BlogHer Original Post
Before I get started on our weekly conference update I would like to say that we here at BlogHer are wishing all of our friends on the east coast a speedy recovery from Hurricane Sandy; our thoughts are with all of you.
On to the weekly update...
I know last week I teased a couple of announcements but given the weeks' developments on the east coast we only made the one announcement: BlogHer Food '13 Call for Volunteers is OPEN! If you have a taste for food but the budget says otherwise, this is the way to be part of the fun. Check out my post and apply to be a volunteer!
In other BlogHer Food '13 news, we closed the Call for Ideas on October 31 and want to thank everyone who submitted! We now have an amazing pool of ideas to read and submit to our committee and we'll be announcing the basic agenda on December 10, so keep an eye out for that announcement.
Now, I was going to list out some of our upcoming deadlines but Shannon beat me to it with her Conference Corner post. But! I am going to grab the bullet points and cheat ;-)
- The basic agenda for the all new BlogHer PRO event should be live next week!
- Early bird pricing for BlogHer '13 ends on Nov 7th. (Save $200 -- click here!)
- We'll announce the basic agenda for BlogHer Food '13 on December 10th.
- BlogHer PRO comes to the Fairmont San Francisco on Dec 13th. (Click here to learn more, and register!)
(But her post is pretty funny so you should go take a peek.)
We continue to have a bit of Thursday shoe fun but this time we bumped it up a day in honor of Halloween. Check out the BlogHer loves Halloween shoes.
Again, to our east coast friends, stay safe and we're thinking of you and wish for a speedy recovery. And if the rest of you are looking for a way to help out, here are two organizations who are fully engaged in the disaster recovery efforts. We know there are many choices so please know these two are posted for your immediate convenience only.
Until next time...
