BlogHer 2012 Conference Recap

BlogHer '12Blogher 2012 hit New York City this past weekend and the blogosphere is buzzing with reactions. Over 4500 bloggers and hundreds of brands gathered at the Hilton New York for a weekend jam-packed with classes, parties, and other events. A few of the highlights of this year’s BlogHer conference were hearing from President Barack Obama via live video stream, and live appearances from Martha Stewart and Katie Couric.

As I reflected back on my own experience at BlogHer this year, I realized that most of my favorite moments this weekend were not connected with Blogher at all. So many of my best BlogHer take-aways occurred off-site or between events in the Hilton. Here is a round-up of post-BlogHer posts from other attendees:

BlogHer Take Away by Safire from Waterfalling-Up – Safire reflects on her own blog after attending the “Blogging because you love it” class.
