BlogHer 11, Women Create Media, Summer is Over

Next week is a big week. I’ll be speaking at Women Create Media and then scooting on over to BlogHer. I attened a BlogHer conference two years ago in Chicago, skipped New York in August 2010 (if you’re from NY you have to admit there’s no good reason to go there in August) and now I’m ready to give it another try in 2011.
