BlogHer 2012: August 2-4, 2012

I wish I was going to BlogHer '12I've heard a lot about BlogHer from past attendees. In summer 2010, Yes/No Films was in its "infancy" - it started in January 2010 - and so I didn't go to BlogHer, which was in NYC that year. Last year, I considered it, but it was in San Diego, which was a bit too expensive for airfare and hotel. This year, however, it's back in New York, which is a lot closer to Detroit, so I will be attending!

However! I would definitely need a roommate. This year it's at the Hilton, and although BlogHer provides a discounted rate for its attendees, it's still New York City, where hotels are crazy expensive.


That being said, is there anyone out there planning on attending BlogHer '12 and looking for a roommate? I will probably be arriving either that Thursday or early that Friday morning, and staying until Sunday. I would prefer a Detroit-area blogger so that we could meet in person beforehand, but I have a Skype account, so really anyone is fine.


If you need a roommate, please email me at
liz [at] yesnofilms.com! I would love to hear from you.


I will be rooming with Jenn from New Jersey, who blogs at Aka the Wife, and Kailee from Oregon, who blogs at Precious Cargo Bakery!

I am also accepting sponsor(s) for BlogHer 2012, for any amount. I've calculated that between hotel ($239/night plus taxes) and airfare (currently $285 on Delta) and the BlogHer ticket itself ($200), it's going to cost about $800-1000 or more. I'm willing to promote your company on my blog, wear your t-shirt(s) to BlogHer, promote you at the conference, or basically do whatever you want me to do (within reason, of course!). Please email me at liz [at] yesnofilms.com if you are interested in any form of sponsorship.

Definitely follow me on Twitter or Facebook if you are a blogger attending BlogHer this year, too!

  1. Check the blogher discussion boards. Also try following the #blogher12 tag. I've seen a few people looking for roommates. But FYI, if you want to stay at the host hotel (which i recommend), you should reserve your room soon. It will fill up quickly.

  2. I did check the boards, but there's not much on there. I will try following the #blogher12 tag - thanks for the suggestion. As for the hotel, if I was to book it today, would it be refundable if I had to cancel? I'm not sure if I'm doing Thursday to Sunday or Friday to Sunday right now - probably Friday to Sunday and arriving early, though Thurs-Sun would make the most sense logistically.
