I’m alive! Got back from my whirlwind Boston/NY/London trip Thursday night, just in time for today’s BlogHerFood conference! I’m here now and about to head down to a Scharffen Berger demo. Yay, local chocolate! I’m having a blast hanging with my friend Laura, learning a lot aboout blogging in general, and meeting up with loads of interesting food bloggers. I even got to catch up with Tina who I met when I was in Boston last week!
I’m very lucky that the conference happens to be in my city, because after all the traveling I’ve done lately, I’m doing my best to avoid flying for the rest of the year. Quickly (so I can get down to the aforementioned chocolate demo), here’s how I’m “greening” BlogHerFood ’09 for myself:
*Taking the bus to and from the conference
*Going paperless – taking notes on my computer (though we all know I have a ton of scratch paper!)
*Bringing my own silverware wrapped in a dish towel, which I’ll use instead of a paper napkin
*Bringing my own reusable bags and Sigg water bottle
*Wearing my favorite thrift store Citizen jeans and Made in the USA wrap (ok, maybe those don’t really count! ;))
There have been a few non-green things that have bugged me a little bit (tuna and shrimp at lunch, extra-thick paper napkins in the bathrooms, etc) but overall I’m having a great experience.
Are you here? If not, is there anything you’d like to know about the conference?
