well, actually I can't answer that question for you.   But maybe I can entice you.

If you go to yearlykos, you might get to meet all kinds of interesting people.   Some of them will be blog celebrities.  Some of them will be real celebrities.   You might be able to have your picture taken with them.  They might be able to have their pictures taken with you.

Come along and see some examples of what I experienced in Las Vegas last year.

WARNING - VERY PICTURE INTENSIVE

How about Joe Trippi?

later she roped me into going to dinner at the Bellagio, where I was in the presence of blogosphere luminaries - among those in attendance were Glenn Greenwald, Jane Hamsher and Murray Waas -

and we even kept our inner bloggers in line, as you can see in this picture with Pastor Dan:

yearlykos is about the people, the chance to get to know those whom you've read, and others who have read you (if you post).  It was a chance to make new friendships, learn one heck of a lot, and deepen ties with some we already new.

I obviously had fun, but these pictures do not come close to showing how much.  They barely scratch the surface of my memories. That is why I am going again.  I do hope I see y'all there?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
