Just got back from the Sunstone Symposium!

I had some amazing adventures that I'll be telling you about soon!!! Here's a first taste:

My session (Blogging and Stereotypes panel) was live(ish) blogged here. (I'm listed under my real name: Carol.)

I met tons of fantastic people, many of whom I'd already (virtually) met: most of Zelophehad’s Daughters, some cool bloggers from The Exponent (though, sadly, Jana couldn't make it), Kevin Barney, many of the feminist Mormon housewives, BiV, Green Mormon Architect, Mr. FOB, Foxy J, Holly, Christopher Smith, Robert Raleigh (can I link to your blog?), Craig, Angry Young Woman, C, Markii, Ardis, plus some folks from other big blogs (such as Kaimi, linked above, and my brother).

p.s. to the folks at the Wednesday night Outer Blogness party: can I post the pics?


Christopher Smith said...

And glad to meet you I was, Carol!

C. L. Hanson said...

Thanks Chris!!!

I was really glad to meet you too!

Craig said...

But of course you may!

great to meet you irl.

you may not believe me but i'm a bit shy when it comes to meeting new folks and very intimidated by blog royalty--you are blog royalty in my book.

maybe next time i'll be more comfortable when i meet you.


ps thanks for letting me be on the mommy blog panel. i was way out of my league but it was a good experience for me.

Hey Craig!!!

Cool -- coming up soon. :D

Thanks MFranti!!!

That's funny -- I was thinking how much I appreciated that you (one of the cool kids) wanted to be on the panel.

It was great meeting you irl! I was interested to hear about the work you do behind the scenes (sending people personal messages when they need extra help) that I wasn't aware of. I do some of the same thing for less-believing community.
