The Bloggess – On Video, Yo!

by Susan

I love going to conferences, but the problem is I’m just too busy while I’m there and then even busier when I get home. So I record all these cool video interviews and then I never even have time to upload and publish them.

Like get this…

For the third time in a row, The Bloggess — YES, Jenny! — grants 5 Minutes for Mom the honor of a video interview and we take forever to publish it.

We’re hopeless — as my mother would say. (LOL… True story… but don’t feel too badly for us… she does love us. Really!)

Well, we are hopelessly spread too thin that is for sure.

Anyway, back to The Bloggess

So, as Janice and I have told you before, one of our guilty pleasures is laughing along with Jenny, The Bloggess.

Whenever we write about Jenny, we try to warn you that Jenny is not for everyone. Her blog contains profanity and bizarre irreverence and does offend some people.

If you’ve met Jenny in real life, you’re less likely to be offended by her blog as she is super sweet and you can’t really imagine her meaning to be rude… She defies explanation.

This video interview will give you a taste of how sweet she is in real life. Listen as Jenny explains why she was wearing a crown during the Mom 2.0 Summit 2010.

If you recognize the voice behind the camera… that is Esther from Faint Star Lite and She Posts shooting the video.

The Bloggess Has A Question For YOU!

Jenny has a fabulously fun question for you all and you can record your answer over at Say It Face To Face.

She’s wondering if you were a vampire…

The Bloggess

Please help us thank Jenny for joining us on camera… leave her a video reply at Say It Face To Face.

You can follow Jenny on Twitter @TheBloggess and read her column Good Mom/Bad Mom on the Houston Chronicle.

Why am I always blinking so hard in these videos? I think I’ve developed a nervous tic.

So funny… I was wondering if you were wearing contact lenses that were bothering you?

Well she’s every bit as sweet as she is irreverent. That kinda mix makes me happy. Both of ya = dolls!


4 Susan April 23, 2010 at 5:29 pm

Yes, she’s a bizarre but fun mix of sweetness and irreverence.

I believe that behind the scenes, there was a secret plot to overpower The Blogess and steal her tiara. If you listen closely, you can hear the whispered agenda being agreed upon by several Unseen Nefarious Characters.

Had it NOT been for the rolling of the camera which would surely have caught the deed on tape, a foul event no doubt would have occurred. Because, that is one darn covet-worthy piece o’ hair bling.

Very fun to watch!

Fascinating insights Lori! — I hadn’t thought of that. :)


7 Esther Crawford April 25, 2010 at 12:45 am

Jenny is a rare gem. :)

I loooove Jenny! She makes me laugh all the time and I especially love her writing over at Eden Fantasys’ SexIs.

I absolutely love her! I live in the same city (Houston), and I’m always secretly hoping I run into her. Of course, I’d be struck with blogger-envy and would be the biggest nerd ever, but . . . hey . . . I could say I’d met The Bloggess.
