BlogHer in Second Life Registration is CLOSED! We're full! Now what??

BlogHer Original Post

You've downloaded Second Life. You've registered. You've *maybe* dressed your avatar.

Now what?

If you haven't already, you'll be receiving a 'group invitation' from ME, Queen Tureaud, to join "BlogHer in Second Life '08 REACH!" The notice will come to your avatar in Second Life. You need to join this group in order to be able to attend conference sessions and fun.

Once you are in the group, you'll receive notices and "teleports" come conference time on Friday morning. You click and POOF! you are magically transported to our CNN.com iReport conference center where you'll watch the KeyNotes live from San Francisco and mingle with your fellow Second Life attendees.

We'll have volunteers on hand to help you navigate if need be, and to help shuttle you back and forth to our exhibit and cocktail party area at AskPatty.com. And while you are there, make sure to head over to the BlogHer booth and get some t-shirts AND the most super-cool pin to wear. We can teach you how to edit the pin so when other attendees click on it, they are taken to YOUR blog!

New BlogHer in SL blog button for shirts

Avatar Osprey Therian made these awesome shirts and the pin, make sure to stop by her blog Second Life Art News.

If you log into Second Life and have trouble, avatars Gidge Uriza, Vint Falken, and Ana Herzog will be around, along with myself, to help you out.

If you haven't seen it yet, check out the full conference schedule including speakers and don't forget to add your name and link to THIS POST to participate in the Community Keynote.
