So . . . since BlogHer 2011 is in San Diego it would be foolish of me not to attend. I am going with few expectations beyond meeting people in person that I know through the blogosphere. I am not going to learn how to "monetize" my blog. I would love to be paid for my writing at some point, but not for this blog; I love the community and the freedom to write whatever and whenever I want. Plus, I'm a terrible salesperson.
In addition, I can barely remember to pick winners for the giveaways I host. Which reminds me . . . the winner of the E-Mealz.com giveaway is . . .

Back to BlogHer: My plans are somewhat loose--I haven't even looked at the schedule--but I do have the important things penciled in.
- Lunch on Thursday with my dear friend, JCK from Motherscribe. This will make our third "in real life" meeting. As an added bonus, I'm rooming with her Saturday night in her hotel room. I can't wait.
- Dinner on Thursday night with one of the smartest bloggers I know (and her equally smart daughter; her husband is coming too, but I have no idea how smart he is!), Magpie Musing.
- Friday night Suzy Soro from Hollywood: Where Hot Comes to Die is going to spend the night here (she will sleep in the very same bed BOSSY slept in). Suzy and I are two people that pretty much have nothing, lifestyle-wise, in common, and yet we get on terrifically. I'm pretty sure that hanging out with Suzy is going to mean I get to meet Tanis from Attack of the Redneck Mommy. And that? Might cause me to swoon.
- Saturday--my in real-life friend Deb of San Diego Momma (who I happened to meet through blogging) has arranged a luncheon which will include several spectacular people including the inimitable VodkaMom. I know, be still my heart.
Those are the plans--the rest remains to be seen, but I assure you I will keep you posted and report back. If any of you are planning to be there, please let me know so we can be sure to meet.
BlogHer is next weekend--this weekend is the Water Polo Junior Olympics; Mr. Fix-it, Social Butterfly, Peanut and I are heading to Irvine to cheer on Danger Boy and his 18U team. We'll be gone through Tuesday, so posting may be light, nonexistent OR I may have great photos and be dying to share them with you. Who knows?!
