Conference Corner: Dates You Need to Know

This morning I got up, made a cup of coffee, sat down at my desk, opened twitter, saw everyone talking about NaBloPoMo, decided it was too early for all that tweeting, opened my blog instead, saw a BlogHer ad saying that Early Bird pricing for BlogHer '13 is about to end, and my head exploded.

The “Remote” Thursday Shoe Shot

This Thursday’s shoe shot has presented some challenges; part of the Events team is on vacation, some of us are travelling for business, and the rest are holding down the fort at BlogHer headquarters. Yup, we're separated by three time zones, but we refuse to let silly things like geography get in our way!

Since I’m working from BlogHer’s NY office this week, I’ve asked our digital team to play along....more
Yes! Halloween week we will do this for sure! @Jane Collinsmore
