WordPress bloggers conference
If you use WordPress as your blogging software, you might want to attend WordCamp 2007. The two-day meet is in San Francisco on July 21-22 and costs all of 25 bucks for a ticket.
Among the speakers you'll find Lorelle VanFossen, whose Lorelle on WordPress blog is the official word on WordPress. The only other female name on the roster of speakers is usability expert Liz Danzico who works for both Daylife and Rosenfeld Media. Dave Winer is among the male majority on the speakers list.
Lorelle on WordPress is a good blog for bloggers in general, not just WordPress users. It often contains tips and information that apply to any blog. No matter what your blogging software is, you might want to give Lorelle a read.
