IFB Conference Feb 2012 - Recap

The February 2012 IFB conference was the perfect way to kick off New York Fashion Week! This was my third time attending and my first as a speaker, moderating the "Media Goes Mobile" panel.

The audience was full of fresh faces and judging by the #IFBcon tweets, they had a great time and learned a lot from all of the speakers!

I hadn't really considered myself a "veteran" blogger - in fact, I still don't since I have a lot to learn and do! However, it was really fulfilling to be onstage sharing information and advice on social media and blogging.

Milk Studios was absolutely PACKED to the walls for each panel, so my pictures are mostly backstage. Enjoy!

I love it! Thanks so much for sharing the IBF info on the Seattle Bloggers group on FB -- it totally made my day! I caught the 1:30 session and got totally juiced to improve my blog. I was thrilled to hear Emily share how she just did an editorial calendar -- right on track with what I'm working on!

And I love love love your cape! What a great find.
