the god(desse)s of the blogosphere have been kind


some calm, restful images to help calm my mounting excitement over the impending arrival of blog camp.  tomorrow around noon, extranjera, B, polly, seaside girl and kristina will either arrive or meet me at the copenhagen airport. all of the last preparations are being made, the cleaning girl is here, and i'm feeling ready. but i definitely can't sit still. in some ways, it's quite extraordinary and remarkable that this is really happening. an idea thrown out one sunday on a whim, now coming to fruition.


i think it's really brave of five people who have never met me, except here on my blog, to buy plane tickets (for four of them) and come to stay at my house in another country for a whole weekend. it's like beyond belief cool. and i am in awe of their bravery. all kinds of crazy, "am i good enough thoughts" have crossed my mind, but those are mostly quiet now. i think we can't help but have a fantastic time. we hope you'll follow along with the madcap antics all weekend over on the blog camp blog. and hopefully, it will inspire you to want to be part of blog camp II in september.

and speaking of amazing people in cyberspace...you must go check out the latest guerilla marketing from stacey childs of discounderworld. she's got to be the coolest kiwi out there. while you're there, be sure to order your copy of the Gold Edition of Discounderworld (it's so exciting i actually used capital letters)! 
don't you just love the idea of guerilla marketing? and the whole way that ideas happen here in this bloggy world and then people get involved and suddenly things happen in reality and not only in cyberspace. i love that about the blogosphere.

Oh, here I go again with the jealousy. Can't wait to see what you girls come up with this weekend! I love your peaceful, calming photos.

Amanda just said what I am feeling. Not going to go into the green or insane part again because we already know it's there.
The photos are great.
What about the tiaras? I meant to send you some, but then got busy and forgot. Bummer, would have been fun. Not sure if there's a way to overnight them to DK but I'll look into it.
Watch out for axe murderers.
And jealous bloggers who might have to use an axe on husbands who are still against the whole idea.

So, I know that it's not really typical of you or your cohorts to do vlogs, but I think that a vlog from Blog Camp would be AWESOME. Have tons of fun for all of us jealous bleeps who can't come!

Starlene said...

Wow!!! I'm so excited for all of you! I'll be there in spirit...my calm, happy spirit from the future, that is. Not the crazy one from now. : D

Have fun everyone!

Sounds like so much fun! Have a brrrrrrilliant time and don't forget to tell us ALL about it.

But how will you all recognise each other? Are you all going to be carrying rocks?? Or bottles of tequila??

Sigh...I am eagerly awaiting blog camp III. Septemeber is serious marathon training time.

clairedulalune said...

So excitied for you all! Can't wait to hear all about it!

Bee said...

I think that we are all probably feeling a bit envious and a lot curious to see how you get on with this real-life experiment. I've met several of my blog-friends, though, and found them to be astoundingly like their "voices."

I'm looking forward to Blog Camp, too, even if I have to share the fun vicariously. :)

Stacey Childs said...

Hey, jealous! Have fun, and isn't it cool how ideas in cyberspace come true.... I hope mine does, and thanks for your support Julie! You are choice!

This is such a cool idea and plan. I hope one day to be in on such a trip, another way of saying"jelousy"! Enjoy the togetherness and the camp.
I love the new design and colors. Beautiful photos too.
