Beyond Your Blog Podcast 004: Rita Arens - Deputy Editor, BlogHer

Originally Published on Beyond Your Blog

BlogHer is one of those sites that so many bloggers have benefitted from, and visit on a daily basis.  I hear lots of questions from bloggers about how they can get involved and get the most out of BlogHer, so today we are focusing on posting, being featured, and being syndicated on BlogHer.  What are the differences and how can you make all three happen for your writing?

I had the pleasure of interviewing Deputy Editor at BlogHer, Rita Arens, and got all the answers to my (and your) most burning BlogHer questions answered!

Listen to my podcast interview with Rita, and learn more about how BlogHer can (and should) be a major part of your blogging strategy!
