We’re still hard here in Berkeley, Canon Digital Rebel

Are any of you attending the Blogher Conference in San Jose in July?

I will be on a panel on Saturday, July 29th called “Is the Next Martha Stewart a Blogger?” It will be a conversation led by the fabulous Maggie Mason (aka. Mighty Girl) with myself, Gayla Trail, Pim Techamuanvivit (Chez Pim), and Marnie MacLean. I would love to meet some of you!

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    Hey there girlie….I guess you’re thinking about sort of putting the sabbatical thing on hold, possibly? Good for us!! One thing I do kind of think is that when you take the pressure off of yourself to post something every couple of days, then maybe it gets a little easier to actually do the posting, does that sound sort of right? I do think at this point, you’ve got a whole other journey that you’re letting us know about….

  2. beastmomma

    I wish I were attending. Instead, I will be counting the days until I leave my job from my desk.

  3. kristen

    i wish i could come see you. how cool girl! how’d you get involved in that?

  4. surcie

    Wow, that sounds great. And I’m sure that hearing you would be wonderfully inspiring, Andrea. I hope you have a great time!

  5. heather

    I wish, but I have no time (nor energy, really) this year. Hopefully next year.

    I would love to go to blogher next month.
    And I would love for someone to send me a ticket and invite me —
    and I would love to meet you…
    these things don’t seem to be happening.

  7. Anali

    I would love to go, but I don’t think it will be happening. I hope that maybe there will be one on the East Coast one day.

  8. rani Shah

    i just checked out that conference-looks pretty cool! i would like to go, but two small kids keep me from it-you must give us all the details!

  9. Mia

    Oh I would love to be there. Is anyone making podcasts that we can watch on-line? Wishing I was there. Have fun!

    What a wonderful pannel to be on. Such talented ladies all coming together. I am sure it will be a wonderful experience. Curiously, I’ll be closer than ever as I’ll be in Seattle for the weekend (normally living on the East Cost of Canada, ie. a world away) however I’ll be watching a dear friend getting wed. at La Conner in Washington.
    Have a great time and don’t forget we’ll be wanting full reporting of the highlights!

  11. Chookooloonks

    Hey, Andrea —
    I’ll be there, also speaking on a panel: “Identity…and Obligation.” Looking forward to meeting you!

  12. Veronica TM

  13. Shelley Noble

    Hi Andrea,
    I am trying to help spread the word about the Dewey Donation System, which is a massive book drive to get books to the libraries destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. An amazing idea and beautifully executed. Please at least check out the website at…I know you will be impressed!
    Take care!

    I am counting down the days. I’m thrilled you’ll be there. That you are presenting is just the icing on the cake! Delicious.
