BlogHerPro Conference, Dec. 2012

Yesterday I attended BlogHerPro in San Francisco. The first keynote speakers, White on Rice Couple, Diane and Todd set the mood for the day for me. One of the concerns I held about blogging was that I would have to follow the path of successful bloggers to be successful and I did not want to do that so I've taken my time to really get started. This couple decided to stay true to what they wanted to present in their blog, after trying to do what didn't make them happy. They did it their way, are successful, prosperous and are helping others. WOW! That helped to bury my biggest fear about blogging. The sessions that I attend, Disaster Proof Your Blog, Sales and Marketing Track/The Life of a Sale and Growth Track, Brought to You by Bing, were extremely informative and beneficial to me. I received the benefit of things to be aware of from the experiences of the presenters. There were lots of gifts of what to be aware of in working with designers and programmers and how to get a company to purchase your brand, understanding what you're really selling, the need for an attorney review, etc. I got my money's worth of information. There was a wealth of information shared and questions answered. Great day. It was wonderful to meet new people and to greet and converse with those I met previously at prior BlogHer events. I am still ingesting all that I was exposed to and the glut of information. As an aside never eat beans at a convention luncheon - OMG - chuckle - OMG! The reception was hosted by Zynga at their San Francisco facility. Have you ever been served pie on a stick? I hadn't until last night. It was delicious. What a wonderful way to close out the blog business year - great information - wonderful presenters - good food - nice people - net working. KUDOS to the BlogHer staff for an excellent conference. Thank you for doing what you do!!
