Hard to believe, it seems like only yesterday that I was there with more than 5,000 other bloggers at BlogHer 12 in New York City. But, it's that time of year. Time to start thinking about BlogHer 2013, the 9th annual conference, which takes place in Chicago at the Sheraton Chicago and McCormick Place, July 25-27, 2013.
Unfortunately, not everyone who wants to come can afford all the costs involved. So, in this post I'm going to tell you how you can volunteer in exchange for a full conference pass. What a great deal this is!
As you can see from all the pictures from last year in New York in this post, this is most definitely a working business trip that's also insanely busy as well as a whole lot of fun.

|The Lands' End Night School Off-Site Event Was a Blast!|
|The annual CheeseBurgHer closing party is a must-attend|
|Delicious food like this was abundant at BlogHer 12|
Note: The work for a free conference program does not include your travel or hotel expenses, but volunteering will knock a whopping $407 off your total bill for attending.

- Mic wranglers at during workshops and panel discussions

- Floating volunteers to help wherever you are directed
