BlogHer: Martha, Katie, Soledad And Feminine Domination
I’m again at Huff Post after a 3-week running a blog hiatus. It was a gift I gave myself.
Throughout my three-week blogging break, I had a chance to loosen up, unWINE unwind and rest my mind so that I can proceed to add worth to the blogging group. It isn’t any easy feat to manage an engaged viewers as smart as YOU and continuously present fresh, captivating content. In order to take action, this mama needs to have interaction in stimulating activities, reminiscent of studying Fifty Shades Of Gray Battle and Peace.
So… I relaxed by the lake.
I watched my children play happily on the beach in Maine.
I labored. A lot really.
I went on a number of dates with my hubby.
And then…. BloghHer!
What is BlogHer, you might ask Effectively, it is three days of magic. There is admittedly no different way to explain BlogHer as anyting apart from magical.
I quote Huffington Submit blogger Darryle Pollack, whom I really met at BlogHer this weekend in New York, and her article. That is what makes BlogHer so distinctive…
Created in 2005 by three girls as a gathering for girls who blogged, BlogHer has multiplied in size — and importance — yearly since. Now a profitable web site, advertising community and Television channel the annual BlogHer convention is the jewel within the crown — where bloggers, marketers and sponsors come to connect. Four smaller conferences have additionally blossomed from it.
Twitter, blogs and social media channels have been buzzing about BlogHer for weeks. There’s advice, lists of tips– even lists of the lists of ideas.
So, why such a giant deal about BlogHer
I am unable to inform you.
Severely. There’s something for everyone, so BlogHer means various things to completely different folks…
In a world the place the Kardashians are the gold commonplace of success, for me, BlogHer represents a kernel of actuality, a supply of inspiration and an island of sanity where people are appreciated not for what they appear like or what they’ve, however for who they’re. Generally that looks like a uncommon thing.
And for me that’s a big deal. Maybe Martha Stewart and Katie Couric (audio system at Blogher) understand the ability of that, too.” -Darryle Pollack
