Some of you may know from my incessant mentions that I am attending BlogHer this week in San Diego. It’s one of the largest blogging conferences of the year bringing together over 3,000 attendees for educational sessions, networking and, of course, parties. I always wanted to attend BlogHer when I was working in the PR field but the chance never came about. Now that I’m on the other side of the fence, being a mom and blogger, I decided this is the year to make it happen.
My dear hubby is graciously braving baby duty for 3 nights and 4 days. Not sure he totally knows what he’s in for but if anything I’ll come back to a man with a greater appreciation for what I do everyday. If you want to follow his sometimes poopy, always hysterical tweets of what life is like without mom, feel free to follow him on Twitter #MomatBlogHer. Of course this will be the longest I will have ever been away from my Little Man so I’m also hoping I don’t have a nervous breakdown…thank God for Skype!
As I prepare for BlogHer I am constantly scouring blogs of conference veterans for helpful tips. Not to mention meeting new friends on Twitter whom I can’t wait to meet in person. Here’s a few blog posts I found helpful, and if you are also attending BlogHer I hope you will too:
