My big suggestion would be to come to Kansas City.  It is right here in the Heartland, and it ...more

BlogHer in 2008: Call in to get the scoop this Thursday at 9AM

We reviewed the survey, compiled the poll results, read your blog posts and comments, and we are ready to unveil our BlogHer in 2008 plans...this coming Thursday, September 27th at 9AM Pacific time. And we'd like to do it live and "in person" on a community conference call. We'll take about 15 minutes to outline our entire schedule for 2008, and then we'll have time for Q&A as well.

Confusing Personal with Professional at Blogher '07, OR the Root Word of Networking is WORK.

Although I have a category for blogging about blogging (I call it "Streaking the Quad") I try to use it sparingly. It quickly gets a little like like the kid on the cereal box holding a cereal box with a kid on the cereal box. Know what I mean? I said that last week's Blogher '07 wrap up post would be the last space given over to the conference on Notes to Self, and I meant it. But then I discovered that some conference attendees are hurting over the perception they were being overlooked or left out based on a social hierarchy. ...more

VEGAS, BABY? Where should BlogHer '08 be and more: Take the BlogHer '07 survey

It's here in all the excruciating (but mostly optional) detail you could ever want: The BlogHer '07 Post-Conference Survey. Can you skate by giving us your high level opinions on most aspects of the conference? Yes. Can you give your granular ratings and opinions on every single speaker and session you saw, on sponsors, on hotels? Yes. Can you take this survey even if you weren't there, because you'd like to give your feedback on what you hope we'll do in the future? Yes. ...more

Somewhere cool in the summer... Seattle, San Diego, Portland, Lake Tahoe, etc...

So this is my much overdue Blogher '07 wrap up. Honestly, I'm still absorbing it all. There is so much that has happened in my life this past year that took its toll on my spirit, and this conference was just the inspiration I needed. ...more

Chicago Conference Attendees Point To Chicago Shortcomings

Chicago Conference Attendees Point to Shortcomings ...more


It's been a week since I was at the 2007 BlogHer Conference and my tech life has taken off warp speed ever since. Listen folks. All I ever wanted to do was write. That's it. My computer has always served as a means to an end in fulfilling that objective. I had no desire to know software terminology or master any principals with regards to computer hardware. However, ever since I returned from Chicago, something about me has changed. It's as if I am experiencing a classic case of an invasion of the technology body snatchers. ...more

The W. Lakeshore responded positively to feedback!

Many times when I travel I'll receive an email asking me to evaluate the service given. I received an email from the W. Lakeshore the day after I returned home and I wrote back with what I felt was constructive criticism as well as praise for what I liked. I enjoyed my stay at the W. Lakeshore. I slept like a baby in those beds. The rooms were a quiet getaway from a very busy week, I loved the two meals I had at The Wave, and even the club atmosphere of the lounge didn't bug me. ...more

Most of the time it seems like they don't pay attention. I love that they not only responded to ...more

BlogHer in Second Life-514

I think it is safe to say you liked the Second Life version of BlogHer '07. 514 is my new favorite number. I'll explain why shortly. When I brought the idea to Elisa, Lisa, and Jory a few months ago, we agreed the virtual BlogHer was an experiment. The idea was to offer bloghers unable to travel to Illinois a way to attend and be a part of the conference. We were not sure how many of you would "attend" and in all honesty, we were not sure how it would all turn out. I'm not normally a numbers person (or avatar) but in this case, I'm making an exception for some amazing stats: ...more
