7 Lucky Things I learned from #Blogher13
Last week was Blogher 2013 which is really the BIGGEST Blogging conference of the year. Fortunately it was in Chicago and even better, I was able to attend many of the events, parties, Expo and more. Here’s what I learned….
#2 Scavenger Hunts are always a good idea.
#3 Diet Root beer floats may be an oxymoron but they taste good and promote girl bonding.
#4 Go to the expo and look for brands, causes and other companies that genuinely interest you.
#6 If you feel shy (and chances are you will) ask people about their blogs. “Dear Abby” always says: if you ask people lots of questions about themselves they will think you’re an EXCELLENT conversationalist.
#7 Don’t get caught up with the swag, yes it is lovely and yes it makes you feel like an academy award winner, but it isn’t the end all be all. As much as I love my new Cocoa Cola pedometer, the better part was meeting new friends, making connections and seeing the faces behind so many twitter handles.
Over the course of the next few weeks / months I will do a play by play of some of the more interesting parties and events I attended and tell you the 411 on your favorite brands, products and causes including info from St Jude Children’s Research Hospital. I am also going to talk Back to School (ugh!), beating the no-more summer blues, why I broke up with my non-existant boyfriend and much more! Until then I’m wishing you Shoestrings, Love, Joy and Gratitude, Beth
