I had a great time at BlogHer ‘10 . What struck me the most is how much I don’t know about blogging.
I learned that I don’t have any “influence” and that in order to get it I need to understand many, many technical things. For example, do you know the difference between internal, inbound, outbound links? Or how to leverage SEO optimization, stat counters, and RSS feed? Lastly, do you know anything about google juice? Well, I think I do but just don’t ask me to explain it.
One of the things that I really learned was that I’m not sure I’m ready for prime time. There are some serious mommy bloggers who really know how to work the crowd and I’m not sure I will ever be up to speed.
Anyhoo, the swag was awesome, I got new and improved weebles wobblers, a playdoh kit, and, of course, the ubiquitous water bottle, which never goes out of style in NYC heat!
I was a little nervous to meet the fabulous, Mel, from Stirrup Queens who brought us all together last Friday, but she was awesome in person. And I also to meet Calliope, of IVP fame, from Creating Motherhood ! Yippee!
