Wow. The Kidlit Bloggers Conference on Saturday was awesome! A lot of super fun bloggers and writers, a lot of great information, and plenty of new blogs to read. The food wasn’t even too bad. Hurray for conference planners who like vegetarians and don’t feel like it’s okay if we starve, knock off, and quit bothering them (not that I’m insinuating anything about other conference planners out there, but I have been known to bribe nuns to sneak me a pizza at a conference. To keep my strength up).
I didn’t realize how many kidlit bloggers there were out there or how strong of a community it was. Great discovery. I also had no idea there were so many Portland Kidlit people — I knew a few Portlanders there, but it was great to see there were more than I’d ever imagined.
