What I Wish I Had Known Three Months Before My First BlogHer Conference

If there's a way to do BlogHer wrong, I did just that last year.I signed up at the last minute, paid too much for rush shipping of bad business cards, didn't look into any other bloggers before I went and really had no idea what this whole Twitter thing was.

Well unfortunately interactions of such immaturity don't only exist on playgrounds, between children. In the recent years since I have become an outspoken advocate for breastfeeding education, I have been called names. Recently this included "bully," "breastfeeding Nazi," and "Mom cop." Why? ...more
