BlogHer Food Interviews: Telling Community Stories & History Through Food

This week's BlogHer Food '13 interview brings us three fantastic ladies who know a thing or two about food and storytelling. Our panelists from the Telling Community Story and History Through Food session are sure to inspire you to pass your bits of culture and history through your food writing as well. I asked them: Would you please share a quick story about how you are passing down your culture through your food blog? (You may link to a previous post with a quick blurb about why you love it so.)...more

Scared to Submit Your Work for VOTY? Don't Be!

BlogHer Food Interviews: The Business Case for Video

It's time to get back into the BlogHer Food '13 speaker interviews. This week I am talking with the panelists from our session, The Business Case for Video.

So i asked these smart ladies: Can you give our attendees one reason -- either little known or MUST KNOW NOW -- why they should be incorporating video into their food blogs?...more
I'm obsessed with doing video and learned how to edit them too. Nothing tells the story like a ...more

What I Learned at BlogHer Entrepreneurs: I Am an Entrepreneur!

We've shared some great posts about our attendee's experiences at our BlogHer Entrepreneurs '13 conference. We wanted to take some time and share this new post by Sarah Kimmel at Tech 4 Mommies to inspire our readers. Maybe you have a great idea, but you're trying to talk yourself out of believing that you're an entrepreneur. Maybe, like Sarah thought, you feel comfortable with health insurance and a steady paycheck. But maybe, just maybe, you're lying to yourself. Read on for more inspiration. ...more

BlogHer Entrepreneurs '13: What You Wrote After

Today I'm bringing you their thoughts and reactions as they still have a wealth of information to share with those who couldn't attend or those who might have been in a different session....more
