Hi everyone, happy Friday the 13th! I do not have any fears of Friday the 13th except the movie, do you? But I will say, cheers to Friday :-)

The Wrap: Your Conference Wrap Up - - May 13, 2016

You might have noticed that we didn't publish The Wrap last week because Erin, Kathy and I were in Los Angeles making a fun video announcing the closing party venue for #BlogHer16 - The Conga Room - woo hoo!!!! If you haven't watched our silliness, take a peek

And since we are talking about #BlogHer16, we have some expert advice about why you should attend a #BlogHer conference and how to prepare for your onsite experience.

The first post is from Denise Tanton on how to prepare (online) for a conference. You will find useful pre-conference tips and then when you are onsite, voila! It's easy breezy. Check out her post here.

Rita Arens shares her practical and fun advice and reminds us that face to face interaction is still important in an online world. I think my favorite part is "don't forget to giggle" - anytime laughter is involved I'm in.

Let's move on to #BlogHerFood16...

I know it seems like #BlogHerFood16 is 'so far away,' but it's really closer than you think. If you haven't made the decision to jump into our foodie event, here is something fun to help you decide.

We are looking forward to seeing y'all in Austin!

On to my favorite part of this post...introducing another member of the Events Team. This week please meet Liz Thompson.

The Wrap: Your Conference Wrap Up - - May 13, 2016

Liz has been blogging since 2003 and has been part of the BlogHer Network ever since. She is a mother of 4 and lives in New Jersey (yes, on purpose - as she would say) and has a fabulous husband who prefers to stay behind the scenes of her social media world. Liz has been working on the events team since 2014 and is the Sponsor Experience Manager, which means she helps keep our sponsors happy - that's important. My favorite thing about Liz is that if you make her laugh, she snorts! Yep, snorts. So please please please, when you meet her onsite, get a in a good laugh, you won't regret it!

Until next time...

Lori Luna

general manager, events
