11 Highlights from BlogHer '11

Have Fun - Do Good

Last week I spoke at BlogHer '11, a gathering of over 3,000 women bloggers. One of the main reasons I go to BlogHer is to connect with old friends and to make new ones like: Beth of My Plastic-free Life. It was my fifth, and favorite BlogHer conference, largely because of the location.

Honored to be BlogHer Tech featured blogger of the week

For as long as I’ve been blogging, there’s been BlogHer empowering women to express themselves through technology. The fact that it comes from BlogHer makes it all the more special to me
