BlogHer '10 Speaker Spotlight, June 8, 2010 -- How to Start, Engage in and Moderate Civil Political Debate

You can't please everybody all the time, especially in open forums like blogs. It's why some folks choose to close comments, and why others have shut down their blogs entirely. But for many, their blogs are platforms for civil discussion among a diverse group of readers. BlogHer '10 is featuring a session focused on exactly that, which we've called: "How to Start, Engage in and Moderate Civil Debate." Here's the description: ...more

Yes. I'm trying to handle communication like this by encouraging discussion, rather than ...more

BlogHer '10 Speaker Spotlight, June 1, 2010 -- Good Blog Design: The Role of Layout In an Online Medium

If content is queen, does that mean that the platform you use to share content is her palace? And aren't palaces supposed to be both beautiful and functional? We like to think so, which is why we're talking about the role of copy layout and design in the BlogHer '10 writing lab. We're calling this session "Good Blog Design: The Role of Layout in an Online Medium." Now, this isn't a Geek Lab session, so we're not going to turn you into a web designer. But you will learn the concepts and language that matter when deciding how your site should look, feel and work. ...more

Such a great topic to focus on!! I'm very excited to see what I can learn to incorporate into ...more

BlogHer '10 Speaker Spotlight -- May 25, 2010: Bringing Sex Out of the Closet

Four years ago, at BlogHer ’06, we talked about sex and blogging in a Room of Your Own. We figure it’s time to resurrect the topic and discuss how sex (or the lack thereof) can affect your health and happiness: physically, emotionally, psychologically.

BlogHer '10 Speaker Spotlight -- May 18, 2010: Change Agents

At BlogHer's first conference in 2005, a group of MommyBloggers convened in a packed Room of Your Own session. At the end of the day, blogger Alice Bradley (aka finslippy) coalesced the tribe by declaring, "MommyBlogging is a radical act!" to cheers. Five years later, "MommyBlogging" is unquestionably acknowledged by the mainstream, and with that mainstream attention comes, occasionally, controversy, but also opportunity. ...more

Yes I have brought up issues on my site because I believe that attitude and sense of self ...more
