Women bloggers and the BlogHer Conference
By Charlene Li
I'm at the pre-event meeting for BlogHer and my head is already buzzing -- I'm looking forward to the dinner tonight and a great day networking with other women bloggers as well as learning a lot from my fellow bloggers. My first impression -- this is going to a be a really, really fun event, as it involves a lot of both personal as well as professional bloggers. Many of the people here are blogging because they love what they do -- not because they want to make a lot of money (OK, they're here too!) So I'm looking forward to meeting and bonding with the (mostly) women who will be here.
When this conference was first proposed a few months ago, I issued a challenge for readers of this blog to name at least five women bloggers -- and many rose to the task! I've added the BlogHer Blogroll (on the left -- scroll down a bit) so that you can explore for yourself all of the fantastic, diverse voices that are out there. I'll post my impressions of some of the most interesting blogs that I come across during the conference -- and would love to hear if you've discovered some interesting sites as well.
So if you're going to be at BlogHer, let's try to meet up! And if you're not, I hope you'll take some time and look at some of these great blogs.
