Once upon a time, in cities far, far away, two women decided to accidentally created a tradition at the annual BlogHer conference for women who — you guessed it — blog.
These two women threw a party. It involved lots of McDonald’s cheeseburgers, booze and much silliness. They dubbed it the “CheeseburgHer Party.” Each year, attendance grew. Women donned paper hats and danced. Security guards showed up in hotel rooms. Many of these guards weren’t allowed to leave until donning a sack-hat and posing with lots of women.
The Cheeseburgher craze is now a Blogher tradition. And this year, some very kind souls decided to sponsor multiple parties across the nation for those of us who couldn’t attend the Blogher conference.
Little Rock was lucky enough to be one of those cities. So, on Saturday night, a few dozen Arkansas women bloggers gathered on the 18th floor of the 300 Tower on Third Street for their very own, very first Cheeseburgher party.
Hilary of Rock the Shops and I decided we couldn’t pass up such a gathering. So we talked dresses and shoes and wondered whether anyone would talk to us.
“I’m nervous,” Hilary confided.
“Me too,” I said. “How about a cocktail before we head up?”
We had so much fun with this lively group of writers who live very much out loud. Tomorrow, I’ll be listing the many women I met. For now, you’ll just have to trust me when I say they were an incredible and dead-sexy lot. We were so happy to be included!
I’ll offer more details tomorrow, as well as some links. For now I’ll close with a big thank-you to Kyran of Notes to Self for putting this shindig together.
