One of the things I decided I wanted to do while I was at BlogHer was write a post when I returned highlighting all of the new blogs I was introduced to (through their people!) while I was there. I want a list of them for my own reference, of course, but I also thought it would be fun to share them with whomever reads here. Please realize, however, that this list is by no means comprehensive--I am working from notes and collected business cards here, and I know I didn't make it home with all of the cards people gave me. So if I met you and your blog isn't on this list, I do apologize, and trust me, the oversight is not intentional.
So, the blogs!
The Astrologer: the name says it all--an astrology blog by KT
Body Impolitic: a blog about body image done by photographer Laurie Toby Edison (with whom I was lucky enough to talk during day one of the conference over lunch) and writer Debbie Notkin
Confessions of a Cardamom Addict: a beautiful food blog by Jasmine, who I met at the un-conference
Don't Gel Too Soon: a writing-focused personal blog by Cynthia, with whom I spoke at the Day 3 BlogHer un-conference (which was, incidentally, my favorite part of the conference)
A Drivel Runs Through It: personal blog by Patia, who I also met talking about writing at the un-conference
Ellinetha: a personal blog by Melina, who I met at the un-conference
I, Asshole: an old favorite blog, by SJ, who I chatted with about feminism on the first day of the conference
The I'mperfect Mom: a mommy blog by Jenn, with whom I shared a session on writing at the un-conference
Jen Lemen: this is another one that I don't actually remember writing down, but it's an absolutely lovely blog with fantastic visual art as well as good writing
Keeping Track of the Insanity: a personal blog by Melissa, with whom I spoke at the un-conference about boundaries and self-censorship in blogging.
Kerflop: I have no idea when I wrote this down, but I just looked it up and it's a great looking personal blog
LaurieWrites: a personal blog by Laurie, with one of my favorite taglines ever, "Talking about my feelings since 1971." I met Laurie at the un-conference as well.
Notes to Self: a personal blog by Kyran, with whom I don't remember speaking, but of whom I have become a fan based solely on her Ivan Albright post.
Red Stapler: this blog belongs to the lovely photo-taking Suebob. It's a personal blog with a bit o this and a bit o that. Suebob was one of the first people I met at BlogHer and her friendliness really helped me feel comfortable there.
Thought by Thought: a spirituality blog by Tree, whom I met several times over the course of the conference, and who said nice things about my tattoo
ThreeSeven: I don't remember where I met, or if I met, Shannon, but she writes this fun ("wholly disreputable") personal blog
The Word Cellar: a professional writing blog by Jennifer, with whom I chatted about writing at the un-conference
The Write Spot: another professional writing/editing blog, by Anne-Marie
Like I said, this list is by no means comprehensive, but it's at least a place to start. I'll probably be adding to it as I find more cards in the bottom of my many bags. In the meantime, I'm going to be reading!
