I suppose officially BlogHer ended Saturday night. I’m just getting around to talking about it today–it’s been a long couple of days on re-entry.
The highlights and most important things I realized are summed up nicely on Grown In My Heart. Meeting those women in person, sharing meals, brainstorming and getting reprimanded by hotel security–well, it bonds people. That was absolutely the best part of the weekend.
Networking with others was also a great part of the weekend–meeting other bloggers and companies that “get” the online community, was fantastic. Seeing my friends from Hallmark, and celebrating Christmas in August was magical.
The two actual workshop session which were most helpful were the two relating to resume writing/online profiles and offline networking for online people.
The expo halls were overwhelming, but a lot of fun. After sorting through all of my swag, I have come up with a list of just a few things I want to talk about in the future.
I also came home with so many reusable shopping bags that I really have no excuses–I can never use another plastic shopping bag again.

So great to finally meet you and the GIMH gang!
I want to know more about the hotel security encounter!
Lori, it was GREAT to meet you too!! As far as the hotel security encounter goes….apparently, the GIMH gang was a bit TOO loud one night, and we got a reprimanding phone call!
