I'm wearing stilettos to BlogHer 2009

Last year I attended BlogHer 2008 in San Fransisco for the first time. I came back quite empowered, met incredible women, and really enjoyed a childless weekend in a wonderful city. It was exactly one year ago, to date, that on a whim I took advantage of the early bird pricing and saved $100 off the conference cost. You can too here, as the offer for BlogHer09 ends 2/28/09.

This year in Chicago I will be speaking on the panel "
MommyBlogging: “Balance” is a Big, Fat, Lying, McLiar LIE for Moms who Blog (and the rest of us too)" Please consider going to BlogHer so I can look out in the crowd and see some familiar faces. I'll the the one in stilettos and pearl necklace... the rest of the outfit I am still playing out in my head for now cause I don't want to wear the same thing as my roommate.

Let me know if you will be there.

I will be there! Look out for me, I will be the woman full of smiles and NOT wearing stilettos! :-)

Melisa with one S said...

I'll be there! ;) I may be easy to find: I'll be wearing a tiara, most likely.

Domestic Extraordinaire said...

I will be in Chicago that week, but not going to BlogHer-just partying up with my friends on Thurs & whenever else they get in. Sadly I will be leaving on Friday evening. I have a wedding to shoot on Saturday.

Allison Says said...

I wish I could be there!

Tons of luck to you. I'm sure you'll be beautiful and inspiring :)

Rachel said...

You're speaking!!! YAY!!!!! I will definitely attend your panel!
I wish I could have reg'd early, but alas.. wasn't meant to be.

I'll be the one... well, I'll be the one. ;-)

MWAH

Jen said...

I'll be there with bells on! Can't wait to meet everyone specially you! I'll be at your panel for sure.

Designher Momma said...

you know I will be there and am excited to hopefully meet you. I'm still working on my outfit selections...

Marinka said...

I'll be there, with crocs on! What?

Marinka said...

I'll be there, with crocs on! What?

Karen MEG said...

I am THERE baby! Good for you to be speaking, I'm really looking forward to it... and to be seeing your stilettos in action :)!

Christy said...

I'll be there! Looking forward to your session. :)

LaskiGal said...

I wanted to be there. I had my credit card out and was ready to book.

But then. Something happened.

It looks like I may be very busy that weekend.

But I'll be scrounging the blogs for all the awesome details when you all get back!

Congrats on speaking! No doubt you'll rock those stilettos . . .

Tara R. said...

I'll be there, sitting in the front row, hanging on your every classy word.

Scary Mommy said...

You're SPEAKING?!!! Yay!!! I'll be there with bells and whistles. :)

Kate Coveny Hood said...

As much as l would love to see both you and your stilettos in person - I don't think I'll be going this year. I would blame it on the recession (I blame everything on the recession) - but I just realized that a beach vacation that we're taking with my inlaws will start that Saturday. So while it's sad to miss out - at least I'll be too busy having fun to feel sorry for myself!

Becca said...

I wish... I bet it will be so much fun!

As for the comment you left- that dress, it came from Target, $9.99 baby!

Krystyn said...

Oh I soooo wish I could go. I would love to meet up with you and some other fab ladies.

And, no fair...you get to room with SmartAss mom? Now I'm double jealous.

haniaski said...

YES !!!

heartatpreschool said...

I will be there! See you there!

carrie said...

That is so cool! No, I'm not going - but consider me there in spirit!

Elaine A. said...

I'll be there. I can't wait to hear you speak! YAY!

Life at the White House said...

look at all these women who are going! so awesome you are speaking - i'm not cool enough to go......i'd be the lame one there who only has about 10 people who reads her blog.

nonetheless, congrats to you.....sounds like a blast!

Kari said...

I will hopefully be able to go NEXT year!!! I want to go this year, badly. But, that isn't going to happen. {I would rather be bonding with Audrey and soaking up all the cuteness that is Charlotte anyway...no offense....I'm just sayin'}
But, have fun for everyone of us that cannot go!

anymommy said...

