Let’s be honest: Attending a blogging conference can be exhilarating, overwhelming, exciting… and maybe a little scary. That’s why BlogHer has created this Conference Corner series: to help demystify our events, to help you get the most out of them, and to help set your heart at rest before you arrive. As we anticipate our 2012 conference year, it’s important to staff at BlogHer that your questions are answered before each event. And whether you’re a newbie or a veteran, you can help us with that!...more

One of the questions I’m asked most frequently (as a part of the conference programming team) is this: “I want to speak at BlogHer. How can I make that happen?”I have a canned answer, which is: “The best way to become a speaker at BlogHer Events is to apply during our Call for Ideas; you can submit yourself as a speaker on a certain topic, or you can submit a full session proposal (including other panelists!), or anywhere in between.”...more
It's hard to believe I'm about to say "welcome to the holiday season," but yes it is true. Stores are doing it, television is doing it and now we too are doing it -- we're diving head first into the holiday season!
