Off To Blogger Bash!

Since I skipped out on New York Toy Fair this year, I decided it was about time to go to Blogger Bash! I’ve known about this conference for a few years now, but between Toy Fair and other shows, I couldn’t afford to make the trip. Blogger Bash, like Toy Fair, is held in the Big Apple, otherwise known as New York City. It’s rather strange to me that I’ve ended up in New York City three years in a row (and over five times total in my lifetime). But, thankfully, it’s one of the easiest cities to get around, seeing as how you can easily find a taxi, take a subway or walk to where you need to go, if you’re in the city! (Not that I’m ever brave enough to try the subway!)

So, what will Blogger Bash entail? Essentially, Blogger Bash consists of a breakfast and three large expo events: Sweet Suite, Babypalooza and Stuff for Mom and Dad. The Sweet Suite is what I’m most looking forward to. Companies from all over set up shop to talk up their products to bloggers and vloggers. Best of all, we all get to leave with a goodie bag filled with things to sample on our sites and channels! (Call me greedy, but I love swag!) I’ll be covering the Babypalooza and Stuff For Mom and Dad expo’s, too, because why not? I like to get my money’s worth out of these shows, especially since I’m putting so much money into the hotel/airfare.

Since this is my first year attending, I’m not sure how exactly it will go, but I’m hopeful that it will be a fun event! For more information on what I’ll be doing during Blogger Bash, check out their website. I expect to be updating my instagram and will most likely post quick pictures to my facebook page. I may try to go live, though I’m not sure if it will be through Facebook or YouTube (or if the wifi will even be strong enough to do so).

Blogger Bash also coincides with something called “Manhattanhedge“, which sounds like a great photo opportunity. It was featured on an episode of “Younger”, for fans of that show. Essentially, the sun lines up with the city grid and looks pretty awesome. (There’s probably a much more technical way to explain it!) This may be rained out, but I’m hoping it isn’t!

So, that’s the plan for the next few days. I’ll try to update you on the show as soon as I get back. In the meantime, Barbee0913 and I uploaded quite a few new videos to our channels! Check them out below.

The Skipper Electric Drawing set will get a written post after Blogger Bash. But here’s a look at how it works!

If you’re a New Yorker or have been in the past, I’d love suggestions on where to eat (around Time Square/Hell’s Kitchen/Chelsea Pier, that area). I never know where to eat when I’m in New York City. There are so many choices!!! Are you going to a show  soon? Have you been to a show recently? Let me know in the comment area!

    I lived in NYC for years but it was 16 years ago. I always felt safer in the subway than in a taxi!

      I just don’t trust my sense of direction when it comes to the subway. I fear I’d find myself on the other end of where I wanted to be! 🙂
