Wow! My brain has been firing off ideas non-stop ever since I got home from the BlogHer conference last night. I have so many ideas for posts and projects, as well as big chunky thoughts that deserve sitting with and thinking about for awhile. I hardly know where to begin.
Rather than post a conference review, I thought I'd post some quotes I heard throughout the weekend that stuck with me. I tried to capture who spoke the words where I could.
"The universe bows down to the power of women blogging." Jane Goodwin
"It takes a village not just to raise a child, but to nourish the adult. " - Jane Goodwin
"It's karma. It's linky love."
"Writing is not about the words, it's about connecting brains together." - Amy Gahran
"Writing is enforced reflection"
"How you think about writing is as important as the writing itself. It's about the *process*." - Amy Gahran
"I think better through conversation. I don't have to know the answer up front."
"People are more engaged by conversations than monologue." - Amy Gahran
"Blogging is like the mob. I try to get out and they pull me back in." - Mena Trott
I also want to thank the lovely ladies that I had the pleasure of chatting with during and between sessions and over lunches. Some were new faces. Others are dear friends I love so much. You all helped me have a really great experience this year. Thank you.
