BlogHer 2012: My Perspective

Mamacita says:  I've only just returned from New York City, where the best BlogHer conference yet was held.  While I may be home now, my head and heart are still mingling with the 5,000 women (and men) in the Hilton hallways and session rooms.  Oh, and behind the registration desk, which is the best job EVER because everybody has to register, so the volunteers there get to see everybody....more
 @Jett Thank YOU for saying that.  You're so kind!more

What’s Your BlogHer ’12 Follow Up Strategy?

After all the parties are over, you’ve traveled home, and recovered from re-entry into regular life, what’s next?

My Thoughts and Purpose, Musings Before BlogHer 12

It's less than a week away.  At this time next Wednesday, we will be at the airport waiting for our flight to La Guardia!  We arrive at 12:34 and I've yet to decide whether to hire a car service to get us to the Hilton, or just take a cab.  After my last taxi experience in Barcelona, I'm not anxious to get inside another cab.  But this is the US and not crazy Spain, so we should be good in a cab, right?...more
 @KarenLynnn Great, because it is a nice city and so close to San Francisco! :-)  more
