The Real Dirt on Going to a Food Blogging Conference

BlogHer Original Post

You know about the comfortable shoes, the business cards, and whether or not to bring your laptop, but do you know about the squeeing? And the secret trips to the bathroom to use your phone to figure out who someone is (and follow them on Twitter)? And how to crash the private parties? No? Then you need to read Eat the Love's post about attending a food blogging conference. Mostly because it's just really really funny.

You’re going to a food blogging conference. It’s your first one. Or maybe it’s your fifth one. Regardless, you’re excited, nervous and maybe just a little be confused as to why you are spending large sums of money to fly somewhere to meet people you really don’t know in person (yeah yeah, you’re TOTALLY BFF with them on Twitter, doesn’t count).

So who is going to BlogHer Food this weekend in Austin? And who is now thinking about going next year after reading Eat the Love's post?
