I’ve just returned from the first-ever Blogfest, too frugal to bring my computer and pay the wireless fee – too forgetful to come up with my blogging password (it’s preprogrammed into my laptop). What kind of future is there for a 28-year-old amnesiac? But I digress.
First things first. The focus of Hugh’s show was on Terri Schiavo. Are you frustrated as I am about this? I will continue to blog on the subject… trust me. But one way you can make your voice heard is at Citizen Link, hosted by Focus on the Family. Tell the Republican Florida state senators who turned their backs on evil to reverse their course of action. Tell the United States Congress to put aside procedural and partisan bickering and do something important: like saving an innocent woman’s life from court-ordered starvation!
Thanks to Colorado Mills Borders for graciously hosting the event, to 710 KNUS for treating us like VIPs, and to Tucanos Brazilian Grill for feeding us. If you’ve never been to Tucanos, you’re missing a terrific dining experience. An all-you-can-eat extravaganza where nothing that touches the tastebuds disappoints. Bring an appetite, and come home satisfied!
Hugh didn’t have nearly the exhausting book-signing experience he had during his previous time in Denver last July. He was out of Borders by 9:15 and left noone disappointed. There are many of us out here blogging who are truly indebted to his passion, ambition, insights, and experience. Thanks, Hugh!
The most fun of Blogfest was hanging out with the blogging friends I already know and meeting many more who I am now glad to know. So, hopefully I’ll leave nobody out, but here in no particular order is the list of all the bloggers I encountered this evening –
From the Rocky Mountain Alliance:
And the others (again in no particular order):
I hope I didn’t forget anyone! Many of the above live-blogged the event, but they’re all worth checking out if you haven’t looked at them before.
I’m impressed with the crop of center-right blogging talent in the Denver metro area and am sure that many more will take the plunge into this wonderful avocation after their experience tonight at Blogfest. Not altogether a bad idea, I say. Let’s do it again some time.
Update: A blogger mistakenly overlooked… Steve of A Muse’s Chatter. Thanks for the reminder, Steve!
