we are both fairly new to blogging so we are SO excited to be attending BlogHer'10. not only to be able to attend such a great conference, but to be able to learn new things, and of course meet people that we follow. i have been reading a ton of posts from BlogHer's past in order to get a feel for it. ya know. being a BlogHer conference virgin and all. i just really wanna get a feel for it. i have heard nothing but great things and now i am even more excited!
and it can only be better because it is in New York. i have never been there and i am just boiling over with excitement because of the location. allbeit really far from me. this Texas girl is looking so forward to the Big Apple. we are planning to go in on Thursday and not leave until late Sunday so that we can spend a little time in the city. i know it is such a totally different scene than we are used to. but all the same it will be exciting.
one thing that i have gotten into is whether or not to seek sponsorship. some people are totally against it and others are sponsorship whores. either way i do not care. i paid for the tickets myself. i will seek sponsorship for the hotel and the other costs associated with going to the conference. i will not accept money from people or brands that i do not support. i will do some advertising for those companies and/or people. but i will not spend the whole conference to the point i can not enjoy anything peddling or pushing something. i have contacted a friend of mine that has a business that i TOTALLY back and support. and hopefully with his support and the support of his partner i can get a little assistance. i am sure i will be peddling on twitter and some other sites too. am i ashamed of this? HELLS NO! i am going to BlogHer'10 and i am totally psyched.
if you want to help out by all means do so. and to all of those that will be there...i look forward to meeting you!!
