Blogs I Met at BlogHer07


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!


Can you tell me about this un-conference?

Yeah, I want to write a post about it, I'm just not up for it today. Maybe tomorrow.

Hi Grace--it was rad to meet you. People like you are why I go. I can have intelligent conversations without 4,000 disclaimers. Too bad our lunch table almost got hijack by that Kos nonsense.

It was super meeting you too! I need to do a 'roll-call' post about blogs I met as well. I'm so lazy!

Oh, yeah, no rush. I'm just over here being your demanding public. :)

Hi Grace - Thanks...I used to change my tagline all the time, but I'm kind of stuck on this one now. : )

I loved the unconference too! I want to work on the wiki some more but I haven't had any time since I've been home.

Hi Grace, it was nice to meet you and talk writing at the "unconference." That whole thing was such a great experience.

Thanks for the link! I'm looking forward to checking out your site.
