At this time next week, I’ll be in San Jose after experiencing BlogHer 2014. It’s my fifth consecutive BlogHer conference and every one has been a little different. There’ll still be a couple of celebrities (see me and the Jimmy Dean sun above from 2010) and a few parties, but there’s a lot more focus on community this year.
As always, I’ll share my experiences with you after and hopefully have a few more cute pictures like this one. Now on to my favorite posts from the past week.
