One in a series of posts about Blogher 12 in New York City
In a previous post I advocated a couple of distribution systems for the Blogher limited attendance events. I will have to give Getting Gorgeous credit for a distribution system that really did reach out to a wide cross-section of bloggers.
They issued invites for 2/3 of the slots, and had 200 slots open for the general blogger population. Inviting 600 bloggers to your sessions - so impressive. Opening it up with warning, so bloggers did not have to put life on hold to get in - also classy.
Of course I still didn't get in. I had already wasted too much time Twitter-stalking and had turned Twitter off. When this extremely humane system was announced I was focused on getting my real life in order so I could attend Blogher. I am a Coldwater Creek One Creek customer and half my wardrobe is CC, so I was sad to miss out.
On the other hand, my opinion of the Getting Gorgeous crew is extremely positive. I actually enjoy reading their tweets. They're still on my list of bloggers I want to meet, greet, and learn from. So t@verasweeney and @gettingorgeous please tweet me @momisageek. I am turning the Twitter stream back on for conference week.
