So... Who's Thinking About It?

  • I'vm strongly considering going, though I'm still not sure if I can afford to go to the conference itself. Maybe just the cocktail parties! I'll be down in SF during that time, regardless (can't pass up the opportunity!). Will anyone join me? Maybe we can have a Work It, Mom meetup?!

  • I am. Intimidated by a number of things: the logistics -- passport, flights, time off etc; the expense (see flights, above), a few other things. but definitely thinking about it. Also wondering if I mightn't be wiser to wait till next year, when it will be on THIS side of the continent! But very, very interested.

  • wait - it's coming to THIS SIDE in 2009? oh so excited! i can't rationalize going to SF but i could soooo rationalize just about anything up and down the east coast ;)

  • It's my understanding that the plan is to alternate sides. Two years ago San Jose (right?) (San something!), last year Chicago, this year SF, next year back here. And there are one-day mini BlogHers planned this fall in Boston, Atlanta, and a few other spots, so there's always that "taster" experience for this year!

  • I am hoping to be able to do it, too. I am (newly) working as an Editor at BlogHer Ads and am really impressed by the company. Everyone is really supportive and just...refreshing, I guess. This would be my first time. I think it is a little bit intimidating, maybe, but also a chance to get to know others like us who are excited about the opportunity to meet other mommy bloggers!

  • I'm going. This will be my 3rd year. Wouldn't miss it.

    BTW, if the conference fees are a little hard for you to reach, think about volunteering. I did that last year. It was fun, I met a lot of people, and my entrance was paid! It's worth it.

  • I want to go... however its unlikely I will make it this year as it looks to coincide with my hubby's next Asia trip. Since I am on the West Coast... this year would be easier (and less expensive) to pull off, but... I am planning on 2009.
  • You know, I tried to reach someone about volunteering, but I got no reply. I really can't afford to go now (we've had setbacks), but I may be able to make it to a cocktail party. We'll see.
