Two weeks from now I'll be at BlogHer '12 in NYC and this year I come armed with a mission statement and goals. It might seem extreme, but it becomes very easy to lose your way attending an event with 4,500 women and over 100 brands.
It becomes very easy to be lured into fancy parties, events that your friends want a plus one for, and sessions that don't meet your needs.
My mission this year is to Feed My Soul. And my objective (outside of my personal objectives in the city) is to learn as much as I can in the areas that bring me the most joy.
I'll be live tweeting the sessions from @AlissaEnders for the following events during the conference in an effort to share what I am learning with those who won't be able to join the masses in NYC.
