in the aura of blog camp 1.0


i'm still basking in the afterglow of blog camp 1.0. it was a success beyond my wildest expectations (and my expectations were quite wild). i'm still processing all of the many thoughts and feelings that are tumbling through my brain but after two action-packed days, two very late nights and relatively early mornings in a row (and some lovely patron tequila), i am rather exhausted, so those will have to wait before tumbling out onto the page.

i came home from the airport just in time to grill sausages and halloumi and marshmallows with my family and then i retired to the upper garden with mma ramotswe (i've got the new one) and a glass of wine (yup, i could still drink wine). husband came up and sat with me for awhile, but soon, i was snoozing away. and my snooze turned into a two hour nap in the late-afternoon sunshine, lulled to sleep by the songs of the birds overhead. blog camp was pretty tiring. :-)

i'll be sharing some of the pictures/highlights/impressions/reflections all week, both here and on the blog camp blog.

but for now, thank you girls (and they were all girls, despite our little jokes trying to convince otherwise), for a beautiful weekend! be sure to visit B and extranjera and kristina and polly and seaside girl to see their impressions this week as well. and don't forget to check in on the blog camp blog, because we've got some post-blog camp 1.0 fun planned there. and if you have specific questions you'd like us to answer, please ask them over there, so all can answer!

I'm amazed at the sheer STAMINA of you girls/not girls. Still blogging, tweeting etc despite post BC exhaustion. True pioneers!!!!

Now, dish the gossip. Also, I emailed you your 5 questions. No slacking, get on with it ;-)

So, BC 1.5 in Suffolk. Who's in? Who likes to camp? And really go wild with pigs 'n' horses 'n' owls 'n' foxes 'n' Mr Spuds?

Glad you had fun! And I'm still confused about the whole girl/not girl thing. Even though I read all of the posts to try and make sense of it, I'm still lost!

I wish I could have been a part of blog camp 1.0, but am in the process of trying to get husband to agree to bc 2.0. Hopefully I get there by bc 10 or so.
Cant wait to get to the thoughts/feelings/impressions.

It's taken me forever to get through this one, because I kept getting diverted by all of the linkage! Extra, extra cool "aura" photo.

btw, I can't open extrajenara's blog. I've had this problem lately with several blogs. Anyone else know what's up?
