I attended the 3rd annual Bloggers in Sin City meetup over the weekend. If you follow me on twitter, you probably already know that. My last 88 tweets (yes, I counted) have been, in some way, shape or form, professing my love for the 50+ other bloggers who attended with me. Or complaining about how much my feet hurt. We can’t keep it ALL positive up in here, you know.
I learned several things over the weekend.
Canada doesn’t have Target.
PURE nightclub will let you check you shoes and walk around barefoot. (right, jenn?)
In vegas, 12 oz. of red bull costs $8. Club sandwiches are $15. MINI bottles of water are $9. You get the drift — it’s fucking expensive as shit.
Lounging in the sun is so much more fun when you have a VIP area or a cabana.
But above all of that, the #1 thing I learned is that bloggers are really great people…. who live way too far away. I’ve met so many amazing folks through the internet, and this weekend was no exception. If you ever have a chance to attend BiSC, or any blogger meetup for that matter, DO IT. Even if you have to go alone. I’m not saying that you won’t end up meeting a blogger who sucks — it happens. But if you are lucky enough to meet 100 bloggers in your lifetime, the other 99 people you meet will be AWESOME.
Oh and one more thing I learned. Nicole is a saint. The weekend was impeccably organized for optimum fun and we owe all of that to her.
Enough schmoopy mcshoomp and cheesey mccheesiness. I was going to post a ton of pictures, but this video Apocalypstick compiled captures how much freaking fun the weekend was in just a few minutes.
Start saving your money for next year. You don’t want to miss it.
