I have a confession to make.
Over the last several weeks I have felt deeply ambivalent about my plans to attend the BlogHer conference in Chicago this year.
When I bought a ticket three months ago I had no idea that the dates would fall right in the middle of the time we are embarking on a major move into a new home. And that they would fall during a week when my husband expects to be back working 14-hour days. And that they would fall just before the week Graham's babysitter has booked holidays.
We have so much going on during that time period, that the last few weeks I started to think that the logistics of actually skipping out to Chicago in the middle of it all was just an impossible indulgence.
And so this past weekend, despite the fact that I had already made plans to car pool with a great bunch of Toronto bloggers and room with this lovely lady, I started to seriously think about just selling the ticket and taking care of the mountain of business I face here at home.
Then I got an e-mail yesterday...
So...umm...yeah...I guess I'm going.
And...umm...I guess I'm going to read a commentary post in front of about...gulp...1,000 people at the Community Keynote.
