it is now at that point in time where it has just been way too long since I blogged. You have heard this before. UGGGGG I don’t like it one bit!
Draven and BellaVendetta are here- and so is Misti Dawn. Draven and BellaVendetta made me cookies…. and I feel bad because, well I don’t really eat cookies anymore these days but I am going to make an exception for these. They smell really good. Fresh cookies = awesome.
Rather than tell you a long story about my week- because well, it was extremely long…. I am just going to share with you a picture of myself eating Sushi at the Xbiz show in Vegas. It was last Thursday- I think that was June 5th.
MAN! I didn’t resize it and I don’t feel like it. Sorry. Just slide the little bar back and forth a bunch and you can get the full effect of this picture…
I had to speak on a panel about Social Networking… basically me and like 5 other people talked about twitter to a bunch of other people in the porn industry. I don’t quite know how to recap the whole experience and do it justice…. but basically, I told a bunch of people how to use social networking to market their porn companies. It seems so odd to me that so many people who own companies- that make a lot more money than mine do, are just so baffled by twitter which is just the easiest and most simple form of social media ever. I answered a bunch of questions and talked about what kind of traffic it pushes to BurningAngel and blah blah blah- it was fun. Someone next to me whose name I don’t remember kept talking over me though and it was kind of annoying. That seems to always happen on panels. People think that I am speaking to them from the point of view from a “porn star” and not a business person, – and then business people will chime in and say things like “well that might work for a porn star but blah blah blah blah” and then I have to chime back and be like NO DUDE, YOU’RE WRONG and it gets very annoying. So then I just revert to my defense mechanism where I start pretending that I am not on a panel and that I am really doing stand up comedy and I start cracking really bad jokes like “twitter gets me so much traffic- it really needs to start it’s own carpool lane” or uh… something like that. I don’t know. All in all though- I kicked ass kinda. In the Q & A section at the end of the panel, lots of people’s questions were directed towards me- and one time the guy next to me tried to interrupt me and the person who asked the question said “I said my question was for Joanna!” and that was kinda cool. I gave him my own little “in yo; face bitch” kind of look and it was pretty cool.
On the other hand, I completely ate shit once again at the Miss Xbiz beauty pageant. I don’t know why I entered! The people at Xbiz just kind of entered me and I thought that was like some kind of wink wink nod nod type thing that meant I was going to win. I was wrong. Remind me to never ever enter this contest again- or any other contest which entails me strutting around on a stage and standing in a bikini next to a bunch of blond girls with fake boobs and lypo-d stomachs. Yes, it might have proved a cool point if I won- but it would be an even cooler point if I just don’t enter- right? So yeah, moral of the story is- I am a decent panel speaker- but I am not a beauty. Le sigh!
