A Newbie Speaker and Attendee at BlogHer '13: My 5 Favorite Things

Owly Images

A week has passed since I spoke at the Newbie Networking Workshop at BlogHer '13. I attended the conference as a n00b attendee and first-time speaker (although, not a newbie speaker outside of BlogHer) and wanted to share five of my favorite (fun) things about the experience.

Maybe you'll share one or two of your favs in the Comments? 

1) Guy Kawasaki and me on the same electronic signage...say whaat?? (He's one of my biz-related heroes!)Owly Images


2) My pal, Maria Ross (of Red Slice and Rebooting My Brain fame), and me posing for this Honest Tea snap for the #honestcompliment campaign. Luv her and their teas!Owly Images 

3) Meeting Optimus Prime in the flesh and getting a snap with him...whaaat?

5) Meeting and hanging out with some fab new women such as Carrie Drephal, Sarah Wilde (she won a copy of my book!), Julea Jane Joseph and these two lovely ladies, Danielle Faust and Katerina of the not a diet-food food blog @diethood:

P.S. I had such a great time and hope I'm invited to participate as a speaker again, so I can apply all I learned at this one to the next BlogHer conference!
