I’ll be heading to NYC in just a few short weeks for my return BlogHer, the largest women’s blogging conference in the world. I’m kind of excited to say it’s my third year. I’m starting to feel a little old school (Don’t worry. I know I’m not truly old school since I haven’t been blogging since Al Gore invented the internet.)
This year seems to be the year of making people feel comfortable about conferences before they actually attend the conference. I’m totally down with that. In fact, I belong to THREE Facebook groups devoted exclusively to pre-BlogHer chatter. And when I remember, I actually look at the BlogHer hashtag on Twitter (#BlogHer12). But I’m such a non-preparer that I will be decidedly unprepared as conference time approaches.
One thing I don’t need to prepare for is the wide variety of faces I’ll see. I’m used to it by now.
I’m not talking about individual people. I’m talking about the faces that bloggers put on. Some you’ll want to kiss and some you’ll want to smack. We are all women, after all.
So to alleviate a little anxiety about what to expect, poke a little fun, and exercise my acting chops, I’ve prepared a brief video on the top 10 blogger reactions you might expect to find at BlogHer 12.
