Hi, my name is Heather and I have a blog conference addiction. I also have a blog addiction. And a photography addiction. And a baby addiction. I'm pretty OCD all around, actually...
This post is serving two purposes... one is the Letter H for the A B See Photomeme over at the Homeschool Post; and the other is ... well.... read along...
I thought for sure after Blissdom that I'd be OK when BlogHer came and went. I figured that two blog conferences for the year was enough. I really wanted to go to Relevant in October of 2010 - in PA... and BlogHer was in New York (another impossible travel spot that would require much more resources and begging for sponsors). I knew I had to pick one or the other. However... as soon as all my imaginary friends started tweeting that they were at the boarding gates and heading to the Big Apple, my heart sank.
That's when sweet Robin (on the right below) reminded me about her BlogHop '10. Just in time for BlogHer10. So at least I can hang with my homies virtually... which is mostly all I can ever do. Sadly.
I've had the privilege of meeting miss Robin twice (and sweet Mrs. Amber, too - isn't she lovely? She's on the left. That would be MY right.). Hopefully I'll have many more opportunities in the future - to hang with both of them... and all of my other wonderful imaginary friends!
As long as my blogging heart continues to spill out in digital form... I'll be hoping to attend at least two conferences each year. Wish I could do them all. Funds and family just won't permit any more of a commitment than that. Last year I did Type-A Mom. This year I did Blissdom and Lord willing, I'll be at Relevant (in my shiny Chevy - riding 5 deep).
I'm the queen of long road trips. Bring on the travel money, baby - this Texan 'ain't skeered... and neither is her posse:
So welcome to my little corner of the BlogHop 2010 party! It sure beats crying in your bag of Cheetos about why you can't be at BlogHer, right?
Here's a brief intro about what this blog is about:
I'm a homeschool mom in her late 30's - raising a set of tweens, a 1 year old, and a soon-to-be tiny infant (pregnant again, and yes, I know what causes that).
I live in Texas.
I steal french fries.
I cook gourmet meals (when I feel like it).
I take peekshurs.
I love my iPhone.
I have been blogging (and trapping Google searchers) since 2005 and am pretty much the last ancient dinosaur blog that hasn't migrated to Word Press where all the cool people are.
I curate for Blissreads and run another site called the Homeschool Post (that has 20 awesome authors).
I blog about everything under the sun. From a homeschool mom's perspective, of course. Which is a very eclectic viewpoint; almost as eclectic as my curriculum. But not quite.
I don't use proper grammar. Unless I'm taking a test.

So how about you? Where did you surf in from? What's your blog link? How long have you been blogging? Have you been to any blog conferences yet?
I can't wait to meet you all!
