Going to BlogHer '12

I had posted before about wanting to go to BlogHer '11 (especially because it was in San Diego, a city I've never been too and have heard it has the most perfect weather in all of the U.S.), and while that didn't pan out (we were in Ohio that weekend), I now have my sights on BlogHer '12 since it's in NYC (YAAAAY!). I had thought they change locations each year but guess they switch between east and west coast all the time (someone correct me if I'm wrong).

Anyway, there are some exciting developments happening with my blog that will be rolling out by the end of the summer, and my dream of being a WAHM is going to be a reality at last! With these changes and by setting my sights on BlogHer '12 I think I will be in a very solid position when I attend. I have an entire year to prepare!

I did go to the premises of BlogHer '10 which was also in NYC where I met Jenn from Baby Making Machine (I still am someday hoping she shares the pic she took of us and her daughter Lil J!). While I wasn't an attendee, I did get a vibe of the energy of BlogHer, which was very intense, but I could tell I would have fun there!

I came across this video on Sweetney showing the BlogHer '11 Sparklecorn Party, and it looks like the ladies definitely had a good time:

I would share this with Mr. Love Bird, but I know he'd take a look at it and think it was a lesbian party and would start in on the jokes so I wont go there (we recently had a discussion in which he informed me that he believes that at least 50% of Wellesley students are lesbians, let alone bisexual, but that's another post for another day . . .). I also like the fact that there is a HUGE unicorn cake which reminds me of my high school alma mater CSG (also an all-female instituion) since our mascot was the unicorn (something else that Mr. Love Bird loves to crack jokes about: "You mean your mascot was an imaginary creature?!").

OK enough already, lemme go buy my ticket! Anyone else planning on going?


  1. I'm planning on going! And as soon as I get paid next Friday, I want to go but my early bird ticket!!!!

  2. Thanks for sharing the video! Looks like fun! I would love to go, but not able to confirm at this time. I haven't even told my husband about the conferences. And if I show him this video, he will probably just stare at me like what the ? LOL
    I guess time will tell.

  3. I haven't thought about it but NYC is definitely close by! Maybe something to think about.

  4. Have a great and productive time! Maybe if there's a local to NYC BlogHer event in the near future we can make it. Travel safely!
