BlogHer ’08. From what I’ve been reading, people either love it or hate it. Love the networking and camaraderie opportunities. Hate it if they feel left out or if there’s a sense that a conference is more important than the drama of real life.
I get the yin and yang of that. After all, I survived high school!
But there is a significant energy here, and not just because of the high estrogen content in the conference rooms.
Fresh ideas and possibilities and opportunities abound. A change of scenery and a time out from the obligations of daily motherhood and punditry can be inspiring, and for me that’s what it’s been.
I’ve got some fresh ideas, am energized by the opportunities and a little scared of the amount of work that lies ahead for some of the projects I have percolating in my head. Plus, I’m excited about the meeting one of my favorite celebrities of all time!
Not to mention how much work the MOMocrats have to do between now and the end of August to get ready for the Democratic National Convention.
I realize this is just a bunch of vague ramblings, but that’s all I’ve got at the moment. I do want to tell you about the session with the representatives of the McCain and Obama campaigns, but I want to write something that reflects something more than reiterating their talking points.
After all, that’s what a PunditMom does, right??
