BlogHer Strong

In four weeks, I'll be Conference Strong.

I'll be idea-open, inspiration-ready, community-bound, and with my people.

If I were the commune living type, I could only be hoeing and raking the carrot patch alongside BlogHer people.

On July 15th, I will be attending my 5th BlogHer conference. For someone who has never been the one to attend conferences, it's an event I can't get used to. The thrill has never worn off and the excitement about going still makes my stomach quake, but not in a too uncomfortable Immodium way.

I will be with the faces behind the words I love. There will be new friends to meet who will feel like I've known them for years. We will all be together speaking the same language, that of loving the internet connection and the world it has opened up for us.

Though everyone attending won't be just like me, we will all be drawn to BlogHer '15 because we are looking for affirmation, cohesiveness, and inspiration.

Our hearts will race at the joy of being with our friends. We'll talk with people in a way that texting, emailing, tweeting, and FB updates can't come close to. We'll look into the eyes of those who have grown into friends and have the opportunity to tell them what they mean to us.

I'll arrive July 15th for my 5th BlogHer conference in a row. I'll come seeking




I'll leave feeling focused, energized, rejuvenated, determined. And less alone.

And when I'm back on that plane flying home, it will be with the best takeaway of all.
The feeling of pride when I say, I am a blogger.
