Maybe you’ve noticed the “I’m Speaking” button in my sidebar and have wondered what that’s all about. I’m very honored to have been asked to take part in the Art of Foodblogging Panel at the BlogHer Conference coming up in a couple of weeks in Chicago. It’s a great opportunity for me to get to meet in person several of the food bloggers I’ve come to admire and to talk about the passion that we all share: Food–cooking it, eating it, writing about it, and photographing it.
But you can be there, too! If you’re at all interested in connecting with other bloggers, hearing great speakers (such as Elizabeth Edwards and Amy Sedaris), polishing your blogging skills, or promoting your blog, you’ll find all that and more at the BlogHer Conference, July 27-29. Or, if you’re just interested in food blogging, you can opt to register for only Saturday, July 28, and not only take part in the panel discussion but also get photography tips from the wonderfully talented food photographers Bea of La Tartine Gourmande and Lara of Cook and Eat and Still Life With….
Kalyn of Kalyn’s Kitchen has written up a great summary of what’s cookin’ at the conference, and she’s also keeping a list of all the food bloggers who’ll be attending, so if you can be there, be sure to let her know. There are also plans for a food blogger restaurant outing, probably on that Friday night, and though I’m pretty sure it won’t be in a vegetarian restaurant, I plan to go and see what vegan goodies the chef can whip up. I’d love to see you, so please let me know in the comments if you can be there.
D. and E. will be joining me for part of the conference, and we’ll be doing a little sight-seeing and also checking out some vegetarian restaurants. I already have my heart set on going to Chicago Diner and Karyn’s Cooked, but if you have any other suggestions, I’d love to hear ’em.
Hope to see you there!
