Yesterday, I attended BlogHer Boston.
I’d never been to a BlogHer Conference. I had just had my baby Henry this past summer when the San Francisco BlogHer kicked off, so it wasn’t an option for me to go.
But Boston? Oh, I was there.
Lisa Stone, Jory Des Jardins, Elisa Camahort Page and Kristy Sammis of BlogHer put together an amazing Conference. It was fun. It was informative. It was organized. And it was a wonderful way to connect and to network with fabulous women.
I brought along my little man Henry, who spent the day wide awake… and going back and forth between wanting to be held, in his stroller or flirting with Chicky Chicky Baby’s, C.C. I was apprehensive about bringing him because I wasn’t sure how many other women would be bringing their babies, but I felt so comfortable and at ease when I walked in and Jory Des Jardins came over to admire Henry in his stroller. Ahh… sigh of relief.
From the Opening Session (which was awesome with its “speed dating-esque” meet and greet – loved it!), to the 3 separate Break-Out Sessions, to the fabulous Charlene Birkeland presentation over lunch, to the Geek Lab available all day, to the GM RIDE AND DRIVES(!)… the whole day was perfect.
I’m a talker. It’s what I do. So I especially loved being able to have the opportunity to chat with as many women as I could throughout the day. Jenna from LeapFrog. Robyn and Steve from General Motors. Laura and Victoria from 360 Public Relations. Sallie from Hooked on Phonics. And Katie and Perri from Playtex Baby. Playtex Baby even interviewed women throughout the day about motherhood. Check mine out:
So BlogHer… I’ll be back. Wherever you are, I’ll find you. If I didn’t have a birthday party today and a family gathering tomorrow – I would be on my way to D.C. right now!
(And, PS – Laura Fitton @Pistachio – you rocked yesterday! My mom was sending notes to herself via Blackberry during your session!)
Thanks, BlogHer, for a day filled with exactly what I needed!
