      Look forward to meeting you at BlogHer, Alisa! That’s what I loved about the conference last year — connecting with people I only knew online.

  1. says

    Is the Chicago event on the 4th or the 2nd? Above, you say it’s the 4th (Monday), but in the information you linked to, the date is indicated as the 2nd (Saturday). Thank you for any clarification!

  2. Vivian says

    Too bad I can’t attend any of these ;-(, just a bit too far away… But congrats on all the action you’re getting from the book, yay!

  3. says

    Wow Dianne,
    You are busy! Sure wish I lived out West so I could take your cookbook writing course…
    Any chance you will be at Foodbuzz in November? It’s kind of a longshot but I am thinking about going,

    • diannejacob says

      I won’t be because I am not a Foodbuzz publisher and too cheap to pay for the conference. Will have to meet you some other way, Winnie!
