the agenda

October 8, 2010

I love those of you who are looking for structure in this non-event. Love you. Hard.

So here is the agenda. Subject to change, especially if things go wrong. We will post updates on this page as needed. I expect some additional presentations to be added.

All times are US Eastern.

Ustream links will be posted on Twitter and on the #BHF10PP site.

Prizes will be announced throughout the two days. Once you win a prize, you are ineligible to win any of the other prizes, except for four prizes: SEO Consulting from VinoLuci, WordPress website development work from VinoLuci, Swag Bag from BlogHerFood gala night event, and (of course) the ticket to BlogHer Food 2011.

Please, you all don’t need a facilitator. BHF10PP is a community-driven effort, and you don’t need the events below to interact, play, sob, snark, and laugh. Create your own conversations, events, fake speaker sessions…and we will all play along. Be silly, absurd. And be thankful we have each other, even if we really are all alone.

Friday, 8 October

  • 9-12 – Be irritated that you’re not at BlogHer Food. Maybe drink.

  • 5:00-8:00 –  Your favorite post. We each have a post that we’ve written that we’re really proud of, that shows us at out best. So while we’re at our worst at the PP, let’s remember and share with each other what we can be when not sobbing on the kitchen floor. (Tweet and post to the BHF10PP site on a special section.)

From → the agenda

  1. Sounds good to me… Yeah… no I mean… Booo oh… I am going to cry right now.. why I am not on the plane right now getting strip searched?

  2. I’ve got goosebumps thinking about how awesome this is!

  3. This whole (non)event is so cool. I’m almost happy I’m not at Blogher Food. I said ALMOST!

  4. Love this agenda – should be fun! I have a discussion post idea I may toss in there, but for now: The Saddest Swag: DIY BHF10PP Swag bags!

  5. Thank you! Thank you! I love all this organization and structure. I can get off the meds now and stop stop stressing out about where to be at what time!

  6. Looks like a fun filled 2 days for us poor souls not at BHF10! You are awesome!! Wish I was going to be around more during the 2 days to play….I mean be terribly sad and grumpy!

  7. This is it, folks! The BIG Moment!
    I’m at a loss for words. Almost.

  8. Watch the event streaming live at:
    Can’t wait!

  9. I’m adding in Friday, 3 PM EST, when we cry about not moving on in Project Food Blog.

  10. Haha, feelings of regret – that’s the most pathetic part. 🙂

  11. Please sign me up! Does one need pretend hotel reservations? Pretend ID on a lanyard? How does one join in the tweet party? Not particularly tweet savvy. Or organized. Hence forgetting to buy a Blogher ticket AGAIN until they were sold out. And I live relatively close to SF. So sad. Still, I would probably never get out of Golden Boys Pizza anyway if I went to The City.

  12. I hope I am not too sick when I am live on Ustream tomororw from all the bad eating and drinking

  13. We are so in. First order of business: Eating a lot of jam. Right out of the jar. No spoon.
