BlogHer 2010 Pre-Conference Talk? Already?

by Susan

Can you believe it’s June already?

Our weather around here hasn’t been acting like it, but summer is pretty much here.

So what does that mean for us moms? Well, besides scrambling to find ways to entertain our children, for many blogging moms, the onset of summer also means talk of BlogHer heats up.

Yes, a couple thousand blogging chicks are getting excited to hit New York City for BlogHer 2010 in August. And that means Twitter, Facebook and blog after blog after blog are going to be filled with pre-conference excitement.

Like last year BlogHer 2010 sold out months in advance and left many women wishing they’d bought a ticket earlier.

(Wanna know a secret? Janice and I actually procrastinated on buying our own tickets and we landed on the wait list. But thankfully, spots eventually opened up and we’ve got our tickets secured.)

But whether you’re not going because you didn’t get a ticket in time, or it’s not in your budget or you’ve got babies that can’t be left behind, all the BlogHer conference talk can sometimes turn many blogging mamas green with envy.

And we totally get that.

Cheeseburgher PartyBlogHer and other blogging conferences are tons of fun to attend and missing out can be a drag.

But we really want to help you all enjoy the BlogHer scene virtually.

The best part of being at BlogHer is definitely creating stronger friendships with fellow bloggers and while doing that in person is such a treat, remember that what we all have in common is the love for BLOGGING. Yes, the good old virtual friend making sport of blogging.

So this year if you’re not booked to be in New York for BlogHer 2010, don’t let that keep you out of the BlogHer buzz. Join in virtually!

We’ll be there again with video cameras and we’ll bring you interviews and footage of all the excitement.

So to get us going for BlogHer 2010, we’ve saved a stack of video interviews we shot at BlogHer 2009.

In the following interview, Janice and I chatted with our great friend Audrey from Mom Generations. Watch the video to find out what we have in common with Audrey!

(And remember to follow Audrey on Twitter @audreymcclellan.)

We are so excited to see Audrey and many of our other blogging friends this August at BlogHer. We really hope you’ll be there too… but hey, if you can’t be there in person, remember, you’re still going to enjoy it with us.

So tell us… will you be live with us in New York for BlogHer 2010 or will you join the fun with us virtually?

I will be there live, speaking at the conference about being a Change Agent and a mom, and trying to inspire others to do the same. I’ll also be trying to spread the word about why Nestle, one of the most boycotted companies in the world, isn’t an appropriate sponsor for an event like BlogHer.

I will be there live and I can’t wait to see you both. Still hard to believe it’s only 2 months away.

I will be there virtually, which really stinks because I will literally be 1 hour away. We are moving to long island this month.

I’m looking forward to seeing you again Susan! I’m so excited to get to be in New York, even though, I’ll probably spend the entire time in the hotel.

I won’t be attending this year (it’s too tough on my pocketbook…and my heart – I don’t like being away from my little girls). Maybe next year when BlogHer is in Phoenix {I hope, I hope}. ;)

Yay! I’m so happy I get to say hello to both again! I’ll be brining my babe’s with me (I know, I’m crazy) and they already asked me if Olivia will be there! (I guess they really had a great time in Disney, huh?) Let the countdown begin…

After changing plans twice regarding the conference, I am going to be at BlogHer again this year. I am excited to be going again this year.
