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.
The morning got started in true foodie fashion with a scrumptious breakfast, of course.
As attendees finished up their delicious breakfasts, the co-founders took to the stage.
The tweets started flying when Diane Cu and (name) from White on Rice Couple took the stage. People were inspired and shared little bits of what they learned.
Then sessions began and tweets started flying like mad! At the Food Photography Trends, Beyond Pretty session, we learned a few ways that social media and blogging are changing photography as well as an important discussion on the history of food photography -- and how it inspires the way we take photos today.
Instant photos are the trend. communicating how food relates to our lives. Photos capture moment and are less perfect. #BlogHerFood— Evil Shenanigans (@bakingblog) June 8, 2012
While there are distinct elements of each photography style, it doesn't mean that you can't pull in elements from other styles. #BlogHerFood— Land O'Lakes (@LandOLakesKtchn) June 8, 2012
One word was repeated, retweeted and regaled during the traffic building session: PINTEREST. But other things about social media were discussed as well.

At the Pushing Boundaries in Food Blogging session, people were inspired to re-think blogging.
Getting into the facts about food at the Separate Food Fact from Food Fiction and Increase Your Credibility session, attendees were pushed to think about the differences between fads and the truth about nutrition.
Lunch was, as you might imagine, good.
