The Blog University: 1-Minute Recap

The Blog University: 1-Minute Recap


Let Me Start By Saying, that it was so nice to leave My Life and Kids & Binkies and Briefcases behind, putting Suburban Snapshots in the rearview mirror (You Know it Happens at Your House Too).  I gathered the Divine Secrets of a Domestic Diva, while wearing Mommy Shorts, and sporting Baby Sideburns; someone even asked me if I would contribute to the Underachiever’s Guide to Being a Domestic Goddess, and she quickly became one of the People I want to Punch in the Throat.  We shared Bad Parenting Moments, how Funny is Family, talked about being a Ninja Mom, an Honest Mom, and Mom of the Year (lies!), and were like: Motherhood, WTF?  I’m Still Learning how to get Random Handprints off of the wall and what to do when Naps Happen!  We hung out in Kelley’s Break Room for some HouseTalkN, sharing Toulouse & Tonic and chatting about Our Small Moments at conference.  Rebecca, from FrugalistaBlog, cracked open The Fordeville Diaries (about Four Plus an Angel), read about the Hollow Tree Ventures and talked smack about Paige Kellerman.  In the end, I learned about 649.133: Girls, the Care and Maintenance Of, and joined the Sisterhood of Sensible Moms.

Thank you for an amazing conference, with such wickedly talented faculty!  Zoloft is sponsoring my full-length conference recap, which should be publishing shortly...

BlogHer '10 Recap: You Are Powerful

I went into BlogHer '10 thinking about the recap I'd write AFTER it was all over, which sounds weird, doesn't it? It's true, though. I've been to five BlogHer Cons (plus BlogHer Food '09) and I work here, too. I know the scene. We come. We connect. We laugh. We cry. We learn. We get angry. We wear great shoes. We're overwhelmed. That stuff -- it's the same every year. This year, going into the conference, I was really tired before I ever landed in NYC.   Read more >

BlogHer '11 Recap: It Really Was "Life Well Lived"

I've attended a lot of BlogHer events, (six main conferences and three food conferences), and BlogHer '11 was by far my favorite. I've also written a lot of BlogHer conference wrap-up posts but the BlogHer '11 wrap-up post has been the most difficult to write. I can't just say "Best. Conference. Ever." even though a lot of people who've attended multiple BlogHer conferences have said the same thing. I have to tell you why it was the best conference ever, and that's hard to explain.   Read more >
