Updated Day Two schedule with Room of Your Own selections

BlogHer Original Post

Although we're still nailing down some speakers for Day Two, you'll find a lot of changes when you check out the Schedule, including (drum roll, please) the six Room of Your Own sessions that the community clamored for:

Get Deeply Geeky: BlogHers want to talk technology and gender. Is the web itself a feminine construct? How about open source? Join Laura Scott, mir verburg, Anne Zelenka, Nancy White & futurist Melanie Swan.

EduBlogging: Barbara Ganley from Middlebury College, Laura Blankenship from Bryn Mawr and Barbara Sawhill from Oberlin will discuss using blogging in the classroom & to raise academic profiles.

Business Blog Case Studies: Yvonne DiVita, Susan Getgood & Toby Bloomberg lead a rap session with you, the BlogHers, about what worked (and what didn't) when implementing blogs for business.

Let's Talk About Sex: Join Susie Bright and other blogging woman who prove: when it comes to talking sex online, women don't just like to watch!

Group Blogging: Mandy Moore from the KnittingBloggers community, Iris Rodriguez & Veronica Hernandez from Smashcast and Sarah Gilbert & Asha Dornfest from Portland Urban Mamas are among those who have dealt with the practical & inspirational realities of building online blog communities.

Transforming Your Life. Yes, with blogging: Nina Smith, Deni Bonet and Cathy Kirkman each have very different stories about how they used blogging to make radical changes that transformed their lives. A lot of other BlogHers do too. Get inspired. Get an idea.

There are other new speakers on the schedule too, and more to come. Stay tuned for more announcements.

Congratulations to all the Room of Your Own session leaders, and thanks to all of you who emailed, commented and voted in our survey!
