Rewriting the New York Times Headline: Blog Use Wanes Among Teenagers

Here's the interesting thing: Blog use is indeed significantly down amongst teenagers. Half as many "blog" now versus in 2006. And those in the 18-33 cohort show about a 2% decline. Yet more of those who are 34+ are blogging, leading to an overall increase. Yes, despite the headline (which, let's acknowledge: The reporter probably didn't write) there has been about a 25% increase in number of "all adults online" who blog. ...more

And thanks for the reminder. When my kids get up into the double digits, I'd like to think ...more

Give the Gift of BlogHer. 20% Off Blogger Tix to BlogHer '11 Through 12/31!

We've gotten caught up in the Black Friday/Cyber Monday spirit here at BlogHer, and we've seen some really fun tweets along the (totally paraphrased) lines of "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth -- and a ticket to BlogHer!"   That inspiration has led to our first-ever holiday discount for bloggers who want to attend BlogHer. ...more

Look forward to meeting you in San Diego :)

BlogHer Food '10 Virtual Conference Pass: Don't Miss a Thing!!

Today we are excited to announce a new feature of BlogHer Conferences: The BlogHer Virtual Conference Pass. Each year, each conference we hold sells out ... sometimes months in advance ... and that leaves a lot of potential attendees holding awesome Pity Parties. Or planning their own local meet-ups. But what better activity for a Pity Party (even a Pity Party of one!) than to actually watch the conference happening live, and join in a live chat with others doing the same? ...more

Yes, it turns out we only are missing the first break-out sessions. So if you buy the current ...more

New Feature: BlogHer Meet-ups Everywhere and Anytime

BlogHers like to meet up. We've been having pre-conference meet-ups in various cities for several years now. This year we noticed people were scheduling post-conference meet-ups. Now we're even planning during-conferene "Pity Party" meet-ups for those who can't attend conferences in person. Oh, and not to mention holiday meet-ups, summer meet-ups, Valentine's Day meet-ups. Turns out we don't need much of an excuse to replicate the experience (and the joy) of meeting face-to-face on a smaller scale. Everywhere. And anytime....more

Thanks for the explanation, Elisa. I was wondering about that, too.

Announcing the BlogHer ’11 Call for Ideas!

UPDATE as of 12/22/10: Due to the volume and quality of submissions, we are delaying release of Phase 1 of BlogHer '11 programming until after the holidays, mid-January. This will also delay the launch of the Room of Your Own submission process, since Room of Your Own submissions are designed to fill holes in the Phase 1 programming. We know this extra time will help our seventh annual conference have the best, most original and creative, programming ever! Thank you for your patience. -Elisa Announcing the BlogHer ’11 Call for Ideas!  ...more

Is the one you should wait for at this point. We're done taking new submissions for the Phase 1 ...more
