Updated: BlogHer Entrepreneurs ‘12 kicks off today in Santa Clara, CA for two days of learning, mentoring, networking and connecting. The buzz on Twitter and blogs is picking up as people are already traveling and getting excited for the event. I’ve been following along, a bit bummed I can’t attend with all of these amazing women, and thought I’d share some of that fun and inspiring buzz with you.
As you'll see via these tweets, the official Twitter hashtag for the conference is #blogherent12. Be sure to follow along today and Friday, as we know our conference attendees are great at sharing pertinent quotes, amazing photos and fun snippets of conversation throughout their experience. We'll have day-in-tweet recaps, liveblogs starting this evening, and an overall post-conference buzz post, so keep checking back over the next days!

Maybe you’re just curious about how people take an idea and turn it into a business. Whatever the case, we wanted to share some of the awesome people behind our conference this year, beyond what their speaker profiles have to say....more
Talk to any successful person, and I’d place money that they would have something to say about the person or people who helped them get where they are today. Whether directly or indirectly, no one really sails a ship to success island alone. That’s why BlogHer Entrepreneurs is awesome for those of you looking to set sail this year in your business endeavors -- or even just start building your boat....more
