Weenie told me to write a post about my crazy grandma, but in all honesty, there’s not much to say about her. She’s short (4’10” to be exact), she’s Mexican, she’s Catholic, and she will hit you with a wooden spoon if you piss her off. There is something way more important we need to talk about people…… and that is your Blogathon attire.
I know it’s Austin and we’re all weird and casual or whatever, but I have standards people. And I would hope that you can abide by my three simple guidelines.
1- Keep it cool. I don’t care how cold you normally get in offices; wear something cool. The rooms can get a little warm with so many bodies and machines packed into one small space. So ditch the jeans and sweaters and go for shorts or skirts or dresses and short sleeves. And don’t forget deodorant! No one wants to be the stinky person.
2- Be camera ready. People take tons of pictures at Blogathon. We have roving photographers, we have Q taking random video, and even the attendees like to snap pics to commemorate the awesome day. So brush your hair, wipe the sleep our of your eyes and be prepared to smile…… a lot!
3- Show some flair! I know, it’s a Saturday and you are getting there relatively early. But your normal Saturday “loaf around the house” clothes just won’t cut it. You are going to be hanging with cool people, hearing cool stuff and possibly ending up in a ton of pictures; maybe reach past your typical Saturday morning old, faded, t-shirt and go for something fun and colorful. I’m just sayin…….
In the grand scheme of things, I think these are pretty reasonable guidelines. That being said, no matter what you wear, I will be excited to see you at Blogathon!
