BlogHer Food '13: Day One in Tweets

BlogHer Original Post

Happy BlogHer Food '13 day! Everything kicked off in Austin, TX this morning. I worked hard to follow along with the #BlogHerFood hashtag to bring you, as we always do, Day One in Tweets. Because we have so many amazing attendees quoting our wonderful speakers in our many sessions, we only have room to share one tweet per session. But they're some good ones!
