Holy Moly! BlogHer! I am still working though my experiences there. I went to almost all the sessions. A couple were productive and interesting. However, the main even was…not lunch with Martha Stuart, or even lunch with Katie Couric (although that was awesome!) It was meeting and connecting with other bloggers. I don’t mean the random networking and thrusting of cards at each other, but the truly meaningful connection I made with some of the individuals there. Sometimes it was just a short conversation that stayed with you, other times it was a discussion that was so intriguing you changed your plans just to continue it.
I met some great friends, finally understood the nuances of Twitter, and learned quite a bit at BlogHer12. I also had a wicked good time! There was a party every night. Saturday night at the Sparklecorn party I had a blast! I danced so long and hard that my friends thought I was drinking, while I was sober and just dancing it out. That was a blast. Plus, any party where Ace of Cakes brings a Punk/Space Unicorn clearly rocks!
Hopefully there will be more BlogHer posts coming, however I am a little distracted with a couple of events. 1) One of my Besties gave birth to a darling little girl—and I get to meet her tomorrow. 2) Packing for my trip back to Turkey. There is a lot of bag weighing and triaging of clothes at my house. GRRR…Damn the one bag, 23 kg limits!
