Blogherfood 09

Even getting there was a blast – despite the long flights from Philly to Chicago and then to San Francisco. 

As you can see, I made some new friends on the flight. Mad props to my new homies Nikki and Marissa for making a long flight such a great time and setting the tone for a great 24 hours.

Ah, it’s all such a blur. But the conference was fabulous. I met tons of new friends – too many to name them all, but you can rest assured I’ll be reading and cooking from their blogs very soon. I attended an amazing party thanks in part to this lady – a newspaper gal after my own heart, whose new cookbook is coming out soon.

I attended sessions and  learned that I pretty much suck at SEO, and that no one will probably ever find my site if they are looking for a recipe for dumplings. But that’s ok. I also learned some tricks that might help that. But what do you care about that? YOU know how to make the dumplings. (Or at least how to get me to come to your house and make them for you – Kevin!)

And I guess that’s all that matters because if anything came out of blogherfood, it was having a passion for your blog. Boy do I ever. And some of the other talented bloggers I met this weekend share my enthusiasm for the craft. That’s what makes these events so much fun to attend — because suddenly you are not just the weird girl in your circle of friends who has that blog and won’t shut up about it. You are one of them.

Bottom Line: Whether you are as popular as  The Pioneer Woman (and yes, I got to meet her!) or simply aspiring to be 1/14 as popular as her, you just have to love what you are doing. After that, everything else is gravy.

Hmmmm….speaking of gravy.

  1. It was fun meeting you! What a wild and wonderful weekend this was, eh? 🙂

    • It was amazing. I almost wish it was longer just so I could have soaked it in a bit more, but next year… Also I’m ridiculously excited because I’m making your Porkchops with Mushroom Bourbon Cream Sauce tonight…

    I love what you got out of the conference, that’s how I feel too, to the T. So, here’s to just doing our own geeked out cooking/blogging thing and just enjoying it. And who knows, maybe down the road we’ll be throwing the parties someday (tee hee). So great to hang out with you!

  3. Great re-cap, I couldn’t agree more! So nice to have met you too and I hope to see you again next year! Honestly, the weekend is almost like a blur to me … so many great people, so much good info, I don’t even know where to begin!

  4. Hi it’s the queen of all! Nice to meet you at BlogHer Food sounds like you had a real blast, me too.
