It is time for the annual BlogHer conference and this year it will be in San Diego at the San Diego Marriott and Convention Center! BlogHer’s mission is “to create an opportunity for all kinds of women bloggers to pursue exposure, education, and community.” I am excited to be attending my first conference and thought that sharing some locals’ BlogHer posts would offer great information and insight. Enjoy the reads and PLEASE leave a comment below. We look forward to meeting our online friends and making new friends, too. Hope to see you there!
