Arianna Huffington Returns to Keynote BlogHer in 2014

In May of 2005, a scant two months before the first BlogHer Conference, a new site called the Huffington Post was born. That was back when trying to build a business via blogging was uncharted territory. One year later, Arianna Huffington was a featured keynote speaker at BlogHer '06, our second annual event.

Dear Mommy Bloggers - A Kind Heads-up If You're Going to BlogHer '14

This was originally published on my blog,  Clothesline Confessional, soon after getting back home from BlogHer '13.

I have since made some peace with this news, but I can't help but think about other non-Mommy bloggers who might be in the same position that I was in last year. From the archives:  Dear Mommy bloggers,...more
