Back from Blogher 2009 – Tune into Sisterhood, the Blog Radio and listen to my Blogher reflections on July 28th @ 8pm


Happy Monday!

I am back from Blogher 2009 ( I had a grand time with the Blogher ladies and sponsors in Chicago. I also had so much fun using my Vado Creative Cam and filming webisodes of Ananda Leeke TV (  I was able to create a groovy series on Black women bloggers who attended the conference.  Look for the webisodes later this week.  I also filmed some fun episodes featuring me sharing my insights and chatting with Sam Smith, one of the coolest guys at Blogher.  I did something unexpected and participated in two video projects. One was for Tropicana Juice.  I gave my healthy tip on eating oatmeal with raisins and honey for breakfast.  My webisode will be posted on Blogher and Tropicana’s web sites.  I also gave my two cents on what advertisers should consider when marketing to women in a documentary filmed by Holly Buchanon.     

The Windy City weather was fabulous.  I had time to meet my cousin Ellen and sistalove Mari for dinner at two Indian and Nepalese restaurants.  I also went to the National Museum of Mexican Art.  I will post videos from Ananda Leeke TV featuring my museum visit later this week.
