Last weekend I spent 3 continuous days at BlogHer, a conference for all bloggers everywhere, with a focus on women's voices. From 8 am until around 6 pm there were continuous panels and discussions. It was intense. To say the least.
10 am UPDATE: BlogHer in the NY Times today.
On the first day I sat in on one of the best discussions* I was privy to hearing. Afterwards a few people came up to me in the hallway to ask if they could interview me about a concept I had spoken to in the discussion. The concept was about redefining success so that one does not feel like a failure at every turn when attempting to set and achieve goals, in whatever field or life path one is on. *Susan Mernit is my new hero.
There should be 3 videos of my interview but I'm only seeing 2. I think the last one is best, and the most fun, because I'm talking about Heat, the Bill Buford book.
Take a look, if you have a dash of time. Video 1 6 minutes, Video "3" 4 minutes. Video 1 gets cut off and there's a lot of background noise. Just so you don't think I'm sending you something perfect... and, you know, you don't have to look. I'm sure you have something better to do with your ears and time.
