I am completely blown away by this years BlogHer conference and I haven’t even left home yet. The past two years that I’ve gone there have been between 2500-3000 bloggers attend. This year there will be 4500 – that’s just amazing. Not only will there by that many bloggers (mostly women – moms – and even some men) but we have the opportunity to connect with some pretty influential people.
Sure it’s nice to connect with the fabulous brands that help sponsor the conference (that’s always fun) but I’m talking about celebrities and leaders.
This year at Blogher the organizers are bringing us the following people who want to talk with us:
- Martha Stewart is the Keynote on Friday
- Katie Couric is the Keynote on Saturday
- Soledad O’Brien, Christy Turlington Burns, and Malaak Compton-Rock are speaking in the Women Influencers as Change Agents
- and finally they just announced that President Barack Obama will be speaking via live video stream on Thursday.
The conference organizers have also invited Mitt Romney but they haven’t heard if he will be joining us yet or not.
That’s a pretty powerful lineup to digest. It just speaks for the true power of social media and the impact that every blogger can make as a community.
