There you have it. Which one should I go to for each session? Which ones would you go to? And which one do you think I will wake up in time for?


  1. oh, please.
    please do not ask me which seminars i'm going to.
    i really don't know how i'm going to decide.
    i was hoping you would have the answers!

  2. I think the proposed seminars provide an excellent opportunity for you to catch up on your sleep after the parties and such.

  3. I can only make it to the cocktail parties this year. :)

  4. I have no idea what I am doing yet. I have time, before I need to figure it out... really, I do!

    I am looking forward to it, though. I like your blog, and wow, you are coming all the way from Austrailia to attend Blogher?

    Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I guess I'll see you there. Are you going to the party on Thurs night?


  5. tiff: No, decision-making is your job this week.

    psychicgeek & vered: Glad we're all on the same page.

    tlc: Let me know when you figure it out! Yep, coming from Australia. I'll be at the Newbie Party and the People's Party on Thursday night. See you there!

  6. PsychicGeek,Com has it pretty well summed up!

  7. #1 - #5. Because I'll be up there, babling like an idiot.
