I am home in one piece from a 5 day trip to New York City for BlogHer ’12. Barely. In no particular order here’s some tidbits I learned -
Some cab drivers are fascinated by a conference for bloggers and will ask for your business card so they can email you for help setting up their own blogs. And for help debugging their computers.
Those same cab drivers, once they understand what a blog is, will start giving you post ideas about a troupe of singing and dancing Russian grandmothers.
If you don’t have a somewhat nutritious balanced gluten free meal, and you have my money for that meal, it’s going to take me a long time to forgive you.
Blogger rock. Each and every one of them.
Sock failure will lead to blisters. Choose function over fashion for marching around cities in the sweating hot.
The validity of your message decreases the more you start selling. Share yourself and your experience and I will listen, pour on propaganda and I will start playing cards on my phone.
I like Martha Stewart, more than I thought I would. See above.
Kristin, the podcast – coming soon.
Kristin, the app – not coming ever.
So many ideas, so very tired.
Wifi is not to be counted on, buy roaming otherwise the only way people can find you is by yelling your name in the crowd.
Always pee before getting on a plane, you will be grateful when your plane sits on the runway for 4 hours.
Always bring water and snacks on a plane otherwise you will be dying of thirst and hunger during that 4 hour delay. Bring earphones too.
I love the friends that live in my computer. I miss them. Next year friends, next year.
The excitement I felt about New York City in my younger years is gone. Thanks for everything NYC, but I’m done with you now.
Nothing welcomes you home like a nice young family offering to buy your house.
If click over to Julie at Dutch Being Me or Alex at Late Enough, you might spy me, perhaps making nerdy faces. Now if you will excuse me I have to scrounge around town for boxes and start filling them.
