My BlogHer Sisters, They Have My Back

It’s been just over two weeks since I was the last of my roommates to check out of the Sheraton and head home from #BlogHer13, and I haven’t stopped missing them.My BlogHer sisters.They have posted recaps already.

So this is the expectation I had going into my first blogging conference called Blogher '13....more
