This week is the annual BlogHer conference which has grown to over 3,000 attendees and is in my hometown! The conference has lots of content with six different tracks and six official parties. Then there are the other events ranging from yoga with Bob Harper (yes, from Biggest Loser) to movie screenings to private cocktail parties. I can’t imagine how many private parties there are that I don’t even know about.
The exhibit hall takes hours to get through if you’re interacting with each brand and learning if they’re a good potential partner for future promotions. I have posts lined up for the week, but we may skip a weekend scoop. There will be more funny pictures like this one I’m sure!

We’re always trying something new in the Yakezie to build relationships and selflessly support each other. This summer it is teams that will visit each other sites, retweet, comment and more. The teams are large enough to have enough variety and small enough to feel like you’re getting to know people much better.
Below are my favorite articles from my summer teammates. Enjoy some great reading.
