Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the 2nd outstanding Blogher event, being held at the Hyatt in San Jose. Weather is lovely - warm, sunny, delightful! The hotel...well, more on that another time. Let's talk Blogher ladies!
Rumor has it that there are over 700 of us scurrying about the Mediterranean room here at the Hyatt. It shows! The noise level is off the charts, folks. There's a lot of laughing, a lot of hugging, and a lot of, "Oh my god! It's so good to see you again!" when ladies from last year's Blogher connect again this year. We have women from all over - from here, there and everywhere. It's been so busy, I have only connected with a few of the gals I wanted to see - like Average Jane (Hey, Jane! You never change - always beautiful!).
Saw Jory last night at the speaker's reception. We were treated to good food and good drinks at Maggiano's Little Italy. What fun! Jory is..too thin! She's so dedicated to everything Blogher, and to the B-friend, that one wonders - Jory do you eat? The mother in me took her drink so she could eat. (I didn't TAKE it, I merely held it! I'm not in charge of her - just wanted to help out. Joy would want me to do that.)
Oh - met Robert Scoble. Yep. THAT Robert Scoble. He's better looking and way more friendly than I imagined. He gets my vote when he runs for office. (that will get the rumor mongers chatting away; no - to my knowledge he isn't running for office and has no desire to do so but - as a good techie girl, I think he should. We need someone with skills in the White House.)
Watch for more...coming later. I have reams of notes, already. Patsi and Denis of the Blog Squad are so gorgeous in their pink shirts (but, of course!) and Nancy White is exactly as I imagined - warm, friendly, approachable.
Almost didn't recognize Susannah Gardner with that cool, new haircut. She's one great lady to make friends with. And, she's totally friendly, so hop over to her blog and give her a big hello.
Gotta fly. The Friday nite reception is looming and I don't want to miss the fun! Or, the food!
TTFN - think ORANGE (that's for Susan Getgood, whose room I'm camping out in!)
