#BlogHer15 Is Coming to Town

I'm Going to #BlogHer15: Experts Among Us

I hope Santa will excuse me for using his song, but I'm as excited as a kid waiting for Santa's arrival. BlogHer15 is coming to New York City -- just a short bus ride away -- in July. Last year's trip to San Jose took a lot of flights and I'm happy that this should be a lot easier to get to and, I am sure, just as much fun. 

There's always one speaker in particular I am eager to hear. Last year it was Kerry Washington and this year it's Ava DuVernay, who directed "Selma," one of my favorite movies. The keynotes are just one part of the experience and I'm looking forward to meeting blog friends new and of long-standing, sharpening my blogging skills and having fun at the exhibitions. Is anyone else in Buttercupland planning to attend? There's still time to get a ticket.  

If  you need any encouragement here's a photograph of Columbus Circle, just five short blocks from the Hilton, where the conference will be taking place. I took this on Thursday, one of the most perfect spring days ever.

I'll be back tomorrow with some Pink Saturday/Sunday fun. As ever, thanks for visiting and wishes for a great weekend.

Columbus Circle looks inviting. No plans though to attend BlogHer 15. Looking forward to living the experience vicariously through you. So keep us posted.

How I wish we had something like this out here. I often feel that my blogging is awfully amateurish. I imagine that one could learn a lot at such an event. I'll count on you to let us know all about it!
