BlogHer 2010 in New York City – Video Footage Kick Off

by Susan

BlogHer 2010 in New York City was fabulous!

Janice and I had so much fun, it’s hard to recover and fall back inline with reality.

But the joy is that it’s not really over… in some ways, now the fun really begins as we all take time to look at photos, remember and laugh again.

Erica, Susan, Janice, Molly - our videographerAnd if you weren’t there, you know what? You’re still in the same place as those of us who were.

What do I mean???

Well, there was sooooo much happening all at the same time, that we all missed out on 90% of everything. All we could do was taste the moments we were in and now we get to look at everyone’s photos and read their posts and find out what we missed.

I admit that sometimes it’s hard when you see photos of your friends and you’re not in the shot and you realize you missed out on that moment and you have a twinge of that left-out feeling.

But don’t let that feeling take hold. Instead enjoy the moment through their smiles and realize that BlogHer really is a celebration of the profound and amazing friendships that we build virtually through this phenomenal blogging medium.

When we have times to come together in real life it is in a burst of energy, fun and laughs and it’s worth every penny and moment away from our families… but the crux of it all lies here… in the blogosphere!

So come with us now, whether you were in NYC or not, and celebrate the beauty of all the friendships we’ve created and are creating everyday.

Here Janice and I kick off our BlogHer 2010 video footage with some laughs in Bryant Park and Times Square…

I’m so happy you liked it… I think our videographer Molly did such a fantastic job. And she was sooooooo much fun to have around.

I love it. I had such an amazing time. I miss you girls.

We had so much fun with you too Erica. I just wish we got to party together more often.

6 Susan August 13, 2010 at 2:04 am

Wasn’t that so funny? I was killing myself laughing as I hopped over to retrieve it.

Oh I can’t wait to see more, in that short clip I saw so many awesome people. More more, more videos


8 Susan August 13, 2010 at 2:05 am

Wonderful… we’ve got lots more videos coming…

You girls are a trip!! Love it! Can’t wait to see more.

Any heads up on when we’ll hear about the next Disney Social Media Mom’s?

Have a great weekend!

You two are a riot! It was such a fantastic weekend–a total whirlwind–and I wish I were able to hang with you more. When I last saw Janice, she said that Susan had just lost her purse–any luck finding it?!

Thanks for the tease! Can’t wait to see all the fun interviews and such. I have never been to NYC.


12 Jennifer-Eighty MPH Mom August 13, 2010 at 11:02 am

Oh my – thanks for the laugh (the shoe flying through the air)… Yes, I was at BlogHer and it was a blast. My favorite thing about it really was meeting the friends in person that I have become so close with online for the past couple of years. I was really hoping to meet you, but I guess that will have to wait until BlogHer 2011 (I am SO going!).

Seriously too funny! Love the video.


14 Julie August 13, 2010 at 2:16 pm

Your video made me sad we ddin’t meet at blogher10. Maybe blogher11? I loved the voices of the year and the amazing and spunky bloggers who risked their lives, like the young outspoken woman from MidEastYouth. They were inspiring.


15 Amanda August 13, 2010 at 2:19 pm

BlogHer 2010 was an absolute blast and I am so excited for 2011!!! SAN DIEGO!!!


16 Rachel August 13, 2010 at 2:23 pm

I’m so excited that Blogher 2011 is in San Diego. Hopefully that will prevent me from having a repeat of my travel disasters :)


17 Jaclyn Rubly August 16, 2010 at 4:49 am

Hope you ladies had a blast! I can’t wait to attend ( if I do) BlogHer 2010!


18 Nolie August 16, 2010 at 7:10 pm

Love the video. You ladies are crazy. Loved the flying shoe. Look forward to meeting you at Blissdom Canada.


19 Stephanie August 17, 2010 at 2:20 pm

Look at you! You two fit into NYC perfectly. You are glamorous and exuberant, etc.

I’m undecided about BlogHer 2011. It depends where we are in the USA/world. Have you heard about our new venture?
