I have heard so many good things about the Blogalicious Conference from last years event that I’d really kick myself if I missed it! I’m all about networking and meeting everyone face to face that I talk to on a daily basis in the blogosphere. I think it’s an AWESOME opportunity to connect and I love that it’s all about diversity. Now let me give you all of my selfish reasons for wanting to register early for Blogalicious 2010.
1.) Okay believe it or not, I’ve never been to Miami! I’m a born and raised New Yorker and even though I now reside in North Carolina, it’s the farthest South I’ve ever been (state side). (Besides the Caribbean) *sigh*
2.) I usually take the family with me to blog conferences but, this time I think the kids are staying with hubby at home so Mommy can get some “ME” time. That’s a rare thing now a days for me! I can’t wait!
3.) I can’t wait to learn as much as I can by day and party, party, party with Cocoamommy at night! We’ll both be celebrating our birthdays in Miami. Libras Rock! Woot! Woot!
4.) I know if I register early there is no way I’ll let anything get in the way of me & Miami in October. I’ll have something to look forward to and work towards. I’ll have motivation!
5.) I get the enjoy all the amenities of the Ritz Carlton Hotel! I was SOLD when I heard about the Marble Baths and Goose Down & non allergenic Foam Pillows! Baths & Sleeping will be blissful! Oh I can’t forget we’ll have a view of the beach!
6.) One of my FAVORITE reasons is that Caribbean Carnival is that weekend too and I’d love to be able to see it and participate in the festivities. My family is Jamaican and I’ve been to carnival in Canada (Caribana), Caribbean Day Parade in New York on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn (Labor Day Weekend), I’ve been to carnival in St. Thomas, USVI. I just love carnival!!!!! This will be a GREAT experience for me!
7.) Okay this reason may be one of my most selfish! I’ve been nursing my son since birth and he’s now two and a half. Two years old was my cut off to wean him but, I’m not strong enough to stick to it. When I deny him he gets really upset and has tantrums and I ultimately end up giving in when I can’t deal with him crying anymore. I figure a few days away from me and the boobs and maybe he’ll not want it when I return and I can do the whole cold turkey weaning! He does fine when I’m not around but when I am around he’s so dependent upon it. Especially at nap time and bed time. It’s wishful thinking!
8.) I NEED a vacation!
9.) I get to have one of the best birthdays I’ve had and I know I’ll have a ball!
10.) Did I mention I needed “ME” time! I see spas, shopping, and nightlife in my future! I lack a social life at the moment. My social life currently consists of Twitter, Facebook, and Blogs! I love social networking, I don’t think it wouldn’t hurt to get out now and then and socialize with people personally.
Well there you have it, my top ten reasons I’m registering early for Blogalicious 2010! I’ll see you there if you’re going!
