Summer is all about get-togethers, and on social media these events come in the form of conventions. For example, BlogHer - a blogging network community where I share my blog posts - posted this NaBloPoMo prompt for June 2:
"Are you going to the BlogHer conference in July? What part are you most excited about? What are your fears?"
Yeah, no, I will not be going. But, it's in NYC, me! I'd love to visit NYC... but not in July. Also, I'm not much of a writer, much less a mover and a shaker in the blogging world. So, yes, I think it would be kinda cool to attend the BlogHer Conference, however, I fear, there is no budget for this type of travel. That said, I'd put going this Summer on my wish list.
More conferences I wish finances would allow me the chance to attend with my kids this Summer:
- VidCon... yup. It's in July too, and I don't care if I'm an oldster among an ocean of youth-tubers, seeing some of my favorite YouTube creators would be pretty great.
- SDCC... San Diego Comic Con, for those living under a rock. Anywhere some nerd named Chris Hardwick can be found in the wild, actually.
- LeakyCon... which, I just discovered is now dubbed GeekyCon!? Whaaat?? This is a problem; I don't handle change well. Anyway, I love all things Harry Potter. So, duh, I'd want to go to this event.
I get tired just thinking about it. Nap time, anyone?
