How NOT to Prepare for a Blogging Conference

This is the third year that I've gotten to go to the Blissdom blogging conference here in Nashville. You'd think by now I would have learned something. And yet, before hand, these are the things I do that are fine for life in general, but won't get me anywhere in the blogging.*

  1. Schedule doctor's appointments and homeschool events the week before.
  2. Try to squeeze five days of homeschooling into four.
  3. Spend all "free time" looking at various things you might want to get for next year's curriculum.
  4. Deal with plumbers for two days.
  5. Forget to write any blog posts for most of the week.
  6. Forget to write that "About Me" page you meant to write last year.
  7. Stay up too late every night so your stamina is shot.
  8. Leave the kitchen a wreck, so that you have to call and apologize to your husband on your way to Opryland.
I'm sure I came up with several others that I've already forgotten. I had a very fun time though and will return with actual information that I learned soon.

*Not that I'm, um, actually trying to get anywhere, so that might be the point.

How is Blissdom? I'd like to make it there one of these days.
