Thank you Lisa, Elisa, and Jory for your leadership, vision, and hard work for making BlogHer such incredible experience for me. Also, Miriam Verburg for that huge task of organizing the live blogging and training session that will help me with blogging technique in general. And, I know that there are many more people who volunteered their time, resources, and brainpower to make this one of the best conference I've attended. I also want to thank everyone who let me photograh their shoes, bags, jewerly, etc and ask them off-the-wall inappropriate questions.
The content of the sessions was superb and networking possibilities endless. The creative energy that circulated in this warm and caring community has energized me. I can't wait for next year's blogher!
Part of what made this such a great experience was the chance to meet many of the people whose blogs I read regularly. For example, Nancy White and Village Girl! And, to discover new people like Bev Trayner and Anina who blogs I look forward to reading. What was really amazing is that I was to connect with people who are passionate about some of the same topics I care deeply about and I probably would never of discovered them if not for this conference.
I don't get to conferences very often or do live blogging much any these days and this gave me a chance to use my rusty skills and reflect on how to do it better the next time. The content provided me with unlimited access to incredible expertise.
Thank you! And, now a few hours of relaxing before getting on the red eye back tonight.
