being held at the Navy Pier in Chicago next weekend. A few of our friends and clients are speaking on panels at the event and our wonderful Editors from Wiley will be there doing some fun promotions, so I jumped at the chance to get up there to meet them in person. (“Wait, Kathy? You’re going somewhere other than your desk or the playground? Surely you jest!”… Nope. I am, and I’ll be there without a child on my hip. It’s a tiny miracle.)
I am really anxious to get there and mingle with bloggers I have been reading for ages, not to mention see some of the great panels they have lined up this year. I am hoping to catch a bunch including Self-branding and Self-promotion, Technical Tools To Build Traffic, The State of the Momosphere, Professional Blogging: Art and Commerce, and of course Book to Blog and Back Again which is sponsored by none other than Wiley! I also want to jump in on The Art of Crafts, because hello? Amy Sedaris! Joelle gave me her book last Christmas and I just adore it.
I’d be lying if I wasn’t also looking forward to getting dressed like an adult and going to an actual cocktail party and not have to drag a diaper bag! If you’ll be attending this years conference, make sure to say hello if you see me prancing around!
