As I’m preparing to get out the door to the BlogHer Conference in Chicago I realize that it’s the travel I dread. Once I’m surrounded by 1,500 like-minded women, I’ll be fine. By like-minded I mean they’re women who have drank the proverbial Kool Aid of Social Media. I miss my kids like crazy and I’ve been gone just minutes.
I can’t wait to get to some of the sessions, waiting to hear Jane Gassner speak is like waiting to hear from any celebrity you’ve admired from afar.
I do have another mission though.
I’m bringing gifts. Not just any old gifts either. I’ve got tee shirts from 10 Again (yes, that same line you see at Barneys and Nordstrom), fragrance and cosmetics from Sephora, full outfits from I Am Beyond, DVDs from Brainy Baby and Guitar Hero for your Nintendo DS.
The giveaways will be completely arbitrary. I’d love to make new friends, so be sure to follow me on Twitter and Whrrl. Pop me an email at onlineauthor at gmail if you’re in the building at BlogHer (or one of the fabulous parties) and I’ll find you and delight you.
Just be camera ready, because I take a lot of pictures.
I’m going to embed the Whrrl Widget so that you can follow the fun live, it’s like a real time scrap book. I’ll do a recap and hopefully we’ll get to see what’s in the goodie bags live.
As soon as I catch my breath, I’ll get you a decent post about the women I’m meeting here. They are extraordinary.

I love Chicago. Wish I could be there too. Have a good time. I can’t wait to hear what you have to say about the conference.
I don’t know what 10 Again is but cool that you are arriving with gifties. Have fun.
Wish I were there! Have fun!
Jessica — LOVED meeting you and thank you for the random Guitar Hero gift–what a cool way to meet people!
