No worries. I only have about three more posts about BlogHer and New York planned and then I’ll (maybe) stop talking about it. And right now, I’m not even really going to talk. Much. I think.
I’m not well traveled, so going to BlogHer this year was as much about going to New York City for me as it was going to the conference itself. I only had a few days and in those few days, I saw a lot of things, like the clouds, a rainy New York skyline from the bridge into Manhattan, and some really, really tall buildings, one of which was Radio City Music Hall.
On Thursday, I saw MORE things. Like Central Park (not pictured), some buildings whose names I don’t exactly remember, and Riverside Park/the Hudson River.
I also saw Times Square. A lot. In both day and night. But Times Square at night is so brightly lit it might as well be day time. There are also throngs and throngs of people. And costumed characters dancing in the streets. And people. It’s full of crazy energy and I love it.
I ate a lot of food, too. Pizza. Hot dogs from carts. Italian. Magnolia Bakery cupcakes.
And Emma, my tiny partner in crime, was fantastic through it all. Truly. So fantastic. See?
I’m still trying to wrap my head around what, specifically, BlogHer itself means to me, so that post is (probably) forthcoming. But New York City? The constant coming and going. The honking of horns. The drone of cars and people. That city is alive. And I felt alive in it.
