In May of 2005, a scant two months before the first BlogHer Conference, a new site called the Huffington Post was born. That was back when trying to build a business via blogging was uncharted territory. One year later, Arianna Huffington was a featured keynote speaker at BlogHer '06, our second annual event.

At this year's BlogHer conference, we are partnering with The White House Project to encourage women to learn about running for office. BlogHer's commitment to women's issues, women's rights, and women in politics goes beyond the blog, as evidenced by Jill Miller Zimon, one of BlogHer's contributing editors, now elected to City Council in Ohio, who will be speaking in New York. Arianna Huffington, another woman who knows a bit about blogging and what it takes to run for office, spoke last week in San Francisco at two events, giving her advice on what women need to shatter the glass ceiling and change our world.
