I used many words to describe BlogHer last year: Overwhelming, intense, exhausting. I was glad I went, but didn’t really love it. At all. This year was entirely different. The words that come to mind are fantastic, inspiring, fun, wonderful. To name a few.
I loved meeting up with some of my favorite people from last year…
and meeting so many for the first time.
I loved escaping conference food for pizza instead,
and finding my Maryland girls.
I loved seeing people I’d met up with over the last year,
and reconnecting with an old friend.
I loved bonding with my co-speakers backstage at the keynote,
and realizing that I can, indeed, speak in front of 2400 people.
I loved it all.
And I cannot wait until next year.
