Blogger New Year's Challenge - 1/13/16

Join Rachel of for The Book Blogger New Year’s Challenge that will begin on January 1 and run for 14 days.

Day 13:  Reader/Blogger Cons You WANT To Attend In 2016

I would love to go to the BEA in Chicago since I have gone to the BEA every year since I started my blog in 2010.

I am not going, though.  

I went when it was in New York at the Javits because I was able to stay with my son, and he could be my navigator.  :)

I will definitely miss going, but I will be happy for those folks who will get to attend.

I will go to Chicago via The BEA Armchair.  :)


  1. Elizabeth, I have only been to the BEA Armchair. I would like to attend one year.

    1. I may need your help with the BEA Armchair. :)

      Thanks for stopping, Suko.

  2. I've signed up for BEA in Chicago but don't think I'll go. We'll see.

    1. It will be interesting to see how many people attend since we are used to NYC.

      Let me know if you do go.

      Thanks for stopping, Kathy.

  3. I haven't yet attended a BEA conference, but would love to. However, I can't see myself going to Chicago. :(

  4. The conferences are such fun.

    You meet other bloggers, authors, publishers, and have a very nice time.

    Meeting the other bloggers is the BEST!!

    Thanks for stopping, Diane.

  5. That sounds fun. Didn't know such a thing existed. Glad there are cool book conferences for book ppl out there.

    1. Oh...the BEA is such fun.

      I never knew about until about the third year into my blogging.

      Thanks for stopping, Stefanie.

  6. BEA falls near my birthday and I am totally thinking about going. Sorry you cannot go this year. Hopefully it will work out that you can next time.

    1. I hope you do go, Bill.

      You will love it.

      I won't go unless it goes back to NYC.

      Thanks for stopping, Bill.

    1. You MUST go, Harvee Lau. :)

      You love it.

      Have fun.

      Thanks for stopping, Harvee Lau.

  8. And this is one BEA I WILL be able to attend because it is so close to home! I am very excited about it. I know it will be different from the NY version, but I am excited to finally meet all the people!

    1. You will LOVE meeting other bloggers and publicists.

      Meeting authors is amazing too, but my favorite part is meeting other bloggers. When you meet another blogger, it is as exciting as meeting a celebrity. :)

      Have a wonderful time, Michelle, and thanks for stopping.
