Well I did it... Blogher here I come!

I did it.  I registered for my first blogger conference.  I'm not gonna lie, I'm terrified.  That may sound silly, but I am.  I have all these concerns, like I am not a serious enough blog to go to a blogging conference.  But really, I have been blogging for 6 months now and my blog has grown more than I imagined it would so quickly.  Then there is my fear that I will sit quietly and not know anyone and eat all my meals by myself and go to all these parties and not talk to anyone.  I am going to have to push myself out of my comfort zone.  Blogging is new to me and I really enjoy doing it and the people I have gotten to know.  It is such a supportive community.  PLUS it is in Chicago this year, so I am only a couple hours away.  I felt like for that reason this year was the year.

So whether I'm ready or not.... Blogher here I come!

I look forward to meeting all my wonderful bloggy friends there!



  1. Congratulations! Have a great time. :)

  2. I'm super excited for you Mary! When is the next Blogher? I'm really hoping to monetize my blog enough to pay for Influence or Allume conference attendance next year, though it'll be a pretty big job for me.

  3. I'll eat with you. I am worried about the same things! EEEK!

  4. I want to go too but worry about the same things I'm from Chicago so I know that I would have a place to stay for free. Makes so much sense to go but I'm scared to pull the trigger!

  5. Wow, so glad I came to your site (from SSS). Didn't realize blogher was in Chicago. Will have to check that out. I live there. I know how you feel about being intimidated. The blogging world seems a lot like junior high sometimes. I've been blogging a while (about our three adoptions), but switched to a humor blog in June, and entered the real blogging world, where I was actually trying to get followers. It's hard. But fun!
