My First #BlogHer Party – Thanks @MomCentral
Pampers is MomStart’s official Blogher Sponsor!
After a day of traveling and getting settled into the NYC rush (which I should make a special point to say I LOVE), I hit the streets of New York to meet (not just Tweet) some of the ladies that make MomCentral so amazing. I had the chance to meet some great people, and learn about some cool things that 3M, Scotch, and Zulily have going on.
One of my favorite things about the night? I was actually able to meet @MomCentralChat. I do the #MomChat almost every Tuesday (from @Momicles2010). I do it because… well just because it is fun! It’s an hour long Twitter Chat that takes place on Tuesdays and it is just plain out fun. Eilieen (Ms. MomChat herself) knows how much I love those Tuesday time outs, but it was wonderful to actually meet her in real life! It’s so nice to take the online social world we work in and make real connections with it.
I was also able to feed my office supply addiction/obsession. Did you know Scotch makes a fancy, fun, colorful tape? It comes in SO many different bright, vibrant colors and gives me SO many ideas! There is a colored tape that is basically a color version of “Magic Tape” and decorative packaging tape. With back to school season here, I think this would make a GREAT gift for your favorite teacher… or for your child before they head back to school. The ways you could decorate a binder or folder with this stuff? The possibilities are endless! In fact, there is even a Pinterest contest to show just how cool your ideas for this tape are!
There were so many exciting things going on, I learned so much MORE about the blogging industry, and met some amazing people. Again, it was another one of those evenings that leaves me feeling so lucky to be doing what I’m doing.
