If you were wondering why I haven't blogged about Portland Quilt Market yet, it's because I was barely there and have very few pictures to show for it (forgot the camera!). I arrived a few days before the show and left for my sons' graduation when the show started. It was a jam packed time of booth set-up, schoolhouse presentation, sales meeting, sample spree and our first ever bloggers' get together. This was Caroline Devoy of jcaroline creatives' brainchild and I was happy to co-conspire.
The concept of getting to connect "faces" with the bloggers in our industry was great fun. Lucky for me everyone else turned up with camera in hand (but of course, that's what bloggers do) and took plenty of pictures.
But the real reason I'm writing about this is an article I just read in the Wall Street Journal, Social Networking in the Digital Age It brings up an interesting point; blogging doesn't replace human interaction it actually encourages it. I'll be interested to hear what all of you kindred spirits out there in blog land think of it.
Then check out the list of speakers at The D Conference; all things digital
I'd love to be one of the lucky 600 people in the audience!
p.s. I know I glossed over quilt market, don't get the wrong idea. I'll be covering lot's of cool stuff from the show in upcoming posts!
