Two Cocktail Venues To Try During BlogHer Food '10

One thing I learned at BlogHer Food last year -- you don't have to stray far from the conference site to have one heck of a time and plenty of beverages to keep you sated both during the conference and during the after-hours activities. Last year, I recommended a set of bars that I will still stand by this year. If you didn't get to them, I encourage you to try them out. But this year, I have two additions to the San Francisco cocktail scene that I very much consider worth your attention while you're in town for BlogHer Food 2010. ...more

Small Business Jobs Act: What Businesses and Bloggers Need to Know

If, like me, you're a sole proprietor or otherwise one-woman shop whose business is either based in social media, freelance writing, or marketing that makes use of social media for some other good or service you provide, you might experience all the struggles of a small business but feel left out of the jump-starts available for "bigger" small businesses.
