BlogHer 2011!!!

Last year, I anxiously waited on Twitter waiting for the announcement of BlogHer ’10. They announced New York and I was ecstatic. Bought my ticket the first day it went on sale (thank you Johnsonville Sausage)! I had plans to go and was looking forward to it all year long. However, some major life changes happened and BlogHer ’10 in New York was no longer in the cards. I won’t say I wasn’t bummed, because I was. However, I had something to look forward to in 2011.

I was really hoping BlogHer ’11 would be in San Diego. Some were saying it might be in Dallas, Nashville, or other places. I had no idea where it would be. I talked about it with other bloggers (aka Piera, Leslie, Christine, Jenn, Jenn, Andrea, and Sheena) and they were gonna keep in the loop when they found out. This morning, I woke up to my cell phone vibrating with a text message from my dear friend Leslie. It was gonna be in San Diego! Sweet! Road trip is calling my name!!!!

So, I am excited to say that I plan on attending BlogHer ’11 and we bloggers will take San Diego by storm. So, if you’re a company looking to sponsor me, please let me know!

To those at BlogHer in New York, have a blast! Can’t wait to read everyone’s posts! Happy Friday!

    How do you find out the information for the BlogHer’11 and other blog events going on? I guess I’ll be planning on trying to go to San Diego next year. I thought it was always in New York. I’m basically just starting out here. Thanks. πŸ™‚

  7. admin says:

    Hi Becky! Welcome to the blogging world! πŸ™‚ BlogHer is in a different city each year. Last year it was in Chicago (my first time learning about it). This year it’s in New York. Next year it’s gonna be in San Diego. Last year, I waited on Twitter to find out. This year, a few of my blogging friends text messaged me letting me know where it was and I was…to say the least…ecstatic! I learn about now blogging events every time I turn around. There is Type A Moms Conference, Blissdom, jeesh, I can’t remember the other ones. Tons of them though. Good luck in your search and welcome to blogging! πŸ™‚

    I have a blog as well, but I’m only able to update it when big events occur so I can remember them later in my daughter’s life. ☺

    I am a freelance writer and I was wondering if you’d be interested in a writing opportunity I have for moms.
