BlogHer – Should I or Shouldn’t I?

Top Three Reasons Why BlogHer ’09 appeals to me:

  1. Networking and learning with other bloggers.
  2. Meeting Kerri and Julia (at the minimum).
  3. CHICAGO, my “hometown”.  (Yeah, yeah, grew up in the ‘burbs.)

Top Three Reasons Why BlogHer ’09 does not appeal to me:

  1. Unsure of job/vacation situation
  2. I’m quite shy and actually rather anxious about group situations like this.
  3. Chicago in late July?!?  

Making a decision this weekend in order to take advantage of the early registration fee!

  1. Hi :) If you come, find me and shake my hand, and we will solve number 2 for both of us! I won’t know anyone, but I really want to go.

  2. Late July might not be so bad…and hey, there are ‘friendlies’ in town (like me!). Go for it!

  3. I’m with you – undecided. I don’t know what my job situation will be which is the biggest reason I haven’t committed either way. The group thing is also kind of anxiety-provoking for me. I don’t think the cost would be so bad if I drive, although it is like a 13-hr trip from Philly, but that’s got to be cheaper than flying. I think I’d want a roomie so there’s a matter of that. I’ve never been to Chicago, so that’s appealing, and it can’t possibly be any worse than Philly in July so that part doesn’t bother me. Sooner or later I’ll figure it out I guess.

  4. Yes! Go! And then tell us all about it.

  5. I am almost positive I’ll be there for work again… I’ll probably be able to go to the patientblogger session, but then I’ll have to go to other sessions related to work and meet w/ bloggers and such. But it would be AWESOME to finally meet you. Kerri and Julia are a lot of fun so you’ll have a great time if you go. You’re inside the hotel for most of the hot part of the day so it wouldn’t be too bad, I’d think. If you go, I’ll definitely keep an eye out for you.

  6. I’m selfishly ignoring your list of “Why Not” reasons and sticking with the first list. :) I would LOVE to see you there!!

  7. Amber> Thanks for the comment and encouragement!

    Kathy & Allison> I just haven’t visited the midwest in July since I moved away. (June, once; August, once, but that’s it.)

    Lee Ann> hope you decide to go (if I do – ha). submitted a female sports fan blogging proposal for Room of Her Own.

    Colleen> Still thinking about it.

    Kerri> :P

  8. After the week of meet ups I had I cannot tell you anything but GO GO GO!!!

  9. hmm.. really like it ))
