We got what we went for: connections. Our intention for attending this year's conference in San Jose was to broaden our network of bloggers beyond the SoCal territory and that we did. We literally met women from all over the country, and the world. Special shout out to Elizabeth, writer of the must-read blog, Lady in the Living Room, who we drank, gossiped, and laughed with while attending various panels, keynotes, and sponsored lunches. We stayed at the Fairmont (loved it), and ate at The Grill in the Alley (amazing steak and fab wine list), Billy Berk's (a bartender that knows his shit), and Bijan Bakery (don't order the cheese plate unless you like shredded cheese with crackers). It was great to reconnect to so many familiar blog voices and to reconfirm that since we started this blog in 2010, we're doing a pretty good job of it.
