I'm on Martha Stewart Blog Show Blogging Live

by - 1/20/2010 07:55:00 AM

Last week twitter was buzzing with people wanting to know who else was attending the Martha Stewart show about blogging. Everyone was so excited that Martha wanted to talk "blogging" which is such a huge part of all our lives.



Being part of the audience filled me with just a little bit of fear. First, over the years I slacked off from being creative and now my crafty supplies and tools collect dust in boxes.


Second, as a black women where did I fit at the Martha show? Would I be one of three brown people sitting in a sea of non browns. I feared that Martha would KNOW! She's see the non craftiness about me and call me out.


I hoped my friends would be so excited about their own participation that they'd be cool if I faded out. Wasn't happening. My friends were determined to share this experience collectively...as a blogging community.




After waiting online, we did a quick run through security, coat check and then into the waiting rooms. The whole area was decorated to be bright and colorful. Naturally being bloggers we started taking photos of the area and ourselves and sharing it on twitter, facebook, etc. LOL.


Then we went about meeting and greeting the other bloggers. I was over joyed to see other brown bloggers behind the sites of SunKissed Mommy, Mama Law, StyleMom and others blogger hues such as Dancing Hotdogs and New York Chica.





From the waiting area we headed into the studio and to our seats. The set was HUGE with areas for guest table talk, cooking, craft demo's and more.





The team behind the scenes buzzed around checking our laptops was connected to the internet and had no techie issues. Then the hype man came out to explain the rules while making us laugh. Then it was show time!

As Martha came on set the sounds of thousands of laptop keys started clicking away....along with blackberries and other smart phones. The Show featured

  • Whatever Girls Jennifer Koppelman-Hutt and Alexis Stewart, who said she has a real job and no time for blogging. I thought that was the funniest thing to say on a show about blogging with an audience filled of bloggers. You're brave Alexis!
  • Pim Techamuanvivit aka Chez Pim who showed Martha how to made Pad Thai. I loved her segment and had the chance to meet her after the show. She's SO nice and approachable. Wonder if I can get her to give me an interview for my community blog *thinking*
  • Jeff Blumenkrantz, from My Year of Cooking Fabulously, who learned how to frosted a cake and shared how he learned cooking from Martha's recipes. From that segment I learned to cut two slices of cake and remove the 2nd for a perfect wedge
  • Andrew Ritchie from Martha Moments, did a demo on making yarn cards with Martha





After the show Martha did a Q&A session with the audience. I enjoyed hearing the answers to questions on how to make buttermilk biscuits, which NYC restaurant to chose for a birthday bash and most important...where did she get her shoes!

I was impressed with Martha's real life personality that showed through during the breaks. Yes, she a professional at being "Martha" but she's does everything in style and with some humor. Who knew!



So am I glad my friends "encouraged" me to be part of the blogshow. Absolutely!

I'm also glad that the show rekindled my excitement about being creative. I'm hoping to dust off my jewelry blog and get back on that groove.

But most of all I enjoyed doing what I do best...blogging, tweeting and chatting away with a community of amazing women doing amazing things. Thanks to Martha Stewart and the team behind the show for giving us bloggers our special day in the spotlight.

  1. What a great review. I love Martha Stewart products. Sometimes a bit pricey, but still love her crafting supplies.

    I do love crafty stuff. You looked like you had a great time.

    I can't believe Alexis Stewart said that about blogging even if she was joking. That makes me not like her.

    Thanks for sharing.
