What a rollercoaster week for me! I was making every effort to attend BlogWorld and Real Estate BlogWorld Expo 2009. My kids started to get sick and I thought “Oh no, Dad just won’t do while Mom is away!” So I started stuffing them with vitamin C and OJ all week.

They were starting to get better and I was looking at airline tickets every 5 minutes. Then the unthinkable happened…My husband got sick! UGH! My main babysitter was going to be incapable of taking care of the kids. My backup babysitter, Nana, already had plans to go out of town to none other than VEGAS but totally opposite times of the conference schedule.

So I resorted to watch streaming live video and was frustrated to find out it was only the first event in the morning and the last event in the evening every day but hey it was something, right? I also viewed tweets with the hashtag #bwe09 and #rebw09 to get the best ideas, quotes and thoughts from the conference. I decided to collect and share them with you as well as a few video interviews in this post.
