BlogHer 2010 Link Up

by Janice

BlogHer 2010 was a fabulous blur of parties and friends and fun. Susan and I had such a blast.

It was our favorite BlogHer conference so far. Why? Because we were partying in New York City with our incredible blogging friends!

blogher10-jan-sue-times-squareThe taste of NYC added extra spice to all the off-site parties and brand sponsored events. I loved that we had tons of opportunities to get outside of the hotel and have some real New York experiences — crazy cabbies and all.

I went on an Ellis Island tour thanks to Liberty Mutual, we shot video in Bryant park (and were asked to shut down by the NYPD since we didn’t have a permit) and we partied roof top style and drank in the New York sky line thanks to Hallmark… and so much more.

We even walked (and shot video) in Times Square at 3am. It is amazing how lit up and bright Times Square is even in the middle of the night. People were all around and it felt like the middle of the day. They aren’t kidding when they say, “The city that never sleeps.”

kmart designThanks to Kmart Design we shot and will be publishing a ton of video posts in the coming weeks, so make sure you watch our feed.

But there was so much we missed out on… There were parties happening everywhere and all the time. Thousands of bloggers that we wanted to hang out with… so much more we’d have loved to experience, but that is the tragedy of BlogHer. Too much to do in too little time.

Janice snapped this shot while a few of us tweeted at the ultra-chic Nate Berkus event organized by our friend Meredith. From left to right, Jenny, Jyl, Jane, Susan, Molly, and Jen.


So… let’s all relive it together… we can remember the bits we did get in on and find out what we missed.

It was so great to see you ladies, even though I only caught one glimpse of Janice (I really thought you were just pretending to be there). But I was so thrilled to get a chance to talk for a while to Susan and Erica! Hope to see you again soon!!!


2 Susan August 13, 2010 at 2:07 am

That is the sad part about BlogHer… it goes by in a blink and you don’t have enough time to hang out with everyone you want to see.

But I’m glad I did get to see you, even if it wasn’t long enough.


3 Zelma August 10, 2010 at 10:30 pm

So jealous that I wasn’t able to go!! Can’t wait for BlogHer 11 :)


4 Susan August 13, 2010 at 2:07 am

Yes, SanDiego will be awesome… I’m already wanting it to come!

when jyl and I sat on the bench to rest our heel-wearing weary feet, we had no idea how much fun we were getting into….loved hanging with all these lovely ladies and everyone who walked by! :) fun night!!!


6 Susan August 13, 2010 at 2:08 am

So funny! Yes, it worked out wonderfully, didn’t it? That’s one of my favorite pictures from BlogHer.


7 Stephanie August 10, 2010 at 10:57 pm

I’m so glad this was your best BlogHer experience yet. You two look fabulous (as you always do).


8 Susan August 13, 2010 at 2:09 am

But oh how we MISSED YOU!!!!!!


9 The Bargain Shopper Lady August 10, 2010 at 10:59 pm

I saw you Janice at the Hallmark Party but I didn’t get to meet you! Your Kmart Design dress was cute and whoever did your hair did an awesome job!

I was so late getting to the Hallmark Party that almost everyone had left already. I felt like I was constantly late to everything… LOL


11 Louise August 11, 2010 at 12:09 am

BlogHer was so much fun, I’ll be sure to go back next year when it’s in San Diego. Have you guys caught up on sleep yet? It took me a while to feel human again after staying up all night.


12 Susan August 13, 2010 at 2:11 am

Louise, we had such a blast hanging out with you. I’m so glad you joined us on our late night walk to Times Square.

It’s taken me a long time and a lot of sleep to recover.


13 Marilyn (A Lot of Loves) August 11, 2010 at 12:10 am

We didn’t get a chance to talk beyond a quick hello at the Getting Gorgeous event. Since we live in YVR, I’ll hopefully run into one of you sometime and chat longer.


14 Susan August 13, 2010 at 2:12 am

Oh that’s wonderful that you live in Vancouver!!! We definitely must connect here.


15 Tarasview August 11, 2010 at 12:17 am

oh it looks like so much fun!!! You both look fabulous in that picture and the texting shot cracked me up :)

I am praying and hoping that somehow miraculously I will get to go to Blissdom in Toronto – slightly more reachable than BlogHer11 for me… but very slightly :)


16 Susan August 13, 2010 at 2:13 am

I hope you can make it to Blissdom in Toronto… Janice will be there for sure. And BlogHer11 is far away… maybe it’ll come together. But get a passport girl!!!


17 laura August 11, 2010 at 12:30 am

my first BlogHer was so much fun! I have few disappointments like not having nearly enough time to meet some of my favorite bloggers, including the two of you. I did get to say, “Oh, hey, hi!” as you were heading down in a very crowded elevator. Perhaps the next BlogHer…


18 Susan August 13, 2010 at 2:14 am

I think people I only got to say a “Oh, hey, hi!” to many people on the elevators… LOL

I just wish we’d had more time… isn’t that always the way.


19 Dagmar Bleasdale August 11, 2010 at 9:29 am

We only got to say hi after the Nate Berkus show, but it was nice to run into you! I link to your Wordless Wednesday every week :)

20 Susan August 13, 2010 at 2:15 am

Wasn’t the Nate Berkus event fabulous? I loved it.

Thanks so much for joining in the Wordless Wednesday fun… we really appreciate it.


21 Funkidivagirl August 11, 2010 at 9:56 pm

Sorry that I missed you at Blogher (it was so huge!), but glad to read that you had such a good time.


22 Susan August 13, 2010 at 2:15 am

Wasn’t it just crazy huge???


23 @LastMinuteMandy August 11, 2010 at 10:41 pm

I would have loved to have seen you guys again! I’m glad you had a fantastic time – there was just so much to do! And I’m so jealous you got to see Central Park – even if you did get in trouble there. ;)


24 Susan August 13, 2010 at 2:16 am

Oh no, it wasn’t Central Park, just Bryant Park… a small park near the Nikon party. I wish we’d had time to go to Central Park. I just drove by it in a taxi. LOL


25 Deb - Mom of 3 Girls August 12, 2010 at 3:45 am

I wish we’d had more of a chance to talk – just caught a glimpse of you ladies at the Hallmark party. But it was definitely an amazing time in NYC! :)


26 Susan August 13, 2010 at 2:17 am

I know… sooooo sad we didn’t get time to hang out and chat up a storm. I’m happy you had a great time too.


27 TONYA August 12, 2010 at 1:33 pm

I absolutely loved seeing you gals again, even if it was just briefly in the hotel lobby and at the Nate Berkus party. Like ships passing in the night :)


28 Susan August 13, 2010 at 2:18 am

Yes, we were all a lot of ships passing very quickly by. LOL


29 Michelle August 16, 2010 at 11:06 pm

Oh we had so much fun at BlogHer – I never found you ladies, but with 2400+ people, it’s hard to find everyone. So much fun… and less than a year until the next one, right? ;)
