The Buzz Before BlogHer Entrepreneurs '12

Updated: BlogHer Entrepreneurs ‘12 kicks off today in Santa Clara, CA for two days of learning, mentoring, networking and connecting. The buzz on Twitter and blogs is picking up as people are already traveling and getting excited for the event. I’ve been following along, a bit bummed I can’t attend with all of these amazing women, and thought I’d share some of that fun and inspiring buzz with you. As you'll see via these tweets, the official Twitter hashtag for the conference is #blogherent12. Be sure to follow along today and Friday, as we know our conference attendees are great at sharing pertinent quotes, amazing photos and fun snippets of conversation throughout their experience. We'll have day-in-tweet recaps, liveblogs starting this evening, and an overall post-conference buzz post, so keep checking back over the next days! ...more

(INTERVIEW) A Successful Year for Entrepreneur Cynthia Liu

With BlogHer Entrepreneurs '12 right around the corner, I thought it would be a great idea to revisit an entrepreneur we spoke with almost one year ago. Cynthia Liu started off wanting to help people understand education cuts in California, but saw a greater need. She went on to win the HTC Innovator Award at BlogHer '11 and has had a whirlwind year of success. What better than a success story right before our conference?...more
Cynthia is doing amazing things and she is the voice of education for me in social media - there ...more
