The high tide of blog conference season seems to be upon us. Ever since I took blogging more seriously instead of looking at it as just a hobby I wanted to experience what conferences were all about. I met a handful of bloggers in 2010 at a blogger event in TN. That was when I met Lindsay from Laughing Lindsay who I am still very good friends with today. In 2011 I didn't attend any blog conferences. In 2012 I was able to attend Reviewer's Retreat for the first time. 2013 is looking to be a good year for Mama Bee Does. I was able to attend the first ever SoFabCon from Collective Bias a few weeks ago. I'm still working on posts to share on that. While working on writing up about SoFabCon I am also preparing for more conferences. I will be attending Reviewer's Retreat again this year the weekend before my birthday.
I have read many posts on previous BlogHer events. I know there are many different opinions from bloggers. I will do my best to enjoy the experience and make the most of it. I was told by @Lizz_Porter on twitter that you get what you want from BlogHer and not to stress and be flexible in your plans and I hope to do just that. I will be flying to Chicago sometime the Wednesday before the conference and will return home sometime that Sunday. I told my boys I would be going on two more trips this summer and they were kind of bummed but they know we will still have a family summer vacation before they go back to school.
Have you attended BlogHer before? Was it what you hoped or expected? Do you have any helpful advice or tips for a BlogHer newbie? Coming off my high of SoFabCon I'm all ready thinking about what I want to wear and what to pack for BlogHer (I all ready have Reviewer's Retreat planned out).
