If you ask me what the best video game ever created it, I will without hesistation tell you that TETЯIS: The Soviet Mind Game by Tengen. You can't get Tengen Tetris anymore; in fact, you couldn't a month or so after it came out. It was really a brilliant video game, even for 8 bit, and it's a big reason why I love working as Conference Programming Manager for BlogHer today.
So much of what we do on the Programming Team has to do with fitting square boxes into right angled spaces and making everything flow together seamlessly....more
A month from today, BlogHer Food '12 will be winding down in Seattle. Can you believe it? We hardly can! There's just so much to do between now and then -- which includes registering for this amazing conference if you haven't yet done so! We're still working to bring you some interesting, bite-sized interviews from our amazing speakers every week, and this week I stepped outside of the food box and asked a thought-provoking question:

The answers are as unique as the bloggers, which is always a treat....more

Last month's BlogHer Entrepreneurs '12 Conference is one that's near and dear to my heart, and to Lisa and Jory's. We know that we could never have sustained building BlogHer over these last seven years without mentorship, without expanding and deepening our networks, and without taking advantage of the many resources and support systems out there for small businesses. We hope this conference helps other entrepreneurs find resources and support....more
Back in February, Elisa introduced HealthMinder Day, a brand-new, pre-conference add-on opportunity for BlogHer '12 attendees:
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.
The day is a stand-alone, so you purchase a ticket separately from your BlogHer '12 registration (here).
Health and wellness -- including care of self and care of others -- are matters of huge interest to BlogHer community members....more
Last week we introduced you to our first round of Sponsors for BlogHer '12, and this week we have more amazing sponsors to tell you about. Our sponsors heavily subsidize the costs of the conferences making it possible for us to offer such low registration rates for our attendees year after year. Check out some of our sponsors for the BlogHer '12 Conference in New York on August 2-4....more
Happy Friday and happy Star Wars day! (I will confess that May the Fourth be with you did not make any sense to me until I said it out loud -- giggle.)
Now onto things that do make sense to me...
BlogHer Food '12 in Seattle is quickly approaching and we've got so much planned for you and your time with us....more
