Once again, I had a fantastic time at the annual BlogHer conference. Thanks to my sponsor Juice Beauty for helping me out with expenses this year. It's easy to promote a brand that I use and truly believe in!
I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite things from my trip:
Fav Connections - The wonderful green blogging pals that I got to hang out with. Many of them I met for the very first time!
Fav Session - Connecting with Brands from the Inside Out with Susan Getgood, Amie Valpone and Maya Bisineer. It helped me to frame the way I want to work with brands in the future. Promoting small, sustainable brands is a true passion - now to make a living at it! :)
Fav Party - I have to say it's a tie: the Haute Green party put on by Calley of The Eco Chic was full of friendly green-minded folks and the official BlogHer party Sparklecorn - where we danced to 80's tunes into the wee hours!
Fav Expo Booth - Paper Culture - This wonderful card and invitation company prints everything on 100% post-consumer recycled paper. And the designs are crazy cute!
Fav Swag - Dr. Weil's Orthaheel Sandals - Who am I to pass up a free pair of sandals that help improve balance and posture?
Fav Advice - "Find the intersection of what people want/need and what you are passionate about and make that the focus of your blog." Such smart advice. You may even see a survey or two coming your way so I can find out what you, dear readers, really want from this blog....
Fav Food - riceworks gourmet brown rice chips. Now this is my kinda junk food...and the company operates green in many ways!
Fav Perc - Roomie Beth scored a corner hotel room - two walls of windows overlooking the San Diego harbor!
Least Fav Thing - The plastic, disposable plates! Last year we dined on reusable dinnerwear - this year it was plastic. What gives BlogHer? Beth and Amber were true eco-champions - they saved and reused their plastic plates for every meal.
Did you go to BlogHer? What were the highlights for you? Was there anything you would like to see change?
