Yeah, yeah, I’m goin’ ta BlogHer 2012,
It’ll be my first time, hangin’ with my tribe.
Travelin’ with my sista, Meg’s a newbie too,
She writes about adoption ‘n tryin’ for #2.

I’m Bereaved and Blessed. I used to be a mess,
Cuz tryin’ for another, can bring a lot of stress.
We finally got our rainbow, the journey is evolvin’,
I blog for love of writin’ now, as much as for resolvin’.

Voices on Friday, gonna hear some great ones.
Bet there’ll be tears and a lot of laughn’.
Speakin’ on Saturday, with Mel, Kir and Lori.
Bloggin’ after life change — that’s our story.

At BlogHer, sessions, meals and parties with our friends —
A webblogger’s’ Heaven, now you’re at BlogHer.
Where you’ll find writers who move you
and those who inspire you, let’s hear it for BlogHer
BlogHer, BlogHer

(adapted from/inspired by Jay-Z’s Empire State of Mind)

Please help me finish this song by adding one or more verses introducing yourself and/or about what you are looking forward to at BlogHer’s Annual Conference this August.

I’ve never been immortalized in a rap song before! (or any song, for that matter.)

Yet another talent you have! I bet all those years of limericking made you well-suited for the task.

I don’t have a verse, but I’ll be checking back to see what others contribute.

Love it!

Thanks Lori! You are definitely deserving of being immortalized in song! xoxo

So excited (and jealous, too) that you’ll be going this year. I regret not going last year, when BlogHer was in San Diego and no way I can make a trip this year to NYC.

One day….one day.

Thank you and totally understandable! I regret not actually attending the conference when it was here in Chicago in 2009, though I loved meeting Mel and some other ALI Bloggers for lunch that weekend. One day for sure and hopefully that day we will get to meet, if not before! Hope you are hanging in there. I continue to be so excited about and happy for you that you are finally expecting again after all you have been through. xoxo
