Gearing Up for Blogher 2012!

I've been to journalism conferences in the past.  But, I never thought in a million years that I'd attend one for bloggers.  I'm so pumped about Blogher 2012!  It's in New York, which makes attending super convenient.  It'll be a long commute, but at least I won't have to hop on a plane or book a hotel room.  After leaving Princess for our Vegas trip, I'm not sure if I can do it again.  I could bring her with me, but I don't want to torture her.  Hey, I remember being a kid!  Princess would be much better off hangin' with daddy than listening to boring speeches all day.

Now that Blogher is two weeks away, I don't even know how to prepare.  I feel like a fish out of water.  Even though I've been blogging for a little over a year, I still feel like a newbie.  I've participated in a couple of blogger webinars before, but I it's not the same.

Being at Blogher in flesh means that I can actually look people in the eyes and shake their hand.  Rather than have a typed out conversation via twitter or Facebook, we can chat in person.  So far, I've met a lot of great people through blogging.  My hubby jokingly refer to them as my "side pieces" or my "jump offs." But I like to think of them as my cyber buddies.

Now I'm hoping to connect with my web buds at Blogher.  While I'm there, I want to learn a bit more about blogging and how to expand the Weather Anchor Mama brand.  There is so much on the agenda this year and I'm excited.

I'm so looking forward to the interview with Martha Stewart.  There's also a panel featuring CNN anchor, Soledad Obrien.  Katie Couric is scheduled to speak as well.  There are a plethora of activities and parties I want in on too.  My head is spinning trying to figure out which ones to attend.  I'll be working hard at narrowing things down in these next couple of weeks.

First thing on my list is getting my business cards ready.  I made them up myself in Photoshop.  What do ya think?


This bad boy is the key to networking at Blogher.  Have you ever been?  Are you going this year?  Please share your tips!

If you're gonna be there and want to hang, hit me up!

Even though I've never been particularly interested in blogging conferences, I certainly would have signed up, had I known it was going to be in New York! Really kicking myself now lol. Maybe next time. :)

P.S.
Loved the pics of Princess in the sprinkler!

I'm so sad I won't be there but I'm so happy for you. You're going to have a blast and learn a lot!

Sounds exciting! I think it's amazing that ten years ago Mommy Bloggers were an unknown phenomenon, and now they're having conferences!

Hi from the Saturday Sharefest!

It's my first time going to BlogHer as well! I'm a bit overwhelmed, but I plan on just taking it easy and having a good time.

Your cards look great! Have fun!
