BlogHer is the largest network of women bloggers. Each year, the organization hosts a conference to bring their community together to learn and meet one another. This year’s conference, BlogHer ’12, featured a number of insightful panels on blogging, social media, podcasting, etc. in addition to some outstanding speakers including Martha Stewart, Katie Couric, Soledad O’Brien, Christy Turlington, Malaak Compton Rock. This year, via satellite, President Obama addressed conference attendees.
This past weekend, we were pleased to run into three of our very own hosts at the BlogHer ’12 Conference. Host Lara Galloway of Mom Biz Solutions with Lara Galloway, The Mom Biz Coach spoke on a panel about Streamlining Your Technical Toolkit: How to Do More with Less and Host Deborah Shane of Deborah Shane Metropolis spoke on a panel entitled Podcasting 101. We also ran into Host Kathy Crowley of Talking with Toastmasters who was a conference attendee.
If you missed out on BlogHer ’12 this year, don’t fret because BlogHer ’13 is already in the works and will be landing in Chicago next year. Read more about it here. And if you are a woman blogger or interested in starting your own blog, take the time to become part of the BlogHer community.
