BlogHer, the world's biggest social media convention for women, will be held in Chicago this year, and I am thrilled that it will only cost me $48.00 round trip, thank you Amtrak, to get to the conference this year.
That is so freakin' aweSOME.
If I had been smart and thinking (If) I would have taken the money saved from no air fare this year and splurged on a hotel room. Just think of that fantasy; my own hotel room, a pile of People magazines, and a bucket of chicken wings.
But all works out well, I'll be rooming with Dusty from Dusty Earth Mother, Lady Jennie from A Lady in France, and beautiful soul mate Varda of Squashed Bologna. I'll be taking the train up with my good good friend, Jenny, of tranquilamama.
If you find yourself in Chicago, come look for me Friday morning at 10:30 when Erin Margolin and I present "A Room of Your Own: Blogging with Vulnerability." I hope you join us. I'll also be at one of my favorite places, the Serenity Suite -- also known as Time Out for A Breather; on Saturday, from 2 to 3 PM.
I'll be back Sunday, and I'll catch you all up. If you're staying home this year, you can still do BlogHer: Home Style. Follow along, win prizes!
See you soon!
