Baby Girl’s Ponies Go To BlogHer ’10: Meeting People

Starsong and Pinkie Pie go to BlogHer '10

One of the brands supporting the 2010 BlogHer Conferences is Hasbro’s My Little Pony. When BabyGirl saw that in my conference materials and on my Twitter feed she asked if I would take some of her My Little Pony ponies with me to meet friends. Being the Best. Mom. Ever., of course I said yes. But only 2!

There was some negotiation as to how many really should come to New York, but I was firm with two. So Pinky Pie and Star Song (who I kept calling Sweetie Belle) attended BlogHer with me. On Friday, they visited the Expo hall and learned about many of the brands before heading upstairs to meet their friends at the My Little Pony booth. They had a great time, but the highlight of Friday was the BlogHer Gala, where both Pinkie Pie and Star Song got dressed up and put on their beautiful outfits.

Here are some of the great people Star Song and Pinky Pie met at BlogHer ’10.

This is Holly and Rustin from The Blog Frog. They like ponies, but not as much as they like frogs. If you don’t know about The Blog Frog, you should check them out. And if you don’t follow Holly and Rustin, you should and tell them I sent you!

This is the famous Susan Getgood! She is super smart and I met her at Blissdom for a hot second but got to meet her again in NYC and she was extraordinarily gracious to talk marketing with The Ponies and bring them up to speed on the newest trends.

This is Julie and Tricia from Mabel’s Labels. They’re from Canada! The Ponies had never met anyone from Canada before so they were thrilled to meet Julie and Tricia who told them all about how to label their things so the other ponies don’t keep taking them.

This is The Bloggess! And she loves The Ponies! Did you read that? The Bloggess loves The Ponies! She was all kinds of fabulosity on Saturday evening, typing away on a manual pink typewriter whatever the energy from your aura would communicate to her. And, you know what? The Ponies loved her too!

This is Laid Off Dad, and he has a real name but that’s not really important. He’s an artist and The Ponies enjoyed watching him make me a LOD original. In French! Well, it wasn’t IN FRENCH but he wrote on the LOD Original in French. And because The Ponies are super smart, they know French too. Oh, and, yes, they let men come to BlogHer.

This is my BFA, Bloggy Friend Alli or Blissdom Friend Ally or even Best Friend Alli. Well, I just made that up. I don’t think she’s my best friend. OK, maybe she is. She definitely is my Blissdom friend and Bloggy Friend. Her name is Alli Worthington and she is The Awesome! Anyway, Alli lives in a house full of boys so she doesn’t get much pony time. But she, too, loves The Ponies. And get this, Alli said The Ponies could come to Blissdom! Did you hear that Hasbro and @MyLittlePony? Star Song and Pinkie Pie were invited to Blissdom by none other than Alli Worthington herself! And if you think Alli is being all crazy inviting The Ponies to Blissdom, she can do that because she is one of the founders.

There are more people BabyGirl’s Ponies met and plenty more pictures. But that’s for another day. This is just the beginning of The Adventure of BabyGirl’s Ponies!

The Ponies are taking suggestions as to whom they should put on their list to meet and places they should go.  Do you have any suggestions?

  1. Hi Sara,

    Can I say that I am just a wee bit jealous (just a teeny-tiny bit) of the ponies? I am so thankful that they were able to go. I can’t wait to hear all about it.


  2. Hi Sara!
    It was so great to meet you, Pinkie Pie and Star Song! I hope BabyGirl enjoyed hearing about and seeing their adventures – I love how this turned out.
    Hope to see you again soon.
    Happy labeling!
