Visiting The Martha Stewart Show

Since I raved enough about Martha Stewart yesterday, I thought I’d let some pictures tell the story of my morning in the studio audience full of bloggers at The Martha Stewart Show today.

 

Mom and I were on line bright and early and behaved like tourists...

Well,Β I won’t let the pictures tell the WHOLE story

We were on line by 8AM waiting on line with bloggers from Baltimore, Boston and Philadelphia and after an enthusiastic welcome from Joey Kola, the “warm-up guy” (apparently we were his best looking audience ever. I am sure he doesn’t just say that to everybody), we headed into the (FREEZING COLD) studio where we filed into our seats and waited for Martha.

Dream Kitchen...

Throughout the show, we heard from a few great bloggers – even Martha talked about the blog that she maintains with her sister and manager. Martha even gives a full recap of the blogging show on her latest post.

The whole experience was fabulous, but my favorite part of being at the blogging show was experiencing the same giddy, butterflies-in-my-stomach-but-in-a-good-way feeling that I had the entire time I was at BlogHer this summer.

Before I plunge into full-fledged geekery, let me first say that when I started blogging back in May, it was because I needed to read blogs for my job.

At first, it was like homework.

Fun homework, but the word ‘work’ nonetheless.

As my Google reader grew and grew, I started becoming attached to some of the blogs I would read.

In the mornings, I’d check my reader as soon as I would check my email to see who had posted since I’d last logged on, and what the Mommy Bloggers were up to that day.

Some of the blogs I followed read to me like novels – they were stories that reminded me of my childhood and stories that reminded me how much excitement and joy lies ahead of me.

Some of my favorite blogs are parenting blogs, partly because I can relate to their wit and cynicism as a twenty-something who doesn’t know HOW someone can possibly be woken up four times throughout the night by a wailing newborn only to turn around and head to the office at the same time I do every morning.

Regardless of what our interests are or what topics we cover on our blogs, blogs create a community unlike any other. It’s not a community based on geography, age or demographics. It’s a community that we create for ourselves, where there are very few rules, and I think it’s pretty cool that Martha Stewart gets that.
