How to Tell When It's a Week till the BlogHer 2012 New York Women & Moms Blogging Conference


Ever really thought about it? How can you tell when BlogHer is just a week away?

Okay. I'm just going to say it. All this excitement about BlogHer next weekend is -- for lack of a better word -- exciting. Actually it's also lots of other descriptions that start with the letter "E." Excellent, Exhilarating, Energizing, Educational, Eye-Opening and Epic. Oh yeah, and did I mention? Pretty darned Exhausting, too.

A 2011 giant soap carving, can't wait to see what brands have in store this year 
Yes, right now many of us attending are working even longer hours than usual to get ready for the most important conference of the year -- the big one we have been waiting for since the last one ended 12 months ago. Among other things, finalizing schedules that fit together like what seems like a 5,000 piece jigsaw puzzle amid all the frenetic energy it might be a good time for each of us to seek out some diversionary fun and blow off a little steam. 

That's why I wrote this therapeutic post for us women bloggers who will be descending on New York City beginning early this coming week, building to a crescendo when BlogHer 2012 officially begins with Night at The Expo on Thursday evening running through Sunday morning August 5.

Now let's get started with an entertaining fill-in-the-blank word game to take your mind off things for a little bit. You'll like this, really, so stop what you're doing right now and have fun for 15 minutes. To inspire you, I've included a handful of my own fill in the blank answers to the question, "How do you know that BlogHer is almost here?"

I know that BlogHer is almost here when...
  • My kids are eating breakfast cereal every night for dinner.
  • The laundry pile starts resembling The Matterhorn at Disneyland.
  • Our dog starts having accidents in the house because Mom forgets to walk him.
  • I check Twitter, Facebook and email even before saying good morning DH.
  • Organizing my BlogHer schedule has taken on a life of its own, 24/7 task.
You get the idea. Now it's your turn to have at it. Leave a comment below this post to add all your own ideas on  completing this sentence. All of us going to BlogHer have our own twist on this one, so fire away, no holds barred. We can all laugh at ourselves together and release some tension! Just keep it clean ideally with G-rated comments, but no lower than PG-13 thoughts, since Mommy Blog Expert is a family-friendly blog.
