Will You Be At BlogHer In Chicago?

I will.

I’ve got to admit, I’m a little intimidated by the size and scope of it. The conference looks interesting, and I’m excited to meet people who have given me windows into their lives. I wouldn’t begin to list them, lest I leave someone off the list.

Which brings me to this.

I’m going to the Social Luxe Lounge, Bowl Her and the people’s party. They seem inclusive and I’m looking forward to meeting folks.

Of course my phone has been ringing for the past three days with, “Were you invited to the ______ or the _____?” I hear it’s only 30 people. So folks, am I walking into High School again? Do the brands mean to exclude 500 people or are they really that interested in 30? Am I completely spoiled by the inclusiveness of the 140 Conference and Girls In Tech? Is my bubble about to burst, or was I just wearing blinders?

Here are the parties that seem to “get it”.

Am I off target and just too prickly? Cuz, it’s been known to happen.
