A few weeks ago, I engaged in a #mombizmondays chat where we got talking about conferences...
Who's going to what conference?
Will you blog while you're there?
What social media tools are you going to use?
Are you bringing a laptop?
Then the big question...
Why did you choose the conference that you're going to?
This led me to think about why I'm going to BlogHer'12 and what I hope to get out of it. Of course I want to promote myself as a freelance writer, artist and excellent, quality blogger, but at the heart of it I want to...
I want to meet the people who inspire me to blog like Mrs. Gloves, Jenni From The Blog, and Goober Monkey. I want to have a blast with my roommates Baby Shmizz, Living With Peanut and Never a Dull Moment and tour the sites of NYC.
I want to picnic in Central Park with Shizz on the Thursday, kick up our feet on a rock, and be silly.
I want to go to Tiffany's and treat myself to something for my 30th birthday.
I want to live...and experience every piece of BlogHer that I can. I want to soak it all in, write it all down, and blog about it when I get home and am able to digest the most influential weekend of my professional career.
So...why did you choose BlogHer'12?
