BlogHer ‘09: In Real Life

BlogHer ‘09 is now open for registration!

This year’s conference is being held at The Chicago Sheraton & Towers from July 23rd – July 25th. Special room rates of $199/night is being offered to BlogHer attendees on a first-come first serve basis and registration fees are $198 for the entire conference including cocktail parties.

The theme will be In Real Life.

“One of the number one reasons we all attend BlogHer every year, whether coming for the first time or as an old-timer, is to meet our online community “in real life”. So after five years we think it’s a great time to celebrate the fact that our blogging, whether personal, professional or political, has brought us real work, real friends, real satisfaction and is most definitely a significant part of our real life!”

I remember last year when I decided not to attend the one in San Francisco and ended up pouting the entire weekend. Well, not this year. I’ve decided that if I want to be a serious blogger, then I need to start attending these events. I just didn’t realize how expensive they were!

Anyone want to sponsor me? ;-) Are you going?

    Holy smokes, I had no idea there was such an expensive registration fee. Too bad for me, I’m just a couple hours away but that’s too pricey for me.

    I haven’t gone before either (and have been so jealous of those who did) – so I’m determined to go next year also. Especially since Chicago is so close to home. :)
