  3. Was going to BlogHer as someone who doesn't use BLogHer ads awkward?

    ReplyDelete
  4. Do you find BlogHer overwhelming? (There seems like a ton to do, in such little time, and then all the partying to fit it in!) Also, is it worth the money / sponsorship you put in to have the access, and does it help you blogging and confidence?

    ReplyDelete
  5. ignore me, saw that it is only US & Canada only :) Still wouldn't mind knowing what you think about my Q's

    ReplyDelete
  6. Yay, swag! My kids cannot get enough tote bags and squeezie balls!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'm thinking about starting to blog. is there any advice you can give or anything you learned at blogher that you might be able to pass on about creating a successful blog?

    ReplyDelete
  8. The keynote speakers. They were so informative and inspirational.

  9. What session or event did you not attend, but wish you did?

  10. Not at all! I think very few of the bloggers there use BlogHer ads.

    ReplyDelete
  11. HTML doesn't have to be a four letter word. I love doing edits on my site and would've loved to learn more.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Only want to one (Bad Dana) but I did love the session on adding comics to your site.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Is BlogHer for newbie bloggers too?

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'll do a giveaway for everyone very very soon so stay tuned!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Very overwhelming! But in a lot of ways the money was well spent because I made a lot of connections with other brands and bloggers. In fact some of the blogger friendships I've made I hope to have for life.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Every moment was a learning experience but any chance I had to be more out going were the moments that will help most with the future of my blogging career.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm a newbie and I loved it! It was crazy overwhelming but I learned a lot just by hanging out with other bloggers.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'd love to know how BlogHer compares to SheCon or Bloggy Boot Camp. (The only blogger conferences I've attended.. so far!)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I've never been to any of those so I unfortunately don't have a frame a reference. I will say that at over 4,500 bloggers it's probably bigger than those.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Are you going next year in Chicago?!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Sadly no. It's happening during the last week of my last year of graduate school. :-( But BlogHer 2014 won't know what hit it! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  22. So.. how was BlogHer? ;) Haha. I've been reading different accounts about it and I'm on the fence if I'm glad or sad I didn't go. Would you recomend it to a first timer or would a different conference be a better starting point?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I don't need any more swag, thankyouverymuch, but I'm wondering whom did you enjoy meeting the most? I'm not fishing for a compliment, I'm genuinely interested :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. What was your favorite part of Blogher? What was your least favorite part?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've always wanted to go to BlogHer and I'm planning on attending next year's in Chicago...How do you go about finding a roommate? What would do next year that you did not do on this past conference?

    ReplyDelete
  26. What event/party/session was your favorite?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Meeting you was probably one of the biggest highlights for me from Blogher!! You are the sweetest person and truly a kindred spirit! :0)

    ReplyDelete
  28. How many business cards did you get?

    ReplyDelete

    Which outfit did you end up buying/wearing from the earlier post? and did you feel you fit in with the other bloggers?

    ReplyDelete
  30. What was your favorite session? I loved my geek bar session on blogger

    ReplyDelete
  31. SO, wasn't that blogger Krista from The NYC Talon amazing? Didn't you just love chillin' with her at your pre-blogher lunch? There. Those are my questions. ;-) Unlike Megan I'm totally fishin' :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Honestly a smaller conference would be better for learning (or it would be for me). BlogHer is a bit like being thrown in to a pool. Sink or swim. But with that said you're not alone and it is a ton of fun!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Don't make me choose!!!! Anyone who actually took time to talk and spend time with me were the people I enjoyed most. You were so on this list! It was nice to have the familiar faces to turn to as I was doing stuff and feeling lost at BlogHer.

    ReplyDelete
  34. My favorite part was the interaction with other bloggers. My least favorite part was the feeling I was being rushed.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I posted that I needed a roomie in one of the forums and it worked out. I'd say shop around for a roommate and find someone with similar interests. If I was going next year I'd go to more sessions and less private parties.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Event: The Keynote lunches Party: Hasbro/Sparklecorn Session: Only went to one.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Didn't use any of them. BUT wearing a cute dress or shirt/skirt combo and flip flops was more than enough. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Only went to one session. Sadly.

    ReplyDelete
  39. She was totally awesome! When are we hanging out again?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Just do it. The hardest part is starting. What BlogHer reinforced for me is that those who are successful are the people who don't give up.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I loved the pics from the Sparklecorn post! What was that, exactly? And how did it relate to the BlogHer conference?

    ReplyDelete
  42. It was one of the official BlogHer parties. Just an excuse to have a blast after a long day of conferencing.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Did u like hanging out in my room?

    ReplyDelete
  44. One of the highlights of BlogHer for me!

    ReplyDelete
  45. So Dana, what did you hope to get out of Blogher12? Was it all you thought it would be? Were there things like "workshops" or sessions to sit in on and learn about others interests and blogs? How many new contacts and friends have you made? Did they announce where BlogHer13 would be held?

    Thanks, Suz (MapleMouseMama)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Can you recommend a similar experience for male bloggers?

    ReplyDelete
  47. Were the parties as fun as they looked?

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yes! I had a blast at the 2 I went to.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Don't let the "her" in BlogHer fool you. There were dudes there and I think it was just a beneficial for them. However if you are concerned about chick overload there is blogworld which I have heard good thing about.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I wanted to get connections. BlogHer was way more overwhelming than I expected. Yes but I only went to one session. I have over 80 business cards but countless friendships/ BlogHer 13 is Chicago.

    ReplyDelete
  51. What's your biggest regret about BlogHer? (if any?)

    ReplyDelete
  52. What was your favorite connection with BlogHer? Did you prefer meeting the companies or other bloggers? I think you and i ran into eachother almost every day! :D (if i can remember, ill shoot you over some of the photos i have)

    ReplyDelete
  53. No regrets but next time I'm at BlogHer I want to do more BlogHer stuff and less outside stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Favorite connection would be all the great people who came to lunch. It's like I had my very own tribe! Bloggers were way better than brands because they are now friends.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Soon! :) Since you're so close by and all :)
