Last weekend I jetted down to San Diego to attend BlogHer 11.  It was a wonderful weekend in one of the best California cities.  I was able to meet up with two blogging friends who author ChicGeek Designs and Be Healthy Well and Inspired.

We toured the 100 sponsors booths, gathering tons of swag and free things I probably don’t need.

I did win a free 5’x7′ area rug from CarptetOne featuring carpet from Lees to my delight!  It actually was the one vendor that fit into my blog category!

I was also able to sit in on some fabulous sessions about blogging in your local community and blog design (you may see a few changes soon!)  Our keynote speaker on Saturday was the CEO of Pepsico Indra Nooyi, who was very inspirational in telling her story of how she got to where she is and the future of her company.

Amidst all the swag, I did receive some good giveaway items so stay posted for those!
