BlogHer Conference Update -- December 17, 2010

BlogHer Original Post

It's Friday and even a little wet weather here in California won't dampen the fun things we have going on.

There are only 14 days on the calendar before the first-ever 20% discount for BlogHer '11 conference tickets expire! Now is the time to give someone you love {you} the gift of BlogHer and save -- the discount ends on December 31, 2010 -- register today!

If you haven't heard, or registered, for our new event, BlogHer|bet, you still have time. In March 2011, we will be hosting our first-ever event for women who have a big idea that involves technology, the Internet or social media. With our partners Cisco and Microsoft, we are bringing you:

  • One-on-one mentoring (all 100 attendees get an hour)
  • Peer-to-peer networking
  • Panel discussions on business, entrepreurism and technology. Sample
    topics include raising venture capital, choosing co-founders, leading
    product development…whether or not you’re a developer, and technology
    trends that are now driving successful design, distribution and
    promotion of virtually every technology or media idea
  • How-to showcase of successful pitches from women who have participated in programs with organizations like Astia and Women 2.0, among others

Take a moment to bet on yourself and register today.

Finally, I would like to share with you the results of our holiday book drive in partnership with Bookrenter...250 books were donated to KIPP between the New York and San Francisco holiday meet up attendees! Thank you for helping kids in need!

I think that will wrap up this week. Watch for more announcements next week and a year-end wrap up -- enjoy your weekend!
