To say I’m excited to attend my 6th BlogHer conference would be an understatment of epic proportions.
Admittedly that excitement is mixed with a liberal sprinkling of anxiety (dammit).
Now I call foul on anyone who declares they don’t even feel a smidge of anxious worry when they walk into an event like BlogHer. And if they still insist that they feel nothing but pure unadulterated confidence then I colour myself jealous and ask them what trick they employ to stay so cool under such stressful conditions. But I’m already getting off track (quelle surprise!) so enough about those cool cucumbers who are mythical as far as I’m concerned.
Let’s talk about that anxiety and how I cope with it considering I take medications for such a condition.
So how do I cope and not stay hidden in my room the entire time? (Don’t laugh, I’ve done it in years past). Three words: The People’s Party
Myself along with Megan Velveteen Mind, Jessica Oh The Joys, Janet Izzymom, and Jenny The Bloggess, host one of the awesome Official BlogHer ’12 Conference parties – The People’s Party – the Thursday night at 8pm right before BlogHer ’12 starts.
- No RSVPs required
- No special exclusive invitations
- No feeling left out
- HECK – you don’t even need to leave the hotel!
We don’t even have a dress code. Or a secret code. Or any secrets. Or even any code for that matter. We just want you all there to meet, mingle, and eat yummy snacks, drink tasty drinks, and maybe play with puppies (again: don’t laugh, we had live puppies AND cheerleaders at the party last year).
(I have no idea how we are going to top those puppies but I’m sure we will).
So if you are attending BlogHer 12 and want to jump feet first into the festivities AND/OR are all nervous about not being invited to any parties AND/OR have anxiety about meeting all these fabulous people you have been reading AND/OR have really cute shoes but no where to wear them, please consider this your official invitation, from the ladies pictured below to join us for a grand kick off to BlogHer 12.
See you there :)
Thursday: 8pm in the Hilton, be there and get hugs.
