Decision: I NEED YOUR HELP!

Even if you're just a lurker here, please de-lurk for this one; it'll take two seconds.

Are you going to Blogher?

(See, wasn't that easy?)

Sorry, no. Any airfare fuel will be spent sending me towards the Italian coast and Roman walls.

Lori at Spinning Yellow said...

Well, I WANT to go, but it is far, far, away for me. And that means very expensive. I had a scheduling conflict, but now that is out of the way, so I think I am cleared to go, if it wasn't for the $$. Still considering ....

Aimee said...

Nope - no Blogher for me.

Major Bedhead said...

Nope. I can't afford it. I hope they have one on the east coast one of these days.

InTheFastLane said...

I am not going. It would be hard to justify going when my blog is still super secret :)

I am going to be in California around that time so maybe I will have to just stop in.

Julie Pippert said...

I wish I was, but alas, no.

twithhoney said...

I wish I was going, but alas I do blogging for fun and I can't justify the vacation time from work and expense of flying to the conference.

Trenches of Mommyhood said...

I wanted to sooo bad, but in an unfortunate case of bad timing, we're going to be on our family vacation at the Cape.

I'm going to BlogHer Boston though in October! (not that that helps you out any...)

Delurking again..
I don't know what Blogher is....????

MP said...

Short answer: no
Why: It's in San Francisco which is beautiful..yet not a very inexpensive trip..I'll go when it is more affordable for someone from the midwest.

Never That Easy said...

Hello: I am a lurker. No, I am not going to BlogHer, but it still sounds like fun.

Family Adventure said...

Nope - but if you go, I would love a full report :)

Lex said...

I was thinking about it... but my little one is still nursing and I can't see leaving her overnight quite yet. And taking her with me... I don't see that happening.

Beth said...

I wish! Just don't have the money this year. Maybe next year....

Blog Antagonist said...

Nope. Kinda not my thing. Plus, we have a girls' weekend every summer and I can't afford both. I enjoy reading about those who went, though.

Robin said...

Ok, since you asked I'll delurk.

I'm not going, but I wish I was. I live in Israel so a trip to SF is astronomically expensive and sadly can't in any way be justified. Shame though, because it really should count as a legitimate mental health expense tax deduction.

Janet said...

I don't think I am. We're taking a big trip to Disney in April. I don't think I can justify California, too.

Demand More said...

I wish. I would love to and know some people who did last year who LOVED it. But I don't want to drive and I can't fly without drugs,ha. Not to mention how much it will cost to fly, stay and join in the fun. Have fun if you go though, I'm told it is well worth it. Plus Dooce will be there, I love her.

jen said...

Dude. YES.

now get your ass out to Cali pronto.

Krista said...

Which one?
But no, can't afford it at all. Lame.

Scout's Honor said...

I'd like to, but it's at the height for my swimming champoinships for my kids--both usa year-round and rec teams. The hotel is also a bit pricier than I would like. oh, well. Someday....

flutter said...

Trying to!

and hey, email me would ya?

Scarlett O'Kara said...

Since I am relatively new to reading other blogs...not sure what it is...please explain.

Loralee Choate said...

HECK, YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

jess said...

um, it's actually in my backyard this year so I kinda would like to go, but I haven't looked into details yet (cost etc, i don't even know when it is). having said that, if you go, come and visit me!!!!

jeanie said...

No, I am not going to Blogher - lol, bit far for me to travel.

BTW - I have only just today been out checking my blogs (absent for over a week now) and just want to send you a big cyber hug for obviously some carp that has been flying your way!

Reesie said...

No, it isn't about the money or the value. BlogHer was phenomenal last year and I would recommend it to anyone. For me it is simply a matter of logistics. Our family is attending a conference in Las Vegas the week before. For me to go to SFO, I'd have to take the 4 year old with me and I just don't think that the 2 of us can handle 2 cross country trips in 2 weeks. That said, GO!!!! You won't regret it.

Susie said...

No, I just started my own blog about a week ago so it seems silly for me to spend all that money to go away for a purpose that I'm not sure exactly about. Besides, I'm still nursing and would have to bring a toddler...

Kimberly said...

YES!!!!

Jennifer said...

Where? When? Huh?

(Yes, I am that clueless.)

Ally said...

No, not going. And sad about it. I didn't know the dates and I unwittingly scheduled a vacation during that time.

BetteJo said...

Um .. no. No money for it but really - I've been blogging for just under a year. Not sure if I'm ready for joining in - in such a big way.

Not yet anyway.

Kerry said...

I'm hoping to!

M&Co. said...

Would love to but it's not in the budget this year. Margaret

Meg said...

I don't know what that is. Sorry.

Amanda said...

Yes. Sorry I didn't get back to you. You still wanna chat 'bout the St. Francis?

Single Mom Seeking said...

Yes, yes, I'm going! So far, I'm only signed up for Friday... but that might change. It's my 36th birthday weekend. I'd LOVE to meet you!

Oh, The Joys said...

I am.

(And thank you so much for the card!!)

xo,
J

I just a lucker

Amy Y said...

Not really a lurker but no, I'm not going. I don't know really anything about it and I have only been blogging for a little over a year so I'm not sure I'm "qualified" :)

Christine said...

i wish. but i be real broke.

Running on empty

Orangeblossoms said...

I might catch some of it..... but not planning on attending the whole thing.... also, as an anonymous blogger I worry..... you know, about having my cover blown!

Christine said...

I hope to...SF is just over an hour from here, so that's not the issue. The problem is we're so broke that I don't know if I have the cash for hotel/registration.

I can't believe that's the case, but it is.

Dirty Dancing Through LIFE said...

ohhh... it sounds like so much fun but I can't... booo for me. I'll be in the City July 11-13th for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and just cannot manage to make it to both (besides the $1800 I had to raise just to walk). Ahhh... someday I'll be able to put a face to all the blog pages I love.

luckyzmom said...

To Blogher or not to Blogher, that is the question. So little time, so much to do.

No:O(

Kelly said...

I would love to, but it would also scare the crap out of me. So many awesome women, and me so insecure! Recipe for disaster. Good thing I can't afford it.

Tis I. said...

nope.
