I’m leaving for BlogHer 2013 in Chicago Wednesday evening and the last two weeks have been a blur of party chat, invitations and strategizing! I used the photo above to tweet for Advil congestion relief which was the winner of a folk up bicycle that I’ve used … wait for it… once! And that was just to take a picture of me with the prize.
I want to ride the bike but it’s too darn hilly around here. Anyway, what this means for you is more giveaway opportunities in future months. It also means no Weekly Chronicles next Sunday as I won’t get in ANY blog reading.
