I wish I could fly. Well, maybe not, but it would certainly make things easier. I’m currently recovering from CES (yes, I’m due for a recap here) in Vegas and scurrying around making plans for my crazy February. Here are the highlights:
- Blissdom in Nashville – I’m speaking at a “Wisdom Workshop” at this great conference geared toward female bloggers. After my experience at the intimate Blogalicious, I’m really excited about the whole weekend.
- Disney Social Media Moms Celebration/Conference – Anyone who knows me in real life knows how much I love Disney and, in particular, Mickey Mouse. People who know me online are probably aware that I also love social media. Put the two together and it’s sheer heaven for me. So, yeah, I’m going. It wasn’t really a question!
- Toy Fair – While much smaller than CES, Toy Fair is THE place to be to learn about the hottest trends in toys, gadgets and gear for the kids. I’ll be there representing the Family Computing site at About.com, but also doing some recon for my readers here at Quirky Fusion. It will be a crazy couple of days (I fly straight to NY from Orlando), but I’m really looking forward to seeing what’s new this year. The line between computers and toys has completely blurred, so I’ll be looking for lots of innovation.
- Engage Expo – This conference is dedicated to virtual worlds and the people who make and market them. It has traditionally been held on the West Coast, so I’m very happy that it’s moved to NYC. It’s being held in conjunction with Toy Fair (see my note above about blurred lines) and so I get to kill two birds with one stone. Woot!
My travel schedule settles down after February, but I think this is just the start of a fantastic year. Hope you’ll join me for the ride!
