Sisters Are Bloggin’ It for Themselves

A few thoughts and observations from my first day of my first BlogHer conference, where sisters are bloggin' it for themselves.

A few thoughts and observations from my first day of my first BlogHer conference, where sisters are bloggin’ it for themselves:

  • Damn, there’s a lot of women (including mommy) bloggers here. Around 800. I think I’ve met at least 400 already!
  • The W Hotel I’m staying at is super-swank. Way nicer than my usual hotel fare.
  • I feel like I’m jamming about 50 platonic blind dates into one weekend. I’ve met some of my favorite bloggers face-to-face, and it’s so cool in a weird Internet-y way.
  • It’s nice to just be on my own for a while. I haven’t been out of town for more than a day since Cassie was born. I miss her like crazy, but I also like doing my own thing, kickin’ it old-school Susan.
  • There are a lot of PR and marketing people who want to get in this blog—and blogs like it. I’ve snagged lots of freebies to share with Tela, Cara, and Sara.
  • I have enough Friday Finds stored up for many weeks to come!
  • Chicago: What a cool town. I’ve missed it since my grad school days.

OK, one blissful night of uninterrupted sleep in a soft, cushy hotel bed awaits. I must heed the call.

    It was SOOO fun hanging out with you. I hope we get to meet up again soon!

  5. Moxie Mom says:

    We met in the Speed Dating Line, so I will assume you don’t remember me. However, I loved the idea of mothering without guilt SO MUCH, I remembered you.
    Stop by and take a look. I had a good time meeting you.

  6. I’m flattered by all your nice words. I can’t wait to visit all the blogs I learned about this weekend, including Moxie Mom!
