Its crazy to think that I started TheBigGirlBlog as a hobby to keep me sane while I auditioned for plays in NYC… or that I wrote it anonymously for years. Although I feel like I know so many of you via the comments section, twitter, facebook and emails it wasn’t till this moment at the BlogHer 2012 fashion show that anyone knew what I looked like:
While some of my friends are playing Candy Crush and sites like Http:/GalaBingo.com, who knew that my online hobby could bring me into such an amazing space with amazing women doing amazing things. I am so thankful to the BlogHer community for embracing me and encouraging me to do more, so when they asked if I would speak on two panels for BlogHer 2013 in Chicago, I said “Absolutely!”
You can also come as I discuss TheBigGirlBlog and finding my space in the dating/fashion world as a Plus Size Princess while moderating the “Rocking Your Otherness” panel on Friday at 2:30pm.
Also, if you live in Chicago or just happen to be around next week, I’ll be having drinks with some NYC bloggers in the evening… come by and say hello! To keep up with where we’ll be, click here.
