Caught On Video – The Messy Twins Behind 5 Minutes For Mom

by Susan

Okay, this is embarrassing…

In fact, it’s so embarrassing that we weren’t even going to publish it.

We laughed and laughed as we watched it over and over, but we thought it was a bit TOO real to share with the rest of the world.

But, as I read Janice’s post yesterday about how to get the most FUN out of blogging conferences, I thought maybe we’d let you all in on the laugh that Janice, Erica, Louise and I had with our camera girl in the middle of the final night of BlogHer’10 in New York.

In this video we reveal the crazy mess of our hotel room and the mad life we lead during our BlogHer video shoots.

Now, before I show you this… I assure you that we ARE capable of keeping a hotel room in decent shape and Janice has had many blogging conference roommates who have not kicked her out.

(I’m a little scared that when we show you this video that neither of us will ever get a blogging conference roommate again. But, really it’s only when the TWO of us get together at BlogHer that it is THIS bad.)

Okay… Here it goes…

Pretty bad, hey?

Well, BlogHer’10 in New York was especially crazy because we were shooting video at a bunch of different off-site party locations. We were taking cabs and running around the streets of NYC trying to make it to as many parties as we could.

The hotel room is overflowing with swag — most of which we ended up giving to the hotel housekeeper the next morning as we couldn’t take it all on the plane with us.

I think this year BlogHer’11 in San Diego will be very different. I’m guessing there won’t be so many off-site events and I know I won’t be using up precious time in a cab, stuck in traffic, trying to get to a party.

But don’t think for a moment I’m complaining… BlogHer’10 in New York was so much fun and a most unique blogging conference. It was an experience of a lifetime.

What About You?

So tell us… are you going to BlogHer in San Diego? Have you ever been to BlogHer? What about any other blogging conferences… have you been? Do you want to go?
