BlogHer 2010 Campaign

No, I'm not at BlogHer.

I would have told you.

A kajillion times.

Just home, doing the normal stuff.

Normal stuff. Like normal conversations that include stuff like this...

Hubby: So how many times did the Fed Ex guy come today so far?

Me: Just twice today. (not looking up from the computer)

DQ: Product review or contest win?

Hubby(to the kids) : Shh...mommy's "working"

The Kids(to daddy) : No, mommy's crying because she didn't go to BlogHer!

Okay that last one isn't true, completely.

I'm
so excited for all my blog-pals that are in Chicago living it up!

2010 is
my year!

Nevermind that I thought
this year was my year, but really, 2010 is my year.

I've come up with a motto, and it rhymes!

The Mom Jen in Two Thousand Ten
BlogHer, BlogHer, YEAH!

Or something like that.

I'm still working on the details and the dance moves and leg kick.

It's kinda a campaign slash cheer.

I kinda liked...
I AM BLOGGER, Hear me ROAR!

But that was kinda feminist/cavewoman-speak, so probably not.

Hmm...

Okay, anyway, next year is MY year.

Who's with me?

**UPDATE: It's in New York City next year!!!*

  12. AmyG said...

    I hope you get there next year!!

  13. Paige Orloff said...

    I am so with you. I've spent all week Twittering with lovely women who were BlogHer bound, and I'm just trying not to be bitter...home, alone, err, with my kids, wishing I was laughing with a bunch of sister-blogger-fabulistas. NEXT YEAR!

  14. Kay said...

    I'm with you 110%. Now, if I could just convince the husband. Any tips on that???

  15. Tenakim said...

    seriously-here right now and just heard the announcement that it is in NEW YORK aug 5-7... so get ready! This will have to be a long talk with the husband and he's always wanted to go to New York- so we amyhave to make a trip out of it and he can spend convention time visiting boring history museums! LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU- you'd be a rock star here- so start gathering sponsors!

  16. Shana said...

    I would love to go. Maybe we can win the lottery before then and be able to afford it...lol. Or not you know. We will see what happens. i am new so didn't really know much about it.

  17. Following Him said...

    Hmmm...I am thinking that I may be going too! SO EXCITED!!!

    Stopping by from The Mommy Files with all the other non-attendees.

    NYC is great news! I have a very strong feeling that hubby will be along for the trip.

    I can't wait!

  20. Swirl Girl said...

    I'm not there either - and it's just as well. I'd be all 'the wallflower' anyway.

  21. parentingBYdummies said...

    So desperate to go to Blogher 2010 and so over hearing about all the fun everyone is having @ Blogher right now on Twitter. Glad to hear it's in NY b/c I can totally drive there from MD. Maybe I'll even take Hubby and make a whole trip outta it. No, that would be silly b/c he is such a blog party pooper. BFF all the way! Hope to see you there:)

  22. Jamie said...

    New York I would love to go - I sort of doubt it though.... I hope you do though - too exciting!!

  23. Krystal said...

    would so be there with you only getting my hubs to agree would be a challenge - i'd have to let him know i blog first though and that is an argument i'd like to avoid

  24. Jenn said...

    I am so going in 2010 !
    Since my name is Jenn, I am stealing/ borrowing your cheer. lol...

  25. Merrie said...

    I'm sorry you didn't make it this year -- I thought you were going! Can we seriously talk about traveling to NY next year together? I would be amazing, and with two incomes now I can actually consider it!

  26. Michelle said...

    NYC, awesome! I am about 3 hours away, makes it even easier. I was telling hubby about BlogHer last night and he kind of laughed and said I am not serious enough blogger yet but a lot can change in a year, right?

  27. April said...

    me, meeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! i didn't realize how bummed i'd be to miss out :-/

  28. Evolving Mommy Catherine said...

    I am so in! Catherine kind of rhymes with ten, right? NYC, um hello who wouldn't want to go?!!!

  29. irreverentmommy said...

    I just stumbled here somehow - glad I did!

    I would totally dust off my pom poms (well, I didn't actually have pom poms, but I'd totally buy some) to do a cheer with you!!

    I registered for 2010 this morning! Yay! I'm new to blogging, but it sounds like way too much fun (debautchery) to pass up!

  30. Jennifer-EightyMPHMom said...

    I am SO there with you!! I JUST HAVE TO BE THERE NEXT YEAR! I think it's really neat that it will be in NYC - how fun.

    Your conversations with your family sound very much like conversations in my home LOL.

  31. Martha in PA said...

    NYC.. that's close to home. Maybe by then I will be worthy!

  32. Bill and Lorie Shewbridge said...

    Just stoping by from Shannon's blog to congratulate you on being the FB from Friday... (I'm a little late). I love your pictures, the kids are adorable - there is nothing better than a good water balloon fight.... ur.... game.
    Hope the rest of your family's summer is wonderful!

  33. Angie Seaman said...

    Count me in as well. I shou;d've gone this year because I reside in Indiana full time and it would have only been a three hour drive to Chicago. However, we spend our Summers in FL so I wasn't in Indy for that measely three hour drive. (can you see me kicking myself?) However, I'm in next year. In like flynn fo' sho'! I say we make a big party of it. So fun!

    PS...Just found your blog today via someone else's. As a photographer, I love to see tons of colorful images on other peoples blogs as well. Keep up the great work!

    Blessings, Angie Seaman

    You had better come next year. You were missed.

    In the meantime lets have a playdate or 10 :)

  38. Managed Chaos said...

    Reading about everyone's Blogher 09 experience definitely makes me want to attend next year...now just to convince my husband...

  39. Mrs4444 said...

    I really missed you! I'm in for 2010!!

  40. Terri said...

    I just blogged about this and wondered where it was going to be next year. I have been blogging for over four years and have never been to BlogHer. I'm starting to lean that way though and NYC, what could be a better location! maybe, just maybe....

  41. Tasha said...

    I hear ya. I had to hear about it at work ALLLLL month long- and they didn't even offer to send the CMs. *sniff*

    I'm with you for next year.

  42. Lolli said...

    OK--I know this is old and all, but I just had to say--I hope you will make it in 2010, because I just found out that I will be there! Yay!
