the question of the moment...

are any of you going to blogher this year?

Ever since I found out it was in San Francisco this year my wee little brain has been clicking away to figure out if I can afford it, if I should go, if it would be worth it, if I would have fun...

You see... San Fran is not really that far from Portland... and I kind of like San Francisco...

and I have some friends kind of near there... and I thought maybe I could convince them to come visit me in the city if I went...

but then I thought.... what if it's like one big chicky blogger party after hours the whole time and I have no time to see anyone?

and then I remembered that I don't know if I even know anyone who is going....

and then I remembered that I didn't even know any of the people I might know that might be going...

and then anxiety began to get the best of me and I devolved into brow furrowing and wondering.

SO...

Anyone planning on being there?

you know, truthfully, even though it is reasonably close to where I am,
probably not.

bellevelma said...

being as I live on the east coast, and am more or less broke, probably not.

I would go except it seems that I have a penis...

Well, I was all booked for last year and had to cancel at the last minute.

SF would be cheaper for me here in Vancouver, BUUT I don't have my daycare job and so no extra pennies.

Sooooo I am hoping to go...I want to go. I need to 'discuss' it with dh.

Hmmmm - checking the distance from Melbourne to San Francisco .....

And I'm delighted to know the health level in the House of Kaos is improving!!

I went last year and will likely go again to some part of it -- mainly because I am planning to be in SF then anyway (randomly). I'd be happy to answer questions you may have about what it was like... you've got my address...

Best,
J

What about bloghim?

Marcus said...

Why not have your own blogger party? That way at least you will know the people that are there. ;)

CamiKaos said...

marcus: I've been toying with having a big bad blogger tiki party... but the logistics are painful...

travis: I bloghim all the time...

OTJ: I may just do that once I have composed an eloquent statement that reflects what my questions are...

David: Oh it's not really all *that* far now is it?

Crunchy: When I talked to Mr. Kaos about it he started talking about going with me and bringing the little Kaos...

Mr. Fab: Tuck it ;)

bv: I hear that.

Mie: Yeah... somehow I kind of figured that.

stephanie said...

So, there's me and I think Katydidnot & my bff MamaMilton will be bunking with...We're a party unto ourselves - you're invited to join us :) I have no idea what we're getting into other than a weekend in San Francisco without responsibilities...

Cami,

A great many of my bloggy pals went last year. Most of them had a good time.

Ha... some of them even suggested that I should go this year... but I will be going to the "Blogging While Brown" event in Atlanta the weekend prior.

i think it would be cool, but i don't see me flying over from cardiff. unless
a) flights are around £100; and
b) the flight takes less than two hours; and
c) my boss lets me count it as work time.

i think that third one is going to be the main blocker.

Lisa Milton said...

See how optimistic and organized Stephanie is - she is NOT a bad mom or friend.

I want to go play in SF with all the fine ladies, but I have to figure a lot out first. Like, we may be moving to Eugene right about then.

All this thinking makes my head hurt.

And I need to find some cash.

See how indecisive and useless I am?

Lindy said...

Ooooooh!! I sooo badly want to go but I'm a poor SAHM oh and I live in the UK and well flights are expensive although the exchange rate is awesome right now...hmm let me work on the hubs. I wonder if I can trade off blowjobs (although being in a long term relationshop when I say blowjobs I really mean the PROMISE of blowjobs)for air miles....

angel said...

if i win the lotto- i'm SO there cami!!!

CamiKaos said...

angel: I'm rooting for you babe.

lindy: didn't somebody make that deal with their hubby to go last year?

Lisa: yeah, I am in the findng $$ stage of the planning process too.

holly: yeah, i think you're right... that is the sticky point.

gf: yeah, too many conventions in such a small space of time... right now a convention mr. Kaos may be going to just prior could cause some problems for my attendance... although... if he goes to that conference K & I will go too... cause there would be mouse ears involved...

stephanie: if I go I am so gonna track you guys down!

amy: HI. welcome...

sybil law said...

M... Not I.
Not even interested, really.

Avery Gray said...

Two questions--when is it, and do you have to be a BlogHer advertiser? Because if not, and if it's going on the same time we're planning on being down there anyhow, then heck yeah!

But I sorta doubt it.
