It's not about the sessions, it's not about what I'm learning from listening to people speak, it's the one-on-one talking that I'm doing with women I never would have met if it weren't for this medium and this conference. I'm blown away by the opportunity of it. Blogging has changed my life. I'm like a freakin' religious convert.
All the implications of what have happened today will have to be processed and brought to life rather slowly. I'm changing. My blogging identity is likely to change (or more accurately, it has been changing slowly over the life of the blog). I'm loving what is happening to me even as it's freaking me out a bit.
Update: Oh! Oh! I forgot! My biggest thrill? As part of the opening of the conference they presented a slide show which included different bloggers' responses to the question "Why do you blog?". When my beautiful nina turns 40 banner (thanks Gary) came up on that screen, I, well, I squealed, yet again.
