I’m Going to BlogHer ’09!



Going to BlogHer
Wrangling mics, greening conferences
Will I see you there?

That’s right kids, this July I’m packing up my bags and going to BlogHer ‘09. But me being me, I can’t just attend a conference. Oh no. I have to get involved in some way. So, I volunteered to use my mad podcasting skillz and will be a Mic Wrangler during the conference. What does that mean? Well, it means that if you want to ask a question or make a comment during one of conference sessions some woman who is fleet of foot is going to sidle up to you and thrust a microphone into your face so you can make your voice heard during the conference and be recorded for the conference sessions’ podcasts. And one of those fleet of foot women might just be me! So make sure you say a big “Hi Lisa!” or “Hi Condo!” to me during the conference!

Not only will I be there making sure the big name bloggerati will be heard, I’m going to help make BlogHer a little bit of a greener conference too. That’s right the BlogHer organizers in all their wisdom (?) selected me to be on the Green Committee along with such green notables as Fake Plastic Fish, Big Green Purse, The Smart Mama, Green and Clean Mom, and Green Talk. I’m flattered and find it interesting because the rest of the women on the Green committee are serious A List Green bloggers. How they let me on that committee is beyond me, since I'm all "hey that's great for you but for my peeps in the Midwest that's not always practical - how about this?"
Oh God. I just called myself practical. Next thing you know I’ll be wearing orthopedic shoes and lots of granny grey tweed. Kill. Me. Now.

Well, maybe not. I have obligations. Wait until after the conference, OK? Thanks.
Have you been to BlogHer? I know that cute shoes are a must and since I’ll literally be running around the conference, those shoes are going to be flats. What advice to you have for me? Can a nonMom survive at BlogHer? Most importantly, will I see you there?

May be it is a small step. But do get involved as it will take you long distances. We do have a mission. We have to save our world.

Hey, I'm going to BlogHer too! I'll look for you -- you'll be the one with the microphone, cleaning up after everyone.

Seriously, I admire your willingness to get involved. I just want to go and get free stuff and meet people!
