BlogHer Conference '07 - A World Of Difference

Just a quick note to let you all know I'll be a panelist at BlogHer's Chicago conference this July. I'll be joining Alanna, Kalyn, Nupur, Shuna and Susan at the The Art of Foodblogging Session. Together, we'll try to answer questions and give you glimpses into our collective, food-spattered psyches. I'll do my best to not make too much of a fool of myself (I've fallen off a stage before, I can do it again).

The conference also has a session focussed on food photography. Béa, Jan and Lara will offer tips and ideas about creating images as mouth-watering as the food you cook.

From what I read of last year's conference it was very good, and 2007 is shaping up to be just as good, if not better. For those of you who don't know, it's a two-day, five-track blogging conference that explores various aspects of online journalling, including life, business, techythingies and other bits. If you can make it, I hope you'll stop by and say "hi"--and yes, the boys can come too :)

I'm allowing myself a day to wander the Windy City--any foodish suggestions for me? And yes, I've pondered Alinea, but I think it won't be a possibility this time ;)

cheers!
