The deadline for carpool sign-ups is quickly approaching! Anyone interested in carpooling to BlogHer DC must email Erin Groh by 12noon PST/3pm EST tomorrow, Friday, October 3rd! Don't miss out on this great opportunity!
If you've been waiting to reserve your hotel room (or to register!) for BlogHer BOSTON or BlogHer DC, time is almost up! The last day to reserve your room in Boston is this Friday; DC is TODAY, Monday, September 22.
Today I am disappointed to announce that BlogHer's Reach Out Tour scheduled for next month will now include Boston and DC only. We are canceling Nashville, Greensboro, Atlanta and New Orleans.
We decided to do the Tour one year ago, based on community polling about where BlogHer ’08, the annual conference, should be. Our ambitious plan was to do six full BlogHer Conferences, complete with multiple tracks of programming, full meals, fabulous cocktail parties and schwag.
If you're anything like me, you cannot believe it's going to be September already...which means that autumn really is right around the corner, with BlogHer's Reach Out Tour right along with it.
(And also if you're anything like me, you also haven't begun packing for your vacation even though your plane leaves tomorrow morning at dawn. Ahem.)
So before you head into the long Labor Day weekend for your final(ish) summer hurrahs, don't forget to make plans for BlogHer's Tour. We kick off in Boston in only 45 days!
Just a quick reminder that you can still find all our conference information for BlogHer '08 (and BlogHer Business 08, and BlogHer '07...) by clicking on the Conferences tab and selecting "Past Conferences" in the left column.

Sure, the first order of business is was actually registering. And then it'd be awesome if you'd like to add yourself it was cool that so many of you added yourselves to our ever-growing roster of attendees.

We've worked up our Official "I'm Going!" and "I'm Speaking" buttons for you again this year. But we've also added a few more "personal" buttons to the mix. (You're doing what at BlogHer?)
