Conference Day: 
Day 1
Wow! Last year was the first year we joined forced with Ann Imig from Ann's Rants, and curator of the Listen to your Mother Shows, and it did not disappoint! Inspired by what you had just seen at the BlogHer Voices of the Year Community Keynote, you came out in droves to share more stories. We are once again sponsoring the Listen to Your Mother tour in 2012, and since LTYM is already a "show on the road," we invited it back to BlogHer '12. Unlike LTYM or Voices of the Year, this will not be a pre-selected or curated experience. This is more like a karaoke-style open mic: Pick your post, throw your name in the hat, and get the chance to read it out loud for other bloggers who are there to do the same... and who are likely all equally one-part-nervous, one-part-excited. BlogHer is for every kind of blogger, so we are adding a "Letter to Your Mother" component...because we all have a mother! So, while you're readying your submissions for the Voices of the Year, keep an eye out for posts that you might also want to read during the LTYM Open Mic Salon!
