Kidlitosphere Conference Meme
If you're still sitting on the fence, you've only got a couple of days to get your registration in for the 2009 Kidlitosphere Conference! Decide already! Come join the party!
I attended the first conference, but not last year's. I'll be there this year! YAY!!! Here's the attendee meme that Mother Reader started around:
Why did you decide to attend the Kidlitosphere Conference?
I wanted to be part of the "in" crowd and meet all the rock star bloggers! It also sounded daring and just a little bit risky to fly to Chicago to meet people in person who I knew only from their blogs.
Who was most like their blog? Who was least like their blog?
Go figure...EVERYONE was like their blog! We leak out so much personality when we write that this should not come as a surprise.
What surprised you at the conference?
How much fun it was. I'm not usually comfortable in a crowd of folks I don't know well, but it was truly like being with old friends.
What will you always remember about the conference?
Meeting Tricia of The Miss Rumphius Effect and Gregory K. of GottaBook, and making the contacts that resulted in presenting about blogging at NCTE with Jen Robinson, Liz Burns, and Susan Thomsen (and almost Kelly Herold, but work got in her way).
Did you blog about the conference?
Last year when we couldn't make it to Portland, the Central Ohio Bloggers got together and bought books.
