Friday Favorites: Pre-BlogHer Link Party

Next weekend I will be in San Diego attending the BlogHer Conference. I will be hanging out with my roommates Kelly and Laurie. This will be my 3rd BlogHer Conference and their first.  BlogHer can be a bit overwhelming just because there will be a ton of people attending (over 3000), and it can get chaotic. 

I wrote a humorous post over a week ago comparing Blog Conferences and Sorority Rush, but really, it is not that scary. I think the #1 thing that you can do while at a conference is meet people and introduce yourself.

So let me introduce myself!

AngryJulie in Action by ForTheMommas dot comI’m Julie, and sometimes people call me “Angry Julie”.

I’m in my mid 30’s, married, and have a 6 year old son. I live in Orange County, CA. No, I am not a Real Housewife of Orange County. I’m not sure that I can even qualify to be a Housewife. I work full-time outside of the home. Amongst the chaos of having a 6 year old and working, I like to take photos. I am a Nikon girl, so don’t try to convert me to that other brand that starts with a “C”.

I like to dress up like a girly girl at blog conferences so you might see me in dresses. When I’m on my own time, I’m usually wearing jeans, t-shirts, and my Rainbow flip flops.

This picture was taken of me last year. I really need to get a new profile picture. I’m a year older now, and not quite as tan. I even use a different camera.

I hope to meet you while at BlogHer. Please come introduce yourself!! I promise to be nice….

I figure that you might want to meet other people attending BlogHer 2011 also. I’m starting this today so that you can go and check out the blogs and sites of other attendees. 

So if you are going to BlogHer, please link up, and visit some other bloggers and Twitter peeps whom are attending.

Hi Julie, What exactly is this conference for? What do you learn? I've never heard of it before and am curious since I live in San Diego. I just might want to attend as I am relatively new at blogging. Thanks.

Thanks for the Linky, I'll be much more dressed up than usual at Blogher, but I will probably still be wearing my ratty Rainbows flip flops! Of course I have my sparkly Rainbows for fancy occasions :-)

No problem. It is a huge conference and it helps to know something about these wonderful bloggers that you will be meeting.
