BlogHer '10 here we come!

Watch out New York City, you're about to be overrun by thousands of passionate women bloggers! Christine and I are headed to BlogHer '10, THE blogging conference of the year! I can't believe how big this conference is. Several months ago Chris asked me to go with her and I discovered that tickets to BlogHer '10 were already completely sold out! Fortunately, I stumbled upon a few sweepstakes which I entered and I was blessed with an all expense trip from JVC. I know it wouldn't be possible for me to go without them! Read more about my entry here.

I have a whirlwind of emotions - I'm nervous about flying across the country alone (Chris and I, unfortunately, are on separate airlines). I'm sad to be leaving Dustin and my babies for five whole days. And mostly, I'm thrilled to be among some of the greatest bloggers for five days. I've gotten to know a few of them online and I'm excited to finally meet them in person.

Chris has been encouraging me to venture full fledged into the world of blogging for years now. I'm not even there at the conference yet but all the preparations over the last few weeks has ignited a passion within me and I'm excited to see what's in store. I'm honored to be spending five days with my sister as her shadow - okay, maybe I won't be her shadow the entire time, my goal is to learn as much as possible, maybe some of her knowledge will rub off on me. She really knows so much about the virtual world, I admire her tremendously! She was even nominated for a BlogLuxe Award! That's my sister! We have so much planned that I don't know how we are going to fit it all in ~ I hear that we won't sleep much. I still don't think it will all seem real until I'm on the plane in the morning.

    I'm thrilled that you have this opportunity and I'm so looking forward to you and Christine coming home after it's all over and rubbing it off on me!! I hope it's more than you expected it to be and that the "blogging" takes off at lightening speed for you!
