Never been to a BlogHer Conference before? You're not alone. I mean, you're really not alone!  There will be lots of first-timers at the conference this year, so we thought it would be nice to set up a mixer just for you before the conference kicks-off. When: Thursday, July 17 Time: 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Where: Westin St. Francis 
We're very pleased to announce that this year, every session at BlogHer Business was recorded on video! So whether you attended and want a refresher or weren't able to be there in person, we have a great excuse for you to sit back, plug in your headphones, and explain to your boss that you're actually working.
I wanted to post a brief reminder that our special earlybird pricing for BlogHer '08 ends tonight at midnight! We haven't published the full agenda yet, but you can get an overview of the event (and our keynote speaker) here. You can also get logistical info here.
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!
With BlogHer Business only six weeks away, we thought it was high time to provide your blog bling. What's that? You're not registered yet? You can sign up right here. (And if you're not quite sure if you're going to go, you can always check out the agenda, speakers, and other attendees who'll be there first.) But for those of you who are planning to be there, why not say it loud and proud:
As you may have heard, we are taking the BlogHer Annual Event on the road! Following BlogHer Business in April and BlogHer '08 in July, we will be bringing six, one-day conferences to cities along the East Coast. Each conference will include a full day of programming and conclude with a cocktail reception. And while the agenda will be similar from city to city, each event will be unique in its mix of content, speakers and attendees (so you can feel free to join us at as many different locations as you want!).
No, BlogHer isn't requiring spooning this year at our annual conference in San Francisco. For those of you who are concerned about the bed situation at the Westin St. Francis, rest assured (as it were) that reserving rooms with two double beds IS an option. If you tried to reserve a room with two beds and got an error message, this was due to a glitch in the Westin's system that has been resolved. If you have already reserved a room and got a single instead of a double and would like to request a double, you may call to let them know: (866) 379-0399.
