What I hope… #BlogHer13

In just a couple days time I’ll be on a train headed to Chicago and the biggest blogging conference around. Yes, I’ll be attending my very first BlogHer conference! Like everyone else who is attending I am excited and looking to a fun filled weekend and just like all of the other newbies I’m a little nervous because I don’t fully know what to expect.

Right now at this very moment my biggest worry is if I will be able to see the amazing Queen Latifah at the VOTY awards! Seriously, this is important, first world problems because I only bought an expo/party pass. If not, then I’ll be the one hovering right outside the door peaking in the window or through the door barely cracked just to see a little bit. I sent out a tweet or two and posted my issues on Facebook so I’ll find out soon enough. Fingers crossed people!

Anyway, I have a lot of hopes and dreams for #BlogHer13.

i hope

I hope that I get to meet everyone that is on my lists of must meet. Bloggers who I admire and have followed since day one.

I hope that this little conference will help push my name & blog out there to the front where more people can see it.

I hope that I make some excellent and long lasting connections with some of the amazing brands that will be there.

I hope I can make connections with PR reps from various marketing firms that I leave a good impression on.

I hope that I get to meet Ree Drummond because I do love her show on Food Network.

I hope that I get to meet Queen Latifah because I’ve listened to her for years and she’s pretty awesome.

I hope that I can past my nervousness & introvertness (yes, I made that word up) and put myself out there a little bit.

I hope… well, I hope that I don’t make a fool out of myself. That would be terrible!

What about you? What are your hopes and dreams for BlogHer if you’re going this year?
