Attending BlogHer from Afar

So for my blogging friends, many of you are going to BlogHer very soon!  I am so excited for all of you and I am going to be watching and following like an Olympic fan.

So in order to make my absence as painless as possible I am doing a few things to help me live vicariously through conferees.  I am also hoping to be one that wins one of the awesome swagbags that lucky BlogHer attendees will receive.  So I have to mention that I am receiving a sweepstakes entry in exchange for this blog post.

Here are some things I will be doing to recreate the experience from the West Coast:

  • Following @BlogHerAtHome on Twitter
  • Following @LaurieWrites on Twitter, since she is now my new BFF and will be blogging from the conference
  • Using the BlogHer Conference App for my iPhone (so I can pretend I have to be somewhere in 10 minutes..)
  • Shopping for some new shoes for the conference because it will be kind of like therapy for me.
  • Commiserating Connecting with other bloggers who will also be on #blogherathome
  • Making hot dogs, black and white cookies, cheesecake and deli sandwiches so I feel like I am in New York
  • If you will be joining me from somewhere other than New York, please let me know in the comments.  If you are from SoCal, come by and have a cookie with me!
