Conference Corner: BlogHer Call for Ideas Ending Soon!

BlogHer Original Post

That time of year is upon us… No, I’m not referencing the holiday season! We at BlogHer are anticipating and celebrating the annual Call for Ideas for two of our most classic events: BlogHer Food, and BlogHer’s annual conference!

And if you can believe it, the BlogHer Food ’12 Call for Ideas closes TOMORROW (December 21st), and the BlogHer ’12 Call for Ideas closes in just TWO WEEKS (Thursday, January 5th). Have you told us yet what topics you want to discuss at either conference? Have you recommended bloggers you’d like to hear speak? Do you want to speak at a conference? (If so, read this post on How to Become a Speaker!)
