BlogHer: Not This Year

Just a few thoughts on why I'm not attending BlogHer.

1.) The idea of partying all night and schmoozing makes me tired just thinking about it
2.) Although Hubs has been supportive of my blogging, I can see him locking up the computer and our bank accounts from me
3.) Wait, Hubs wouldn't have to lock me out of our bank accounts because all payments would bounce anyways
4.) My "real" job, the one that puts food on the table and a roof over my family's head, doesn't feel that this conference counts as a business trip
5.) I don't think the people of BlogHer would appreciate my Mama Uniform
6.) I don't have time to lose 10 pounds on such short notice
7.) The NYC pollution is bad for my skin and lungs
8.) I've been trying to throw all the crap out of the house. Why do I need more awesome stuff even if it's free?
9.) I'm still feeling like the new girl in high school
10.) BlogHer would be like going to the prom...solo!

The reality is I've only been blogging for a few short months (how about almost 3 months). I'm very much a novice when it comes to all of this blogging/Twitter/FB mommy high tech stuff.  Quite frankly, I didn't know this conference existed. If it wasn't for all the mommy blogs talking about it, I would have continued on to live without knowing the existence of BlogHer. Heaven forbid!

Perhaps next year!

I know it's just the hurt talking...slightly jealous!

This Not Going To BlogHer was sponsored by A New Breed of Mom. Please feel free to join the rest of us who are not going to BlogHer.

Also part of BlogHerPityParty by Life Without Pink & Mommyfriend because there's just that much hurt  and jealousy. =)


  1. Both of our blogs are 3 months old! Enjoyed reading this post & about your mommy uniform! :)

  2. Yup...I feel the same way. Just not in the cards for this year, but boy oh boy do I want to meet all of you in one big fun place! Perhaps next year!

  3. My blog is just over 3 months old and I feel the same way. I really hope to go next year though. I can't wait to hear from all the girls where it will be held next year. It would be fun to meet all my new bloggy friends!

  4. Hahahaha these is an awesome list! Would love to go to any blog conference if you, Katie from Sluiter Nation and my other favorite bloggers are gonna be there...ugh wait, but my green card had expired hahaha

  5. I agree! I think it would be way overwhelming for me! Thanks for linking up to our Blogher Pity Party!

  7. I am your newest follower and this is so funny. I totally feel like I am being left home while all my bloggy friends go to prom (BlogHer)! I feel like such a loser:) I am so going next year. I've not been blogging very long either. 1 year but only about 6 months have I been posting regularly. I felt like I was a little too green to go this year. But next year baby!Happy Mothering!

  8. Thanks for linking up to our BlogHer Pity Party! I'm a newbie too, maybe next year we can all get our newbie on at BlogHer '11!

  9. Cute post. I think that we should have a Pity Party Reunion at BlogHer11 FOR SURE!
