Need a BlogHer ticket or flights from Dallas?

UPDATE: BlogHer Ticket is SOLD.
I still have a 392.50$ gift certificate to South West Airlines for sale for a bargain price of 392$. Can be used to any SW flights.


I had been planning my first ever BlogHer conference for a long time, and was so excited about the possibility to go, and learn more about blogging and meeting all my online friends.

But life doesn’t always go as planned.

Last Monday I was hospitalized because of 12 blood clots in my lungs. After one week on blood thinning medication, my blood results are still not even near what they should be and I am afraid to take a risk to travel to BlogHer in San Francisco in July 17-20.

I have a confrence ticket to BlogHer and flights from Dallas to Oakland (20 minute drive from the BlogHer hotel) I’d like to sell.

PLEASE, spread the word, I would love to give someone else the opportunity to go, and frankly will need the money now for my outrageous medical bills.

Thank you for everyone’s help!

    Katja, I am so sorry to hear that I won’t have the opportunity to meet you at BlogHer.

    Have you found a coumadin/warfarin clinic at your destination yet? I’m sure you are still on regular monitoring of your INR levels.

    If you still have the pass, I would be thrilled to purchase it. Contact me

    Crap on a crap cracker! I was so looking forward to meeting you.

    No matter, we will toast to you in absentia, sweet thing. Take it easy with the blood thinners. I was on them for a year and still have the bruises to prove it.

    You’re in my thoughts.

    Get well soon! Although it’s disappointing, I hope you can recover quickly.

    Get better soon! That’s really disappointing. Better safe than sorry though.

  13. Adrienne

    I put this post up on the BlogHer site, hopefully someone will take everything off your hands. I hope you are feeling better soon. Be careful with moving.

    What a bummer :-( But you DO have to take care of yourself, so it’s for the best this year. Many BlogHer years to come, I’m sure! I’d just just about anything to take those tickets off your hands…….except lie to my husband and abandon our children, which is what I’d have to do to be able to go :-)

    I re-tweeted this, though….hope someone gets to use them & you get the $$ for your medical bills..

  15. Christine

    I’m so bummed you can’t make it…I was looking forward to meeting you.

    But really, I was worried about you flying; being on a plane increases risk of developing clots, as you know I’m sure.

    Spreading the word about your tickets.

    I’m so sorry that I’m not going to get to hang out with you :(

    We’ll do it again next year!!!
