1st Annual Kidlitosphere Conference
I’m coming in late to this discussion, so you’ll have to be patient with me. By this point I’m sure that quite a few of you are familiar with author Robin Brande’s 1st Annual Kidlitosphere Conference. That’s right. Conference. The kind of thing where you get up off your tuckus and go somewhere to meet your fellows. In short, the ultimate Kidlit Drink Night for bloggers. There’s even an RSVP list up and running.
So… I’d like to go. I would. But I’m poor. Very poor. Librarian-working-in-Manhattan poor. I’d have a free place to stay (sister dear) but it’s the getting there that’s a problem. Still, think of all the wonderful bloggers and authors who’ve done their darndest and come on out to New York to see me. Shouldn’t I return the favor?
Dunno. Here’s where you come in then. Where does one find the cheapest airline tickets in the world? I mean tickets so cheap they must be storing you in the overhead compartment for all that you don’t pay. I know of Orbitz, but Orbitz does not a cheapo ticket always make. Remember, the comment section of this blog doesn’t handle URLs, uh, at all. Tell me what to Google, if you can.
In any case, color me game but wary. I’m up for this, but I think some preparation needs to go into my plans.
