BlogHer Food '12: What You Wrote After

I love to read write-ups of conferences after attendees arrive home. The experiences are always wide and varied, as no two people can attend the same conference and have the same experiences. Our BlogHer Food '12 attendees proved just that with their great wrap-up posts which we are briefly highlighting today. If you didn't go or even if you did go, I encourage you to read through some of these posts and see what people experienced, thought, felt, photographed and ate at BlogHer Food in Seattle....more
My post is not a recap as such, but rather a reflection on what inspired me about the conference ...more

BlogHer Food '12: What You Tweeted After

Happy re-entry after BlogHer Food '12 Monday! We hope you've exited your food-and-fun coma and are readjusting to your normal, everyday routine.One way we like to wrap up a conference is by looking at what you've been tweeting about the conference as a whole. We already covered your thoughts on sessions (from both day one and day two), so these tweets are more of the general "this is what I thought about BlogHer Food '12." They include inspiration to do new things, humor and everything in between....more

BlogHer Food '12: Day Two in Tweets!

Today found our BlogHer '12 Food attendees sharing photos, wisdom from sessions and other chatter via twitter once again. I have to say that there's something fun about following the #blogherfood hashtag and reading each and every one of your tweets. Every single one! I feel like I've learned more than my brain can handle. Like yesterday, I pulled two tweets from each session to give you a broad overview of what people took away from the panelists' presentations. For a more in depth look, click through to each individual liveblog to see everything in context!...more

BlogHer Food '12: Day One in Tweets!

What an amazing first day of our BlogHer Food '12 conference in Seattle! Between the delicious food and the informative sessions, I'm not sure how our attendees managed to tweet up a storm, but they did. I followed along all day, learning and laughing and drooling over food. If you missed a session or are following along with our Virtual Conference at home, this Day in Tweets post will bring you up to speed -- in bite sized portions -- with today's happenings....more

Excitement Continues to Build for BlogHer Food '12!

The excitement for BlogHer Food '12 continues to build this week. We're less than three days from Day One of the conference, and the food blogging niche of the blogosphere is talking about all the ways they're preparing for the big event! These posts are always of interest to me because, as individuals, we all get ready for something like this in different ways. Some people create. Some people worry. Some people, well, eat! Some people celebrate! What I do know is that we're listening to what you're saying, and we want to share it with others as they plan and pack....more
