We're unveiling this beta site on Monday, Jan. 30...
...and when it does, I hope to see as many of you in person as can make it to the Thirsty Bear brewery in San Francisco. We're having a meet-up from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. Here are the directions.
Until then, thanks in advance for not deliberately linking to this alpha site. I realize links are getting around via search engines, but unfortunately it won't be possible for users to actually register and join us until Monday. If they are sent here before then I'm worried they'll be frustrated - we won't have the full and final FAQ or the servers ready to support users at our usual URL before Monday.
So watch for the "alpha" banner on our logo to switch to "beta," and the URL to switch to http://www.blogher.com. Then you'll know the backend of the site is ready for primetime.
You all already are ready for primetime -- these surfing guides and blogrolls are amazing! I am deeply grateful--and looking forward to watching users appreciate your work. Thanks.
