It was pretty neat being in the front row. In one of the photos I stuck my boot forward to show you just how close I was to Martha. I enjoyed the excitement of the show, meeting other bloggers and friends, but I couldn’t help but feel as though us bloggers were being used. The blogging show didn’t really deal too much with blogging. For MS to call it a “Blogging Show”, “all about blogging”, you’d expect all of the topics to pertain to blogging, right? Rather, MS just wanted us to all blog about the show and promote it from all platforms. Everyone was a little disappointed that we did not receive any good swag, we all hoped for a neat electronic gadget. I guess no sponsors stepped up. The cookbook is nice, but not what most people expected!
We all had pad thai on the brain after that cooking segment, so my bloggy friends Never Trust a Woman with Three Names, Queen Mother Blog, Thrifty Green Frugal Mom and I all went to Spice – a Thai restaurant in Chelsea. I took a photo of my Pad Thai :)
Enjoy the photos! I wrote captions, but I think something went awry. Too tired to fix it now. Also, I rarely post photos of myself – be kind! :)
