nate and a bazillion design bloggers

Today, a bunch of very lucky design bloggers are headed to NYC. They've been invited to the Nate Berkus Show, as an awesome thank you for their blogging and tweeting and generally spreading the word this summer about Nate's upcoming show.

The blog world went crazy for Nate, and now he's showing them some love in return. Of course, I would love to have gone, not just for Nate, an incredibly talented designer and all-around charming guy, but for the opportunity to meet so many of the entertaining, stylish bloggers I've been following. Speaking of following, this all came about through the power of following, on blogs and mainly on Twitter. So, follow someone you like.

You can follow me on Facebook and Twitter. Follow Nate on FB and Twitter too. Get tickets to Nate's show here. And check out my blog reads in the sidebar to find more great blogs to follow. One of them, me{longings}, has a photo cheat sheet of all the bloggers who are attending Nate's show taping today. So fun to put names to faces and see who's going.

So much can come of this social media thing—not just knowledge, but new relationships that become very real through a virtual world. So though I'm not heading to New York today (because I'm heading to Italy in two days!) I wanted to be there in spirit and what better way than to blog about it!

What a great show that will be! Lots of great bloggers. Have a wonderful time in Italy. Have some wine and gelato for me. My mom and sister just got back from Lucca.

Wow - I think that's great. I would love to be among all those fabulous bloggers and actually meet them and chat.

Also, the Rue launch party - I wonder how many went along to that too whilst in NYC. And how do you get on their mailing lists to actually be invited? Anyone know?

Good question, Valerie. I have no idea how the Rue thing came together or how to get on their list. I know the Nate Show offered tickets to everyone who participated in what bloggers were calling Nate Day earlier this summer. And there's also an HGTV party/event after the Nate show that they decided to host for the bloggers when they found out about the Nate blogger audience. Very cool! I would love to be at these events too and meet everyone in person. Next year, my goal is to get more into the loop so I can!

Ahhh Italy! What fun! Can't wait to hear about it; I spent a summer in Florence in college and am dying to go back... I wish I could have made it to Nate's show today, but only given a week's notice wasn't enough for me with a flight and work. Boo. :( I still love Nate though! :)

Hi Casey,

I feel the same and am going to make more of an effort to be in the design and blogger loop. Hopefully we can finally meet too?

Have a fantastic time in Italy.

Val, I would love to! If you are ever out east, or if I am ever out west...
