Yep, that's me (uh, on the right) hanging out with Carson Kressley at the Nikon Event (no, he probably doesn't remember me, I know, still, you believe me, right?) along with about a thousand other women who attended the BlogHer Conference 2009 in Chicago.
Have you heard of BlogHer? I've been a member for...um...what year is it, anyway? All kidding aside (mostly) BlogHer is populated by a great community of women (like me) who happen to enjoy sharing stuff on the Internet AND, more importantly, are inspired by women helping women. Long story short: we make it a habit of supporting each other...both online and IRL.
I missed out on the #BlogHer OG (original Gangstuh) by two years, but I have attended: BlogHer 2007, 2008, 2009 and, along with my dear friend @BusyMom, risked riding in a NYC ambulance in order to save a fellow blogger at BlogHer 2010 (seriously, you just can't make some of this stuff up!) oh, and I left my heart in San Deigo during BlogHer 2012; began working with the Events Team as a contractor for BlogHer 2013 and BlogHer 2014; attended BlogHer 2015 as a full-time SheKnows employee!
I know, right?!?! Full circle!!!! I have been a member of the #BlogHer community since the very beginning. Fun fact: This Full House is a charter member of their ad network, true story! Sooooo, I am so very proud and thrilled to continue my work in helping to promote our blogging community, one that I have grown to love AND adopt as family, because what's one more, right?!?!
