HealthMinder Day Interviews: Making Time for Self-Care

We started our pre-conference interviews with our BlogHer '12 speakers earlier this week and thought it would be a great idea to also interview some of our HealthMinder Day speakers since this pre-conference event is new to our attendees! If you missed the announcement about HealthMinder Day and don't know what to expect, "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." I thought a good first question to ask some of our speakers would be: What's the #1 tip for self-care that you would pass on to those trying to make time for health and wellness?...more
I really agree with AV's approach. I need to get on it and do it.more

@MaisonValentino #BlogHer12

 There was a growing frenzy online, this past week, about the imminence of #BlogHer12. And an even more harried scramble to get sponsors for it. You see, blogging is not the most rewarding enterprise, financially speaking. Often, it's a hobby, with its author (usually a creative, prolific, but unknown writer), trudging along, day after day, post after post, waiting to be discovered and whisked off to the next Oprah (does she still do shows nowadays?) or Good Morning America show....more

Conference Corner: Speaker Introductions at the Beginning of Each Panel

If you’ve ever attended a BlogHer event, attended a session online through our Virtual Conference feature, or read through a session transcript in our Live Blog section, you may have asked yourself: Why don’t speakers introduce themselves more thoroughly? I want to know more about their background, their expertise, where they blog, and why they’re on this panel!Truth be told, they don’t give a bio because BlogHer asks them not to. ...more
Love this strategy. Makes total sense. more

In the Company of Writers

BlogHer Writers was a one-day conference for ... well, writers who blog. Two hundred of us gathered for a day of education and sharing, and if the enthusiastic conversations on Twitter are any indication, the other 199 enjoyed it as much as I did. All the elements of an awesome conference -- knowledgeable and articulate presenters, well-designed sessions and workshops, and relevant topics yielding many takeaways -- were in place. Best of all, this was a community of smart and savvy women (and a few good men) who also happened to be NICE PEOPLE....more
