There was laughter. There were cookies. And yes, there was wine.
Saturday, November 3rd marked the fourth Bloggin’ Mama Social, hosted by the Orange Wall Collective, which is a collaboration between LiveMom, Free Fun in Austin and MomCom Life. Thanks to MetroMoms, MedSpring Urgent Care, Plug & Play and ZACH Theatre, who sponsored the event. Food was provided by Blue Baker.
After ample time for socializing, Omar Gallaga, the Statesman’s Tech culture writer Skyped in his writing partner, Tracy O’Connor, so they could tell us about their latest project (it’s gonna be good, people!) Some of the blogging mamas walked away with some sweet door prizes and everyone left with an amazing bag o’ swag.
In attendance were mamas who have been blogging for years and others who have just begun. As we expected, blogs were about anything under the sun: from personal blogs set up to share memories and photos with family to food blogs to humor blogs to small biz blogs and everything in between. Before we knew it, the Social was over. We missed those of you weren’t able to make it, but were excited to have a chance to meet people in person and check out some new (and new-to-us) blogs!
Here are some of the bloggin’ mamas in attendance (please comment if we missed your blog’s name and we’ll add it to our list):

In Thoreau’s words, her mission is to “suck out all the marrow of life”, or in her son’s words, to cultivate in him a love of “advenchers”.[/author_info] [/author]
