Speaking of BlogHer
Many of my blogging contacts, buddies, friends attended the BlogHer conference in Chicago this past weekend. I've noticed a disturbing trend. Why are so many NOT sharing all the connections made, wonders, swag, talks, readings, etc from the trip? Almost every post I read that mentions BlogHer usually starts and ends with apologies for bringing it up. Huh? I WANT TO READ MORE! Don't make me go and read generic accounts from bloggers I don't know... if I read you and you were there, I want every. single. juicy. detail. I want to hear about every Ree sighting. I want pics of the conference, the meetings, walking around, the parties. I want stories. I want to hear about meeting face to face for the first time. I want to know who you met that you'd been unaware of before. I want to hear about the celebrities who were there. I didn't even consider going but I love to live it vicariously through others. So stop apologizing. And start writing!
