Believe it or not but I've been blogging on and off for just over 3 years now and I have NOT attended one blogging conference, not a one! I'm thinking it might be just a bit nuts for my very first conference to be the biggest blogging conference in one of the biggest cities. But you've gotta start somewhere at sometime, right?
Since I came up with the idea for The Decorating Dork, I really feel I've found my "niche." No.. I would call it my passion. Listen, I don't claim to be an expert in the decorating, crafting or d.i.y-ing fields, I just LOVE it!
I figured this is actually the most enthusiastic I've been about blogging in a very long time, so why not just get over my fears and go for it. What's the worst that could happen? I could sit at a table by myself. I could eat and drink by myself. I could feel all the other bloggers looking at me and think "who the hell is she and why is she here?" But on the other hand, I COULD make some great friends, make some great connections and learn about how to make myself and blog the best it can be!
I am excited, scared out of my wits, but EXCITED!
Are you going to BlogHer? If so I would love to check out your blog and meet you in August. I would also love some advise from any blogging conference veterans.
See ya there....
