I'm sure all of you have realized by now how much I simply hate showing off stuff that our contributors are getting noticed for. And I'm horrible at self-promotion too. *whistles innocently* I guess I'll just have to suck it up... *grins*
- The ACLU is running the Blog of Rights Symposium featuring posts from the nation's top LGBT bloggers. I was honored to be included beside such luminaries as our own Pam Spaulding, Terrance Heath, Donna Rose and Kate Clinton, plus John Aravosis, Jeremy Hooper, Andrew Belonsky, and others.
- Hayden Black, the actor behind Abigail's X-Rated Teen Diary and Goodnight Burbank we recently featured in the Wall Street Journal for his work on the internet shorts. If you're not watching Goodnight Burbank too, you're really missing out; it's absolutely hysterical. I've included a copy of the interview video after the jump. I'll bet most of you didn't know Hayden was British or even what his real name is, did you?
- Waymon Hudson's upcoming California wedding has earned him the nickname "Bridezilla" in a California newspaper. Of course, they didn't lie...
- I'll be participating in the two day Blog Indiana Conference. It's designed to teach bloggers how to make the most of the new(ish) media. This is the first even of it's kind in Indiana and they have some great speakers lined up. I'll be participating in the "Building Community Around Your Blog" panel discussion and leading the "Building and managing a blog community" session.
