1) I went to the BlogHer ’07 conference last summer in Chicago, and I already knew I wanted to attend the ’08 conference (it’ll be held in San Francisco this time), but I hadn’t made any specific plans. Now I’ve at least set up the hotel room — I’ll be rooming with my fellow BlogHer Contributing Editor, Liz.
When the conference was held in Chicago, I had a friend in the city that I was able to stay with instead of having to pay for a hotel room. That would’ve been nice this time around too, but I admit I’m looking forward to having more opportunities to talk to people outside of the conference itself, since there’s always so much stuff going on during the day. Also, even though I lived in southern California for a year I’ve never been to the northern part of the state, so I’m really looking forward to going there for a visit.
2) Leah thinks I’m an awesome blogger! The best part is, after mutually reading each other’s websites for over three years, we’ll finally be meeting in person in a few weeks when she comes to the DC area for a visit.
