Infertiles Who Lunch @BlogHer ‘10

Posted Aug 10 2010 4:02pm

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.

Oh well!

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 must say one of the highlights of the conference was meeting other bloggers from the Adoption, Loss, Infertility community .

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!

 I had fun such lovelies as Dora from My Preconceived Notion , Briar from Unwellness ,  and Kir from, Kir’s Corner .

And, last but not least, I met a fellow adoptive mom, Lori from Weebles Webblog , who is  featured in this month’s Parenting Magazine as one of the Must Read Moms ; you go girl!

Lunch was such a gratifying, wonderful experience I can’t wait to do it again next year. In San Diego?

Later that day, I met one of my blogosphere idols and I was so moved by that interaction  I will devote an entire post to that meeting later this week, along with photos.

All in all, BlogHer ‘10 was a great experience;  just  don’t quiz me on anything.
