I’m Going To #BlogHer15 – Wait! I’m Going To BlogHer ?


I’m Going To #BlogHer! I’m Going To BlogHer! I’m Going To BlogHer!  Wait! I’m Going To BlogHer? Okay so I may be just a teeny bit excited about the fact that I am going to #BlogHer15 in a few weeks but I may also be a teeny bit anxious. I have had a BlogHer Conference on my Blogger Wishlist probably since my first keystroke in the awesome world of Blogging and now I can hardly believe that it’s happening.

 

 

The day I was able to Register for BlogHer was honestly one of the most exciting days I’ve had as a Blogger. When I added BlogHer to my wish list I had the stipulation that I be able to pay for the entire Registration on my own from my Blog. I Did It! So as I clicked that Registration button I had a mixture of pride and reservation. Why the reservation you ask? Okay, you didn’t ask but here’s the answer anyways…

“Oh God I have to MEET People!!”

I am not a solo kinda gal. Meaning, I am very introverted. Yes, I know I share, I’m active on social media, I’ve been to a BootCamp and hosted Blog MeetUps for goodness sake – heck I even have a YouTube Channel BUT talking through keystrokes and chatting with a camera all day are totally different than that face to face interaction on such s large scale as BlogHer. I’m usually pretty good once introductions are done but that first ‘Hello‘ that for me is the hardest thing. So when I clicked that button giving me a spot at this year’s BlogHer Conference the first thing I thought was “Oh God I have to MEET People!!”

For nearly 3 weeks that was all I could think of. Yes, there were other Bloggers I knew attending but I didn’t know-know them (yeah folks I just flashed back to High School…lol). So I was about to take a flight, stay in a hotel and socialize with people I’ve only met online.

What In The World Was I Thinking?

So I started out on a mission to Take The Edge Off I was going to find a way to make that initial ‘Hello‘ a bit easier. I joined a few Facebook Groups BlogHer15 Attendees. The first BlogHer15 Awesome Attendees was created by other Attendees to make getting to know each other less stressful and the other was the Official Going To BlogHer Group. I can’t even say how much these two groups have helped me put my nerves to rest ain’t I can just be happy and excited about going.

I also found the BlogHer App which is probably one of the most awesome ideas EVER! I mean if you know me at all you know Apps are a big part of my Happy Place. I have an App for nearly everything!

This App is no different, it not only let’s me create a Profile to connect with other Attendees but I can start planning my BlogHer experience right now! It includes a list of the Exhibitors, Maps of where they will be, Agenda for the Conference, Speakers, News Alerts and So Much MORE!

I have been using this App daily since downloading it and I know that once I arrive in NYC it will most likely be my most valuable tool throughout.

 

 

We Get To Party?

Okay so yeah Blog Conferences are all about learning, connecting, networking…blah blah blah. Get this though! BlogHer is also about being social and getting to know brands and other influencers in natural settings. That means We Get To Party!!

I was in total fan mode when I started to receive emails inviting me to Brand Presentations, Exclusive Events and yup – Parties!

So, now that I have my Registration, Social Connects and even an App to keep me grounded it was time to start scheduling my party time. Here are the ones I plan on giving my full attention…will you be there?

Evening At The Expo – Thursday, July 16th

 

I'm going to the Evening at the Expo at #BlogHer15!

 

This is the party that will start all the fun. The very first event of #BlogHer15 is slated to be an experience to remember and I know I can’t miss it.

The Multi-Culti Party – Thursday, July 16th

Right after the Expo event I am going to be headed over to the MultiCulti party where we will have the chance to sit down and experience a bit of culture BlogHer style….

 

I'm going to the Multi-Culti Party at #BlogHer15!

 

 

The Voices of The Year Reception – Friday, July 17th

 

I'm going to the Voices of the Year Reception at #BlogHer15!

 

I have been excited about this since I saw the notification for #FemVertising Awards voting a few weeks ago. I can’t wait to see the Honorees and get to see and connect with their amazing work.

Killer Karaoke – Friday, July 17th

 

I'm going to Killer Karaoke at #BlogHer15!

 

Okay, Okay I know…if I’m such an introvert why would I want to get up a sing in front of a couple 100 BlogHer Attendees. What can I say: Music Sets Me Free!! I can so excited for this party and can’t wait to give my best notes and probably a few misplaced lyrics a place to shine 🙂

McDonald’s Closing Party – Saturday, July 18th

 

BH15_ClosingParty_0

 

Of course we all know the saying “Save The Best for Last” well BlogHer is taking that to an entirely NEW level with a CloseOut Party that I am sure will become something I talk, chat and Blog about for months to come…LOL

    So cool and excited for you to go to BlogHer! Sounds amazing and I hope you learn a lot and have some amazing fun! Hopefully some day I am writing a similar post on my own blog and I hope I am just as excited as you are right now.
    My recent post Amazing STEM Activities for Middle School Kids

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks so much Liz! I can’t believe it’s less than a week away! I am sure you will be going sooner rather than later and I can’t wait to be just as excited for you! 😀

