Day 6 of Gwen Bell's Best of 2009 Blog Challenge:"Was there a conference or workshop you attended that was especially beneficial? Where was it? What did you learn?" BlogHer was the one conference I attended this year but even had it not been, I think it would be tough to top in terms of impact. Despite some odd mommy blogger shenanigans (not BlogHer's fault), the event was remarkable in that it created the space for me to identify with a niche, think about this whole blogger and sponsorship business, reflect on future directions, and connect with friends in real life.
