I still can't believe it.

I just have to steal a moment away from our family vacation -- days filled with sun, fun, and tantrums -- to acknowledge that I've been selected as a speaker at the Voices of the Year Community Keynote at Blogher NYC.

To say that I was surprised when I heard the news would be an understatement.

Thank you.

To think that it's all because of this blog's simple design. A design I whipped up myself. (I am not a designer.) I thought about what I wanted and then I used the Typepad knowledge base to figure out just enough CSS to do what I wanted. And then I did it while the baby napped and the older kids watched one episode of Imagination Movers.

I can't wait to see all of you in NYC. I'll be the one freaking out because now I get to speak in front of the entire conference.

It's terrifying.

It's also an honor I wouldn't trade for the world.

Thank you.
