BlogHer '10 Speaker Spotlight, June 22, 2010 -- This Year, You’re In! Fashion Blogging is Serious Business

Despite the economy, those who are blogging about fashion and beauty mean business. They’ve carefully dug out their niche, detailing for you trends up top and down below – from shoes to flirty dresses to the latest hair and makeup. Some are even rewarded for it with brand partnerships, loyal followings and Fashion Week invites from major players in the industry. These bloggers have taken it all in stride, without losing their focus on the thing they’re most passionate about, fashion, and we’re applauding them for it. ...more

Really looking forward to this session at BlogHer. The panel represents such a great range of ...more

BlogHer '10 Speaker Spotlight, June 15, 2010 -- Your Online Legacy: How to Control Your Digital Footprint

There’s not really a polite way to ask this, so we’ll just be blunt: Do you know what will happen to your blog, or your social networking accounts, when you die? Will they be shut down? Will family or friends carry them on, in your spirit? Will they be archived so your voice may live on forever? Do you have a plan? In the BlogHer ’10 Geek Lab, we’ll be discussing all of this and more in a session we’re calling: “Your Online Legacy: How to Control Your Digital Footprint.” Here’s the description: ...more

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
