More Notes From the Bleeding Heart Liberal Capitalist Pig*

Answers to frequently asked questions about ads on my blog:

1) No I'm not selling out my kids.

2) Wal-Mart, Domino's Pizza, and the NRA.

3) Well no one is forcing you to read it, be-yatch.

4)Hahaha, yes! I totally agree with that.

5)About a million dollars a month, give or take.

BlogHer '07 I'm Speaking

To find out what the questions are--and even ask your own--come see me on Day 2 of the BlogHer conference next month, where I'm super honored to be a part of a panel called Professional Blogging: Business Considerations. It's just a schmancy title for balancing the art and commerce of blogging; or in other words, making a few bucks off your little corner of the internet without selling your soul or pissing off your readers.

It's easy to recognize me: I'll be the one with the postpartum spare tire and clothes three years out of date, who refuses to stand up from behind the table.

*In case you're thinking, "huh?" The original post that the title references can be found here.

Bossy can't wait to attend your conference. She'll be the annoying one in the front taking notes. And filming it. And making an audio back-up tape.

In the meantime, come on over to I Am Bossy to find out how frustrating a blog without the balance of commerce really is... especially when one is writing Hate Ditties about Technorati:

Jennster? What do you mean you won't be there? I thought you were going?

Liz, did you just write the words Capitalist Pig on your blog? I find that somewhat weird.

;) Or maybe not. But at first, I had no clue whatcha was talkin' 'bout.

Ha. You crack me up.

I have absolutly no idea what Blog-Her is and I even went to the website. Oh well. But I really want pizza now for some odd reason.

I have no desire to go to Blogher this year. I think I'm just too into my new man right now.

But, DAMMIT, if I'd have known you were speaking this year, I'd have told him to buzz off when he first asked me out.

Priorities, ya know.

Awesome, congrats! I have a feeling I'll be at that panel, if only to see if anyone has any BlogAds invites.

If you get me to BlogHer I will sit in the audience and ask all the questions you want asked. I am very assertive and will hog the floor ensuring that it all goes your way.


Congrats on the speaking engagement!

Very cool! Look forward to seeing you again! You're going to be the Wanda Sykes of the panel *wink wink* a.k.a. the coolest...

Sniff, sniff. I wish I could see you at Blogher this year, but our vacation overlaps. Maybe next year. BTW, you will be awesome!

(and totally off topic, but your title reminds me of my Halloween costume the time we first met--ahhhh)

YAH BABY! I will be there with bells on.

I hope the answer to #2 is "Who can't in this space..." Because I AM A BLEEDING HEART LIB TOO.

I so wish that I was going to be there. You know, now that I'm a blogger and all. But I feel like it's going to take me forever to figure out how to leave the house, let alone the state...