I'll be there too. Looking forward to hearing you speak and meeting you!

So Not Mom-a-licious said...

I saw that you were speaking. How exciting for you! I'm sure that will be a great session to be at!

I want to go so bad, but for some reason, I am fearful. I want to see all of my favorite bloggers. But I am a little worried that I will not be able to connect with anyone, or meet those that I enjoy following. Tomorrow is the last day for tickets...ugh! And I love Chicago and my family lives not too far away! Oh well, maybe another year. Although, I will miss seeing you speak! Make a Vlog for me!

Cecily R said...

I wish I could come...but you will be FABULOUS.

Megryansmom said...

Sadly I am not able to attend.

Halftime Lessons said...

I will NOT be going...dammit...

My wife has a problem with my partying with hundreds of women.

She's selfish.

Tracey said...

I'll be there. :) Probably in jeans and sandals, pretending to be a hippie, but I'll be there. :)

Smart A$$ Mom said...

YAY!!

Is about all I can gasp out in between breathing into a paper bag.

I am so excited!!!

Every Day Goddess said...

I wish I could be there to hear you speak! I can't wait to hear how it all goes, and see your outfit!! I know you will be wonderful.

Angie [A Whole Lot of Nothing] said...

I'll be there to properly rub up on you.

Nap Warden said...

Bought my ticket yesterday. You know I'm all about a deal!
You're speaking...wow!

Melissa said...

I'll be there...sitting next to Melisa in my tiara, most likely!!

Of course I hope your going to wear more than pearls and stilettos...or all the Dad bloggers are going to be hanging out at your chat! :)

Can't wait to hear you speak!

Laura said...

I feel like crying - I have been plannning on going to Blogher all year - and now, I cannot swing it....so sad!

touched said...

Next year. And we'll have a drink.

LceeL said...

I'll be there. I don't think I'll be in stilettos, though. And I KNOW a pearl necklace would be out of the question.

the mama bird diaries said...

I'll be there.
Yes to the stilettos.
No to the crocs.

Flea said...

What fun! I'd say you should wear something sparkly with those stilettos.

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

I'm going - I bought my ticket last month! I may wear stilettos since I will be kid-free!

Rhea said...

I'm considering going. I would have been there in a heart beat, but now I'm working full time, and getting time off is challenging...and we have a trip planned to Disney in June...but I've never been to Chicago..and a chance to meet bloggers....

Grandy said...

OH I so wish I could go to BlogHer. Maybe there is still hope. How fun to meet so many people I've met online.

Kat said...

I'd love to go since it is so close to where I live, but it is three weeks from my due date. I'm still considering risking it. Hmmmm...

Leslie said...

Can't wait to talk stilettos at the cocktail parties, woo-hoo!!!

April said...

Considering the name of my blog is "It's All About Balance," maybe it's best that I can't go this year after all!

Anti-Supermom said...

Pauline,
I'll be there. I'd love for us to chat.

And so happy that you will be a speaker.

Texan Mama @ Who Put Me In Charge said...

I'm still considering it but can't make a commitment quite yet.

But, I looked at the link, and I was kinda confused at the pricing... are they actually making the SPEAKERS and PRESENTERS pay more to attend than the regular attendees? That's jacked up. Certainly, I must be misunderstanding something.

I just don't know if I really need to know all that they'd teach me at a blog conference. I don't feel "serious" enough to attend a blog conference. But, I'm all up for the cocktail parties!

Kelley said...

Got my sad pants on.

Come on girl, you need to help me find a way to be there. If not in person at least in spirit.

Amy said...

So bummed I'm not going to be able to go and bunk with you guys. All these kids and their damn schedules! They keep ruining my life ;-) That's okay though, I expect many drunk phone calls from Traci and she better hand the phone to you so we can chat!

Musings of a Housewife said...

I'm bummed I can't go. BLEH. I have a speaking engagement the following weekend (which I AM very excited about; I just wish they two events weren't back to back!!) so I can't do it. next year. Fo Sho!

Ali said...

me me me! i'll be there!
