School for Bloggers: The mandatory BlogHer recap post that never happened. And won’t. (#BlogHer10)

So. BlogHer. I know, I know. I’m supposed to do a recap of my experience — what was great, what was not so great, which blogger idols I met and what swag I lugged back. But I’m not going to. I just didn’t have time this week and now I don’t feel like it.

Plus, it’s totally unnecessary, since some fabulous writers have already done great recaps. So I’ll share a few of those with you instead.

First, I’ll point you towards the recaps written by my BlogHer roomie and travel buddy Andrea from A Peek Inside The Fishbowl. She wrote about her overall impressions as well as the swag.

Here is Andrea in one of a number of fun art installations that took place on the Voices of the Year Gala evening. She doesn’t like being in photos, which is silly since she has supermodel cheekbones but I don’t think she’ll mind this one because it’s blurry — and cute too!

And then there are the recaps done by The Bloggess, whose twisted humour I always enjoy. Here in her Part 1 of three posts she’s written on BlogHer, you’ll get lots of laughs but won’t learn a thing about BlogHer (which is basically my post except no laughs). She is a total celebrity in the wacky world of blogging and people were lined up to say hello to her. I totally lined up too. And here is my photo with her:

Look at me — I’m practically drooling on the poor woman I am so happy! Seeing Brad Pitt and having him put his arms around me couldn’t make me as happy as this moment.

And last but not least, I would like you to read Shannon from Three Seven‘s  post on BlogHer. I don’t know how she did it, but she managed to describe all of the intensity of the experience in words. The BlogHer she describes is the BlogHer experience I had.

Shannon was one of the artists who created a piece for BlogHer’s “Tell the World, Make it Count” art auction. The proceeds of this auction will be donated to The Nature Conservancy clean-up effort in the Gulf of Mexico. And here she is with her piece:

Shannon’s twitter handle is @zchamu, like the whale. But as you can clearly see, she’s damn gorgeous in addition to being talented.

And there you have the lazy girl’s guide to doing a BlogHer recap!  :)


  1. I think that was a great recapish post.

    Meeting the Bloggess was one of my biggest highlights too. I did it twice and got two photos and was on cloud nine. My photo of us at her typewriter is my fave of the whole conference. I’m lame 😉

    It was great getting to experience BlogHer with you!

  2. i think you are on to something, Julie. “a Lazy Gir’s Guide to __________”. I can think of so many things to fill in the blank. i like it.

    but, how was NEW YORK??????? did you get a chance to see some sites? it’s my most favorite place on the planet!
