Ohhhhhhh, BlogHers. The time is nigh. Today we are announcing our BlogHer '10 Call for Volunteers!

We’re looking for a few good women (hey men: we like you, too!) who are interested in working at BlogHer ’10. In exchange, we’ll give you free admission to the conference, which includes all keynotes, break-out sessions, breakfasts, lunches and cocktail parties ($300 value).

All BlogHerships are designed to cover registration only, and do not include travel expenses.

BlogHer is staffing three positions:

Registration Desk Helpers: This job encompasses more than being a friendly face – Registration Desk Helpers have the difficult task of coordinating check-in for more than 1,500 attendees, providing badges, tote bags and maps, answering myriad questions and being a general know-it-all (or at least knowing where to find the answers). The estimated time commitment is three (3) hours per day.

LiveBloggers: Can you type quickly? Do you have a knack for remaining unbiased? In this position, volunteers will create an official record of assigned sessions for both attendees and non-attendees to reference. You must transcribe the session as it plays out, not summarize or editorialize the discussion between panelists and attendees. LiveBloggers must use their own wi-fi enabled laptops. The estimated time commitment is two sessions (2.5 hours) per day.

Mic Wranglers: We won't require long legs or ballerina-esque moves, but Mic Wranglers will need to maneuver through rooms to deliver the microphone to attendees who want to make their voices heard. This task is especially important because it also affects audio recordings, so you'll need to be quick as a flash. Or at least quick-ish. The estimated time commitment is two sessions (2.5 hours) per day.

If you’re interested, we recommend applying today for one of the very few, highly coveted BlogHerships. But be warned: The application process closes February 15th. Good luck!
