I met bloggers from all over and had a great time exchanging business cards and twitter handles and sharing bits of blogger talk that you just don’t get to do in every day life (you can – people just glaze over though). At Blogher, everyone was constantly looking at their phones, taking pictures of their food or vlogging from the Expo Hall, and it was expected and encouraged. It’s good to find your tribe.

A long buried secret is discovered and a family’s story is forever changed. . . . → Read More: New Book to Read: Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian
