I'm going to BlogHer '11
It's a not-so-balmy 18 degrees right now in New York City, up from 15 degrees. I'm pretty sure a crust of ice has formed on the slushy puddles in every crosswalk in Manhattan. But my thoughts are warm and sunny. I'm going to BlogHer '11! I'm so excited about two days of bloggers, workshops, chatting and I hope, meeting blog friends, in San Diego next summer.
In 2010 BlogHer '10 was held in New York, not more than two miles from my house. I thought about it and didn't make up my mind to attend until it was sold out. I went on the waiting list and waited. But the waiting list didn't open up and regrettably I didn't get to go. I'm not sure if the time is good at work or if I will have other commitments close by -- but in 2011 I'm not waiting. I signed up last week and I am dreaming of sunny days in California. I love San Diego and can't think of more fun than San Diego and bloggers. Is anyone else planning to be there?
It's been another hectic, snowy week in New York, but it's a nice weekend ahead. This morning the son of Bible study friends will be Bar Mitzvah, and our group will be together at services and the lunch following. Tonight there is a concert at our synagogue. Tomorrow is my annual holiday celebration with my friend, Mary. We actually do our celebrations after New Years, when we especially need something fun to look forward to. I'm very excited about this year's treat and will leave it as a surprise for a post in the next few days.
Tonight I announce the winner of the Happy One Hundred Giveaway. Stay tuned!
