On Tech Tips and Tools For Navigating #BlogHer12

Last year at BlogHer, I attended almost every session, party and keynote. I made it early for yoga, was up late on the dance floor. In between, I got to know the Expo Hall from front to back. But I wasn't an attendee. As the official photographer last year, I got to see it all from behind a camera lens, and like seeing the wizard behind the curtain, I was given the opportunity to see how it all comes together.

Great tips! Packing the gear begins now. more

Another Treat for BlogHer '12: A Hotel Room of One's Own

I feel like I should preface this with telling you how much I love my husband and kids, but I am going to skip straight over that and tell you how much I love staying in a hotel without them. This little lick of luxury does not happen very often but when it does, like on my upcoming trip to NYC, I savor every minute. What's so great?...more
I feel the exact same way, and I'm a single lady with no children. Looking forward to ... more
