Many of us who blog are spending quite a bit of time right about now planning and thinking about the BlogHer conference coming up in August.
I remember the first year I went some incredible, incredible things happened. I learned that there are amazing souls in the world, and I learned that each conference is what YOU make it. I would link to all those things, but they are among the 200 posts deleted after the incident. You remember that, right??
I am so thrilled that I am attending this year’s conference, and was honored to be asked to participate in a Room of Your Own proposal. Let me take a minute to explain.
Conferences consist of sponsors (who provide amazing meals, gifts, and other support for the BlogHer organization) speakers, volunteers, organizers and panels that facilitate and initiate discussions. (That's not all, but my mind is a blur right about now.)
Each conference is geared towards meeting the needs of its attendees. The best way to do that, is to have proposals “put out there” to the general public, and see which ones would be well attended.
Here’s where I come in.
The amazing Stacey from anymommy called me and asked if I would be interested in participating on a panel for a session on creative writing.
Would I? WOULD I?????????
I felt like the girl who got asked to the prom by the best looking guy in town. “Cept she’s a girl.
I am devoted to the craft of writing, and am pinching myself each and every day that this audience is kind, grateful, patient, supportive and ha a GREAT sense of humor. (And a great sense of honor, of which I am also grateful.)
So, if you would like to attend a session facilitated by yours truly, anymommy and the talented Bon of cribcronicles, then click here and go to Post Process, from creative spark to blog post, by anymommy. All you have to do is say you’ll attend!!
And while you’re there, There are several others I highly recommend!! Scary Mommy, Anissa, Lucretia and Tech Savvy Mom all come to mind!!!! This is our conference, and we decide what we listen to and who we learn with. Make your choices!
And now, I have to go the gym. Frank was in rare form today, and I have to lift about a thousand pounds before I can even talk about it.
(The good news? I still love him.)
