RECAP: Design Bloggers Conference

Well, friends I’m back from LA!

The first annual Design Bloggers Conference was a success!  And SOLD OUT!

Knowledgeable speakers shared loads of useful information (I took tons of notes).  I met some amazing fellow bloggers turned new-found friends and mix and mingled with some of the best designers and bloggers in the country!  I left thinking a lot about the direction I want to take my business and my blog, which has me very excited to see where I’ll be this time next year.  Sky’s the limit!

Bring on the pics!

View from my hotel room. I could see the “Hollywood” sign!

Agenda for the day

Grace Bonney from Design*Sponge

Lori Dennis, Interior Designer (You’ll be seeing more of her on HGTV’s “The Real Designing Women”)

The Garden Party, Celebrating TradHome!

Joseph Aldrich and Deirdra Govan @ Garden Party. Deirdra was selected to design the set on stage at next years conference!

Deirdra Govan, Irene Lovett and Me (my new blogging buddies)

Irene Lovett and Myisha James (blogging buddies) Find them at and

 Lastly, I’ll leave you with these little tid bits. I found these interesting…

  • 53% of the approx 200 attendees have been blogging for less than a year ( and here I was thinking I would feel out of place!)
  • We (attendees) reach approx 1.6 million readers. (WOW!)
  • There are more design bloggers in California than anywhere else.  (Who knew?!)

Do you plan to attend next year?

Did you follow the dialog on twitter??

    Loved your recap. And for someone who claims to need a new camera, your photos are pretty good. Have I told you yet, how good it was to meet you? I can’t believe that was last week!
