We are pleased to publish the preliminary schedule for BlogHer '06 Day Two.
A few important notes:
1. Please look for a post specifically about the Room of Your Own sessions in a little while. (UPDATE: Here's the link to the Room of Your Own candidates.) In the BlogHer spirit, we are going to publish the great candidates we've had for the Room of Your Own sessions and see what excites people.
To prepare and research our panel at SXSW on Naked/Personal Blogging on a work blog/in a work setting, we're conducting a pulse survey of female (and male)bloggers on their attitudes toward mixing the personal with the professional on their blogs.
Today Hugh from SXSW Interactive updates the world on their roster of female speakers (120 at last count) and shows BlogHer some linky love on the topic.
Special thanks to all our friends at BlogHer for helping to recruit so many creative and qualified women to SXSW.
Thought I'd call out the one session we decided to change from the original Day One schedule:
Gone is the session on Syndication.
When we took a look we realized that syndication is a part of many larger discussions:
In preparation for a panel BlogHer will be presenting at the SXSW Interactive festival, we would like to get a sense of where women stand on the issue of mixing personal and business blogging
We would appreciate it if you took a few moments (5 to 15 minutes, depending on your answers) to share your thoughts on this topic.
As promised the Hyatt San Jose has created a custom online site for BlogHers to reserve their hotel rooms. At that fabulous $75/night rate. The rate is available for the nights of 7/25/06 - 08/01/06 (vacation anyone?) And just so you know, they were awesome to offer us the special rate for all of those nights, while putting us on the hook for a minimum number of rooms reserved for one night only, the 28th. I know some of you have already reserved via the Hyatt phone line, but for those of you like me who prefer transacting all business online, you are now good to go.
Save these dates:
BlogHer Conference '06
Friday July 28 and Saturday July 29, 2006
San Francisco Bay Area
In 2005 we asked, "Where are the women bloggers?" Women who attended the conference answered that question with a resounding, "Right here!"
In 2006, in line with the goal of manifesting leadership by wired women (see the BlogHer Vision), we will ask, "How is your blog changing the world?"
