Broad Summit 2009

Hello! I'm back from Broad Summit. Feeling lucky I was a part of it.
I've been mentally debating between one-big-brain-dump-about-the-weekend-post and and a collection of shorter posts over the next week or so and I've decided to go with the collection. So expect to hear bits and pieces — about the attendees, the agenda and the sponsors of Broad Summit — over the next little while.

Starting with this: the retreat was very thoughtfully put together. Every detail attended to. For example, each night when we'd head back to our rooms, attendees would find a little gift on their pillows. The second night it was the hand-colored, signed print featured above. Created by Eric Rewitzer of 3 Fish Studios. Isn't it lovely?

My sincerest thanks to Maggie Mason, Helen Jane Hearn, Aubrey Sabala and Laura Mayes for putting it together.

If you're impatient/curious to know more about the weekend right. this. minute., I've got photos on my Flickr page.

how do you get invited to these events? Can anyone attend? Is there an event cost? I know that you have attended several blog events throughout the years I have been reading your blog and this is the first time I have asked. I hope you will answer. Thanks!

Hi Kim. Thanks for the question. I do attend several events throughout the year and each has different policies. For many conferences (like BlogHer of Mom2Summit) anyone is welcome to buy a registration pass and attend. For other events, it's invitation only. And some events are sort-of press junkets — but adapted for Bloggers. They're invite only and all expenses paid and attendees are introduced to new products they might want to share with their readers.
