Just a quick note to let you know that I'll be attending the BlogHer conference in New York this week! Last year's conference was nothing short of funtastic, and I'm looking forward to hanging out with my blog friends from near and far while we learn and network and revel in the kind of solidarity that can only be found when thousands of strong women come together under one roof. Boy howdy, good times are there to be had!
While I'm in town, I'll also have a chance to catch up with some old friends who've made their way out East...it seems I end up in NY every 5 years or so, which I don't think is really often enough. I can't wait to squeeze in visits with some of my favorite people in between work and conferences!
And on a semi-related note, Disqus and I are hosting a couple of awesome events -- if you're coming to the conference, or if you just happen to be in NYC, you should check 'em out!
On Thursday, August 2, we're hosting a panel discussion at the Union Square Ventures offices. The discussion will be centered around discovering and engaging with your online community, and we have five awesome, awesome panelists (and an awesome moderator, too!). Check out the Eventbrite page for more information, and to RSVP!
On Friday, August 3, we're hosting a happy hour at Faces and Names, a bar/restaurant near the conference hotel - If you want to mix and mingle with me and some folks from Disqus (and other Disqus users), check out the Eventbrite page to RSVP!
Hopefully, I'll have some time to blog with updates throughout the week, but if you don't hear from me for a week, you know why ;)
