And now, after an almost six hour flight, a four hour scenic tour of beautiful Los Angeles with the amazing and generous Ana Lydia Monaco – founder of Latina Lifestyle Bloggers – and a two and a half hour road trip to cool and trendy San Diego, I am checked into BlogHer 2011. Registered like thousands of bloggers who may indeed be talented writers, just like me.
My badge makes my presence official.
The already provided swag and drink tickets excites me…for the fun to come and the connections to be made with brands.
I am present. I am here. I watch as a sea of women intertwine and mingle and conversations naturally flow as smoothly as the waves of the Pacific Ocean, which I can admire for hours.
And I don’t miss New York at all.
Not the glorified skyline. The vilified people. The gentrified neighborhoods.
I could get use to this life. I could get use to leaving that old life behind.
