I read with interest about BlogHer ’12, a blogging conference in New York. I would love to attend, however I am in Katoomba, Australia, so it is a big commute to go to this conference. If I had the money I would have organised to go, although I only found about it today. The conference is on from the 2nd to the 4th of August, and it is for all women bloggers. I have always dreamed of going to New York, it is on my plan and I will eventually visit. The idea of taking off for a conference by myself to a different country, to a place that I have always wanted to visit is just a wonderful idea – Bring it on! However reality brings me back down, No money, Kids to care for, and so on. Oh well.
Just a bit about BlogHer’ 12 from the BlogHer’ 12 website: “In 2005, BlogHer Co-founders Elisa Camahort Page, Jory Des Jardins and Lisa Stone held a conference to answer the question, “where are all the women who blog?” Today, BlogHer conferences bring together thousands of these women from around the world to discuss, inspire and connect with each other!”
Maybe in the future I will be able to attend this conference or others? I can only dream. Is there a conference or something that you are longing to go to? Are you working towards it or saving to get there? What is it, let us know and we can all share in your dream.
I am sure there are local events or even national events that I might attend, however I am one to always find out late and currently we don’t have the resources for me to fly somewhere, stay at a hotel and pay for tickets to a conference. Maybe soon, and one day, but not at the moment.
I think I am just drooling over rubbing shoulders with like minded people, fellow professionals and a chance to build more of a brand for my blog. Since I started, my audience has grown and being a contributor to another parenting/mum site is exciting for me currently. It will be interesting to see what the future holds.
Do you daydream about your future? I do, I am sure everyone does it. I have the most elaborate fantasies, about my book I will write one day, my home business that is a giant success and people offer me millions for it – I refuse to sell. I know all these things could happen, they are nice fantasies and realistically might never happen, but it is nice to dream and have hope, if you never dream or see it you will never try, and never know.
