Over the next few days I’ll be working through my heap of business cards visiting bloggers I met at BlogHer. I hope to feature
30 20 a bunch of them each day until I get through my heap of cards.
Candy from Barrier Free Travels happened to be the first person whom I traded cards with at the conference.
Living-inTheory.com Sugar and I found ourselves having a meaningful conversation in a restroom, of all things.
I met Mena the founder of SixApart and her beautiful little daughter at a very crowded Typepad party on Saturday. She now writes for Nested.typepad.com and at her personal blog http://www.dollarshort.org.
Stephanie O’Dea writes A Year of Crockpotting and I think I am remembering correctly when I say that she may have a book deal soon.
I met Sahar from FatFighterTV.com on Sunday. Her site looks interesting, especially if you’re needing a little moral support in the weight loss department.
Esther video-blogs at Faint Starlight. When I went over to chat with her, I was delighted to learn that she and her husband are hoping to adopt from Ethiopia in the next few years.
Debbie (Delicious Baby ) and I traded cards at the Saturday evening Dooce keynote. Her site shares tips for traveling with children.
Sandie Chen writes movie reviews for Common Sense Media. If I am remembering the right person, she brought her adorable baby with her, which is how I got chatting with her in the first place.
Ayelet from Pursuing Adventures in My 40’s has another interesting-looking blog.
Zoe’s morning toast blog looks like a very interesting and eclectic mix. I won’t swear to it, but I think I met her outside the cheeseburger party (just as the whole mob was being evicted). Chilihead and I were headed to chat with Babywearing Steph whose room was right across the hall from the party, so we hid in the stairwell for a few minutes so as not to be part of the security sweep.
Mary writes In Women We Trust. She and I had a great time talking gardening at the nightclub party on Friday night, even if we did have to holler to be heard over the din. I was telling her about the fun I’d been having meeting people, and how I’d been able to find common interests with so many different people. She laughed and said, “That’s called getting older!” If so, it is a nice side effect!
I was thrilled late on Saturday to finally find Carmen from Mom to the Screaming Masses. I’ve read her blog for years, and she is even more fun in person than on her blog.
OK, I’m tired now…more peeps later!
