BlogHer Conference August 6th and 7th in New York City

Baby Leone is not the only one drooling.

When I read through this agenda for the 2010 BlogHer conference, I really want to be there.

The conference is supposed to be a lot of fun and an incredible chance to learn about social media and to do some In Real Life Networking. My friend Meagan went last year and had a fabulous time. What’s more, I’m told a lot of bloggers bring their babies.

But Baby Leone, who is three months old today, and I are going to be traveling twice in April for work: once to Chicago, where I’ve been invited to give a talk about writing at Rock Valley College, and the following weekend to New York City, where I’ll be moderating a panel on travel writing. The idea of going back East again feels a bit overwhelming.

That said, I’ve applied for one of the coveted volunteer positions. Getting it is a huge long shot — I’m sure they have hundreds of others who have applied — but if that comes through and the $300 in conference fees, etc. is waived, Leone and I are on that airplane.

    I hope you get to go! They should know to grab a volunteer of your caliber!! Unfortunately, this conference is right in the midst of our high season, so no chance I can go as long as I’m an innkeeper!

    OOoh, I hope you get it! Are you doing travel writing at ASJA? If so, we should get together while we are both in the same city.

    fingers crossed. and am sure it’s cool to bring the baby on board…lots of so-called mommy bloggers in the mix, so it’s likely little-one friendly, yes?
