Conference time is coming…

by Susan

February is a big month for blogging conferences and events — Blissdom, Disney Social Media Moms Celebration and Mom 2.0 — and we’ve got a treat to get you in the mood.

We saved a dozen of our Mom 2.0 Summit 2009 videos and we’re going to release them over the next week.

Now… before I go any further, let me say this…

I know that many of you won’t be attending any of these three upcoming conferences because as we all know it costs cash and that is tight for all of us.

And you may even be getting tired of everyone talking about conferences you wish you could attend, but can’t.

sayitfacetoface.comBut take heart… the best part of blogging conferences is talking face to face with blogging friends and we’ve got the next best thing… video conversation.

We created Say It Face To Face to help us all have meaningful conversations and network face to face throughout the year. You can simply turn on your video camera or web cam and join the conversation.

During the Mom 2.0 Summit 2009, Janice had a fabulous chat with Catherine Connors from Her Bad Mother about the inspiration behind her blog’s name.

Are you planning to attend any conferences this year?

Janice is going to Blissdom, I’m going to Mom 2.0 and we’re both going to the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. Also we both plan to attend BlogHer in the summer.

Let us know if you’re attending any of these events.

Talk soon,
Susan, co-founder of 5 Minutes for Mom.

Hey, did you know Janice and I also own two online stores: Pedal Cars and Retro Collectibles and A Rocking Horse To Love.

I’m hoping to be at BlogHer this summer if I can swing it! :)

I will be at BlissDom!! It’s my first conference and I’m ecstatic! Mom 2.0 is in my home state, but I doubt I’ll be able to make it so soon after BlissDom… Maybe next year?

I will be at the Disney Social Media Moms Conference and hope to make it to BlogHer

I’ll be at the Disney Social Media Moms. I was hoping to go to BlogHer this year, since I don’t have to fly, but our summer/family visiting/daughter’s camp schedule is not really cooperating with that!

Aaaaa! I’m on the Disney moms waiting list. It sure would be great to go. Now I know if I wanna go somewhere, make it *extremely plain* to the husband so he doesn’t just think I’m only sorta mildly maybe chatting about going somewhere related to some online writing thingy …. what were you saying, honey?

I’ll be at Mom 2.0 and am hoping to make it to BlogHer….after all, it’s in NEW YORK!!!

I wish I could afford to go to one of these conferences! They sound like so much fun!


9 Night Owl Mama January 27, 2010 at 10:45 pm

I’m hoping and praying to make it to BLogher this yr. I’ve always dreamed of going to New York and I just might get there if I can get a Sponsor or two lined up

12 Mikki January 28, 2010 at 12:09 pm

Hey Susan~
I’ll be going to the Disney Social Media conference! I’m so excited!! Can’t wait to FINALLY meet you two!!


13 Shannon (The Mommy-Files) January 28, 2010 at 1:33 pm

I’m planning on going to BlogHer and am searching for sponsors. I have 1 sponsor so far – Johnsonvilled Sausage – who paid for my conference ticket. I would have loved to go to Blissdom, but just can’t afford it. I’m not sure how or if we’ll be able to afford BlogHer. :( Keeping my fingers crossed. :)

Hi Susan,

If everything goes as planned I’ll be attending my first conference in Feb. – Mom Summit.


15 Lorie Shewbridge February 4, 2010 at 9:03 am

I’ll be at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration – it’s my first conference… I am so excited!!
I live right here in the area, and I am sorry to report that the weather doesn’t seem like it will be very cooperative: cold and rainy.
Let’s all cross our fingers that it changes before next week. :-)

Hey Ladies! All of these events looks great! I was wondering if anyone could send me a list of popular “mommy blogs” so I can get reading. Anything you all suggest would be absolutely great! Thanks for the help :)
