The BlogHer Business '08 podcasts are here! Thanks to our friends at ListenShare, we are now able to offer you complete podcasts of BlogHer Business '08 sessions. Click here to access the podcasts. The podcasts are also available in iTunes (you will need to have iTunes on your computer in order for this link to work):
UPDATED: Intuit brought two handy hand-outs with them to their Ask the Experts segment, and they have graciously agreed to share them with the entire BlogHer community now that the conference is over. While these are focused on small business owners, I actually think many bloggers qualify as small business owners.
We're very pleased to announce that this year, every session at BlogHer Business was recorded on video! So whether you attended and want a refresher or weren't able to be there in person, we have a great excuse for you to sit back, plug in your headphones, and explain to your boss that you're actually working.
This spring, BlogHer partnered with Compass Partners to do a sweeping social media benchmark study of more than 6,000 women. We surveyed 1,250 female Internet users via a nationally representative panel, and 5,000 visitors to BlogHer's network (BlogHer.com our syndicate of 1,500 blogs). The results? Judge for yourself: Did you know that: * 36.2 million women actively participate in the blogsophere every week (15.1 publishing, 21.1 reading and commenting)? (Page 3 of report below)
We told you about Ask the Experts Room #1 the other day, and now I'm going to describe the activities going on in Ask the Experts Room #2: The Windows Experience Lounge.
With BlogHer Business only six weeks away, we thought it was high time to provide your blog bling. What's that? You're not registered yet? You can sign up right here. (And if you're not quite sure if you're going to go, you can always check out the agenda, speakers, and other attendees who'll be there first.) But for those of you who are planning to be there, why not say it loud and proud:
The BlogHer Business agenda is almost fully fleshed out and waiting for you to check it and see! Of course there's no rest for the wicked, and I can tell you that any day now I'm about to announce the BlogHer '08 tracks and issue our call for ideas for that, but I don't want to let the amazing women lined up to speak at BlogHer Business get lost in the shuffle.
When the first BlogHer conference was launched in 2005 we introduced something called a BlogHership. And we still list BlogHerships as one of the ways everyone can participate in BlogHer events. But what is it, and how do you get one? The inquiries are already pouring in, so I thought it was well past time for me to spell it out.
It gives me great pride and pleasure to announce that our new BlogHer Conferences section of the site is now open for business. Not only that, but registration is also open for both BlogHer Business this April 3/4 in New York and BlogHer '08 this July 18-20 in San Francisco. I'd like to particularly thank BlogHer's Community Manager Denise Tanton, BlogHer's Events & Marketing Manager Kristy Sammis, and BlogHer's Marketing Programs Coordinator Joy Johnson for working their butts off to make all of the above happen.
This April BlogHer returns to New York City to put on our second annual BlogHer Business Conference, and we are looking for ideas. Ideas for panel topics for one of our two break-out tracks. Ideas for great case studies. Ideas for must-have speakers.
Today we are proud to announce our entire 2008 schedule of events, centered around one unifying theme: Reach! BlogHer in 2008 will include a second annual BlogHer Business, the fourth annual BlogHer Conference and the introduction of a brand new BlogHer event: The BlogHer Reach Out Tour. The BlogHer Reach Out Tour will stop at 6 cities on the East Coast and across the South. Yup, we're growing from 2 events in 2007 to 8 events in 2008!
We reviewed the survey, compiled the poll results, read your blog posts and comments, and we are ready to unveil our BlogHer in 2008 plans...this coming Thursday, September 27th at 9AM Pacific time. And we'd like to do it live and "in person" on a community conference call. We'll take about 15 minutes to outline our entire schedule for 2008, and then we'll have time for Q&A as well. As soon as the call is over we'll push the info live in a blog post and press release too, so don't worry if you can't make it. You won't have to wait too long for the info.
