When I attended CPAC for the first time last year, I had only been blogging about seven weeks and I had only been a fiscal conservative for about five months. A post by Stacy McCain on “How to Get a Million Hits on Your Blog in a Year” led to my writing a post about Little Miss Attila and commenting at her site. She was intrigued and invited me to coffee at CPAC, which gave me the courage to sign up for all three days and attend. Attila also introduced me to Stacy at CPAC and vouched for his character. I am so very grateful to both of them for their kindness and support this past year. And I am looking forward to taking Attila out to dinner to have a nice chat and thank her. Stacy lives closer, so I’ll have the opportunity to buy him a beer another time.
Update, 2/16/2010, Tues.: Holy cow! Obi’s Sister has the most awesome link round-up of official bloggers for CPAC 2010! She was wonderful to me at CPAC last year and it will be a joy to see her again this year and talk heirloom tomatoes.
