In four days I will be in Chicago.
To say I am excited would be an understatement of epic proportions.
While I am looking forward to attending the BlogHer Conference, I would be lying if I said that’s my only reason for going. I was on the fence about attending after last year but once they announced the location, I was sold. I haven’t been to Chicago since I was ten which basically means I have never been since I was ten in 1983. Besides, we didn’t even sightsee- we just hung out with relatives and the only real memory I have from it is that my second cousin got his mouth washed out with soap and he liked it. (HE LIKED IT.)
Not only is Chicago a fantastically cool city but it’s also the home of some of my favorite bloggers. Bloggers that I’ve been reading for a long time now and am insanely excited to meet in person. (I am looking at you Kapgar, Nilsa, Diane, Kim and Tori.) Not only that but some of my old blogging pals will be in town and I’m happy to get to spend more time with them. The list of people I am excited to see again or meet for the first time is way too long. I will spare you because I am nice like that. Add to that the fact that I am rooming with none other than Kerrianne and Angella and you can bet your sweet ass I’m going to have an epic good time. I’m 98% certain we will be busting out with some Boom Boom Pow grooves in our hotel room.
The only thing concerning me now is not what I am going to wear or what sessions I am going to attend but how in the hell I am going to fit in the conference activities AND all the sightseeing I want to do AND spend time with all the super awesome bloggers. I really should have stayed more than one extra day. More like an extra week. If only I was made of money. And didn’t have two jobs.
I realize that a lot of non-attendees get sick of hearing about BlogHer this and BlogHer that so I will TRY to not tweet my fingers off at the conference. I don’t have a lap top so I won’t be posting. (You’re welcome.) BUT, if you’re going to BlogHer or are in Chicago, let me know in the comments so I can look for you and possibly accost you with a big hug. I’m friendly like that.
