BlogHer '07 Rocks!

I just wanted to let everyone know that if you couldn't make the BlogHer '07 conference, you need to plan ahead for '08! I've had a fantastic time interacting with all the other women (and men, too!) here at BlogHer '07. BlogHer has done a fantastic job of not only arranging quality presentations and bringing in the very best exhibitors (who, I have to say, are incredibly generous with all the swag they are passing out--it's like trick-or-treating!), but also creating opportunities for all of us to get together and socialize. ...more

Privacy, Exposure, Risk

When I began my blog, I only used my first name and mentioned that I live in New York City. I figured that there were probably thousands of Suzannes living in New York, and I'd be fine. My fear was less about being harassed than about my employer reading my nutty ramblings (even though they had nothing to do with my job) and deciding that my services were no longer needed. Over time, I realized that the powers that be at my work didn't know what blogging was, and if I wanted a writing career I would need to use my name, so I did. ...more

My full name isn't anywhere on my blog, but it's not that difficult to figure it out. I'm pretty ...more

Live from the (virtual) BlogHer Conference in Second Life!

This is amazing. Although in reality, I am at home, in bed, in pain (and in my pajamas), I am still able to attend the BlogHer Conference virtually using this program called Second Life.

Soon we will get up and walk around and “talk” to each other, making connections and renewing friendships that we’ve made through blogging. I am so enamoured with this technology. ...more
