Then the weirdest, most unexpected thing happened and I was gifted the opportunity to go. I won’t say how or who… the point is, I get to go. And I was told with 3 days notice.
Normally, I’m prepared. I’m a planner. If I’d known a month ago I would have done everything like ordered my business cards, planned my outfits, picked out my schedule, asked off of work for a long weekend… now, I get none of that.
No cards. No idea which sessions I’ll attend. I have a full day of work tomorrow and then will make the 3 hour drive to Chicago where I’ll check in hopefully before 10p to try and rest before two non-stop days of networking, conferencing, and hopefully reinvigorating myself into blogging.
This adaptation to wordpress has been rough for me. I’ve been working on it when I can, but I’m so unhappy with the “newness” and limited customization and lack of general know-how on tweaking a WP blog that I’ve been completely disheartened from blogging.
I’m not sure what to expect from BlogHer 2013, but I’m hoping a new vision for my blog and some refocused energy will be in order.
