More BlogHer 08 Party Videos: Bloggers to Authors

by Susan

BlogHer brings together bloggers who are at all stages of their blogging journeys. It’s this variety that created fascinating conversations as we mingled at the parties.

Janice chatted with the Rookie Moms who have been blogging since ’05 and together published a book called The Rookie Moms Handbook.

I met a funny — and successful — blogger who I hadn’t read before. Her blog title is White Trash Mom and we talked about how her name is both a help and a hindrance for her site and for her new book The White Trash Mom Handbook.

(I realize that some of our readers may not like the name of her site and book, and for those of you, may I respectfully ask that you just skip past this interview. Thanks!)

I love White Trash Mom! Her blog is great. It’s hilarious and if you need a laugh, do go check it out. It’s great for moms who don’t take themselves too seriously.

I’m loving the videos. It is great to see the Moms behind the blogs. And……YOU two!

Now off to find White Trash Mom’s blog. :D

I love White Trash Mom. Anyone who doesn’t read her because of her blog’s title is missing out. If we can’t laugh at ourselves, what fun is life?

I’m enjoying these videos so much! Thanks for making and sharing them!

Your Canadian accents are cracking me up. :-)

Kudos to both of you for putting together these videos. And the production company did a GREAT job.

Susan–Thanks so much for taking the time to talk to me, I think what you guys have done and are doing with “5 Minutes” is AMAZING. Thanks again for posting this and for your nice words.

Is there a reason you might know of why I can’t see any of your videos at all?
