I’m Going to BlogHer 08!

I just registered for BlogHer in San Francisco July 18-20. Let me know if I’ll see you there and if you have any great tips for making the most of it.

Secretly, I was hoping I’d be invited to speak, but when I remembered I’m nearly totally invisible in the blogging/mommy world, I decided I’d give me ego a hard smack on the ass and get registered as an attendee.

I’m super excited about attending and also a little nervous at the same time. I generally find that I don’t fit in that great with other women, especially big groups of other women. I generally end up talking way too much about business or making money and it makes them uncomfortable.

When my kids were babies I could relate to the whole mom thing, and I still do, but since they are older, it’s not quite the same. Back then, I spent all my time obsessing over the latest breastfeeding in public laws and whether the other mom’s we went to preschool with liked me.

Now, I can’t seem to stop talking about recurring revenue, business models, social networking, info-marketing, and the next cool new start up. Ladies Who Launch has helped me re-connect with my feminine side while still indulging my passion for business.

I’m hoping that BlogHer will help me understand how I can be more interesting and bring more moms to my blogs while still being me. If you have any ideas, I’d love to hear em.

    I’ll be there!! i’ve been blogging for about five years now, but this will be my first BlogHer. I can totally relate to not fitting in though (and I’ve mingled with other BlogHer gals at SXSW). Not being a mom, and not being much of a current events blogger, I sometimes feel like I run in a different sort of circle. Are you going to the Newbie Party?

    I hope it goes well for you — and I am sure you will fit in!! I feel like you are always getting along well with groups of women, by the way! Just one woman’s opinion… 😉
