i’m on the edge, of glory.

by @according2kelly on August 23, 2011

it all started with a message that read: SUPER SECRET!!!! i’m looking for extroverts to be part of a top secret BlogHer’11 mission.

super secret?! extroverts needed?! my interest was definitely piqued.

suddenly i found myself on the edge, of glory (literally), & immersed in super-duper-secret-BlogHer’11-flash-mob preparations (officially called mobHer), organized by the always fabulous theresa (rock on mommies) & mary (the mama mary show).

we’re talking virtual dance rehearsals, spontaneous dance parties & lots of extra curricular dance practice – in front of the mirror, in the kitchen, & pretty much anywhere i heard lady gaga.

mobherfast forward one month later. i am at the san diego convention center. the day is friday, august 5th. the time is 12:15pm, & i find myself nervously chatting, as my super-duper-secret is about to be shared (& witnessed) by hundreds of unsuspecting bloggers.

suddenly, off in the distance, i hear the music begin, & i realize the time has come. it’s time for me to live “on the edge, of glory.”

honestly, i couldn’t think of a more appropriate song. because, aren’t we all on “the edge, of glory” after all?!

I was only at BlogHer for Saturday, but I heard about this. I assumed that BlogHer had hired a professional dance troupe to do it (and I wondered who sponsored it). I had no idea that the flashmob was made up of Bloggers! I wish I could have seen it live, but thanks for the video - it looked awesome!

it was definitely awesome. so fun to be apart of. crazy to think i practiced in front of mirror for a month, by myself. i was a little worried, but it all came together perfectly.
