I am heading to BlogHer ’09, see you when I return!

[ 2 ] July 23, 2009 |

3456291824660fill150x150I am thrilled to be heading to Chicago today for this year’s BlogHer conference. This will be my first time at this sold-out annual event that brings together bloggers from every corner of the blogosphere for hands-on learning and lively discussions with plenty of networking opportunities to meet other bloggers, businesses, media folks, etc. This is right up my alley.

I spend a great deal of time online for work and personal reasons–blogging, tweeting, reading, and sending e-mails. I love the Internet for its convenience, as an effective communication tool to meet new people, and to find and share information–but I’m also a visual person and love seeing and doing things in real life and seeing and talking to others in person. This year’s conference theme is “In Real Life” and will provide plenty of time for real-life connections with people, companies, and technology.

In addition to all the conference happenings, I have scheduled in some “me” time–a whole day in Chicago, post-conference without my husband or kids, to do what I want to do (like seeing what’s new at the Art Institute of Chicago). Can’t wait.

So while I’m gone, enjoy reading past articles on Kidoinfo, including 100 things to do with kids in RI this summer and 10 Ways to Staycation at Home. Check the events calendar for a daily list of things to do and follow me on Twitter to see what I am doing while in Chicago.

I will be back on Monday, probably a bit jet-lagged but most likely energized by my time away.
