A Brief History of the CheeseburgHer Party

  1. Yvonne says:

    I love Our Party. I love Us. I love everyone who comes to Our Party. I expect this year to be just as fun, hilarious and amazing as it’s been every other year.

  2. Man. So sad I keep missing these things!
    In 2007 it was because I missed the memo. LOL!
    In 2008 it was because circumstances demanded I leave before days end on the second day. SOB.
    And I haven’t been able to return to BlogHer since. (insert very sad face here)
    But I hope you guys have another amazing time this year. It looks like the party to end all parties. 🙂

    Such fabulous memories – and each year it was excellent. Can’t wait to go again!

  4. Awesomesauce. I mean AwesomeKetchup. See you soon, Lindsay!

    This is by far one of my favorite BlogHer traditions. And you know why? I think because it started so completely organically, and you guys have added sponsors but managed to maintain the spirit of that first party (that I wasn’t at, but still, I can tell!)

      That’s what I love about it too. Even when it gets bigger, we’re still doing the same things, WITH A FULL BAR AND DANCE FLOOR. And you just can’t argue with that! 😉

  6. Redneck Mommy says:

    I just love y’all. My tribe. With or without the cheeseburgers, although I do like a good hat on my head. See you soon my friend.

  7. Gertie says:

    Man… every year I read about these parties and vow then and there to start a blog so I’d have a reason to go. Looks awesome!

      You don’t technically HAVE to have a blog… You could get a t-shirt that says ‘Commenting since 2006’ and people would FLOCK TO YOU. 😀

    Hoping to run into you this year for longer than an elevator ride. I mean, BlogHer ’10 elevator rides were the LONGEST ELEVATOR RIDES EVER, but still.

    Aw, man. I would love to go to Blogher!! I just switched gears with my blog and have big dreams about where it could ultimately go. Eat a cheeseburger for me!!

      It’s a cheesy saying, but I really believe that if you can dream it, you can do it! Good luck with your new direction!

  10. Jenna says:

    It would be so cool to come! Perhaps someday when I’m not pregnant 🙂


  11. Aw, sniff. Well when you put it that way…

  12. CheeseburgHer ’10 held some of my fondest BlogHer memories. CANNOT WAIT for this year!

  13. Suz says:

    I love that I now know the history & story behind it. Now I’m looking even more forward to ending my first BlogHer experience at the CheeseburgHER party!

    OMG this post makes me so excited. This is my first Blogher and I was thinking I would have a hard time meeting people & would have to work up courage to go to the parties. Um… no. This is something I cannot miss!

  22. […] You can read the whole hilarious history here, but the short version is that what started at BlogHer ’07 as a hotel room afterparty has morphed over the last five years into the official BlogHer closing party, sponsored by McDonalds and Sony Playstation and open to everyone who attends the BlogHer conference.

  23. Ok, so I’m reading this after having attended my first BlogHer conference – and my first CheeseburgHer party, which was definitely one of the best parts of the whole weekend.  I may or may not have teared up a little bit reading this post.  I may or may not be PMSing.  I love that the BlogHer/CheeseburgHer community is one in which I can admit these things.

       That is so awesome! I tear up a little THINKING about the party. This year in particular, the CheeseburgHer Party really seemed like the epitome of what BlogHer should be about- I literally danced with total strangers the whole night and didn’t feel the slightest bit self-conscious. To me, that means EVERYTHING!  🙂

    I`ll add this party to my cover etter when I`m not on a diet

  28. I love it every year but this year- 2012-was even more fun than the last two.  I don’t know why but it had the some of the same old school vibe that I first encountered in 2008.  Thanks for doing this ladies it made my weekend!

  29. […] actually unreasonable. It’s excuses.  It’s lethargy.  And even without being drunk at CheeseburgHer I can still get on you like a Capuchin monkey and yell drill instructor style about no excuses […]

  30. As if I weren’t already bummed I had to change my plans (well I didn’t change my plans.. the family did) now I see I’m missing this?!

  31. Christy Laverty says:

    I will be there this year! Looking forward to meeting as many people as I can!

  32. Crystal Hammond says:

    I’m such a softie! This story totally made me cry. I’ll be there for sure!
