Listen to 'Who SheKnows,' a New SheKnows Media Podcast!

Back in the day when blogging (and BlogHer) were relatively new, podcasting was already a thing. But then podcasting seemed to fade away a bit. As other social platforms rose and blogs stayed strong, podcasts were a little bit overlooked. ...more

Yes, You Can Be Organized at a Conference. Here's How.

I hate packing, but even more I hate unpacking. I hate the zillions of pieces of paper that I'm pretty sure are important. I hate losing receipts. I hate worrying my car will break down on the way home from the airport because my phone is totally dead. Do you hate these things? Read on, because after ten BlogHer conferences (plus, well, almost twenty years of business travel), I have a plan. And I'm going to share!...more

How to Instagram Your Way Through #BlogHer16

The benefits of attending a BlogHer conference are many, but one of the very best is this: People "get" your social media obsession. Phones are in hand (or in faces) more often than not, and it's not unusual to nod understandingly when someone says, "Keep talking; I just need to post this picture before I forget my caption." ...more

Get Ready for a Conference: Order Your Business Cards

It is Friday, which means that we are hours away from the weekend. So I'm going to throw something on your to-do list.

For the next few weekends, I'm going to suggest one small thing that you can complete some time between Friday and Sunday evening to get ready for #BlogHer16. By the time August rolls around, the only thing you'll have left to do is throw some cute shoes in the suitcase. ...more
