In the world of moms who blog, New York City is the place to be this weekend. It’s BlogHer, baby!
The A-listers, D-listers and every other kind of blogger converges at this conference to …well, everyone has her own agenda. Some go to party. (And parties, there are aplenty.) Others go to meet up with bloggy friends. Lots of bloggers go hoping to get free stuff (aka “swag”), maybe meet a few people, and escape their everyday lives to talk about Twitter, Facebook and WordPress with others who get it.
So for all of the reasons I listed above, plus a few more, I, too, am flying out tomorrow to join the crazy cacophony of blogging ladies in New York. I’ve been looking forward to this for two years (my last BlogHer was in San Francisco, 2008 — last year, I was too busy nursing my newborn son to go).
With two awesome hotel roommates, Mommy Bits’ Shannan and Once a Month Mom’s Tricia, as my BlogHer buddies, I’m psyched for some seriously good times. I love my kids a whole, whole lot — but boy, I sure could use a little time away, just for me. Thanks to Hubs for keeping the home fires burning while I live it up in NYC for a few days!
Meanwhile, I’ll keep you posted on any blog-worthy antics, discoveries or celeb sightings while I’m there.
