I had a ton of fun at the BlogHer conference. I met nice bloggers who write all types of interesting blogs about their life experiences and passions. I met business representatives eager to work with bloggers and social media influencers. I got friendly with Medieval Times and the knights even let me hold their sword!
In between conference events, I lounged by the pool and enjoyed the hot tub. The Hilton Bonnet Creek was an excellent choice for the conference location. Did I mention they have a lazy river? I really liked this hotel, I had a pleasant stay. After 5 PM many of us headed to the Zeta Asia restaurant to get some work done and for happy hour drinks and sushi.
The conference had some great parties too. The parties provided a perfect place for business and making friendly connections. I found the business casual atmosphere in a vacation setting to be extremely relaxing. After the conference events, many of us enjoyed live music and pizza by the pool at Beech restaurant. After the pool we headed over to Myth Bar in the hotel lobby for continued socializing.
The celebrity speakers were inspirational. Famous volleyball player Gabrielle Reece talked about the importance of disconnecting from technology. You can see a clip from her talk and my conference experience in the video below (Karla Vision). Serena Williams and Chelsea Clinton also spoke at the conference.
Here are all the photos I took at the conference, I hope they give you a deeper look into everything that took place. Perhaps I will see you there next year?
