If you were unable to attend BlogHer's conference in San Francisco last week, never fear. BlogHer, the community for women who blog, have announced that they are taking the show on the road in a spectacle called the Reach Out Tour 2008
They will be condensing their annual event into six one-day extravaganzas in Boston, DC, Nashville, Greensboro, Atlanta and New Orleans. BlogHer
will focus on topics that seem to resonate strongest in each city and look for your local bloggers to lead the discussions. The one-day conference will also feature a broad range of topics and speakers, cocktail parties for networking and socializing, and a little bit of local flavor.
Local Experts Wanted
Though you can register to attend each and every one of the events, BlogHer is also looking for local experts in each city who want to pass along their hard-won expertise to their fellow bloggers.
For those new to the blogosphere, a Blogging Basics
track is available. Each participant will receive instructions beforehand so that they can set up their own blog in time. This track will be comprised of the same three sessions in each city, but local bloggers will make up the staff for those sessions.
If you think you could help lead one of the following sessions, email firstname.lastname@example.org
. Sessions in this track include:
* I Blog, Therefore I Am ________, Figuring Out Your Blogging Mojo
* 6 Steps to Personalize, Polish & Promote Your Blog
* Managing Information Overload
