me a heart-felt thank you, though, and sloppy wet smooches to those of you who really stepped up by tweeting or even blogging to scam a few more votes for me. And I’ll gleefully thumb my nose at those of you who simply rolled your eyes and hoped I’d stop with all the embarrassing grovelling already. I had fun campaigning for your votes, and I hope you did, too.

Congratulations, Katrina, and thanks again to the folks at Mabel’s Labels! You should buy their stuff – I do!

Dani – thanks for the well wishes! I hope that you find a way to get to BlogHer as well so we can meet up.

Is there another way you can get there? I must say that I am disappointed…I thought you would get to go! You are so gracious, congratulating Katrina and everything…makes me think you deserve to go even more now! =)

Thats too bad (although I am sure Katrina is a deserving winner). I have to admit that BlogHer scares me. But then I am a pretty small fish. And it is such a big pond, with such big fish…

Oh damn. Well, congrats to Katrina, anyway.
