Sadly, I'm not going to BlogHer, though 2 of my colleagues are (@SallieB and @EmmieJ).
With all this talk about PR blackouts and blogging with integrity, here are some predictions.
First, some goofball marketing/PR flack who hasn't paid a lick of attention is going to stand up and shill a product or service or something in the middle of a panel discussion AGAIN - you know, thinking that it's just a subtle plug when everyone in the room will know what's going on - and get absolutely destroyed for it.
Then some male PR idiot is going to hit on a mom blogger - AGAIN - oblivious to the fact that these moms talk with each other. Yes, you read that right. I'm told it's happened before.
But finally, and most importantly - a lot of people are going to have an absolutely incredible time. They will learn a lot, renew friendships, start new ones, get more swag than you thought possible, and spend time with each other in an amazing city.
Hopefully my flackitudinous brethren and sistren will be smart enough to shut the heck up and stay in the background. I've given my colleagues just two words of advice: HAVE FUN.
