This year's all-women blogging convention, BlogHer, successfully wrapped up yesterday and, let me tell you, the estrogen level was fierce!
I must say, it was empowering to see that many women (and a handful of brave men!) come together to discuss issues from their kid's peanut allergy to race and gender in politics. Watch out, non-participating boys, I think us girls are going to take the blogging world by storm!
Or have we already?
One thing I would love to see more of is us food writers, stylists and photographers. So, my goal for the next year is to network with as many "foodistas" as possible. Organizing and networking is such a beautiful thing. Let's show 'em what we got! You know where to find me, I'll be looking for you.
Here are just a handful (there were many!) of the people I met and who inspired me - or just made me laugh!
Elise Bauer, BlogHer presenter and food extraordinaire, from Simply Recipes
Kalyn Denny, 3rd-grade teacher, BlogHer writer and foodie wrangler, from Kalyn's Kitchen
Carolyn Jung, journalist and fellow food-lover, from Food Gal
Lori Falcon from My Wooden Spoon - Where it's perfectly legal to use a little pot and A Cowboy's Wife
Marie Millard from Marie Millard - I'll Have A Cafe Mocha Vodka Valium Latte To Go Please
Sara Rosso from Ms. Adventures in Italy, all the way from Milan, Italy!
Jessica from Bernthis.com - Stories of a Neurotic Woman's Journey Through Her Weekly Visits to Her Therapist
Note to the New York Times: I know you photographed me. A nice little shot of me furiously blogging away on my Foodista-logoed laptop (like the picture above). Where's my front page spread? Smack dab in the Food section would be delicious, thank you.
