Is BlogHer coming to your town in 2008?
I just got off of a conference call with BlogHer founders Elisa Camahort and Lisa Stone, who were announcing the exciting 2008 schedule of eight BlogHer events under the theme umbrella “Reach!”
And of course, men are most welcome to attend any of these….
** BlogHer Business will be held in New York April 3-4 2008 at the Affinia Manhattan hotel. As Elisa reminds us, last year’s BlogHer Business included “the women behind the corporate blogging efforts at Google, Yahoo!, Cisco and Wells Fargo, the women who run such media outlets as the Washington Post.com/Newsweek Interactive, iVillage and Redbook Magazine, and women who are technical experts at everything from blogging software applications to traffic building, monitoring and measurement.”
** The main BlogHer conference will be at the Westin St. Francis on Union Square in downtown San Francisco July 18-21 2008. I spoke at BlogHer 07 in Chicago this past summer, and I can tell you that this is a superbly-run event. Don’t miss it! Elisa says, “We plan to continue to be the blogging conference that features every facet of blogging, from the intimately personal to the intensely political to the purely professional.”
** To reach out to East Coast and Southern bloggers, there will be a two-week BlogHer Reach Out Bus Tour in October 2008, traveling to a number of cities for one-day blogging events. The tour will start in Boston MA, then move to Washington DC, Greensboro NC, Nashville TN, Atlanta GA and finish in New Orleans LA. If you’re a blogger in or around any of those cities, consider either attending or speaking. If you know any great local bloggers, contact Elisa and let her know about them. She says, “we couldn’t pass up the chance to prove that great blogging is happening all over, and about every topic under the sun.”
For the full story, here is today’s BlogHer 2008 post on the BlogHer site.
I’ve found there’s nothing more tonic than meeting fellow bloggers in person to exchange ideas and business cards….I’m just trying to figure out how to pack in a trip to both San Francisco and New Orleans.
See you there!
