My Cards, My Shoes and a Big Girl Pill … BlogHer ’08, Here I Come!

I was up late last night reading the agenda for the BlogHer '08 Conference this weekend in San Francisco. There’s a great deal of information, guides and helpful post to get you prepared and gassed to go. And I must admit I am … excited to go. Excited and a little anxious.

I’m used to having people over Wifey’s House, and I’m no stranger to conferences and networking events, but still, there’s something different about preparing to go to the largest women’s blogging conference when you’ve fallen in love with blogging, still consider yourself a newbie, and don’t know ONE person attending. Yikes.

After reading a ton of welcoming advice from previous BlogHer attendees, my nerves chilled out and the excitement kicked in. I pulled out my business cards, a cute pair of shoes and took a big girl pill. Sometimes you just got to suck it, get yourself out there and enjoy the moment; and that’s exactly what I plan to do.

If you’re attending BlogHer, don’t be shy, please walk up and say hi; and I’ll make sure to do the same. I haven’t mapped out my outfits yet, but I’ll be the one in the cute red shoes.

Winks & Smiles,

Cute shoes! I'm not going, unfortunately. Four kids (one who is still nursing) and a hubby who works long hours; yeah, it's not happening. I sooooo jealous of you two, though! I hope you have a GREAT time! Hugs!!
