Informative posts are popping up all over the blogosphere about the upcoming popularity contest, I mean blogging conference, known as BlogHer. I attended last year’s conference in New York and, though I felt a bit overwhelmed by it all, I had a blast. This year it’s in San Diego, SCORE, and I found a sponsor, DOUBLE SCORE.
As I’ve been reading through all the BlogHer posts, it occurred to me that nowhere have I read about these three KEY tips on what to bring to BlogHer. So here is my contribution to the BlogHer-post-saturation that is occurring all over bloggy-land. No matter who ya are, or what your purpose it in attending this conference, here are . . .
Three Things You Absolutely MUST Bring to BlogHer ’11:
1) A LIGHT SWEATER. This tip you can thank my mother for. Growing up in San Diego, my mother used to always remind me to take a sweater with me whenever I left the house, because although the weather here is typically sunny and in the 70’s, it still gets chilly at night. PLUS, conference rooms are always FREEZING! You will definitely want a wrap for the sessions.
Be safe with black or sauce it up with a bright color like yellow.
2) FLIP FLOPS: It’s San Diego. Flip flops are appropriate footwear for almost any time of the year in San Diego, and more importantly, I can pretty much guarantee that your dogs will be barkin’ at some point over the weekend from the new shoes you bought but haven’t broken in yet. Buy some trendy, decorative flips, like Havianas, and shove them in your computer bag. You won’t be sorry.
3) YOUR ONE-LINER: Sum up your blog’s elevator pitch into one line that you can deliver, casually and on the fly as you’re passing out your business card (you do have a business card, right?). I still don’t haven’t worked out my my one-liner, so thankfully I have two more weeks to work on it.
That’s it. Those are my tips. Aside from be sure to hydrate and have fun! Can’t wait to see y’all there.
Another big thanks to Silver Dolphin Books for sponsoring my BlogHer conference pass. Love you long time!
