I Left BlogHer '13 Feeling Like a Loser, but Maybe I'm Just on My Own Path

I left BlogHer '13 feeling like a loser. This was not the fault of the hardworking women who organized and led the event. BlogHer is the world's largest blogging conference for women and I felt quite privileged to have had the opportunity to travel to Chicago for this year's event, which was held July 25-27. The breakout sessions were informative and to call the keynote speakers inspiring would be an understatement. I was in awe of the confidence of Ree Drummond (better known as the Pioneer Woman) and can't count how many times she made me laugh out loud. ...more

BlogHer '12 Interviews: What Did You Learn at a Previous BlogHer?

We're one more week closer to BlogHer '12 in New York City this August. As everyone starts to prepare for their trip, I thought it would be a good idea to ask a few of our speakers what attendees might learn, experience or expect at the conference. I think that's always a big worry for those newbies coming to a conference, so who better than to ask than previous attendees who are speaking this year. My question was: Tell us something interesting or surprising you learned at a previous BlogHer conference....more
