I'll Be There

I better be there, along with Rachel and Jen, or else we're all in a lot of trouble!  Working with Rachel and Jen to help plan Blog Sugar has almost been like planning a wedding or some other very big, fancy event in ones life.  It seems so far away and like the day will never come, but then all of a sudden the big day is here and you're so excited that you just hope you remember to breathe and take it all in.  That's sort of how I feel about this years Blog Sugar.

I absolutely love blogging.  More than I ever thought I would.  Sometimes I love it so much it's a bit of a problem because I obsess over it.  There are some downsides to blogging, but really at the end of the day, I wouldn't trade in my little space on the web for anything (that's a bold statement, and of course I would trade it in for a million dollars or many other very important things, but you know what I mean).

Anyhow, the thing I love most about blogging is that it doesn't happen in a vacuum.  Blogging exists because we all exist out there, inspiring, encouraging each other, sharing our God given talents on a daily basis.  And I can't wait to meet so many of you out there in real life!  You read someone's blog and you think you know them, but the knowing really comes when you can hug a person, hear their voice, see their smile for real.  That's what I'm looking forward to the most about Blog Sugar 2011.  Sure, there are going to be amazing speakers and uplifting panels to attend, but really, it's connecting with other bloggers in a very real and tangible way that I look forward to the most.

So come on September, hurry up and get here!  But not too fast, because we still have a lot of work to do!

Go visit Rachel to see who else will be there this year :)

  5. this landlocked kansas gal is so excited to meet/jabber with fellow bloggers. thanks for all the hard work you're doing, and i hope to get to meet you!

  6. I am bummed I didnt purchase the ticket...the Rose Center is actually very close to me...my daughter has performed in The Nutcracker there several times...very nice place...GREAT CHOICE! The day I found out about this event was the same day the Hubs and I decided I would not be returing to work come September....so I was freaking about the BENJAMINS...it could have been $5 and I probably would have still convinced myself that it was not the right time to spend thise $5 :).....sounds like fun...I'm a TOTAL blogging rookie but am already obsessed...HAVE FUN.

  7. My pleasure ladies! Can't wait to meet you all :)

  8. Yay! :) I've been on the planning end of conferences and they are a crazy amount of work. But they repay the work in so many ways--especially in new friends! I'm looking forward to meeting you and the rest of the girls come September. :)
