The Conference The Community Built: Announcing the BlogHer ’09 Room of Your Own Sessions

BlogHer Original Post

When BlogHer published our ’09 agenda late last year, we left two full tracks of break-out sessions unplanned. Each year BlogHer opens a portion of its sessions to community programming, called Room of Your Own sessions (sometimes abbreviated ROYOs). Room of Your Own sessions are a way for registered attendees to hold conversations around topics they think we missed in our programmed panels. They are a way to prove how much expertise and passion all attendees bring to the table when they come to BlogHer.

We asked you to submit proposals for those panels you’d love to attend, but weren’t already part of our pre-programmed agenda. And WOW, did you ever blow us away! You submitted a bevy of interesting topics you are passionate about, topics that spanned every possible blogging topic, and we watched as dozens and dozens of submissions accumulated in our community polling system and then as hundreds and hundreds of community members voted on those sessions!

We reviewed every entry, and added Room of Your Own panels to the BlogHer ’09 agenda based on community interest and panel topic diversity, featuring new and fresh themes. You’ve helped us create the most full, exciting summer schedule we’ve ever had. So without further ado, we’re excited to announce all TWELVE of this summer’s Room of Your Own sessions:

BlogHer community members are full of great ideas, which is just one reason we love this community so much. And with all of these new agenda additions, the only problem is choosing which sessions to attend!
