Yesterday, I woke early and had a few moments to myself. I actually turned on a “real” computer (as opposed to squinting my eyes at the tiny iPhone screen) and discovered (much to my dismay) that it is June. Almost the end of June. I glanced over my writings to see I still have yet to finish my Christmas post and a couple other dozen from nearly 7 months ago. I skimmed through my emails and other long-saved reading materials and it hit me….
BlogHer ‘11 is in weeks. Not months. Weeks. Despite my greatest efforts in manifestation techniques, the money never appeared for me to purchase a ticket. I am disappointed. It has long been my dream to attend BlogHer. Until I heard it was coming to my hometown, I never thought it would be more than a dream. But here we are, six weeks from the BlogHer ’11 no-travel-required version and I have no ticket.
Sad as it is, that is not what this post is about. It’s about you. Are you attending BlogHer???? Because seriously people, the conference is mere miles from my front door and I want the chance to meet you all! I have a ticket to the Clever Girls Collective I’m With The Brand party and I am sure I will be attending some SDMomfia events.
I could list (and link) to all the wonderful bloggers I have read throughout the years that I feel I simply must meet. But that could take days. One I will include is the lovely lady who got me started, just by setting such a great example: BusyMom. Without her, I would never have taken the step from lurking-land into the blogging realm. I simply must see her in person. But there are so many others also!
So, are you attending BlogHer ’11 in San Diego? Please leave a comment letting me know and we can start planning secret rendezvous and magical meetings. I am willing to crash any party and travel any lengths. I may not attend the conference, but I want to meet you!
PS: I haven’t given up all hope. On my list of things to do today is to enter this contest, but that would actual require a second post and I don’t exactly have a great track record for posts lately!
