SalonLGBTQ ended on Saturday and I have still not recovered. Maybe it’s because I’m old or maybe it’s because my mind is still ruminating on the content and connections from the weekend.
Deborah Goldstein and I did a session at the conference entitled “Why We Blog” and it was graphically recorded by my best gay, Anthony Weeks, who is an artist and filmmaker. Deborah and I had never presented together before which is shocking since we’ve been blog wives since sometime in 2009 and have been to numerous conferences together. So, SalonLGBTQ was our Coming Out Ball!
If I could distill the discussion down to the basic elements, we still blog because we are storytellers and we need to write, because we have met incredible people and because storytelling can change the world. I may have been a little zealous on that last point.
Deborah did a great job summarizing some of the other speakers and sessions and giving you a peek at the weekend. But, after all that learning, we had to unwind. Plus, I’ll be honest – Deborah and I can only be serious for so long.
So, when the conference was over and many of our friends had left to return home, we snuggled into bed and recorded a vlog that includes a more goofy than good takeaways. We have never vlogged together before…which might be obvious when you watch it. So many firsts at SalonLGBTQ – our first presentation, our first vlog and my very first mimosa.
So, without further ado, our first vlog!

P.S. I apologize for my aggressive counting.
P.P.S. I want a laughter ringtone or a ringtone of Deborah saying “Totes.”
P.P.P.S. Maybe someday will post the outtakes on our Facebook page because there are plenty!
P.P.P.P.S. I totally lied about the “without further ado” part, didn’t I?
