You know how when the middle of May rolls around you start seeing all these "Are you going to Blogher?" posts. And posts that tell you that you won't feel weird going even if you don't know anyone. Posts that talk about how much fun it was last year (and the year before) and how great the cocktail party is, and how everyone was kissing everyone else?
Every other blog you read has a button that says "I'm going to Blogher" or "I'm speaking at Blogher" and you kinda feel left out, right?
And you're sitting there reading this stuff and thinking "There is no freaking way I can afford to go to Blogher." Yeah, me too. None. Plane fare, conference tickets, hotel rooms, food.... it all ads up to a 3 day weekend that could cost $1500. Totally out of my price range.
So, because I'm a terrible person and a misanthrope, I made a button for the rest of us. The people that aren't going, can't afford to go, but still want to be noticed.
I already put it up on my blog. I'm not going to say anything. I'm just going to wait until someone notices. Because I'm bad like that!
If you want to borrow the button, go right ahead. I am going to make a second one that says "I"m not going to Blogher" later. If you want that one, let me know.
