I realize BlogHer is not until August but it’s already on my mind and I’m getting excited and nervous and yes even a little panicky. The talk of parties and party invites are all up and down the BlogHer12 hashtag stream on twitter. I’m trying not to stalk the hashtag but it’s hard not to.
Really, I am in no rush for August to get here as my kids just got out of school and I am hoping to really get to spend some quality time with them. But I am excited. I’ve never been to NYC before. That kinda scares but I know I’ll be among friends. Traveling without my family too is stressing me out just a bit and I’m sure that stress will just increase as time goes by, I’m expecting it.
Then of course there’s my weight gain and the “what will I wear?” question setting in. That happens every time a conference rolls around though. Hoping I won’t make some of the same mistakes I made last BlogHer. Comfortable shoes that have been worn in are a must! Blisters are not fun.
I’m planning on spending more time in the Expo hall and talking with more brand reps. Just thinking about it all can be a little overwhelming but this year I’ll have my new bloggy friends and some dear bloggy friends I’ve know for a while. There are two things I know for sure 1. I’m going to miss my family like crazy, wish they were with me and yes more than likely I will cry at least once and 2. I just know I’ll have a great time with my friends.
