Ode to BlogHer ’09

by Telling Dad on July 28, 2009

I’ve heard quite a bit about the drama that unfolded at BlogHer 2009. Rather than simply rehash the same stories in the written word I decided to take about 20 hours out of my life to put it to song. I didn’t even play Party Bingo or Words With Friends.

Important Disclaimer:

1. No, I don’t think I can sing.

2. No, I was not there. These are the stories I’ve read and been told.

3. Yes, it is totally made in jest.

I hope you enjoy! And if not…you REALLY need to lighten up! :)

Please share with others if you enjoy it. Heck, even if you hate it!


I would love to hear comments and read about re-tweets. :)


Update (11:27pm CST): I want to thank everyone for their kind words. I doubt it will encourage me to sing again (you can all thank me later) but I was asked to create a button inspired from the song. So, have at it! :)

Wow, even those who were there couldn't have captured the drama so well. You did an incredible job, and it's hilarious! But I gotta get in a plug.:)

I was the mic wrangler for the International Scholarship Winners Panel. And I gotta be honest, if I weren't I may not have been among the 20 or so in the room. I may have been off trying to score a vibrator or sneak through the backdoor of a party to snag a swag bag.

But I'm so glad I was where I was.

The four women, from Bolivia, Malawi, Zimbabwe, and India, had a common theme-they started their blogs to help solve a problem they saw in their country. And it wasn't as simple as being marginalized or dissatisfied. They face risks of persecution for continuing their blogs, and lord knows no one's giving them free Tide. But they do it, and they speak with gratitude and humility of the service they provide. It moved more than one person in the room to tears. It could not have been more polar opposite from some other scenes playing out. And it will be the moment I always carry with me from Blogher 09. I just wish more could have seen it- next year, those winners should be honored as part of the Community Keynote. They deserved better. Thanks for letting me share, and I truly love your video.

Great music video! And although this introvert mostly hid out away from the fray and attended sessions, it was still amusing to hear about the drama that probably happened right under my nose and I didn't even notice.

By now, most of the swag they clamored over is probably lost, broken by toddlers, or stored forever in "why the hell did I take this" purgatory.

Greg, You were always funny and creative. I am glad you are finally sharing it more. You can be a pain as a brother but I love you so.

The whole time I was listening to the video I was like "wait, is that Billy Joel singing?" Funny as sh*t. And right on for someone who wasn't there. You take good notes.

I missed the drama too. Thank God.

See you next year in NYC!

Totally late here, but that was hilarious. And you've got a great voice. That was the best recap ever. I wasn't actually there either so I'm just going with your version.

I know I'm a wee bit late getting to view this post, but it totally gave me the giggle I needed this morning. I honestly had stayed out of the loop of the whole BlogHer thing (simply because I was horribly jealous of all who attended!) and I really hadn't heard much about the crazy-pants swag drama. Makes me thankful that I wasn't a part of that mess, at least!

I know how people (*a-hem* especially women!) can get when free things are involved, and every now and then I feel the OMG-GIMME-GIMME madness creeping in, and really have to fight it. I think that it's especially awful when it ends up adding a bunch of crap to something that is supposed to be fun and happy.

In any case, the video you made was seriously hilarious and perfect and heartfelt and witty all at once! I'm so glad I ended up discovering it! Well done you.

:)
