Catching The Brass Ring


There are times when you watch from afar and other times when you grab that brass ring and go for it! And that is what I did. When presented with the opportunity to attend the BlogHer conference in New York City next week, I went for it. And while I thought maybe I should save for next year and maybe I’ll go ‘someday’, I decided to put walk into the talk. Stop Wishing, Start Doing!

And so next week I will join a few thousand other bloggers to learn, meet, laugh, cry, walk, talk, smile, schmooze, eat, dance, get up early, stay up late and generally have a great time. Instead of having nearly a year to plan, as many do, I’m living life on the edge and taking the plunge in to the biggest blog conference for women with merely a week notice. Seriously, people have been planning outfits and arranging for parties and events and all kinds of things for months. Me, I’m doing something very NOT ME. Not much wishing, and a lot more doing.

I’m fortunate to be connected with some great women bloggers who have invited me to share a room, attend a few parties and even be a hostess at one of the hottest breakfast tickets in town.  My friend Heather, who is the genius behind Team Inexpensively, is letting me room with her. I will also be a table host at the Bacon, Egg, and Coupon Breakfast along with Renae from Madame Deals, Corrin from Oh hey, What’s Up?, Toni from The Shopping Adventures of Cheapo McFrugalpants, Alicia from Making Time for Mommy, and Melissa from MultiTasking Mama where we will talk about the various aspects of blogging in a round table discussion.

I have had great experiences at the other blog conferences I have attended, Blissdom and Bloggy Bootcamp, and I expect that this one will be no different. I’m looking forward to learning more about blogging and how I can improve not only myself but also my blog. It will also be an opportunity for me to get out and live. To show BabyGirl that mommy has a life outside of taking care of her. Welcome to my Someday #2746!

I’m living vicariously through you, so you better have a great time and fill me in on every. single. detail when you get back. I’ll have lots of wine!

I must have missed this post before you went… but I still want to hear all the juicy details.
