I'll be attending BlogHer '08 (it's my first time--so excited!), and I'm hoping to find a running buddy for my long run. I'm currently training for a marathon, and I'll be running nine miles (pace will be around 9:00-minute to 9:30-minute miles depending on hills) on Saturday morning. I'll leave the hotel around 6:00 am. Let me know if you're interested!
Are you an artist, crafter, writer, DIY-er (or many of the above) looking to sell your BlogHerrific wares? Come sign up for the BlogHer '08 Swap Meet! Interested in purchasing some homemade goodies? Please stop by.
If you're not sure what the Swap Meet is all about, read Jen's fabulous Call for Artists here. Then get the details below...
When: Saturday, July 19
Almost all of the rooms in the BlogHer room block at the Westin St. Francis are sold out. But now, thanks to our friends at Kimpton, BlogHer attendees can still get special rates at hotels within just a few blocks of the Conference.
Calling all photo enthusiasts!
Grab your cameras and put on your walking shoes, it’s time for BlogHer’s first ever PhotoWalk, brought to you by the Shutter Sisters, and taking place immediately following the BlogHer '08 Photography session on Saturday afternoon, July 19th, from 3:15-4:30PM. If interested, just meet outside the meeting room where the Photography session concludes at 3PM on Saturday.
We have some very important information regarding making hotel reservations for the BlogHer '08 Conference in San Francisco!
As of this morning, we are at about 80% capacity on our room block. This means that there ARE still rooms available (really!), but our room block will sell out.
Thanks to your overwhelming response to our early registration options, it's looking like BlogHer '08 will be a sold-out event!
Of course, we want everyone who's interested to be able to attend, so we're encouraging all BlogHers to register early. To help with this, we are extending Earlybird Registration prices to March 31. (You can check out our basic price breakdowns here.)
San Francisco: ready or not, here we come!
The BlogHer community has been submitting ideas for BlogHer '08 session since pretty much the day after BlogHer '07 ended. And you can rest assured that we have been saving all of the ideas, suggestion, speaker recommendations and "shameless plugs." But if you were waiting to hear just a little more about what we have on tap for BlogHer '08 before making your suggestions, then this post will be welcome.
I'm announcing the official "Call for Ideas" for BlogHer '08 this July 18-20 in San Francisco, CA.
We reviewed the survey, compiled the poll results, read your blog posts and comments, and we are ready to unveil our BlogHer in 2008 plans...this coming Thursday, September 27th at 9AM Pacific time.
And we'd like to do it live and "in person" on a community conference call. We'll take about 15 minutes to outline our entire schedule for 2008, and then we'll have time for Q&A as well. As soon as the call is over we'll push the info live in a blog post and press release too, so don't worry if you can't make it. You won't have to wait too long for the info.
