Newbie News: BlogHer Food '13

BlogHer Original Post

Hi! I am starting a Newbie News series for all "new conference attendees" like me! I am going through these same questions of How To's and conference etiquette with you. So, please look out for Newbie News: the Newbie Guide to BlogHer Events.

We have our Food Event this June 7-8 in Austin, Texas. How food-y is the conference? The conference has all different levels of attendees and speakers, from chefs to food beginners like me. Personally, I plan on learning more about food by eating it! There is no better way to get knowledgeable about something then jumping right in.
