But that was not all! We had a grand announcement -- BlogHer Food '13 in Austin!!!
Let's talk about BlogHer Food '13 in Austin, shall we? First off, what a fabulous destination and we know we have a whole bunch of folks out there who are ready to jump in and join us in the Live Music Capitol of the World! But let's not forget the critically acclaimed chefs, 5-star restaurants and then the food trucks -- they have it all.
If you missed any or all of BlogHer Food '12 you can visit the VirtualCon and see photos and read live blogs; audio files are coming soon!
Now if you think all things Food are exciting then you haven't heard anything yet! We are thrilled to announce Katie Couric as our lunch time keynote on Saturday, August 4. Yes, that's right, Katie Couric is coming to BlogHer and will be interviewed by our own Lisa Stone. Katie is launching a new daytime show this fall, but you don't have to wait until then to get the scoop on this award winning journalist!
Now, in order to see Katie on Saturday you must be a registered attendee, so don't delay and get your conference pass here. And while you are getting everything lined up, you might as well book your hotel room at the Sheraton NY.
First we have HealthMinder Day. HealthMinder Day is designed to be a day of inspiration, education, and connection. Specifically, it is a full, multi-track adjunct day happening Thursday, August 2nd, before BlogHer '12. The day will focus on expert information and looking at the latest tools, services, sources, and products for taking care of yourself and your loved ones. And for sharing with your online communities. HealthMinder Day requires a separate registration from the annual event starting on Friday. Register today and add on another day of great learning!
Then we have Pathfinder Day. Taking place on Thursday, August 2nd, Pathfinder Day was created to to help answer an ongoing, consistent question that we, as bloggers, often face: Where do I go from here? And to help answer that question and many others, Polly has announced our pathfinders who will guide you through their experiences and shed light on "what's next". Pathfinder Day requires a separate registration from the annual event starting on Friday. Register today and add on another day of great learning!
And then we have reminders:
- Childcare is available -- so bring your little one's with you and make it a family outing
- Parties start on Thursday night -- check out the schedule and get your fun on!
- Speaking of fun -- have you blinged out your blog? Grab your code here!
- Do you have a sponsor helping you pay your way to the conference? Make sure to read the guidelines for sponsored bloggers.
I think that's it for now friends!
Until next time...