  • Mrs. AOK

    I'm so excited for you!! I wish I could go, I planned on going, but life. I'll share with you as soon as I can. 😉
    I cannot wait to hear what you learn while you're there.
    XOXO

    • MrsTee Post author

      Hi!! Thanks so much! I wish you could TOO!! It would be 10x the fun because we would definitely rock that conference 😀 Know that I’m here if you need me…oh you know I will be sharing 😀 xoxo

  • @chicmompreneur

    I am so jealous!! I must say, lol, that is awesome, it is on my wishlist and i know I will have to take the leap eventually and just go…Have fun and I cant wait to read about your adventures…

    • MrsTee Post author

      I hope you get to go soon!! Thanks so much and I will definitely be sharing throughout and after so Stay Tuned 😀

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Karissa!! I’ve done smaller ones too but I am definitely excited for something on a larger scale. Stay Tuned I’ll be sharing during and after.

  • Lowanda J

    That's awesome! I'm excited for you! I definitely don't see you as an introvert. You made me comfortable the first time I met you. I was the one who was worried I would seem like a stalker. When you connect online and then see the person face-to-face, it can be nerve wrecking. I can't wait to see all you have to share when you return. Enjoy your trip and that last party….OH My!!!! Boys to Men!!!! Yes, definitely!!! Have fun!
    My recent post Currently…

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Lowanda!! I’m so happy you felt that way. I try to be sure my awkwardness doesn’t rub off on anyone else…LOL Oh be sure to follow while I’m there – I’m going to be sharing during as well 😀 Yes girl my poor little High School self is gonna loose her mind..LOL

  • The Disney Chef

    Congrats! I've made it my goal to go to a blogger event at some point in the next year and I'm crazy excited. Until then, I'll follow along whistfully via you. LoL! – Jerusha, TheDisneyChef.com

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks so much Jerusha!! Well I plan on sharing as much as possible across my Social Media networks so be sure to follow 😀

  • sriches

    Don't be anxious! You go and enjoy yourself! I have attended loads of blogger conferences in the UK and enjoyed them all. BlogHer will be awesome – you go and rock it in style! 🙂 Sim xx

    • MrsTee Post author

      I\’m getting better. I think all my planning is helping me calm down a bit 🙂 Thanks so much Sim!! 😀

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Christine! I\’m sure you will get there soon and yes Stay Tuned because I am definitely sharing the adventure 😀

  • rattlesandheels

    BlogHer sounds like fun! I planned to attend but I got such an amazing offer that weekend through my blog that I couldn't turn down. Enjoy!

    • MrsTee Post author

      I am so excited!! Wow, congrats on the opportunity you received! Sometimes we have to make those kinds of decisions…there is always next year 😀 Thanks again!

  • Jonna

    How exciting! I was planning on attending this year, but I just couldn't do it. But I'll be going to Blogalicious and I'm excited about that. Congratulations and I'm sure you'll have a great time. That app is cool too!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Yes, Jonna! I’m about to burst the closer I get to leaving. Oh no! I have Blogalicious on my Must Attend list as well…not sure it’ll be this year but I definitely want to get to at least one 😀 Oh yes, the app is so helpful! Love It 😀

  • glossedmimi

    I went to BlogHer a few years ago and drug my feet this year so I won't make it but you will have lots of fun and meet amazing people. I met so many introverted people it was almost awkward to me because when I went no one was saying outright that they were socially awkward in real life so I was confused. Now I totally get it. Those groups helped me as well, get familiar with a few faces before I got there. Have fun!

    • MrsTee Post author

      I know it had to be amazing. I will. Haha! Well I’m not hiding it at all…I’m not what you would call awkward but trust me inside my nerves are going crazy! I am definitely grateful for the groups to take a bit of the pressure away. Thanks so much!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Bernetta! I know you will get there! Yes, I am definitely sharing throughout so Stay Tuned 😀

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Louisa! I am sure I will…it really is an investment in your site, your brand and your vision. I was so happy to cover the Registration. Hubby has definitely helped me with getting there and more but just being able to do that was a bit of a goal met kinda moment for me. Thanks so much!

  • Krystal

    I'll be at another conference that weekend so sad to miss this one! 🙂 They are not that overwhelming – you will love it!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Oh No! I’m sure you will have an amazing experience there as well…thanks for the encouragement 😀

  • Fi Ni Neachtain

    BlogHer sounds like a great conference and I hope you have the best time there! I attended my first blogging conference in London last month and like you I was quite anxious about it but honestly it was fine. Most of the bloggers there were so lovely and it was such a great experience too. Have a blast 🙂

  • Tyra

    I am sure it is going to be a great time and you will learn so much! Be sure to report back to us on the event and little nuggets! 🙂
    My recent post Embracing Independence: My Solo International Adventure

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Tyra! I\’m sure it will be to – I know I\’m stressing over nothing 🙂 I certainly will!

  • Jeana

    Enjoy your first BlogHer experience! Be prepared to run around like a mad woman (literally, wear your sneakers girl!). Try to grab a buddy and split up tasks if needed.

