BlogHer 2009 – The Parties

If you are a blogger, BlogHer is the conference to attend each year. While there will be tons o’ learnin’ going on that weekend, there will also be plenty of opportunities for networking, mingling and cocktailing with fellow bloggers. Because it can be hard to keep track of all the festivities, I thought I’d put together a quick list of some of the hotest parties taking place that weekend.  If I’ve missed one, shoot me an email (shannanb(@) and I’ll add it.

    I never had an idea that there is a community of blogger who gather once a year. I think that’s great, exchanging thoughts not only in the virtual world but face to face. I hope I could also join for this year or maybe the next year.
