BlogHer or Bust!

Well, Friends, this is my last post before I head out to BlogHer. Why am I going so early, you ask? Well, I am making this a family vacation as well. The Babes, my Mom, and I will be packing up Mini and heading to New Jersey and New York to visit family. Then I am going to sneak to BlogHer on Saturday. I am so excited and nervous - I don’t even know what to think. So here’s my check list to make sure I all ready:

Tickets – check

Business cards by paper dahlia design co - check

Clothes for me and The Babes – check

Grown-up clothes that will NOT be ruined by macaroni and cheese (that orange sauce is like permanent marker, for Christ’s sake) - check

Snacks, snacks, and snacks – check

Toys/Books/ Entertainment – check

Telling that voice that won’t shut up about the guilt of going to SUCK IT – working on it

Toiletries – check(ish)

My primitive networking skills – check(ish)

Maps – check

My explanation pitch for blogging/BlogHer for some of the family that we are staying with since they don’t get blogging – check(ish) (Suggestions would be greatly appreciated for explaining blogging to a demographic that is not tech savvy).

My computer – no (I am not bringing it so I will be doing my best to check in with you on my phone, otherwise known as The Little Instinct That Could). (I also have learned how to blog with email, so we’ll see how that goes). (Oh, and I also FINALLY learned how to use Twitpic – yea)!

Which brings me to my next point, if you want to get a hold of me, use Twitter or text me. If you need my number, email me, and I will send it to you.

Looking forward to meeting you at The Mouthy Housewives Party on Friday night, seeing you at BlogHer all day Saturday, and then A Green Affair Party and Sparkelcorn Saturday night!

Travel safely!

Don't feel guilty, everyone needs/deserves a break.

Have a fantastic time! I wish I had some ideas on selling the idea of a blog; I had to read them for a while myself before I got it. But I guess to me, they're like a place to publish essays on a variety of topics (depending on what kind of blog you have)without having to rely on the good will of a publisher. Plus, your audience gets to talk back. Everyone wins!
