BlogHer '10 Has Arrived, and I Don't Have to Pack

Pin It

Blogher logo BlogHer '10 has arrived but it feels like BlogHer '09 was just over.  Where does the time fly?

This year as y'all probably know, BlogHer '10 is in my home town of New York City. 

I can't tell you how strange it feels to read everyone's tweets and Facebook entries about packing and traveling when I'm not doing any of those things.  I'll just be hopping on my usual Manhattan-bound commuter train.

Besides the lack of traveling, this year feels a little strange for me in other ways as well.  Though I'm excited and eagerly anticipating seeing my fellow BlogHer Contributing Editors, a whole bunch of bloggers that I read throughout the year, and new bloggers I haven't even heard of yet, I'm a little apprehensive. 

This year, for the first time, I haven't had the time to immerse myself in the blogosphere as I would have liked.  Life and work changes, some good, some bad, yet all of them time consuming, have gotten in the way.  It makes me feel a bit cut off from my usual blogosphere connections.

Also, and this is highly unusual for me since I'm a bit of a ham, I'm feeling a bit shy about being around the nearly 2200 people who are attending. Yeah me, shy!

Who'd a thunk it?

Now, I'm certain all of these weird feelings will go away the minute I throw myself into the mix.  I'll be live blogging a couple of sessions for BlogHer Business tomorrow, so that alone should warm me up nicely for the big event on Friday and Saturday.

But feeling weird or not, I wouldn't miss it for the world, and I expect that by the end of the weekend, I'll be exhausted, yet re-invigorated about the power of blogging and where it might take me next.

I'll be sure to let you know!
