The Time I Chose My Kid Over a Blogging Conference


no blogher blog conference for me

No Blogher For Me

This week, particularly Thursday – Sunday, I will be hanging low key from the social media world and will be reminding myself that I am doing the right thing. See this weekend is the big blogging event, Blogher and well coincidentally it’s also another event, my son Zeke’s first birthday.

So while the invitations roll into numerous parties and events, I keep telling myself, I am doing the right thing. Yeah, yeah – I know. Zeke totally will NOT remember his first birthday, but you know what I will. I was there for each of my kid’s first birthdays and remember each smashing of the cake.

So while my online friends and fellow bloggers are partying it up in NYC, I’ll be ignoring the tweets, Facebook statuses and blog posts, sigh. But hey, my baby turns 1!

There is always next year, and hey Blogher – Dallas is an awesome place to hold a blogging conference. 🙂

Blissdom 2013

On a similar note, big huge PROPS to Alli Wentworth and gang. In 2013, the Blissdom conference moves from Nashville to Dallas (at least for 2013!).

Here are the deets on the Blissdom Conference:

March 21-23, 2013 in Dallas, TX at The Gaylord Texan
