Too Broke For BlogHer Signs

BlogHer '07 is in my hometown of Chicago this year. Thank the Lord, because I'm simply too broke to pay the entrance fees. And since it is local I can at least scrounge up enough dosh to meet some of my beloved bloggers at the hotel bar in between sessions. I won't have to miss mingling with my favorite writers and friends.

I know I'm not alone in this budgetary crunch. There are others who have to prioritize grocery money over conference fees and airline tickets. So for all of us who wish we had the dough to go to BlogHer but don't, I have made these signs for you to post on your blogs. Enjoy!

Sparky said...

That's too bad.
I understand blogher is a great place to pick up chicks.

Lotta said...

Bossy - High compliment coming from the queen of photoshop.

Sparky - Uh, wouldn't know about that. Best of luck to you with that though!

Slackermommy said...

Love it! You are my idil.

Mom101 said...

Hilarious!

And yet...effective. I now have a hankering for a Schlitz.

Jenny said...

"Bring me back a schlitz". I almost wish I wasn't going just so I could use that one.

i can't freaking wait to see you.

Lotta said...

Glad you liked them.
Rumor is there are some volunteer spots open at Blogher and the "pay" is a free pass. I just emailed them so I hope that works out!

Jenny - I am going to crush your wee frame in a big Chicago bear hug!

ElisaC said...

Yes indeed there are volunteer positions that come with a free conference pass. Everything form live text blogging to audio recording to general gofer goodness. Just email me (elisa at blogher dot org) or Kristy (kristy at blogher dot org) with your availability and skillz :)

Also, we're cooking up some ways to virtually attend as well, so stay tuned...

Mrs. Chicky said...

Those are great. Wish I had one last year.

mommiebear2 said...

Those are awesome - now if I only knew how to put it on my blog. :(

katy said...

How cool are those. I am trying to learn a little something about photoshop and paintshop but it is going to take my middle aged mind quite a while to figure this stuff out.
I wish I would have gotten in on the contest Thursday but didn't even see it until today. Nice prize and most of us probably already have too many baskets;-)

Judi said...

I'm not a beer drinker but that knocked up chick sure makes a cold one look classy!

Kelly said...

These are hilarious. Thanks!

Little Monkies said...

Vodka and diet coke? Horrors!

You got the skillz, mama, I would vote you in as a volunteer any day!

sarcastic journalist said...

Oooh...can you make me one that says "I'm going to BLOGher but only because I had a travel certificate from when someone stole from me on an airline on Christmas and that my friends are paying for the hotel room and letting me crash and I'll probably just end up walking around, chasing Oprah?"

Yeah, that'd be great.

Domestic Chicky said...

Wahhhh!!! I can't go!!!

Ooh! But I CAN have a cool button instead!! Thanks L, you're the BEST!

Stephanie said...

These are priceless!!

Oh, and keep your fingers crossed: I'm working on sponsorship!! I really want to meet you!!

Queen of the Mayhem said...

I have been so jealous of all the talk of Blogher. I honestly thought I had a chance to go....OH, the ladies I was going to stalk!

But, my sister's stupid wedding shower that she REFUSES to change!

ICK!

By the way.....you are one sexy B....will you ship me some Stoli? :)

Lotta said...

To all - Ha!

Sarcastic - Um, no. My arm's too tired from carrying around too overtired kids all day. But I do admire someone who can hustle a good deal!

Stephanie - If you find a rich sponsor for me see if they can kick in a spa day at W. Kay? ;)

karrie said...

I love the Schlitz one. Maybe you can get a sponsor somehow? The buttons are damn funny.

QueenB said...

Awesome! And a big thanks for remembering your brokeass sisters with such love.

Sadly, I will be needing to use one of those.

Worker Mommy said...

I want to borrow that 2nd one. Thats classic. Hey she might even look kind of like me :)

Worker Mommy said...

The 2nd one (sign) from the bottom that is

Mad Hatter said...

I would cost me something like $5,000 and take 12 hours of travelling to get to BlogHer. Screw that. I think I'll scratch my ass and drink moonshine instead. This was brilliant, Lotta, simply brilliant.

EE said...

LOL!!!!!!!!!!

margalit said...

I've made some too, a lot less funny than yours, but I've got a great badge on my site that you're free to pilfer!

Sarah said...

These are hilarious! And express my sentiment exactly...

Heather said...

Seriously, those are awesome. So funny!
