The benefits of attending a BlogHer conference are many, but one of the very best is this: People "get" your social media obsession. Phones are in hand (or in faces) more often than not, and it's not unusual to nod understandingly when someone says, "Keep talking; I just need to post this picture before I forget my caption." ...more

Get Ready for a Conference: Order Your Business Cards

It is Friday, which means that we are hours away from the weekend. So I'm going to throw something on your to-do list. I know that probably won't make me the most popular woman, but you'll thank me later when you enter the #BlogHer16 conference feeling calm and collected. For the next few weekends, I'm going to suggest one small thing that you can complete some time between Friday and Sunday evening to get ready for #BlogHer16. By the time August rolls around, the only thing you'll have left to do is throw some cute shoes in the suitcase. ...more
No advice, but thanks for the tips, and the reminder. I've been meaning to get my butt in gear ...more

6 Things I Learned From Attending a Lot of BlogHer Conferences

I have been to eight BlogHer conferences. I have gone to them with friends, and I've gone to them alone. I've shared hotel rooms and slept by myself. I've flown, bused, and driven. I've been a speaker and a listener. I've gone into some conferences so excited that I'm chatting with every single person on the plane about where I'm going, and I've gone into others sobbing as I walk through the hotel. In other words, I have done the BlogHer conference every single way you can. ...more
Great advice! I travelled from Australia by myself for Blogher 13 in Chicago, a dream come true! ...more
