What I learned from #BlogHer09
Posted By Beth Terry On August 5, 2009 @ 10:35 am In BlogHer,Events | 28 Comments
Despite the impression I might have given in my previous post, “Blogher ’09 and The Story of Stuff ,” the BlogHer conference was not only about swag and vendors and overconsumption. The experience had a huge impact on me, bigger than I can properly articulate at this point. But for right now, here are my photos and a few thoughts, in chronological order, beginning with Thursday night.
1) It doesn’t really matter if I order my martini with “no plastic spear” for the olives…
6) And perhaps convincing Pepsi not to bring Aquafina bottled water to the event was not the coup we thought it was, since plastic cups were provided for flavored Sobe water instead.
9) I wish I had a travel mug without a plastic top. Working on that. For now, just glad I remembered to bring it in the first place!
So this was fun… posting my BlogHer photos with little quips, even though several of said quips are kind of… um… negative. But it’s how I’m feeling right now. Actually pretty down in the dumps.
My friend Axelle says I should blog about how depressed I am. Let it out. Be honest. I dunno. Does anyone really want to hear me whine?
