What I was most looking forward to by attending Alt was to connect with local bloggers. There were plenty of opportunities and I was not disappointed. The cards above represent all the conversations that were had. It was amazing to walk into a space where everyone was equally friendly and willing to share information with each other.
In the spirit of this community there's some link love below which could contain your newest blog addiction or resource. I've organized these a bit Bay Area centric so local peeps might be able to more easily find some of the services this group offers. In the mix are photographers, designers, writers, artists, and more.

Lastly a little note about sponsorship. I have never been to any event with as much swag and sponsor interaction as this one. I had an epiphany at the very end when Gabrielle, organizer of Alt, was thanking the sponsors. The sponsors are exactly why I was there. Why I paid a very reasonable $260ish for two evenings of food and parties and a full day of valuable information. I was lucky that I live locally and didn't have the other expenses out of town guests burdened. I AM THANKFUL. I GET IT. And now some link love for the sponsors.

Acura, thanks for a fabulous desert party at The Fairmont where I almost fell into an infinite loop and meta meta'd while printing and instagraming.

And last (literally) but not least I fell down the rabbit hole at Pinterest.
