One of the things I really want to do this summer is make it to BlogHer ’13. This could mean a lot for me as a writer and blogger, but as with many other things in my life of recent, I’ve let the whole “get me there” thing slip to the back burner. Perhaps you can help take me to BlogHer ’13!

You see, I’d really like to go so I can meet some of my blogging friends (like Jen at Life With Levi) and make connections to bring you awesome things here on the Blog. I’ll also be able to learn about things like being a social media leader (hello, dream job), getting published (shh, yes, this IS a dream of mine), finding balance, and writing about the hard stuff (so I can learn how to blog a post that could get me a Voices of the Year award!). And the best part? I’ll get to see a keynote with one of my newest favorite women,  Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and the best-selling author of Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead (which we just discussed at a work women’s resource group!).

Sure, there will be parties, networking, good food, and fun. It would be a ‘lil break from the standard of working mom by day, blogger by night, Pittsburgher 24/7.  I feel like this opportunity would give me a personal kick in the butt to be a better mom, friend, and blogger.

I am going to do everything I can to pinch the pennies to make this happen, perhaps ask a friend or two if they’d be willing to share a room with me, and figure out travel. What can you do to help take me to BlogHer ’13? Let me know if you’d be interested in sponsoring the trip (I have ad space wide open!), or if you just have some inspiration to get me there. Or, if you’re that friend who will room with me. I promise to be fun!

Or…you can join The Mission List and in the “refer to”, tell them Becky Willis sent you–I’m in a contest to get to BlogHer for free (ending 6/15).

This post was written to give me an entry in The Mission List’s contest to send a blogger to BlogHer ’13, but I mean every word. I REALLY want to make it this year, and would love your support. Smooches.
