  1. You’re completely adorable and I’m more than thrilled that your experience was positive. Especially after hearing so many other women talk about the horrors of this years conference. YAY for a great time, and new friends.

  2. I loved meeting you and regretted not having a whole lot of time to get to know you better. We will have to make time here in CO to get together!

  3. Great meeting you — I had no idea you’d gotten sick earlier on Sat! Glad you were able to make it to the green leadership panel :)

  4. Sounds like you had a great time! NYC is so close to here, I’d love to go next year!

  5. Ooooh, you looked gorgeous!!!! :) I wish I could have been there to meet you. Next year!! :)

  6. Great post! A got a feel for what the conference is like from your descriptions and pictures. Also, I like that you are so positive, even when writing about things you didn’t like.

  7. glad I got to see you for a few minutes! hope another meet-up is in the works

  8. You are cute as a bug. Glad you got to go and enjoyed yourself.

  9. I loved reading your first experience. I am so happy you got to go, had fun, and had a good experience. You look so cute in your new clothes too. :-)

    I thought about you a lot over the weekend, but because of my health, I honestly had no desire to go this year.

    I do remember whining about not being at BlogHer last year, so I hope I can make plans to attend ’10 as soon as I can. Maybe the thyroid cancer association will sponsor me. LOL.

    Thanks for sharing your experience, and you can show me the ropes next year. :-)

  10. Bummed, I didn’t get to meet you in person. But your jewelry looked awesome in pix!
    hope to see you next year IRL!

  11. Sounds like a blast! Thanks for the pics and updates. It was fun to make connections even though I didn’t make it. Maybe next year…NYC is just a hop, skip and a jump away ;-)

  12. I just loved hanging out with you (and everyone) at BlogHer! It was so inspiring to see and meet with all the people I’ve been reading and chatting with for the last few years! I came back inspired and ready to blog more!

  13. Thank you for sharing your experience. I have read and heard so much about it on BlogHer, it is fun to hear all the individual stories.

  14. Don’t think I got the chance to meet you, but wish I had…I’ll be sure to try and keep up with your crunchy posts. My efforts at organic veggie gardening were smashed (literally) while I was away at BlogHer. Major storm with tons of hail in our area. Caused a lot of damage. Very sad.

  15. I’m glad it went so well. I hear you on the consumption/waste thing – I often feel kind of surreal when I come across events where this is all happening. Like I’m out of synch with it all. ;-)
    I see Whitney (from SK) was there too..

  16. Great review thanks for sharing your experience with those of us who did not make it to BlogHer09. Perhaps next year you can help them get more on the green track.

  17. Hooray! I’m so glad you had such a great time. Sorry you got sick but glad it went away quickly. When I went last year I tried to get to a breakout session each time but finally became aware after popping in and then leaving a few (because the subject matter was either too focused – there was one about photography that was specifically for photographers and I am not one of those – or too heavy) that I was completely saturated and couldn’t take any more in. I went back to my room and tweeted, called my family, and just basically chilled out for a while. So I hear ya!

  18. Meeting you was one of my highlights at BlogHer, you are as nice as I imagined, and I just wanted to take you home with me :) I agree with you – the swag hunting made me sick, but I was happy that they had organized the swag recycling center where you could take things you didn’t want to take home. Hope to see you next year in NYC!

  19. Amy,

    It was wonderful to finally meet you at BlogHer. We all have preconceptions of our favorite bloggers, and I have to say, you were nothing like I imagined…because you’ve been so open about your struggles, I expected you to be a bit down…but you were so bubbly and so much fun! And just beautiful — your pictures do you no justice! It must be that happy “green glow” inside.

    Like you, I had my share of ‘Eco-Confessions” – primarily about the swag, which I shared on my blog.

    Thanks for including that cute picture of me and some of the other green bloggy gals!

    Look forward to keeping in better touch!

  20. Hi,
    I surfed on over from another site listing BlogHer posts.
    I’m thinking about doing BlogHer next year. Hopefully we can swing it and at least one other summer trip. We are thinking about going to Europe with my daughter’s class next June!
    Glad you had some fun.
    The photo cuff looks neat, I bookmarked the site. Perfect MIL gift!

  21. I enjoyed meeting you, Amy. It was great to talk with you at lunch, can’t wait to see you next year!


  22. Great recap! You did great on the microphone during the green blogging session, I’d have never guessed you were a bit nervous about that.

    Too funny about the similar post titles.

  23. It was so great to meet you! I’m a bit embarrassed because I probably talked your ear off. Which is what happens whenever I’m horribly nervous when meeting someone whose blog I adore. :)

    Also: love the bracelet!

  24. Sounds like you had a great time despite your fears. That’s awesome. Hope to join you ladies next yr. in NYC – here’s to a greener conference! BTW- you look great in all your pics. :)

  25. Hi Amy. I wish we could have hung out more. You looked fabulous. It’s kinda funny that you ended up drinking Pepsi for your tummy. I ended up drinking Pepto Bismol for mine. Yikes. And now I have a cold.

    Even though I had some serious issues with the commercialism of the conference (which I’ll be writing about today as soon as I can get my act together) I thoroughly enjoyed meeting people like you who I only knew online. I wish we could have a smaller swag-free green blogger conference with a lot of time to hang out and get to know one another.

  26. Hi Amy,

    Really great to meet you at BlogHer – even though it was brief. Let’s keep in touch via posts and tweets and hopefully we’ll see each other next year!

  27. It was so great to meet you in person and hang out at BlogHer! My stomach was doing flip flops all weekend due to the lack of real food (although it was better than in past years I’m told), lack of sleep, and stress to meet everyone and attend every session I possibly could.

    Room service! Duh, I could have ordered hotel room service to get food to quell the samba in my stomach from living on finger food all weekend. Caulk up a lesson learned for next year.

  28. You’re the cutest thing ever. SMOOOOOCH!


  29. Wow, sounds like this was a great experience! I’m new the blogging world and have thought about attending a conference – I think you’ve just helped me make up my mind! Love your site by the way – gave me lots to think about as I’m trying to blog my way through the decision of whether or not to have kids.
