Okay y’all. This is a really big one. I need your help and I need it in a bad way.

Picture this – there’s a playoff game with 2 seconds left on the clock and your team has to make one more basket just to tie it up and take it into overtime. If you’re the praying kind, well, you don’t even have time for that now, except for possibly a “Please, God…” before the buzzer.

I’ve never been one to ask a favor (who am I kidding – I just asked 12 bloggers to join me in promoting cancer awareness!), but I’m going to ask one now. This is my “please, God..”

There is a certain conference in San Francisco in the middle of July…oh, you may have heard of it – it’s called “BlogHer”? Well, my husband said I could go, but here’s my situation – over the last 6 weeks, I have spent any discretionary money I had towards repairing my van (to the tune of $1700). We aren’t swimming in the dough, guys – someday we’ll have more income, but we are still laying the foundation of our business and need more clients (no, I’m not asking you to become a client!) so I don’t feel really good about just taking money away from our household to go to this thing. You see, I didn’t even know until yesterday that I wanted to do this, but it has come all over me like wildfire that somehow it’s going to make a difference for me to get to attend.

I have made some friends during this whole blogging journey and there are a couple I’d love to meet. One has even gone so far as to encourage me to attend and sent an email with the link I’m about to share with you. I have to at least try, it would seem.

So here it is, we come down to the final countdown. I need a hero. Badly. And you don’t have much time – the buzzer sounds tomorrow for the end of the contest.

Would you even consider this? If so, click here for more details.
