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!
Let's get started!
Breakfast was yummy again.
The morning keynote brought together bloggers and brands to talk about ethics.
Taylor Mathis took his attendees through an in depth master class on outdoor photography.

Want to take restaurant food photos? Think about where you are sitting, pick a window/outside...Or use instagram. #blogherfood— Jen Evison (@JenEvison) June 9, 2012
The morning session on cookbooks talked about the idea of collaboration and how to make it work for you.
When you do your own photos you do not get any extra royalties. You may get a slightly bigger advance. Maybe, or not.#BlogHerFood— Evil Shenanigans (@bakingblog) June 9, 2012
The food bloggers as storytellers session was full of great bits of writing advice.
An interesting session on food techniques taught attendees about fish filleting, how to use a knife, chicken raising and food testers.
The lunch time excursion to Pike Place Market brought about some fun times:
The panelists at the Embracing Imperfection session discussed being yourself -- mistakes and all.
Cooking, as with all things worth doing in life, requires a "what the hell" attitude. Dive in. Don't be afraid to fail. #blogherfood— Cambria Bold (@cambriabold) June 9, 2012
During the afternoon photography session, attendees learned free and user-friendly tools to edit photos.
Attendees of the Bootstrapping Your Cookbook Tour session learned some realities about book tours and self-promotion, as well as good tips.
The session on vintage recipes and cocktails talked about why revisiting the "old" can be good for your blog.
When modernizing a vintage recipe such as Caesar Salad, don't strip it of key ingred. so it's not a Caesar anymore.#BlogHerFood— Laura Rucker (@MsWonka) June 9, 2012
The conference came to an end with an amazing closing Keynote between author Kim Sunee and Lisa Stone.
What a conference!
We're going to give you a day to, ahem, digest all of the stuff you learned before wrapping up everything you've said on twitter about BlogHer Food '12. Don't forget to check out all of the liveblogs so you can, ahem, marinate on what you heard. I'm sorry. I'm overly food-ified and a bit, wait for it, cheesy!
Thanks for following along with us during the conference! See you in New York City!
