UPDATED: Seattle now on for Saturday, June 13. Details below!

Time to get your SQUEEEE on people, whether you've got a ticket to BlogHer or not, whether you've ever been to a BlogHer conference or not -- a meet-up of BlogHers may be coming to a 'burg near you in the next two weeks! Look, I've been moved to actually use exclamation points, that's how excited I am.

Times, dates and locations are now set for meet-ups in these 14 cities: Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Boulder/Denver, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, San Francisco, St. Louis, Toronto and Vancouver. See the list below for details, including where you can find out who else is going and which blogger will be your gracious host. Six more cities are still seeking your feedback on dates, places and/or times: Austin, Chicago, D.C., Los Angeles, Seattle and Tampa.

From one person who's battled shyness her whole life to any other shy person out there: If you're wanting to meet other BlogHers and don't know a soul, get thee to a meet-up. These get-togethers are a great way to break the ice. I'm seriously thinking of packing the fam into the car and road-tripping to Pasadena to meet the children who wrote this post. See you there?
