BlogHer17 took place this year in warm and sunny Orlando Florida at the stunning Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort. I had the pleasure of attending the opening night of the event and had the great honor to hear so many inspiring women speak during my very short stay.
Since this was my first conference that I actually flew to attend, I was a bit weary of going the whole hog and attending all of the days, so I decided to test my conference confidence and warm up to the event beginning with a splendid 2 day bit of solitude, in which I have called my mommy vacay or #momcation. This was my time to recharge my batteries and relax and unwind. So in reality it meant long days spent in the hotel’s lazy river lagoon and cozying up at night with a bit of reality TV and room service!
When it was time for the conference to begin I was psyched. The amazing female panelists for the keynote included Chelsea Clinton, Cecile Richards, Tai Beauchamp and Margaret Cho among others. I was mesmerized, inspired and so proud to be in the same room with such inspirational women who were changing the world and making no apologies.
After the Keynote, I met up with some awesome bloggers at the hotel bar and I feel like I have really made some new friends. It was such an amazing time for me, short albeit sweet and I cant wait for next year. I’m going full blogger throttle!
So now its back to reality, back to being a lady with her blog. I have to admit there is a bit of a come-down or a con-down after attending such a powerful conference. One thing is clear and that is my resolve to commit to finding my voice and niche in the blogging space, because as I have learned from the event, there is still room for success. What are your BlogHer17 stories and takeaways if you attended? Would love to hear from you! Also if you have any questions for me about the event, feel free to leave them for me in the comments below.
