Update: I can no longer attend BlogHer and am looking to transfer my full conference pass to someone else (for a discount). Please contact me if you are interested.
Last year I wanted to attend BlogHer in Chicago, however since we were still pretty much a single income household at that time (and my passport had expired) it just wasn’t in the cards so I settled for simply being listed on their site. Good new though, this year the conference is taking place a little closer to home on the West Coast.
What: “BlogHer’s annual conference is like no other — it is the thrilling diversity of the blogosphere come to life! Featuring technical labs, educational workshops, intense discussion sessions, relevant sponsors, speakers from every corner of the blogosphere, established and new, and plenty of opportunities to network and socialize.” [BlogHer Conference]
When: July 18-20, 2008 (starting with a first-timers conference on day one, the full conference on day two, and a more loosely scheduled unconference on day three)
Where: San Francisco, California
Highlights this year include a session with Heather Armstrong of Dooce, “Living the Truman Show”, who also has a book that is being released this spring. This is the 4th annual BlogHer and they now also have a business specific event, happening in New York over the next week.
I’ve been designated as a volunteer (with a bloghership), so on top of my live blogs I’ll also be capturing audio at the sessions, perhaps some interviews and some great soundseeing. I’m looking forward to networking, chatting, and blogging alongside so many great female bloggers from across the continent.
Register now for the conference to get in on the early bird pricing (which ends tonight!). You can also pick which days and events you’d like to attend, which are broken up in the fee schedule. Also, if any Vancouver companies would like to sponsor my trip I’d be happy to include lots of link love in my blog posts, contact me for more details.
