06 Dec That’s How I Blogroll
So picking up where I left off yesterday, I called Lisa (co-founder of Coliloquy (more on the co-founder and whether or not she’s really both co-founders and has for some bizarre reason made up a co-founder alter ego named Waynn (perhaps I will even share excerpts from the email where I accuse her of this (or not)) in a post later this week)) and we made a love connection.
We spoke and I pretended to understand what she said and I shared my berserkery excitement with her. I said, this is so shibumi (I probably didn’t say exactly that since I hadn’t invented that word yet, but if I had, I totally would have used it), I want to put another author with you too. What else are you looking for? And boom, Tawna Fenske was in.
I know, I know, you still don’t know what Coliloquy is. Ugh, pesky details.
But first, let me tell you about the title for this blog post. It’ll probably change and then this story will make no sense, but hey, that’s how I blogroll. Get it?? Blogroll?? Omg, I crack myself up. What is a blogroll anyway? I’ve just seen that term around. Should I have one??
Ok, back to my story. Oh crap. Now I totally want to change the title of the post to “That’s How I Blogroll.” You see? I knew that would happen.
So by now, you’re probably wondering what the original title was. And it was, “Just Swipe It, Mom.” I could show you how tech savvy I am and do another survey monkey to see which title you like better, but the truth is I don’t really care, and by now you probably want me to get to the point. Even I sort of want me to get to the point.
So “Swipe It, Mom” was going to be a cute little story about my mom’s generation being all afraid to make a wrong move on the computers, whereas my generation (and here’s where I had some comment about my kids being part of the swipe it generation (OMG how cool would it be if that’s what they call them?? And I coined the term?? The Swipe It Generation. Gen Swipe. (I think maybe I have blogger ADD. Is that a real thing??))), yes my generation, we just sort of look around until we find the answer.
At least that’s what I do. Don’t you? I mean, I don’t know how to do everything, but I have this general sense of what can be done. Of the possibilities out there.
So I guess when I got that call from Travis, the one I only ½ understood that got me all berserkery with excitement, and then I made that call to Lisa, the one I only ¾ understood that sent my berserkery through the roof, and then I made that call to Tawna, the one that neither one of us understood…there was just this sense of I have no freaking clue how this actually works, but I feel like this can be done, and I feel like it’s going to be HUGE.
Or maybe not.
But hey, nothing ventured, nothing gained. And it’s been super cool so far.
Real details tomorrow!!
PS – If I were better at this, do you think I would talk more about Tawna’s actual book that’s coming out with Coliloquy?? Maybe tomorrow. Or now, if you click that link beause Tawna’s much freer with the spilling of secrets.
PS – Don’t forget to tell me in the comments how annoyed you are at the tease or if you like the Shibumi Tsunami I’m building here. Holy crap, I’m on fire with these phrases. I better start trademarking them before Kasie’s husband steals them all.
