BlogHer 12…Who I Met

Please note at BlogHer there is so much walking and carrying of bags of swag to do that wrangling my camera became quite a feat so you will deal with my shortage of DSLR photos and my plethora of iPhone Instagram photos. Unfortunately I still failed to get a lot of photos. There was a lot going on and everything was moving fast and keeping up with a camera wasn’t first on my priority list.

I arrived in New York late Wednesday evening after an awful flight. I’ll spare you the details but just make note that we sat on the runway for nearly an hour after my flight was already delayed by 2 hours.

I digress.

After arriving in NYC Trina and I met up with Tamara of Blitz and Glam at the airport. this was my first time meeting Tamara IRL and she was also my roommate so I was hoping she was just as fab as she looks…and she was.

Shortly after getting settled in I bumped into Brandy of Mama Knows it All in the lobby before heading over to Times Square to find something to eat and snap a pic or two. Here’s one. I’ll show you the rest later in the series.

Thursday evening before the conference “officially” began Trina threw a pretty awesome social mixer at Pranna Lounge where I met a lot of my blogger buddies and a few new faces to include NY State of Mom, Brooklyn Active Mama, Our Delightful Home, Houseful of Nicholes, A Chic Mommy, Army Wife 101, Sister Save a lot, Loom Lids Layers, Justice Fergie, OK Dani, and Harlem Lovebirds

Phew.

So Friday when the conference actually started we had kind of formed one of those “cliques” people hate but I think that is just normal when you are in an environment with nearly 5K people that you don’t know *shrugs*

During the course of the weekend i met so many amazing people to include these lovely ladies Justice Jonesie, Think Feminist, Dr. Goddess, Momma Expat, Just Breathe Mama, and Veronica Armstrong.

I also got to meet Luvvie. She is just as hilarious in real life as she is on Twitter.

Have you met any of your favorite bloggers/twitter buddies IRL? Who would you like to meet if given the opportunity…and no you don’t have to include me on that list!!!!

    It’s great when you meet people you talk to on twitter or on the blogs in real life. Makes you feel like you actually know them instead of them just being someone behind a computer. Everyone looks great.

    I’ve never thought about meeting any other bloggers in real life, but apparently a conferences gives you plenty of opportunities to do that! Wow! So awesome!

    Y’all look great (and you’ve given me a whole new list of bloggers to check out)! Thanks!

    I am definitely going to try to go next year. I’m fairly new to the “business” side of blogging but it looks like a great time. Can’t wait to hear more of your experience. #BLMgirls

    Thanks for including me in your post and for the kind words! It was great meeting you IRL and rooming together! I realized when I got home that I had only taken 1 picture with someone (Trina) the whole weekend with my camera. I’m usually so good about getting photos with people, but like you said, there was so much going on. I look forward to the next conference and hopefully, I will get to Atlanta for an event soon!

    I love you. I love that you found photos of me that I haven’t. I also love that I might have to steal them if that is okay with you because I was in a SUPER funk all weekend. I’ll have to tell you about it. I loved seeing you IRL, and I can’t wait until you come to Chicago (please say you’re coming!!!) and we get to chill some more! It was such a great party and I think that Trina did a spectacular job! Plus, your tootsie roll should be in record books. I’m just sayin’

    Thanks so much for including me in your post. I’m so glad that I had a chance to meet you in person and it was great getting together for some fun and networking with other BLM. I’m working on my recap right now and I guess I need to hurry up since the week is almost over lol. You looked absolutely fab and I still want that necklace 😉 I look forward to seeing you again soon.
