Something I’d like to tell you!

For more information please see BlogHer’s conferences page for details. Join us!


  1. Yay you! I wish I could be there, but it’s not in the budget.

    I’m so glad to see your face. The effects of being on predinsone for your Lupus are the same effects that having Cushing’s has on people; only when you’re on oral steroids you don’t have the challenge of getting people to believe that steroids are what are making you sick and fat.

    Best wishes and fleecy hugs from Eustice.

  2. Congrats, Erin. My favorite part of this video is the smile on your face. I’m so glad you’re doing better. Just keep fighting.

  3. Yes, I’m sure when people see me they have no idea I’m sick. They just think I’m fat. It’s annoying. But I’m learning to get over it. I’m also learning that as I taper off the steroids I can lose this damn weight!

  4. Hooray! I’ll be at the main conference but not Healthminder day. It’s dumb that I will see you in NYC and not in CA. Whatever.

  5. REALLY disappointed that I can’t make it to BlogHer this year – but I’m glad you are getting to go and that you’re up to going. *hugs*

  6. This is the first time I’m regretting not going to BlogHer this year. You look beautiful on the video. It’s great to see you smiling again. Best of luck on your talk. I’ll be cheering you on via BH@Home here in Vegas.

  7. Kim I think I’m going to see you tomorrow…. and I hope I get to see the rest of you soon.

  8. I wish you would post more videos of yourself, Erin. I came into the comments to say I think you look fabulous in this video — so much healthier than a few months ago — you’re practically glowing — and what I do find in the comments but more anxiety about losing weight.

    Honey. You look BEAUTIFUL. Now. I am not saying this to be nice. When I’m being nice I say you ARE beautiful (which is also and always true). Go on and get healthy, but don’t worry so much about your dress size.

  9. It’s so nice to see you smile. I won’t be at Health Minder Day, but I’ll be there Friday for the Voices of the Year (I’m a reader!) and the main conference. I hope to meet you, Erin, hope some of your strength is contagious.

  10. So great to “see” you! I wish I were going to NY! But I guess I will be an At Homer. Have a great trip and kick ass! xo

  11. Wish I could go and hug you! You inspire me!

  12. Alas, I won’t be able to make it to BlogHer (Germany is a long way away), but I’ll be there in spirit cheering you on and hoping that your speech makes its way onto the net somehow so I can see it.
    I just know that you will be amazing.

  13. This is the best news I’ve heard all year. 🙂

  14. I’m so glad so many of you find this to be good news. I’m humbled to have so many supporting me. I see my doctor again a week from Thursday to confirm my numbers are still in a good spot for me to travel. I feel excited and wanting MORE MORE MORE.

  15. YEAAAHHHH!!! Keep up the good work woman- I’m going to get to see you in NY dangit!


  16. You go girl!! Sooo happy for you!!!
