It’s been two years since I’ve attended Blogalicious and I am sooooo looking forward to it. I had a great experience in Miami which was the first Blogalicious I attended and I can just imagine what this years conference will bring. I’m looking forward to connecting with all my blogging & twitter buddies that I converse with all the time and haven’t seen since Miami as well as making new friends to keep up with in the Blogosphere and the twitterverse. I’m super excited this being my first trip to Las Vegas and as I did for Blogalicious 2010 I’m starting off “JENtober” right and celebrating my birthday while away also. So… Blogalicious being right before my birthday, why not celebrate while in Las Vegas. Blogalicious takes place at the Red Rock Resort & Spa, need I say more?
I wanted to list ten things I want to accomplish while in Las Vegas attending Blogalicious 2012 and here they are…
1.) Visit the Las Vegas Strip, which is a planned conference event so that worked out. Yay Me! The strip looks amazing in advertisements whether it’s tv, print or online. Remember, Whatever happens In Vegas…
2.) Go to a casino and play on a slot machine. Can you believe I’m a native New Yorker and have never been to Atlantic City, Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun! I’ve never really gambled. I know…(lotto not included)
3.) Elope, go to a chapel and tie the knot! Problem with this one is I don’t think hubby who won’t be in attendance will approve. Ha! I wonder if an impersonator would stand in and then we go our separate ways… After all it wouldn’t be legal or mean a thing. You have to forgive me, I’m having a “Hangover” moment. Lol!
4.) Have a moment of “ME” time to clear my mind and get to the point where I’m ready to make certain decisions. A moment of solitude away from the kiddos which rarely happens. Says the mama who felt horrible leaving them and was on the verge of tears when departing!
5.) Have FUN!!!!! There are so many planned events that seem like it will be never ending fun all weekend long.
6.) RELAX… I know there are endless social events going on during the conference and I plan to attend each one however, I will take a moment to relax. Sit by the pool and blog, hit the sauna for a few minutes, I may even hit the gym… Who knows! Yes, these things relax me.
7.) CELEBRATE “JENtober” and take a pre birthday shot and bring a Las Vegas shot glass back home. I have a thing about shot glasses, I collect them from all over the place.
8.) Enjoy my “boobs” Yup you heard right! I’m no longer a nursing mommy! In 2010 I was still nursing mini me and failed to bring a breast pump or prepare for the discomfort that would take over while in Miami. I was also trying to wean mini me but, being engorged was no fun! Frequent showers and a support system held me together! Thank you Mami2Mommy!
9.) Be the BEST Blogalicious Social Squad Member I can be! It’s my business to assist in helping this conference any way I can as well as sprinkling my social media butterfly fairy dust on everyone. I want to get to know EVERYONE! Networking is my thing… As a Marketing Professional it’s second nature to me.
10.) Be a sponge and soak up all the knowledge that is being thrown at me to be able to better build my blog brand, promote it and create a roadmap of success for myself. Maybe with the roadmap, I’ll stop procrastinating and being so indecisive! *wishful thinking*
I’m sure Blogalicious weekend will be all that I envision and more, you know I’ll post and give you the play by play. Until next time, stay tuned…
