Guess what?

I’m going to Blogher 2012!!

“What is Blogher 2012?” you might be asking yourself right now…it’s okay, I asked the same thing the first time I heard about it…it’s a blogging conference. One of the most fun, exciting, highly anticipated blogging conferences out there!

And I am going!!!

I’ve already run it past the family, and received the green light to start my travel arrangements. I’ve already purchased my ticket (at a discount, of course), found my roommates and after searching high and low for hotels in Manhattan, found a room at a reasonable price and paid our deposit.

Did I mention that it’s 11 months away?

Did I mention it’s in NEW YORK CITY!?!

Can you tell that I am incredibly excited? Because I totally am!!

I’ve only been to New York City once, and that was for a Memorial Day weekend shopping trip with my girlfriends. That was back when I was still working…and had money for shopping in New York.

Sigh. I miss those days…

I am a bit of a freak when it comes to travel arrangements and planning out trips. You might think it was crazy to buy my ticket to Blogher 12 while Blogher 11 was still in session…but they tickets were 20% off and I’d be a fool to miss out on that deal. And the hotel being booked 11 months in advance? That’s what you call thinking ahead, pals.

With over 3000 bloggers heading to Manhattan next August, I don’t want to be left without a room!

    My BFF and I are able to afford to go and get the discounted student rate and airfare is relatively cheap (since I live in NY already). But, we were trying to find hotels where we could spit the bill in 1/2 and the hotel would cost double the tickets & airfare for each of us so I don’t if in the end we will be able to go.

    Any tips for newbies to BlogHer about finding hotels?

      Yes! Call the hotel or email and ask if they have a media rate. Tell them that you will blog about the hotel, tweet about it, check in on foursquare, Facebook etc!
