Yvonne invited me to attend my first BlogHer conference which was in Chicago back in 2008 I believe it was. Yvonne introduced me to all these great women that she mentioned in this post. We also got to meet Elizabeth Edwards that year who was an amazing woman. I am deeply grateful to Yvonne for this experience and introducing me to the blogoshpere. I'm still blogging after all these year! Thanks again Yvonne.
