VlogTalk: #BlogHer11 in Pictures

YouTube Preview Image

Sorry for the poor quality on some of the pictures. Since I’m lame I forgot my regular camera in the room so the only pictures I captured were on my iPhone.

I’m sure at some point in the next week I’ll be writing something about BlogHer11 but right now I’m still processing my opinions.

      I’m still undecided on writing a recap post but if you really want my opinions let me know and I’ll email you.

        *I* really want your opinions. Wondering if it’s for me (next year).

        Great video! From the pics it looks like it was fun??

        • Jessica D Torres says:

          There were definite ups and downs. I have a couple recap posts I have written but if I don’t post them I will definitely email them to you if you want to read.

          • Girl, I’d love to read some details. Email me?

            Me too. Read your post from today, but I sense there’s more to the story. Sorry it wasn’t all good news. Sounds like you had some good experiences. Would love to hear what else you thought about it and what you’d do differently if you go next year! I really appreciate you sharing your thoughts, Jessica!

    That sounds scary “Processing my opinions”
    I LOVED meeting you and can’t wait until next year!

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      I’m really mixed on my feelings about the conference. It had ups and downs for me.

      Very glad I got to meet you several times. You were a bright side to my trip for sure.

    Very nice! That yoga picture almost made me wish I had gone. But not quite.

    Looking forward to hearing your carefully processed opinions. ;)

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      There was no way I would have made that yoga event. Way too early in the morning.

      Still not sure if I’m going to do a recap post but I’m thinking.

  11. Elena
    Twitter: elenawollborg

    Love it! So wish I would’ve been there with you. I say we just go hang out in San Diego for a weekend.

  12. Anne says:

    Crazy early morning yoga? Who has time for yoga at a blog conference! Too fun. Am watching for your recap!

    Twitter: grumpygrateful

    You are super photogenic! How fun to meet those women. I loved seeing your photos. I am intrigued that you are processing.

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      I felt like I had ups and downs in the trip. Overall it was good but I’m confused I guess is the word that fits best.

    Twitter: kiddothings

    It looks like you had loads of fun! You look great! I was surprised to see Mama Kat looking so much bigger than you.

  15. Bridget
    Twitter: Twinisms

    Looks like you had fun! It’s neat to put faces with all of the bloggy names:)

    Those are awesome.So glad you got to meet everyone. I want to go next time!

  19. Fun pics! I’m looking forward to your post because I know you’ll be honest about the experience, and I’m still not sure I want to go next year.

  20. Eve
    Twitter: EverythingEvie

    It looks like you had a lot of fun! If you don’t do a recap post, shoot me an email with your thoughts, please? I’m thinking of going next year and really want to make the right choice since it is a lot of money for a trip like that. Since you and I are a lot alike, I’d really value your thoughts on the conference. Thanks, Jessica!

    So cute! And I’m happy my belly made the cut. :)

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      I left the picture of us in bed together out of the video but I couldn’t leave the belly out.

      • Robin @ Farewell, Stranger
        Twitter: FarewellStrangr

        Oh yeah, you didn’t post the picture of us in bed! Damn woman, that was the best one. (Except my husband pointed out that it looks like I’m groping myself so maybe it’s best that you didn’t include it…)

  22. blueviolet says:

    omg, we didn’t even meet!!! WHAT THE HECK.

  23. Amy
    Twitter: amyplus1x3

    Oh I so wish I could have went! Looks like you had a lot of fun!

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      Next year BlogHer is in NYC which is closer for you. I don’t think I’ll be there but it would be a good experience for you.

    Twitter: anoptimisticmom

    Looks like a great time. I love that everyone was listed by their twitter name. I felt like saying oh, yes I know her. lol

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      I had to ask everyone what their Twitter handle was to remember who they were. It was a little sad.

  25. Ma What's For Dinner
    Twitter: whats4dinnerma

    Looks like fun. So fun to see so many of you ladies I know together in one place. Can’t wait to hear what you thought of it. I’ve heard so many different takes on Blogher.

    Lots of yummy love,
    Alex aka Ma What’s For Dinner

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      I had ups and downs in my trip. Most of the recap posts I have read so far have been close to how I felt about the trip.

    —Oh! that made me want to be there BADLY.

    How fun talking and eating and drinking with other bloggers :)

    Great Video. xx

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      There wasn’t much eating but there was plenty of drinking and talking. It was fun to meet bloggers in person.

    How fun! I hope to meet other bloggers IRL some day!

  28. Julie says:

    I’m loving your pictures… and so jealous that you got to see Nichole, Rachel, MamaKat and so so so many others! :( Next year, I’m there!

  29. Roxanne says:

    I am so jealous. Now I really want to go next year. But NY? Damn.

    I’m glad you had fun though. It must have been great to get away for a little while & meet such amazing people.

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      They are also having a writers conference in NY this year. That would be good for you if you were able to go.

    Twitter: amommyinthecity

    Pictures are great! Looks like an amazing conference. Can’t wait to hear all about it.

  34. looks like you rocked BlogHer! sucks we kept missing each other. Funny, I didn’t see gym shorts in ANY of those pictures. :)

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      Surprisingly I only wore my gym shorts at night. I’m so sorry we missed each other. Next time we will have to exchange cell phone numbers so we don’t have the same problem.

  35. Wonderful pictures! I am glad you got to go.

    Love the pictures friend!

    I so hear you on the ups and downs and I adore that you’re taking the time to think things through before you post!


    • Jessica D Torres says:

      I have a couple posts written about my thoughts on BlogHer but I’m not sure if I’m going to publish them yet.

  37. Leigh Ann
    Twitter: latorres

    Looks like so much fun! I’m super pumped to go to a blogging conference now.

  38. Tonya says:

    I wish we had gotten a photo together. :(

    You met some cool peeps.

    So awesome – I so loved meeting you. xoxo

    I would love to read your recap of the event. From the bits & pieces I’ve read (positive & not-so-positive), I feel pretty confident that BlogHer is not for me.

    Your pictures are lovely and I love San Diego.

    And Monterey.

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      I would have to say that I agree that BlogHer would not be the right place for you. I think you would do better at a smaller conference.

  41. Rachel {at} Mommy Needs a Vacation
    Twitter: mommyneedsvaca

    You were SO GOOD about taking pictures!!!!!!! That is because you have an iPhone. My phone SUCKS. I took NO pictures. I am a loser. Would love for you to send me the ones that I am in!!

    I loved meeting you and wish we had more time together. I am not sure how I feel about this conferences…too big, too many people…blah, blah, blah….

    PS- LOVE your song in video!!!

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      I will send you that one. My phone didn’t take great pics at night because it was dark. I had my camera but I left it in the room the whole time. #Fail

      I thought this song fit perfect for the overall feel of the conference.

  42. Leighann says:

    AHHH! I could watch that 100 times!
    I wish there was more… looks soooo fun!

  43. What a great view. It looks like you had a wonderful time!

  44. I think my favorite is the crazy yoga people ;)

    Jessica, you looked great in all of the pics! Wow, you got to meet Mama Kat! It looks like you had a good time:) Love that sweet Nicole from Moments That Define Life!

    Great pics, even if they are are from you phone! I’m so glad I got to meet you there. Your smile is contagious. And I love how pumped you are about blogging, vlogging, etc. and that I got to see it in real life. :D xo

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      Thank you! One of the things I learned at the conference was what I am passionate about which was great.

    Thanks so much for sharing! I hope I can make next year!

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      I think it’s a good idea to go to at least one conference. If you pick BlogHer just be prepared that it’s a little crazy.

    I had a preview of these photos. Thanks to Instagram :)
