BlogHer 2010 Link Up

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.”

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!!!

      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.

      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

    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.

    • says

      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.

    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 :)

    • says

      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!!!

    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…

    • says

      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.

    • says

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

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

    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. 😉

    • says

      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

  6. says

    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 :)

  7. says

    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? 😉