  • crysta911

    I heard there will be a few stars. I'm bummed that I didn't sign up for this one.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Yes! Gwyneth Paltrow among others…plus an amazing Close Out Party so yes I’m a bit stoked! LOL They pretty much deliver each year so I’m sure if you make it to a future one you will not be disappointed 🙂

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Renee! I had this on my Goal List for a bit now and I am so excited to finally get to check it off. I hope you get to go soon too 🙂 Thanks again and yes you know I will be sharing…here and on my Channel 😀

    • MrsTee Post author

      I hope so too. Now don’t get me wrong I paid for the Registration with my site but the Hubby has definitely come in full force to help me get there and have a great experience 😀

  • Jaime Nicole

    Oh my goodness you are going to have so much fun! Please behave yourself and learn things in between parties. Remember to bring back all of the great information you get and share it with those of us who aren't going to make it to the conference (or the parties) this year! Safe travels!
    My recent post Considering A Family Cross Country RV Trip?

    • MrsTee Post author

      Haha! I know Jaime and I am almost bursting with the excitement! I will definitely behave and try to learn a bit in addition to my fun – LOL Oh trust me I will be sharing recap posts but stay tuned during because I am also going to Vlog and Scope 😀 Thanks so much!!

  • Tiffani

    This is so awesome! Have a wonderful time and enjoy every moment! Can’t wait to read your post about the conference…hoping I can attend next year. Have fun! 🙂

  • Poised in Print

    This is going to be such an exciting trip!!! I've wanted to go to BlogHer for quite some time but the trek from the Middle East is a bit far. 🙂 You're going to meet some amazing bloggers and connect with brands. I can't wait to hear about your experiences. Take lots of pictures.

    • MrsTee Post author

      I know! I get to go back to NYC plus meet some amazing Bloggers and learn…total Win! I can imagine that would be some trip for sure. I can’t wait to share and oh yes my camera will definitely be In Hand 😉

  • chbernard

    You are going to have such an awesome time but I would also be a bit nervous, totally understandable! This sounds like such an awesome event and something that would be awesome to attend! I have no idea how much something like this is but maybe that can be my goal for any blog earnings to go towards attending a blog conference!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Yes, I am trying hard not to let my nerves get the best of me because that could easily take away from the experience. It’s a bit more pricey than most conferences but the fun, information and connections they provide makes it totally worth it. I hope you get to attend one soon 😀

  • Stacey

    And I will be there, too! And I don't know anyone 🙂 Would love to meet! I did not know about the Awesome Attendee group – going to cheek it out now! thanks!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Yay!! Hopefully we can connect and meet. Are you on the BlogHer App? Be sure to look me up so we can see if we are attending any of the same events 😀 Oh and don’t forget to check the OFFICIAL BlogHer Facebook Page – Going To BlogHer Official

  • @scggirl

    All blog conferences are exciting but BlogHer is like blogging mecca! I wish I could go this year!!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Esme! I’ve gone to a few smaller events to but all in preparation for this 😀 Thanks so much and I will!

    • MrsTee Post author

      I can’t wait to share Kita!! I’m already planning in my mind…LOL I think every Blogger should attend a major Conference at least once…for me BlogHer was definitely that one on my list.

  • sweetmomma

    What an exciting adventure your about to embark on!
    Can't wait to read all about it when your back 🙂

  • strollersavvy

    Awesome! I hope to go one of these years! I am sure you will learn a ton and have a blast!

  • WanderingCarol

    Do you mean you ARE a solo kind of girl? You'll still have fun. I went to BlogHer once and really enjoyed it. Let us know how it goes.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Haha! No I’m really not…I need or prefer to have people around me to buffer my shyness…LOL I know it’s hard to believe but I really am kinda shy. I’m sure I will – I’m determined to push past it 😀 I definitely will!

  • dia

    Yeah! Congrats to you! I am not an introvert, but I can understand your feeling about having to actually go out and "REALLY" talk to people. This seems like a great opportunity for you to meet other like-minded people and to introduce yourself and services to great brands! I like that the app allows you to virtually set up your BlogHer experience. Have fun! Congrats again!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks so much Dia! Yes, connecting online does takes things to a whole new level but I have a mix of anxiety and excitement…LOL It really is an amazing opportunity and I don’t want to let it pass me by. Yes, the App has been a life saver for me…Thanks again and I plan on it 😀

  • Danielle K

    How cool that you get to go to BlogHer! I've only ever been to a small blog conference, but it was a lot of fun. I was totally nervous about talking to strangers, but it was great and I had an awesome time. I'm sure you're going to have so much fun!

    • MrsTee Post author

      So Cool Danielle!! Same Here! Before now I\’ve only been to a BootCamp which is like a short intimate mini conference so this is definitely a totally new level…LOL I am looking forward to it for sure!

  • Kim

    Aw Hell Yeah I'll be there! Happy First BlogHer 🙂 Don't forget to give yourself permission to take some downtime (in your hotel room, in the park, in a bathroom stall, whatever). It can be a little overwhelming at times, but if you let yourself recharge, you'll do fine!

      Haha! Yay Kim! See you there. Oh yes, I plan on trying to explore a bit during my downtime…I\’ve missed my NYC home 😀
