Wowza am I gonna be busy! Or should I say WE are going to be busy. My friend Jen is coming along again. I think she’s attended 3 BlogHer’s with me now. She’s not actually a blogger (yet) but I’ve been slowly converting her. After last year she took the leap to twitter. This year, well, she’s helping me cross something off my bucket list. We are soft launching a travel blog starting with our trip to NYC together. Don’t expect a regular blog schedule there. It’s just a space for us to archive our travels, share our thoughts and review places we’ve been. It’s a complete work in process and will be for some time but I thought I’d invite you to take a look as we build it together.

Ok, must sleep. Oh! and pack! Crap. Haven’t done that yet.

Here’s my food journal for today and if you are interested click click here to see BlogHer’s of the past. :)

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

Discussion

There are 5 comments so far.

    Have a great time, Roni. I’m excited because you’ll be inspired and invigorated at the convention, which will lead to lots of cool blog posts.

    I don’t know if you’re like me, but if you are – make sure you give yourself permission to enjoy your child-free weekend with no nagging guilt. You deserve it!

    And bring the energy of the convention back with you to share with your family and with us!

    Sounds very exciting Roni! Love attending things like that – I find it so invigorating! Maybe someday I’ll get to experience it too, but I have to get rid of this job first (I’m working on it). Have a great time!

    Yay! Sorry we won’t be there together to run the 5k again. Say hi to Jen and I expect a full report…
