BlogHer and the Explosion in My Head

| | Comments (3)

Wow! My brain has been firing off ideas non-stop ever since I got home from the BlogHer conference last night. I have so many ideas for posts and projects, as well as big chunky thoughts that deserve sitting with and thinking about for awhile. I hardly know where to begin.

Rather than post a conference review, I thought I'd post some quotes I heard throughout the weekend that stuck with me. I tried to capture who spoke the words where I could.

"The universe bows down to the power of women blogging." Jane Goodwin

"It takes a village not just to raise a child, but to nourish the adult. " - Jane Goodwin

"It's karma. It's linky love."

"Writing is not about the words, it's about connecting brains together." - Amy Gahran

"Writing is enforced reflection"

"How you think about writing is as important as the writing itself. It's about the *process*." - Amy Gahran

"I think better through conversation. I don't have to know the answer up front."

"People are more engaged by conversations than monologue." - Amy Gahran

"Blogging is like the mob. I try to get out and they pull me back in." - Mena Trott

I also want to thank the lovely ladies that I had the pleasure of chatting with during and between sessions and over lunches. Some were new faces. Others are dear friends I love so much. You all helped me have a really great experience this year. Thank you.

It was fun, wasn't it!!!!!! I'm sitting here at home in Hayward going through my cards and checking out all the wonderful writing behind the wonderful folks.

I'm honored you included Emergiblog in your list! I didn't expect that and was pleasantly surprised!
: ) You are linked under my "Off Duty Blog" section!

Glad you quoted the excellent Amy Gahran of contentious.com. She was truly inspirational. Great meeting you at the conference and glad you got a lot out of it.

Hi Chiara, it was so nice to meet you. Thanks for the link here and the nice comment about my M. Schiwy post/book recommendation.
Hope all is well with you. Your upcoming Europe trip sounds great!!
