we need to seriously discuss what type of ticket i should buy.
when i went to blogher in san jose, i bought the whole conference shabang. and while some of the panels were interesting, i didn't feel like they gave me anything i was looking for at the time. i'm not looking to change my blog, or make it better or more interesting- i mean, i'm me and i'm pretty fucking interesting so there. but i remember feeling like the panels were more of a let down, or maybe not necessary for me.
but the parties? i LOVED the parties. i lived for the hanging out and talking and just the being with one another. so i vowed that at the next blogher, i would only buy the party pass.
and i did. in san francisco i paid for the cocktail receptions only. and i think the only reason i was disappointed at all was because i lived so close to SF, that i didn't stay at the hotel. i literally drove back and forth every single day and night for 4 days. no wait, 3 days. if i would have done anything differently there, i would have stayed AT the hotel with everyone. but i didn't feel like i missed out on the panels per se.
so now that it's in NEW.YORK.CITY next year, i'm wondering.... do i get the whole thing and be able to attend anything i want too? or do i just do the parties because really, that's all i want.. access to the faboo parties that are thrown and the chance to mingle and dance and hang out with everyone? or will i regret that i couldn't attend a panel if i wanted too- and will everyone i want to hang out with and spend time with BE in panels the whole time i'm not??? i think that's my biggest concern, is that i'll want to spend time with people who paid to attend the conference and so they'll be conferencing while i'll be like.. "dude, ditch class and party with meeee instead!!!"
so i ask you dear readers... what are you planning to do and why?
