BlogHer? I Hardly Knew Her
Here it is a few weeks from BlogHer and I still haven't decided if I'm going to go. Who's going? Are you? Do you want to meet me? Is there an open bar?
Part of me is bitter about these blogging conferences. I've been blogging professionally for over a year now, and I only know a few people that are in that boat. My counterparts are always speaking here or there or getting trips and invites and stuff. I get emails for cheap Viagra. I'm like the Rodney Dangerfield of pro-bloggers, but better dressed.
I must say, the idea of seminars and lectures on blogging doesn't sound very interesting (unless I was the one giving said lecture- pantless), but the social aspect does. Is it acceptable to go strictly
ballroom for that? The networking possibilities and the chance of putting faces to names, and then drinks to those faces, intrigues me. They do that kind of stuff there, right?
Then there is the part about me being a cheap bastard.
I guess what I really want to know is whether or not anyone from L.A. is driving to San Francisco and in need of a) someone to help pay for gas and mess with the radio dial, and b) a roommate?
