Announcing BlogHer Food '09: September 26 in San Francisco, CA
Today we are thrilled to announce BlogHer Food '09, our second focused BlogHer event, after BlogHer Business. BlogHer Food will take place this September 26th at the beautiful St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco, CA and will bring FoodBloggers from every walk of life together...to meet, to eat, to learn, to eat, to share best practices, to eat, to blog...and to eat!
Our food blogging community has been clamoring for more foodie content since at least 2007, and we are thrilled to finally be able to launch this event to bring that content and much much more.
Some of you may know that I am not only not a foodie, but BlogHer's notorious vegan too. Never fear, we are assembling a crack advisory committee of FoodBloggers to make sure the content is as diverse and broad as the food blogging community itself, led by our core FoodBloggers here on BlogHer.com, Elise Bauer, Kalyn Denny, Alanna Kellogg and Sean Timberlake.
Here are the details we know now:
